Max & the Magic Marker is a physics based 2D puzzle platformer, in which the player controls the boy Max and his Magic Marker. While Max enables good old platforming fun, the marker provides the game’s signature feature: the ability for the player to draw directly inside the game world where everything drawn becomes physical objects. This feature is used to complete levels and overcome challenges but it also provides the player with a unique tool that in itself is fun to play around with.
Max is a young boy, and like most boys he loves to draw. One day he gets a mysterious marker in the mail. There is no letter attached – only the plain orange marker. Max decides to test it right away, sits down and starts drawing. He draws a monster but as soon as he finishes the lines on the paper start moving and to Max’s great surprise the monster runs off the paper and into another drawing. Stunned Max now sees how the Monster messes around with his drawings. Max realizes that he has to stop the monster. So he draws himself on the same drawing that the monster is in and immediately finds himself inside the drawing. The game begins.

THOUGHTS FROM THE GAME REVIEW NETWORK
One of our members had the opportunity to review this game and here’s what she thought.
Nicole @ SAHM Reviews – “When I was first introduced to Max and the Magic Marker to review for the Game Review Network, I thought it would be a great game for the kids. … Miss M, who is currently in 1st grade, took to it quickly. Took her no time at all to figure out how to draw different pictures. She tried a variety of things and caught on much quicker than I realized. I was amazed to see that she grasped the physics of many of the situations so well. …I tried the game out and found it totally addictive. Like I would sit down to play under the guise that it is “research for a thorough review.” And two hours later, I would find myself still… uh-huh… “researching.” …Overall, the game is a lot of fun.”
