Max and the Magic Marker, developed by Press Play, won the Independent Games Festival 2010 D2D Vision Award last year, and today EA Mobile has published the game for the iPhone and iPad. Max and the Magic Marker is a puzzle platformer with a unique drawing mechanic. You control the young boy Max, who received a mysterious marker in the mail. The first thing Max draws is a monster. As soon as the pen leaves the paper, the monster comes to life and jumps into another drawing. Oh no, it must be stopped! Max draws himself onto the page and the chase begins. Here is more:
The game is based on a basic drawing mechanic, where everything drawn becomes physical objects. The object of the game is to get our beloved hero Max to the end of each level. This requires skill controlling Max and overcoming dangers and obstacles, and creative thinking when tools are needed like a big hat to avoid the acid rain or a seesaw when something up high must be fixed.
