    If you're in the market for a solid platformer that utilizes an intuitive drawing system, then don't hesitate to pick up Max & The Magic Marker during your next PSN Shopping Spree.

    The real fun here comes from dedicating yourself to getting through each stage with three stars, which will require an acute level of attention to speed-running while collecting items all the while. But Trophy hunters should beware of Max & the Magic Marker's grueling all-Bronze Trophy roster.

    Max and the Magic Marker is an innovative and amusing platformer. Even though it's suitable for a younger crowd, older gamers will still enjoy it's ingenious challenges.

    The concept is good but the controls are unprecise and the design is somewhat anonymous.

    I struggle with claiming the game is great for younger, uninitiated gamers because I cut my teeth on much more challenging, varied, and interesting platformers at a young age, but that audience is there. For the rest of us, Max and the Magic Marker is a cute and fun, albeit simplistic, romp through an upbeat, pretty, childlike fantasy world that does some neat things but struggles to stay consistently engaging.

    Ultimately, Max and the Magic Marker may be like many other puzzle and platforming games, but it's rarely as accomplished.

    Max & the Magic Marker makes for a decent kids game to add to your Move enabled collection, but despite having some interesting gameplay points it stops short of doing anything deep with the mechanics at hand.
