  • Summary: [WiiWare] In the game Max has a magic marker, that makes it possible for him to draw anything he wants – and it becomes real! Unfortunately the monster he drew also became real – so he's got to find and catch it before it causes too much trouble. [Press Play]

  1. A new splendid platform game arouses player creativity.
  2. Charming, clever and compelling all at once, this game does everything right.
  3. A clever mix of World Of Goo and Drawn To Life that makes good use of the Wii and your own imagination.
  4. Fans of platformers looking for a new twist will love this game. The 15 levels will keep you busy for roughly 3-4 hours, which isn't bad for a downloadable title, even at 1000 Wii Points, although I would have preferred it to be a bit longer.
  5. This is a lovely game with an interesting gameplay feature – but why does it only offer three hours of fun?
  6. Tight ink limitations force creative solutions, but once learnt, certain tricks undermine the action. [Feb 2010, p.94]
  7. I can only say that the majority of this game does not live up to all it can be, and seeing the creativity and challenge that some of the levels in the third world show off only highlights this fact.

    Me and my little sister got this over the weekend, and I LOVE IT!! Max is so cute! Great graphics, best music in a Wiiware game ever.

Tip: Don't just do stairs! Expand
