Mac|Life has posted a new review of Max & The Magic Marker from Press Play. The game puts players in the role of Max who must use his newly acquired Magic Marker to put a stop to the monsters rampaging through his drawings. Mac|Life gave the game a score of 4.5 out of 5.

From the review:

Ingeniously, the marker and the drawings arenít just story line gimmicks--they make up the core gameplay. You control Maxís movements with the W, A, S, and D keys and use the mouse to control the marker. To solve each levelís clever, physics-based puzzles, you need to draw objects on the screen, which then become real, physical parts of the game world. For example, to jump to a high platform, you could stand Max on one end of a seesaw and draw a big rock in the air above the other end--itíll fall and catapult Max into the sky. To keep rain or falling rocks from hitting Max, draw him an umbrella. To get him across a chasm, draw a bridge or some stairs.

Adding another layer of strategy, pressing the Spacebar freezes the action, and the graphics change from a smooth cartoon rendition to a childís hand-drawn style. But you can still use the marker. So sometimes youíll need to jump into midair, freeze the game with the Spacebar, and draw a missing step or ramp underneath Max.
