Free online demo version here: http://maxandthemagicmarker.com/demo/

I haven't played this on Wiiware yet, but since I've still got a few points left I think this is a pick up... having played through the the demo this seems creative, challenging, and is a hoot to see what you can get away with.

I could see the gameplay getting repetitive for some people after a few levels, kinda reminds me of World of Goo in that respect. I love WoG and Scribblenauts, this one seems to follow the same logic of inventing your own method to reach the goal. Very cool!

Yeah, I've heard good things about this, just haven't had the chance to pick it up yet.

Finally picked this up and gave it a try, and it's really fun.

Don't know if you played Drawn to Life, but this is more what I pictured that being like when I first heard of the concept.

In Drawn to Life, they'd tell you where you were allowed to put something, and you'd just design the look of it, not anything that really affected the game.

In this, you can draw whatever you want, wherever you want, similarly to Crayon Physics Deluxe (a PC game), and then interact with it however you want.

As far as I can tell so far, the physics aren't as advanced as in Crayon Physics Deluxe, so no drawing wheels and hinges and that sort of thing, but this also has more of a game attached to it, since it's a platformer at heart.

I played the demo and...well...it sucks with a touchpad

I'll probably get this on the Wii.

I picked this one up over the weekend, and it's hard; fun, but there's a good challenge there, especially if you want to get everything in the levels. It's more platformer than WoG but less puzzle-y, and slightly less "anything goes" than Scribblenauts... kind of a hybrid of the two, actually. I'm mid way through the second level (out of 3 it looks like), and while I've not been flat-out stumped by a puzzle, there's been a few that tried my skill and patience.

Tons of fun for 1,000 points. Anyone over 7-8 can play (little ones will probably get frustrated with the controls), so you could easily make a game weekend out of this one if you've got nothing planned.

Best tool in the game is a straight line, and if you're as poor an artist as I am, that's tough!
