Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that Max and the Magic Marker is the app version of a computer game of the same name. Its story is an imaginative one, in which a young boy named Max uses a special marker to sketch a blobby bad guy into one of his drawings, only to see that villain come to life and wreak havoc among Max’s artwork. Max then draws himself into the picture and sets out to stop the Gobos (as they are called) from destroying his sketch world. The game is a great physics lesson, as every item that kids draw into the scene reacts to gravity as it would in the real world. There is some minor cartoony violence, as Max squishes the Gobos to defeat them — they generally splat into nothingness, but larger ones let out a purplish splash. There are two versions of this game, which are the same except for the high definition graphics found in the iPad version called Max and the Magic Marker for iPad ($4.99). The iPhone/iPod Touch version only cost $1.99.

Max and the Magic Marker is a Strategy Games app that is designed for those 7.  The app has an overall rating of 5 out of 5 and a learning rating of 3 out of 5.
