An Outstanding Game!
by Guri, USA - Feb 21st 2010

I have to agree with Randall, this is one amazing game. I played it until my son came along and got addicted to it as well.

Max & The Magic Marker Icon
Its amazing, the imagination.
by Frigidman™, USA - Feb 21st 2010

Sometimes, out of the blue a game comes along and it is simply fun, and awesome. This game has to go in with a small list of keepers for me.

The graphics are extremely well done, if you have the hardware to click on maximum (or even second best is still incredible). The fluidity of movement, the artistic sketch like drawings which are rendered, and even the little things like ambiance make the graphics a treat to see. The use of physics, with hand drawings, and action, was surprising actually. Good one, as your drawings have weight, and can be pushed around!

Audio is ok, has a silly pop n rock musical score in most places, much as you would think for a child's mind drawing silly things. Other sound effects are clear, clean, well done for the situations and moments. Certainly not thrown-together.

In fact, nothing about this game seems like it is thrown together. A lot of thought and planning went into making very unique.

I wont ramble on about everything, just wanted to make a mention that this game is pretty darn cute and certainly enjoyable!

weirdest puzzles ever
by Naomi Smits, Netherlands - Feb 20th 2010

This is not only a fun search game, but it has the weirdest and most fun puzzels at the end of each level that i've ever seen! And so many levels too. Never boring, this one!

Shutter Island Icon
Very disappointing & not worth $20
by DonnáDarko, USA - Feb 16th 2010

First, I heard that this game crashes every time on every Mac when played in windowed mode. I didn't know this when I downloaded the trial, so can't verify. This seems like a very hastily thrown together game, probably so it would come out around the same time as the movie. The graphics of the outside, non-game-play areas, are very nice, but the graphics of the game-play areas are just okay. But worst of all, the items to find seem "pasted" on and seem to "jump out" at you. The only ways they can make it seem difficult to find these pasted-on items is by making the scenes really dark, by having flashing "electricity" and by superimposing "migraine headache" effects onto the screen. The one mini game I played was a math game and way too easy; a third grader could have done it. One of the things you do is collect items and when they're all collected you click on a hot spot which opens up with three or four circles into which you must laboriously move your collected items, one by one by one. There is absolutely no challenge in this, just boring click and drag. This gets you some information or opens another scene.

I recommend you not buy this game at least until the price comes down.

Not a bad game. However it is easy and short. Would have liked more of a challenge and more levels.

Fun game. Challenging. Love courtroom scene. More variety in script would be more fun and challenging. Like it!
