One of the best kid-aimed iOS titles, Max and the Magic Marker, will be hitting PlayStation Network later this Fall, with HD graphics and Move controller support. The game had already spread to PC, Wii and Nintendo DS as well.
The game is a puzzle platformer in which the gamer plays Max, who receives a special pen in the mail. When he draws a picture of a monster with the magic pen, the beast comes alive in his book and goes on a rampage. It's up to Max to clean up the mess he created by using the pen to draw himself in the book to save the day.
The game has Max collecting orange ink balls to fill his pen with, then using the ink to draw on the screen to apply real-world physics to solve puzzles. The ink can be sucked back into the pen after being used to draw on the screen. For example, if Max stands on a see saw, he can draw a heavy object in the air on the other side to catapult him off the see saw. It's assumable that the game will use the Move in the same way the Wii remote was used: to aim at the ink balls to collect them and to write objects in the air with the Move controller.
The game has no price, but will likely cost $9.99 USD.
