Max & the Magic Marker revolves around Max as he tries to defeat a bad guy that he created. The game is clearly designed for a younger audience to enjoy, but should be just as enjoyable for adults.
The design of the game is pretty inspired; the player's avatar is a drawing of the main character (Max) that adventures through a series of different world drawings trying to capture the big evil that he originally drew. Along the way he can pause the adventure and draw simple objects into the world to interact with, like weights to crush enemies or boxes to climb on. Ink for the magic pen can be found throughout each stage that allows Max to continue drawing bigger objects.
