Summary: My son loves playing this game when he's at his friend house. It was on his Christmas list so I decided to purchase it online. When he tried to play the game after he received it, it wouldn't play in his DS or load. I had to return it. I got great service for returning it and I am getting a full refund. They responded to my email in 24 hours!
Summary: My older son came in the other day and said that he found a DS game in the street. He gave it to his little sister who was really excited that he gave it to her because she has Drawn to Life and Drawn to Life Spongebob which she loves. I tried playing Marker Man, but couldn't go very far. I expected that I'm an instructions reader. My daughter played it and was frustrated after about 10 minutes.
Summary: I was told this game was sort of a combo of Drawn To Life, which I love, and Scribblenauts, which I also own and like only it's a little hard at times but at least IT works! As for this game, I gave it ONE star....for a good idea. Shame it doesn't work, the other 4 stars it could have had are.... 1. No tutorial that it deffinately needed, 2. No save point at all, so...since the game is practically impossible, you get to play the 1st one...
Summary: If you are thinking about purchasing this game i would honestly say rent it first because this is not a game for everyone as it was clearly not a game for me. A couple things that makes this game very difficult to play is a lack of tutorials. The instruction manual isn't helpful either.
Summary: I bought this for my 8 yr old son who likes to play Magic Pen on the computer. But he found this game too difficult and I found it frustrating. Sometimes you can't draw a line for unknown reasons, and it's hard to know which way you are supposed to be going. It's not a game I would recommend.
Summary: This review is by my teenaged son, approved by me: Clearly, some half-brained developer saw trailers for Drawn to Life and said, "Hey, why don't I make a game like that?" Clearly, that developer knew nothing whatsoever about good game design. Clearly, he also knew nothing about a good story. Read on to find out what I mean. Story: 0/10 - An epic fail. A doodle-boy is playing with his dog one day, when it suddenly vanishes into thin air. He must try to find it.
Summary: From the bad graphics, controls, and lack of any idea of what is going on, this game gets a zero in my opinion. I drew a line and got stuck under it and could not move. I would not recommend this game to anyone.
Summary: This game might be fun, but if you're left-handed (as I am) you wouldn't know it! To move Marker Man, you use the "+" control pad on the left..... Leaving you only your right hand to write with! I haven't figured out a way to successfully use this game left-handed. Turning upside down might work, but it's kinda hard to move Marker Man around on his head and really have a sense of what's happening...
Summary: This game was a huge disapointment for me. I play these games for relaxation and this one came with no real instructions. The worst thing is there is NO SAVE OPTION. If you get killed, which is easily done because of the lack of any know how on what you are doing, it will send you back to the very beginning. I have never made it past more than a couple levels before having to start over and over and over and that is just not fun.
