can't compare to Trine or Trine 2. But not bad effort overall. Would feel more at place on a touchscreen smartphone or iPod Touch.

A fun and not very hard platformer that focuses on using magical ink to draw your way out of obstacles and hazards.

Very nice artistic, drawn style. The marker is a bit big, blocking sight, but game-play is fun with different aspects to drawing. A drawing physics platformer.
