There’s a monster on the loose and it’s destroying everything in its way! Save the day and help Artie to rebuild his world, using a very special magic pencil. In a land where basic shapes are the building blocks, children can be the hero whilst learning how simple triangles, squares and circles come together to create everything they see around them, from a butterfly to a building, and a car to an ice cream shop!

Artie’s Magic Pencil is an interactive learning adventure that teaches children the fundamentals of drawing to inspire them to get creative both on and off the screen! By matching up the dots and tracing the shapes, children will see lines and shapes come to life! With a fun story and delightful handcrafted animations, Artie’s Magic Pencil will help children learn the power of art and of helping others.

Editors’ Notes

Doodling gets imaginations going—and this app has ours running wild. That’s one reason we’re so delighted by this adorable introduction to drawing. Tracing simple shapes to fill a storybook world encourages fine motor skills, and we think kids and parents will love sharing the excitement as each doodle comes to life.

Cute; hard to draw perfectly straight

You draw lines from point A to point B and so on to make shapes to build things. Then you can pick the color of it and add some shapes if you wish. It gets redundant quickly and one thing I noticed is that although I am an adult the margin for drawing the lines is kinda high, so you have to make sure your hand is pretty darn steady or else it doesn't register. It's a charming game with a great premises and cute simple graphics but it falls short of being unique or memorable--it's not very original either; overall nice.

So cute!!

Me being older than the age it's made for and still liking it is amazing. Or I'm just weird. XD But I love the focus on shapes! The art work is really cute and it has a tiny plot! I was able to get this free bc it was the free app of the week (which tells you it purty Gud) idk how much it actually is but I think it should be around erm 99 cents
