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.

Kids can choose to play Artie’s Magic Pencil either by following the storyline through Artie’s world or by tapping the map in the top corner to return to, redraw and customize their favourite objects as many times as they wish.

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.

Good story


This game has a very good story plot, it made me cry at the end. You play as a little girl who walk to the right for the rest of her eternity life, or when my ipad dies. You can also draw a massive variety of shapes and it somehow turn into houses and stuff. I found myself playing this game for 6 hours straight in my mothers basement. I must recommend to any adult out there.

Hi there, and thanks for the great review!

Great concept, needs more levels.


My son loved this game so much he played through it it one day. Which is fine for a free app but I would like more from a paid app.
