Product Description

Product Description

Drawn to Life takes players to the next level of interaction and creativity on the Nintendo DS. Your exact drawings populate the game, and no tedious animating or image manipulation is necessary. In other words, your drawing comes to life! Not an artist? Tracing templates are available to guide users to create works of art. Customize your Hero with special stamps and patterns!

Drawn to Life is a unique adventure game for DS and DSi in which the events of the game are truly in your hands. Utilizing the DS or DSi's touch technology, players literally create everything used in the game by simply drawing what they need. This includes everything from items, weapons and the game hero himself or herself. The result is a level of customization rarely seen and a level of creative family-friendly adventure unmatched on Nintendo's handheld gaming platforms.

Drawn to Life game logo
The Raposa were once a prosperous race of beings, but that was before they were forgotten by the creator and the treachery of Wilfre. Wilfre was once a trusted member of the Raposa, until he stole the Book of Life and tore valuable page from it. Since then a shadow-like evil has covered the Raposa's village with darkness. Even worse, this evil has stolen the sun, moon, sky, and even most of the Raposa themselves. But you can help save the Raposa's dying world and restore it to its former greatness by creating a hero who through his imagination and the stroke of a pen can draw the stolen world of the Raposa back to life.

Drawn to Life is truly the first video game in which the stylus is mightier than the sword. With a stroke of the DS or DSi stylus, create a hero that you can use to fly, run, jump, swim, or smash your way through new worlds and pit against dangerous enemies. Complete your adventure by creating weapons, tools, animals, plants, and almost everything in the game. Play as your creations and conquer a variety of environments, including snowy fields, tropical islands, and dark forests. The game features multiple game modes including: Village Mode, where players play mini-games, affect the story by interacting with NPCs, drawing items to help the Raposa and buy items using in-game currency; Adventure Mode, a series of side-scrolling platformer levels where enemies are battled, Raposa are saved and items are hidden; and Draw Mode, where players create objects, weapons and their hero utilizing several templates. Found and created items can be shared with other players via a Nintendo Wi-Fi connection and during wireless DS multi-card play.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun game with tonsa new innovations October 19, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game, to put it bluntly, is a combination of Mario, Animal Crossing, and a coloring book. This is the coloring book part. It is really fun because you get to draw your own hero and a lot of times in your adventure draw like a cloud to get across a gap. you get to draw with pixel-by-pixel drawing if you want and if you do you can just use a template or make your own which is quite hard in the scope of things. This is wher the Mario part comes in. You have to go in to 4 separate gates which represent 4 different realms. You go through side scrolling adventures which are excruciatingly long. You run, jump and ground pound just like in mario. Fun sidecrolling with boss battles at the end of every realm. This is the animal crossing part. You also can monitor the population of your town. You have to draw certain things like a nice sign for a restaurant and the town crop. Every time you complete a level you will have rescued 3 people, which will get added to your population. Overall this is one AWESOME game. I recommend it to anyone that likes mario and stuff like that.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mario w/ user-defined sprites October 5, 2007
Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
What you draw simply fills in templates already in the world. You don't draw enough to really set the flavor of the setting, and all the drawing is simply filling in blanks in the background.

It's fun to draw your hero, and the drawing app is great (I sometimes put in the game just to doodle), but the gameplay itself is a disappointingly linear jump and smash, and your works of art do nothing to affect the game world.

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
You play the game as "The Creator" and it is your job to save a small village of people/creatures/things by drawing the pizzazz back in to their little world which has become dark and gloomy and rescuing the townsfolk. Well this sounds kind of cool doesn't it? Too bad it's really not.

The game opens up with the pages of a book that apparently has been destroyed by one of the villagers who has gone evil. You are prompted to draw a few things, and I'm not sure what bearing they have on the gameplay yet, and then you are thrown in to a little Animal Crossing like world that is gloomy and fenced off with patches of dark fog. They talk about some nonsense for a while and eventually you get around to drawing a "hero" which you can pretty much do anything with. You're given a certain space built up of smaller regions that you can neither draw outside of or leave an individual region blank. This is to assure that your hero has 2 "legs", 2 "hands", a "head", and so forth. Naturally you can give them round stubs for hands and pineapples for legs if you wanted to but certain bits have to be there. There are also predrawn templates you can simply alter to your tastes or use them as they are. All in all I would say the drawing tools are simple but effective. You can zoom in/out, use a fill tool, there's a couple of different pencil widths, and there's a stamping tool. For the stamps and templates you only start with a given number and the rest must be unlocked. Once done, you may alter your hero whenever you see fit so don't worry about it too much.

So you've got your hero and you may now be saying to yourself, "Well he/she/it certainly is ugly" and you'd be right.

4.0 out of 5 stars This game is awesome! September 18, 2007
By Matthew
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great game! You can draw your own character and parts of the levels. The Drawing Tool is in depth, you can zoom in and edit each pixel, flood fill, lock colors and choose from a bunch of different stamps and patterns... I've been playing this game for awhile and still haven't unlocked everything!!! It has a cool story and interesting characters, and the music is amazing!

I'd recommend Drawn to Life for anyone who likes to doodle or draw, or anyone interested in a fun side scroller. It's not perfect (Sometimes the levels / village feel too long) but it has a ton of replayability due to all the stuff you can draw.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Awesome Platformer Where YOU Design the Platforms! January 30, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
"Drawn to Life" is really, in essence, three games seamlessly united into one: lightweight RPG, slick side-scrolling platformer, and art/drawing program. If you enjoy these elements, even to a slight extent, you will enjoy the experience of "Drawn to Life."

There is some sketchy theology involved. The game begins by asking you to draw a globe, some trees, and some creatures. It then brands you "the Creator". Turns out you created a whole world and then abandoned it. Then, one day, a funny little creature called a raposa (the main species of inhabitants of your world) prays to the Creator, and you answer.

The two most distinct types of game play are the RPG and the platforming elements. The RPG first has you design up to three "heroes" as the Creator. From then on, you play both the role of Creator and hero as you interact with the raposas in a small village and "create" elements of their life as needed.

The platforming element takes over when your hero travels through different doors to action areas such as a snowy mountain and a sandy beach. Here, your hero proceeds in classic side-scrolling style, defeating enemies with a non-lethal gun that fires projectiles like snow ball and acorns or simply by crushing them with his or her butt, leaping across platforms, and collecting coins and hidden items.

The most unique feature of the game, and the element that is incorporated into both of the distinct gaming experiences, is the drawing feature. If you can handle Microsoft Paint, you can handle this. The DS makes excellent use of the stylus to draw several of the game's interactive elements. This starts with the design of the various heroes, all painted over a manikin to provide the movement structure, and all treated as one by the raposas.
