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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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.Read more ›
