Drawn to Life review

  • The most customizable heroes ever
  • Hidden items used towards art
  • A DS that's happy to see you
  • Letting the Raposa down
  • Small templates can be restrictive
  • Gameplay won't set the world on fire

Sept 17, 2007

Sure, other games may have an unlockable mode, others may imply it, but Drawn to Life gives it to you straight: You are God. The cat-like inhabitants of Raposa may refer to you as "The Creator" but you are very much the the omniscient deity they ask for help, pray to and depend on. So, after years of being lax in your otherwordly duties -  you lazy God, you - it's time to pull their town out of years of ice and anguish. And you'll sew back the book of life to its former glory by finding pages and people scattered throughout nearly 20 levels.

Above Left: Behold! Our own creation: Captain Anis

In addition to drawing your own heroes, which you'll play through the game with, you're charged with revitalizing the town by drawing everything from signs to plants. You name things, you draw them, you usher them into existence. Our awkward speedo-clad hero might have looked unlikely, but he proved just as mighty as any protagonist. And we got to make just about everything he uses to complete any given level. Seriously, cool stuff.
