Drawn to Life: Spongebob Squarepants Edition
13 July 2009
Excerpt: Drawn to Life: Spongebob Squarepants Edition is built on the same premise as the original 2007 Drawn to Life, where gameplayers had the chance to draw the characters and surroundings, only this time the story centres round Spongebob, Patrick and the Bikini Bottom crew. Down in Bikini Bottom Patrick, having got hold of one of two magic pencils, has inadvertently brought a drawing of the evil Doodlebob to life.
Excerpt: The much loved Nickelodeon show SpongeBob SquarePants is one of the few cartoons that appeals to both children and adults alike. Its random yet at times immensely clever humour makes it stand out from the rest, and its popularity is unparalleled. Acting as a themed spin-off to the original Drawn to Life title, Drawn to Life: SpongeBob SquarePants Edition is a mostly pleasant cartoon cash-in.
Summary: For a licensed video game, this title takes the technology of
Drawn to Life
and runs with it. However, without the aid of the fancy character and item editing, this wouldn't be such a great game. I personally enjoyed the fact that my own hero was doing all the platforming instead of the actual act of platforming. It delighted me to no end that my own character was starring in a game, which I surmise will be the biggest pull for anyone who decides to purchase this game.
Pros: It's fun to be able to draw your own characters, items, and even save points., Entertaining for kids or adults., Innovative concept that could be implemented into more games., Surprisingly solid cartoon tie-in game.
Cons: Very short., Graphics can be very subpar at times., There are no voiceovers, and the short voice clips are very haphazard., Saving takes so long you may be fooled into thinking your DS has frozen., A very, very simple game.
