  • Excerpt: THQ released a platformer two years ago by the name of Drawn to Life. While it didn't gather a lot of attention, it was an innovative attempt at using the Nintendo DS touch screen in ways that had not been tried before in a platformer. Aside from drawing the protagonist, players had to solve problems in their world by using their artistic skills. It guaranteed a unique experience that one could call their own.

  • Excerpt: Fresh off its recent success with Scribblenauts, developer 5th Cell returns to the Drawn to Life series with The Next Chapter. The direct sequel to the 2007 Nintendo DS game, it offers the same mix of stylus drawing and platforming that made the original stand out. Has the charm has worn off, or is there a good platformer beneath the fading ink? The Next Chapter's story hits the ground running immediately after the finale of the original title.

Drawn To Life: The Next Chapter for Nintendo DS

  • Conclusion: Those who liked the first game will love this sequel. Such focus on user-created content is a freedom incredibly unique in this game – and therefore, incredibly enjoyable. Outside of that creative freedom, the game is easy, can be trite and frequently moves at an unbearable pace. The user-created content is enough to rescue Drawn To Life: TNC and make it an innovative title for children. That said, the target market isn’t just kids, but kids with some patience.
  • Pros: Hugely original, Fun to create your own hero/world elements, Brilliant sound/visual design, Responsive input with DS stylus, good control structure
  • Cons: Terribly slow pacing, No appeal to older crowd, Not a lot of replay value

  • Conclusion: Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter is a successful sequel to the original game. It does improve upon small things and adds some gameplay variation through different forms. However, the gameplay still feels stagnant and the story is way too drawn out for my tastes. If you enjoyed the first game, this one is more of the same but if you're looking for groundbreaking differences between games, you won't find them here.

Review: Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter (Nintendo DS)

Diehard GameFAN
9 November 2009
  • Summary: When I got Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter in the mail, I was certain I was in for a pretty bumpy ride. Instead I was pleasantly surprised by the overall experience. On the whole, this is a better game than its predecessor in nearly every facet of its design. There are still some problems. The game is short, the ending is extremely unsatisfying, and it’s a bit too easy. Even still, if you liked the first game, you won’t be done wrong by this one.

  • Summary: A cool game that’s light on features and challenge but heavy on other things. Could have been better but not so bad for younger gamers.

  • Excerpt: A recipient of critical acclaim at this year’s E3, Drawn To Life: The Next Chapter has hit stores in time for the holiday season. The main draw of the game is the ability to create your own character using the DS stylus. Get it? Get it? The main draw? Boy am I funny. Ahem, Let’s continue on where I’ll “outline” how this game plays.
