  • Summary: (Also known as "Magic Pengel 2") Players take on the role of Prince Pixel, who is on a quest to save his parents and restore Canvas Kingdom back to its normal form after an ancient evil transformed it into a labyrinth full of danger. On his quest, the heroic young Prince finds a companion, 'Box Dog', who aids and accompanies him in his many quests. At the start of his adventure, Prince Pixel finds a magic wand that allows him to bring anything he draws to life. The wand also enables him to temporarily take the shape of any enemy encountered and learn their powers. Prince Pixel can become anything the player draws and transform between three additional different creatures at any given time. As Prince Pixel advances through the game, he gets stronger, tougher, and more skilled. Players also benefit from experience by acquiring more drawing tools and abilities. By the end of the game, players can literally re-create any creature that they've seen in the game with an incredibly easy-to-use drawing program. The game allows the user to draw straight lines as well, so even someone with no drawing skills whatsoever can create just about anything. Players use their imagination to battle their way through levels or creatively solve puzzles. [HOT-B] Expand

  1. If you leave your pre-conceived notions at the door, Graffiti Kingdom will most definitely entertain you.
  2. For me, the simple combat takes a backseat to turning everything I love into a videogame character. [June 2005, p.95]

    It's a highly specialized title, with a unique feature that will either delight you or drive you crazy. But those who get into the nitty-gritty of designing custom monsters to play will find in this game rare pleasures and rewards.
  4. The action in Graffiti Kingdom is brief and shallow, but creating and animating your own crazy creatures is easy and rewarding enough to make up for it.
  5. Graffiti Kingdom is definitely worth buying if you love art or just building things, but if you're just looking for a solid action adventure title you should spend your money elsewhere.
  6. An innovative concept wedged into a mediocre game.
  7. We’d like to give credit to Graffiti Kingdom’s designers for sticking with a daring concept, but then they went and surrounded it with a mindless action shell. Overly repetitive, simplistic gameplay dominates the landscape, and only the monster creator saves this game from running out of ink completely.

    the caracter creation is surprizingly easy, also the attacks learned can work well with almost any design. you may have to beat the game for all options, but it does have replay value (if only to see what else you can do.) if you need idea's go here http://garakudou.s43.xrea.com/ Expand

    Omigod! I cannot wait I have it on reserve and keep obsessing over it I'm a total game game freak and I know a good game when I see one, what with it's crisp graphics, innovativeness, and overall imagination/creativity this game (besides Animal Crossing DS) can't be beat! That's a fact! Expand

    This game is one of the best creative game there can be in those days. The custom creation of your doodle monster is great! A better improvement since "Magic Pengel" release. I've played this years before, yet it's still quite great!

    Through longer the progress of your game, more and more actions for your "doodle" can be made. With also different parts is allowed. From charge attacks and tackles, to punches and kicking, etc.. Robotic like or humanoid doodles also can be made. Depending on the painter (player's) like, giving a more free will to these certain kind of games. It can be quite a blast playing this!

    Seeing through how the game actually is.. I tell you.. The story isn't that totally great. It's quite alright a bit. They concentrated a bit too much on the game play, and leveling though. The enjoyment mostly can be seen through the progress of your doodle.. Seeing how much it can be stronger than ever.

    Despite it's "cartoony" art made. It quite actually fits the game. Well for a 2005 ps2 game that is.. Still there are no problems with that.

    On top of all that.. I give it a 9/10 due to it's creative game play, and can be one of the most memorable games I've played so far since Atari. I suggest playing this, this is definitely worth it.

    I bought this game hoping for fun, but all I got was a poorly-responsive drawing tool (using the PS2 controller) and a less-than-mediocre adventure. No thanks, I'll stick to RPG Maker 3. Expand
