    Here's what it ultimately comes down to, I guess: Draw Slasher is a fun game, and I'd encourage you to play it, but only if you're paying the lowest price possible. If you do literally all your mobile gaming on your Vita, then by all means, buy it and enjoy. If you have an iDevice, though…you might want to think about just how much Trophies mean to you, and make your decision from there.

    A fun game which makes great use of the PlayStation Vita's touch screen to slice zombies in half. Logical, since the game made its debut on mobile devices. Less logical is the price of the game. Which is three times of what you would pay for the mobile version. [June 2013, p.90]

    Draw Slasher isn’t a system seller, but it doesn’t claim to be. What it is though is the sort of game that the system needs, quick pick up games that made iOS as successful as it is today. At £3.99 it does seem expensive when compared to the 69p types on iOS, but you will easily get more than your money’s worth.

    This can't help but feel like an over-expensive mobile game. [Aug 2013, p.69]

    Provided you haven’t driven yourself mad with the many touch slashing games already available on a multitude of touchscreen devices, Draw Slasher is a serviceable game to help you spend a few hours killing enemies with your fingers. Like I said though, you should wait for a sale because it isn’t anything you have to play right away.

    Draw Slasher is a great idea, largely ruined by a design problems.

It's perfect for the touch controls of the Vita, allowing for fairly precise and satisfying movement and fighting all with one finger. The enemies present a variety of fighting challenges because for many of them you can't just slash at from the front. RPG elements allow for leveling up and some rudimentary skill trees with powers that must be used tactically. Overall, a tight little game. Expand

    When Draw Slasher hit the store last month, Vita had been pretty light on fresh digital content in the preceding weeks (save for the wonderfulWhen Draw Slasher hit the store last month, Vita had been pretty light on fresh digital content in the preceding weeks (save for the wonderful Guacamelee!), so I somewhat reluctantly decided to take a stab on Draw Slasher. And while it isn't perfect, I'm delighted to say that I'm super glad that I did.

    I was initially, ahem drawn (I know, shoot me! No more puns, promise!) by the gorgeous backdrops, fluid animation and variety of enemies, but all the same, I must admit to harbouring reservations over the smartphone-centric swiping mechanic that lies at the heart (and title) of this terrific little hack'n slasher.

    As with any gamer worth his salt, I'd (almost) always take a conventional analogue stick and buttons over the Fruit Ninja-esque swipes and flicks favoured by the casual crowd, but thankfully however, that isn't necessarily the case here as the touch controls feel entirely natural and perfectly usable.

    Considering the pinpoint deftness that a true ninja must have in his locker, developer, Mass Creation must be congratulated for ensuring their slashing protagonist is most assuredly neat, discreet and oh so light on his feet.

I personally don't waste my time on horrible phone gaming so i have not become jaded from the touch only controls because my mobile gaming involves Two analog sticks (Vita). Response for the slashing is good but not perfect and some of the jumping sequences can become tiresome. Overall it can be a very fun little game which is paced well, has satisfying blood effects, and decent boss battles. It does include a simplistic leveling system and a variety of special abilities which add to the enjoyment and addictiveness. As well it boasts a story mode, arcade mode, and a challenge mode which can be just that challenging all for a reasonable 3.99 price tag though i got it for 3.19 on sale on PSN. It has a nice 13 trophies including gold and silver and is surely worth the price tag. Good luck hunting ninja zombie monkeys. Expand

You have probably encountered a very similar game if you play phone games. It will be fun for about an hour and then you will be bored by it. It works surprising well but after a while it was just tedious and I could no longer play it. Expand
