    Drawn To Life: Two Realms marks the return of the franchise after more than a decade, with slightly different gameplay and a story that follows the events of the previous games. It is not a perfect game, but it is a small experience that knows how to mix puzzles, platforms and creativity.

    It’s great to see this series back, but unfortunately it feels repetitive and uninspired after a while.

    With its vibrant art style, playful atmosphere, plenty of cleverly-designed levels to solve, and some interesting, if uneven, new ideas at play, Drawn to Life: Two Realms is an enjoyable game, but it never quite manages to capture the magic of its predecessors.

    I am happy to see that Drawn To Life is still mulling around in the minds of the creators. I'm not the world's biggest fan of platformers, but I greatly enjoyed the playful creativity and customisation that the original games offered. That Two Realms has somehow pulled back on a concept that even primitive DS and Wii titles managed perfectly well is very disappointing, but I hope that the low price point means that this was just a token first effort that will lead into a more substantial, and conceptually true, re-boot down the track.

    Though the game has nice visuals and is the continuation of a creative series, Two Realms failed to maintain the magic Drawn to Life had on DS. Unfortunately, my disinterest in the story kept me unmotivated to wait through cut scenes to get to the next levels. Levels could be fun, but they could also be terribly too easy or frustratingly hard. The best moments in the game are dispersed too far apart and they don’t feel worth the hassle to get to.

    Drawn To Life: Two Realms is likely to serve a niche, but unless you’re hankerin’ for more as a long time fan - or are really starved for some puzzle platforming - beautiful artwork and some occasional brilliance can only get you so far.

    Drawn To Life: Two Realms appears familiar, but when you start to play it, it just falls apart at the seams. Everything that made the originals fun, particularly the touchscreen controls, has been disregarded, leaving a huge disappointment behind.

    Drawn to life two realms isn't a perfect game to say the least but, its amazing to see one of the most interesting yet odd titles on the dsDrawn to life two realms isn't a perfect game to say the least but, its amazing to see one of the most interesting yet odd titles on the ds get a new addition in over a decade. It genuinely starts off after the events of next chapter, the gameplay is a little different instead of worlds and platform levels to explore your bouncing back and forth from one Realm to another doing platform puzzles solving issues through those platform puzzles. I hope to see more of this series and see more of these characters. Expand

    While the puzzle genre replacing the action adventure platformer style may be a letdown for some, the charm and interesting narrative of drawnWhile the puzzle genre replacing the action adventure platformer style may be a letdown for some, the charm and interesting narrative of drawn to life is here and the gameplay is usually serviceable. I consider the overall experience pretty decent especially if you take the low price into consideration. Just be aware that the switch version has a couple performance hiccups. Expand

    I feel disappointed that even Drawn of Life is still a good series, Two Realms is not good. Fun at first but it gets boring later on.

    This game is a complete departure from the action-platforming of the DS originals, and not for the better.
    Combine all the minor glitches
    This game is a complete departure from the action-platforming of the DS originals, and not for the better.
    Combine all the minor glitches together with the half-assed story (aggregious offense for a DtL game) with the fact that this is just a glorified mobile game, and you have the worst followup possible to what was, frankly, one of the most unique video game series out there. This is an extremely disappointing revival attempt, especially after having had to wait for it for so long.
