I've often wondered what would happen if my drawings came to life and I could doodle items that they could use in their everyday goings on, or in ridiculous fantasy situations, so it's a good thing that the latest instalment of the Drawn to Life series has just dropped in price.
If you mosey on down to Play or Amazon then you can pick up a copy of the game on the Wii for £7.99, which'll make you a saving of exactly £1 on the next best price of £8.99 from HMV.

The story carries on directly from the events of the first game, this time around things are being stolen from the Raposa's village, whilst other key structures essential for everyday life are vanishing into thin air, and it's up to you to find out what's going on in order to put things right.
The gameplay follows a basic platform format, so you'll be moving from the left hand side of the screen to the right hand side of the screen, until you reach the gateway to the next level. Unlike most platform games however, you'll be able to create useful items by drawing them on-screen, which is really the only feature that you should consider buying the game for. At the start of the game you can draw some of your character's features using the guide boxes, and during the game you can draw items that allow you to get to otherwise inaccessible areas whenever a blue box appears, or construct moveable items in red boxes. Unfortunately, the Wii-mote is your drawing tool, which means that you'll probably never be able to construct something that's got a straight line.
You can take part in mini-games with a few friends in the multiplayer, but they feel so out of place that you'll wonder why they were included.
There are quite a few flaws in the game which can be hard to overlook at times, but now that it's just under the £10 mark you might want to give it a go.
