Draw Play is a unique new drawing game by "Eggy" and hosted on Gamegecko. It plays like a standard platformer, but the catch is that there are no platforms; you use the mouse to draw in the platforms for the character to walk on, and then use the arrow keys to move the player over the drawn platforms to the flag for each level.
The mechanic is innovative, but the game has a few minor flaws:
- Collision with the spikes is based on the spikes' bounding box and the character's bounding box, rather than the spike itself. Since the spike is triangular, and the bounding box is square, this means that you'll die fairly often from touching a spike's bounding box even when you're well clear of the spike. It's also not clear in the beginning that anything that's not a spike is OK to walk through.
- Most of the levels can be circumvented by jumping, drawing a line under the character, and repeating until you reach the top, then drawing a line over to the flag.
- There's only so many times I can hear Pee Wee Herman's scream (the sound effect when you fall) before I have to kill.
Despite those flaws the game is otherwise top-notch and mercifully short.
