Let there be color!

–The Creator

Color is a currency collected and obtained in Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter. It plays an instrumental part in progressing through the game.

Color Drops are earned from getting combos, from certain villagers, and are found throughout the levels. They appear in either drop form or in a colorful bottle.

Book Icon.png Story[edit]

In the beginning of Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter, Heather has a vision of Wilfre stealing color. Upon waking up from her nightmare, Heather rushes over to the Hidden Beach where she finds Wilfre's Scepter and she is used as Wilfre's puppet as he uses her form. Wilfre uses this scepter to steal color from the Raposa world.

Many Raposa are kidnapped via portals as Wilfre drains the color from the Village. A few of the Raposa narrowly escape losing color and get away on Turtle Rock. They sail away looking for the missing Raposa and color to restore the world. Color is gathered in the form of droplets that The Hero has to collect throughout the game.

They are used to restore parts of villages whose color has been drained by Wilfre. At the end of each level, The Hero receives 100 to 200 Color Drops depending on how well they have done in a level. They are all shown in as liquid in a large, full bottle.

In the final battle with Wilfre, he steals all the color from The Hero. The Raposa have to pray to get The Creator to restore The Hero, and then the real battle begins.

Upon defeating Wilfre, all color is restored.

Restoring Areas[edit]

The player can restore color to certain areas for varying amounts of color between 25 and 100, larger areas are usually more expensive. Some areas have to be recolored in order for the story-line to progress (eg. Rose's Mansion), less prominent areas can be chosen to be restored at any point.

When you go to restore an area, a system message will appear that reads "Would you like to restore color to this area for (eg.25) drops?". Once you agree to, you will have to use the stylus to recolor the most prominent element of the area. After you have colored it, the surrounding areas will fill in automatically.

Large areas are restored by simply tapping on the ground.
