Initially, it sold rather poorly due to rather tepid reviews that weren't sure if the game was the smartest idea or was well implemented. The intended kid's market, with a periphery demographic that didn't find the creative elements to be sufficient, didn't get the game selling until THQ quickly slammed out a SpongeBob SquarePants Edition, which not only sold like hotcakes, but also kick-started sales of the original title. Now, THQ has gotten around to doing a proper sequel with Drawn To Life: The Next Chapter and a separate sequel on the Wii, under a different developer and with a different plot. All the strengths are here and tighter than before, but with the catch of making the game's largely unfixed weaknesses a little more visible."
