I played it twice at E3 without understanding what I was doing, no one was around to help me out. I basically created a three-legged character and let it roam around eating fruit. Apparently I could have started missions with NPCs.
You could "slingshot" him by touching him, dragging, then releasing. Or you could touch the screen somewhere to make him walk.
I just watched the trailer on the eShop for Freakyforms... what did I just watch? That look like a whole bunch of weird It's cool that there's StreetPass features and that you can exchange your creations via QR codes though but unless I see positive reviews, I think I'll pass on this.
I can't believe that you guys aren't as fascinated by Freakyforms as I am! I picked it up. It... is freaky. But I like freaky. Can't comment on the game proper yet, since the introductory stuff is pretty long (so long that the game itself told me to stop playing after my second beast), but it's charming, and the music is charming, and the 3D seems unnecessary, but who cares?
It looks like Freakyforms will scratch that create-your-own-world Drawn to Life itch. And the StreetPass features will be great for this kind of title (but does it really not have online??). Excited to play more and let my warped world come to life.
Drawn to Life has funnier results, though, since it actually makes you draw stuff.
