Hearts are the healing items in Drawn to Life.
In most cases, The Hero can take damage up to five times before dying. When damage is received, colored portions of The Hero's body are removed, exposing the mannequin. The order of exposure starts with the arms; then legs; torso; and finally the head, exposing the entire mannequin. If they are hit after that, The Hero loses a life and has to restart that section of the level. If The Hero has 0 lives left at the time of death, then a game over message will appear on the screen and the game will continue from the last save point.
There are two types of hearts in the first game: Small and Large. Small hearts restore damage from up to two hits, whilst large hearts will fully restore The Hero's health.
After collection, hearts will reappear a little after a minute.
