You may be wondering how this manages to be a game, or an abandonware game. Well, it is! And it’s actually fun. I have been playing it while watching a movie on television. Finding different colours to fill in the pictures the best way.
The plot, well, there is no plot. But the idea is very simple. Scenes and characters are taken from the FernGully: The Last Rainforest movie. If you haven’t seen that movie then you should.
I love that movie, and it’s what attracted me to this “game” in the first place.
You are given a palette of colours, and if you press on the key icon in the bottom right when you’re on a colour you get a new palette which is based upon your selected colour. It took me a while to figure that out, and once I did my colouring-in got so much better. The game has a free-for-all mode, where you can just draw things.
There is an undo button for when you do an oopsie. Unfortunately you can only undo once. But you can also colour overtop of previous colours, so it’s basically impossible to stuff it up 😉
If you have young kids, they’ll also love this game. I tried to give Charlotte a turn, but she didn’t quite understand what to do.
You can even print out your masterpieces and hang them on the fridge.
P.S. Send me your artwork and I’ll put it up here for the world to see. 😉
