Author: Andrea Walney and @GeekDadGamer.


Colour with Crayons is a running and jumping game. You are a crayon in a world made from art supplies. Find the required number of transparent boxes and colour them in to progress. It's an unusual premise extended by the optional hunt for cones to create an experience made with the developer's children who provide the voices.

There are two main levels to complete, purple and red. The purple level is the easiest and requires you to find 20 boxes and 3 cones. The red level has 25 boxes and 5 cones. You jump around the boxes to colour them in. Some are hidden away, and some are in plain sight. You can also use the Imp cursor to move objects out of the way.

There is no timer or countdown so you can play at your own speed. This non-violent game is clearly intended for younger children, however the jumping requires a certain level of skill and is a challenge for all ages. Very young children may need help with the more difficult platforms.

A short but sweet game which will have you hunting around for those last few boxes and cones. As a bonus there is a Christmas themed level (slightly hidden in the opening hub - look behind you!).
