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!).
Our examiner, Andrea Walney, first checked Colour With Crayons (Dreams) 2 years ago. It was re-examined by Andy Robertson and updated 15 months ago.
6+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. The game may be too hard for younger children to play on their own, but could be an ideal joint game with the child finding the boxes while directing someone else to jump on them.
