Create beautiful pixel drawings with this hybrid coloring book / pixel graphic designer game
It is often that the simplest activities bring us the most joy, and the same may go for games as well since sometimes AAA graphics cannot compensate boring or frustrating gameplay, which can easily be achieved just as well with 8bit graphics.
That is precisely the principle that Coloring Pixels follows, being a successful blend of a coloring book and a pixel graphic designer, all wrapped up in a casual game that will keep you occupied for hours.
A game that could be summed up as “cute”
The graphics are as you may expect from a game that has the word “Pixels” in the title since everything from the game load screen to the menu and everything during a game session is animated in a vibrant 8bit graphics style.
The colors chosen for the pictures further enhance the overall childish and cutesy feel of the game, which can prove itself especially appealing to younger audiences.
Choose from booklets of various themes and difficulty levels
The objective is a simple one, as each level contains numerous uncolored pixels and it is your job to color them in. Each pixel is numbered, with each number corresponding with a color in your palette.
You must select a color from the palette and paint each of its corresponding pixels, and correctly coloring all pixels in a level will finish it.
These levels are separated into booklets, each containing levels of various themes, sizes, and difficulty levels ranging from drawing a simple 13 x 13-pixel smiley that uses three colors to the game’s logo itself that is 162 x 80 pixel big and uses 50 colors.
Create cute art in pixel form
While on paper the game’s principle may seem unappealing, once you download it you realize that you are sorry you finished the first ten levels in the first half an hour.
More so, the simple gameplay means the system requirements are next to inexistent, making this game accessible to pretty much anyone.
