tag: the power of paint

hmmm. paint. . .  Sounds very exciting doesn’t it? Paint sounds sooooooo cool. I love watching paint dry. Now a video game about paint, a indie one nonetheless. Sounds cool right? My first reaction was of disgust. How could a video game about “the Power Of Paint”, be awesome?  Paint doesn’t have any powers. Also, it’s by the students from the highly prestigious DigiPen academy. How could those be ingredients for an awesome video game? It can’t That’s what you thought before. . . you played TAG: THE POWER OF PAINT!

Tag: The Power Of Paint

That’s a pretty wicked titlescreen. Tag is in an FPS view like halo, but its a platformer. You get unlimited paint, and you spray it everywhere. Each color of paint has a unique power when you touch it. If you go on green paint you jump, blue you stick to it and red you run super fast.

Pretty cool. The graphics are highly stylized, and it has kind of a unique look. Bring colour to a colourless world.

Ah, if you’re immature enough, you could write penis on walls.

The actual game is short, if you have skills you can complete it short of 20 minutes or so, because there are only 5 levels.However there isn’t a level select screen so if you want to show of the game, you have to go to the tutorials.

This kind of gameplay is extremely fun, and has high replayablity. What this game needs multiplayer maybe like capture the flag mode, and a level editor.

This game is good for killing a hour.

Gameplay: 10/10 Perfect, maybe fix some stuff up.

Content: 6/10 Needs more levels, and multiplayer

Graphics: 8/10 Good I guess, fits with the feel

Total Score= 80% B-

Did I mention this is FREE? http://www.thepowerofpaint.com/ GO INDIE REVOLUTION!
