this is the worst game ever, I rented this game for my 5 year old daughter since she likes crayloa and thought it would be a good coloring game. I got it home and it was so hard to play even on easy she nor i could play it and by time i figured out how to play it she had lost interest in it. I would not reccomend it to anyone

I originally got this one as something that my 3 yr old and 6 yr old could play together. Well, too tough for the 3 yr old, but the 6 yr old really took to it.
The gameplay takes a little getting used to - you really want to run through the tutorial. But it makes sense - you can not directly control the characters. But, instead, you have to figure out how to stop them, make them get to the top of the screen etc... only by drawing some basic shapes for them to climb on. It's sort of a puzzle.
I really enjoyed watching the kids figure out that they give themselves time by boxing in the character (drawing walls on both sides). And then they were easily able to create a series of ramps to get them up an over an obstacle.
I decided to get this game for my 3 year old, since we have been to the Crayola factory and he loves to color. I decided to try the game myself first to see if it would be good for him. Needless to say, I could not even figure it out, you can't control the characters on the screen, and when I clicked on the coloring book on the main screen to try that, the game would not take me there. Unfortunately, you can't rank a game zero, because this one deserves it.
