This game had an interesting concept, and I believe it could have been really fun if it weren't for the controls. The controls were just confusing and hard to use. It was extremely hard to make accurate turns and jumps.

I had recently played this game and was very disappointed. The graphics were very lackluster not bad but not good either. The gameplay of painting buildings a different color in order to free other blob citizens gets boring really quickly. The gameplay controls work well but the camera sometimes gets stuck behind you which makes it difficult to see in certain situations. This game has a neat concept of having to go and repaint your city to protect for INK the evil black and white corporation. If you are looking for a good paint your world action adventure game give this one a pass and rent or buy epic mickey. If you are looking for a fun way to teach your kids colors and about mixing colors then rent this game. Otherwise give this game a pass.
When playing this game, I remembered one of the really old games that Nintendo unleashed that was similarly difficult the further along you got. Banjo-Kazooie. In terms of entertainment, this is no B-K but it takes with it the deceptive color and rapidly growing difficulty. I'm not joking when I say that this game is one of the reasons that gamers should be thankful for sites like Gamefly--without it, many people would be holding this piece of garbage with shame and defeat.
At the start of this game, you're greeted with the usual hook-animation of happy-go-lucky characters suddenly getting slammed by the enemy and their [side]heroes almost immediately being captured only to be saved by the titular hero.
Do not let this game fool you, it's not as fun as it looks.
From the start, you're given repetitive missions, troublesome controls, and a generic sub par interaction with your environment and characters. Don't get me wrong, the concept has potential and I had fun at the beginning but after a while it all winds down into a sloppy adventure that tries to keep things interesting by making the missions unnecessarily harder considering the type of control scheme that they give you [waggling the remote to jump, nunchuk to move, B-button to target].
Honestly, the only thing about this game that had any more to offer than it's tired storyline was the free coloring missions where it doesn't have a timer to put pressure on you. If you're looking to waste hours of your life on this, go ahead but if you're planning to buy it then I'd have to say you should respectively pass on it.
