Developer Legacy Games is re-launching Crayola Color Blaster, it’s augmented reality (AR) mobile game. The re-launch will contain a new content pack and a special ‘arcade mode’.
Crayola Color Blaster was originally launched on November 1st 2016 and was created as part of the Google App Incubator Project. It is specifically designed for Tango-enabled Android smartphones. Tango is an AR platform for Android phones and tablets to support AR applications and games.
The game is essentially a virtual colouring book that uses AR to map characters onto the real world for children to colour in to progress through levels. The new storyline content that will be introduced alongside the re-launch is called Paint My Dragon, which includes fairies, tree monsters, ogres and, as you would expect, dragons.
The arcade mode is also a new addition, a faster-paced game mode featuring zombies, which can be enjoyed for free. The Paint My Dragon story pack is available as an in-app purchase.
“We are thrilled to have worked with Crayola and Google in the creation of this innovative children’s app,” says Ariella Lehrer, CEO of Legacy Games. “Crayola Color Blaster is one of the first kid’s titles to demonstrate how Tango’s technology enables new and exciting play patterns. Our game is a mixture of coloring and tag…only possible when your mobile device understands its position relative to the world around it.”
“At Crayola, we’re all about inspiring creativity through color and innovative play patterns, and we are delighted to partner with Legacy on the new and exciting Tango platform,” added Warren Shorr, Vice President of Business Development & Licensing. “This new app is a fun, relevant and highly engaging activity for kids of all ages.”
