Pretty bare bones coloring may be fun for kids but the interface is, unfortunately, a major obstacle
When it comes to smaller and simpler games like this that are mostly intended for the younger set it makes them tough to review since they already have extremely niche appeal. That’s certainly the case for this game that’s essentially a digital coloring book of sorts, including bare line art in a variety of themes for you to color in how you like, using a variety of tools that will make that harder or easier depending on what you choose. The stumbling block here, and unfortunately I’d consider it a pretty major one, is that regardless of whether you’re using a controller or even the touchscreen to directly channel your inner Picasso, the controls and interface are wonky, at best. I actually went back to play with the touchscreen in the hopes that it would clearly work more effectively and make the game worth a recommendation, but sadly no, though the act of coloring may be simpler that way, pulling up your options of tools, colors, and brush sizes requires a button press and that even seems incredibly unreliable. In order to be kid-friendly everything should be easily available on-screen, letting them quickly make whatever changes and keep going, with this implementation I can’t see how a parent would need to almost constantly help out, making it a bust overall.
