The Computerized Coloring Books is a collection of three games developed by Capstone Software and published by its parent company IntraCorp for both the DOS and Amiga systems. A port for the Windows 3.1 operating system was planned but never took place.[2] The games are based on Bill Kroyer's film FernGully: The Last Rainforest, Don Bluth's film Rock-a-Doodle and John Hughes's film Home Alone.[3] The Rock-a-Doodle game was as released with Trolls and An American Tail: The Computer Adventures of Fievel and His Friends on the Capstone CD Game Kids Collection.[4]

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The games work as basic computerized coloring books, which require the player to fill in a lineart picture. There are 16 colors available, although they can be mixed to get up to 256 colors.[5] The player can choose from a selection of backgrounds and add any characters to the picture, both of which are based on scenes and characters of the respective films.[6] The products support a wide range of printers for the time of its release, including dot matrix, colour and laser printers.[2]

Promotion[edit | edit source]

"In the spirit of FernGully -- color on your computer and save a tree."

— Angie Niehoff

The FernGully product was designed to follow an environmental-friendly policy, including the use of recycled paper.[7] After the release of the games, Capstone sent entry forms with the boxed products for a colouring contest.[2] The prize for the best pictures were $100 each.[8]
