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. 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. 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.

Gameplay

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. 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. The products support a wide range of printers for the time of its release, including dot matrix, colour and laser printers.

Promotion

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. After the release of the games, Capstone sent entry forms with the boxed products for a coloring contest. The prize for the best pictures were $100 each.
