Box Art of "The FernGully Computerized Coloring Book"
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.
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.
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.
