We're all used to managing bullets, grenades and knives in first person shooters. But what if paint was your main ammo?
This is precisely the idea behind Tag: The Power of Paint. This original game, developed by a group of students of the Digipen Institute of Technology, challenges you to find your way through several levels in a mixture between puzzles, platform games and shooters. The trick is using paint to obtain different powers: green makes you jump, red boosts your speed and blue allows you to stick to the surface.
All you have to do is grab your machine gun – which looks more like one of those guns used in paintball games - and start making your way through each level in the game, using each color as you need it.
Tag: The Power of Paint is generally easy to play. Some puzzles are quite challenging at first, but once you get the knack of it the whole adventure runs smoothly – in fact you'll have the impression that it's too short. Also, I missed having at least a few enemies to wipe out, which would definitely make the game more exciting.
Tag: The Power of Paint is an original blend of puzzles, platformers and first person shooters in which the main ammunition is paint.
