Grinnypcolour my fate screenshotYes, Christmas has come and gone, and yet we are gifted with a little reminder of what the season was all about, courtesy of a poignant point-and-click adventure. Colour My Fate is the sequel to a charming series of adventures, Colour My Heart, Colour My World, and Colour My Dreams. Created by Silver Stitch, with haunting music by Coin, we dive once again into a world without color (or colour, as the title indicates).

The world of the Colour My series is a cold, bleak place; monotone, full of sharp edges and no human contact. Our nameless hero is once again on a quest to bring color to the world as he travels to complete his mission. And yes, surprisingly, there is an actual mission this time, rather than the ambiguous explorations of the first three games.

Navigation through the world is accomplished either by the [WASD] or [arrow] keys, depending on your preference, and things are again manipulated by the mouse. Sparkles indicate areas of interest, but this time around there are different colored sparkles, and you cannot use them until you have found or embraced that particular color in your heart. Black sparkles can still be manipulated whenever you find them. Some sparkles merely add color to the monochromatic landscape, others manipulate pieces of scenery allowing you to explore further.

colourmyfate_screenshot2.jpgAnalysis: Considering its predecessors, there is a surprising lack of schadenfreude in Colour My Fate. Whereas the first three games were more of an experience, here we're looking at a surprising amount of pure gameplay, with very little analysis or angst. There's still a little frisson of delight when you pull a switch and add color to the world, but as the color this time around is mostly composed of Christmas decorations, it can begin to feel a little...well, cheesy.

Purely from the gameplay aspect, this is the smoothest of the Colour titles. The choice of either the [WASD] or [arrow] keys makes the game more accessible to both right and left handed players. And for a series that usually eschewed gameplay for profundity, there's a surprising amount of gameplay to be had. In fact, with less puzzles and more pure exploration, Colour My Fate has wandered into almost pure platformer territory.

Those who play these games for the profound message may be a little disappointed with this fourth installment of the Colour series. Colour My Fate does indeed have a message, but a rather lighthearted one (at least, in comparison to the other three). The world is still bleak, but perhaps love has mellowed our little hero a bit. There is still fun to be had in this strange little world, and the visuals and music will still haunt the player long after the game is done. And, perhaps, you might find the true meaning of Christmas within.

Walkthrough Guide


(Please allow page to fully load for spoiler tags to be functional.)

If you wish to know where all the colors are... (Semi-Walkthrough?)

Yellow

Where the signs say platforms are good for climbing, go up and left

Blue

Where the signs point to security, sky train, and underground, Go right past the elevated platform and past the green sparkles in the next screen

Green

Where you initially dropped down, use the blue sparkles on the lever in the top right and go into the pipe on the right

Red

From the security sign, go up twice, then left and use green to get onto the sky ship

Pink/Purple

Go back to where you initially dropped down and past the gate on the left. There is a tunnel you can open and enter on the left. Don't forget to duck at the live beam!

Gold Star

Use purple to get to the security controls, then you can use purple again to undo the "lock down." Now get on the sky train (keep going left past the sign)

I like it, the other games left me really confused and I felt a bit disatisfied when it ended, because they were so short. ._.'

But this one I can't manage to find. I can't find the purple thingy... D:

Argh. 98 percent done, I guess, but I can't finish.

I found all the colors and the star, and have added color to just about every panel, but I can't get the star on the top of the tree. I don't have the green ball on the branch you've used in your illustration, so I must have missed a sparkly place somewhere, but I've been through the whole game three times and can't find it. I assume I can't put the star on top till I've found everything.

Grant -- keep looking. Certain areas that were blocked off before should open up the more you click and explore, so retrace your steps from time to time.

I really love this series, but for some reason it's being rendered unplayable for me; after I hold a directional key down for too long, the character won't stop moving in that direction. Sometimes holding down a different key works, but not always.

OK, played the game on a different monitor and found two sparkly spots I couldn't see before...

including one on the tree. Makes sense you should have to use all the colors on the tree before putting the star on.

Anyway, sappy but fun!

Folks, is there any way to return back to the top once you find all the colored objects? before i knew what was going on, i found a fireplace all the way up top that needed all of the colors to activate, but i couldn't return there once i had fallen down.

@JohnnyCaps - To get back to the fireplace:

go down to the bottom and all the way to the right. It's the same place pictured in the second image in grinnyp's review. You can climb back up from there.

There was a place on the ship that wasn't sparkling that I clicked on and it changed. Anyone that isn't finished should look in every nook and cranney, even if it isn't sparkling.

The two 'invisible' sparkles for me were...

On the first zone of the flying ship, I click the round window in the hull.

The second was on the bottom story of the large christmas tree in the nook between boughs on the left side. As Carny said, it didn't make sense to have every color on the tree but purple.

Now that I've gotten my stupid questions out of the way:

I have everything there is to collect. I've been everywhere. Where the heck is this tree I'm supposed to decorate?

I tried that tree-like platform you activate with green to get the red ornament, but nothing happened.

I can't even click the ornaments in my inventory. Can someone lend me a pointy finger?

I finished the game. Interesting idea with everthing being black and white. The name of the game fit with the game really well. I love the colorful sparkle and when you got to color the chimeny with decor.

You need to decorate the chimney to unlock the elavator thingy/Sliding carrage thing.

It took me forever to find the "purple sparkly" spot on the tree (it wasn't sparkling for me). I felt like the "green sparkly" part of the sky ship hull did the whole sparkling thing just the second time I walked through (that, or my mouse happened to hover over it).

That was a blast! I had to retrace my steps a lot, because there are some doorways that aren't very obvious. Now I am eager to play the other Color My World titles. (The message is corny but the game was still a lot of fun, and I loved the little character and the way it is always in motion.)

to find the top of the tree.

go to the very top of the sky ship where you are outside, then go down and then right. the opening is right there. of course, you would've had to go to the fireplace first.

I found nothing remotely "cheesy" about it. Gosh Grinny, you almost seem to be apologizing for it not being morose. It's a wonderfully charming game. A good platformer that is fun and entertaining to play. I THOROUGHLY enjoyed it! Cheers and THANK YOU to the creators!

Hardest ornament to get was purple. Not much to really say, such a perfect game that I can't even make up the right words. Much lighter than the others, though I would heartily recommend Colour My Dreams (before 7:00 if you spook easily). Fairly simple. 8.5 out of 10. Nice job Silver Stitch!

Ohhhh.

For everybody looking for the purple sparkly

There's a screen near the bottom where, if you've activated the other sparklies, there will be presents on the floor on the right, a platform and hanging rope lights.

The thing with a grey window that you assume is some kind of house that needs to be lifted a little so you can crawl under it? It's the start of a tunnel.

It's a pretty and simple game apart from that :)
