Developer: ImagiSoft, Inc.

The Color Wizard is a coloring game for kids. It is quite powerful, as you can generate horizontal and vertical dithered gradients by dragging'n'dropping over the palette, freely draw single colors, and lighten and darken spots; in fact, every single picture comes with a tutorial which shows how to use these features to create atmosphere and perspective, and, as a bonus, with a text about/of the depicted animal/story.

The program features 2 company jingles and 3 different playful themes. Nothing loops; after a theme ends, another is played at random.

Every button clicked is read by a female voice, producing a rather annoying delay. Version 1.2 has an option to turn the sound off, read by another woman. The German release of Version 1.0 uses no voices.

The Windows 16 version has completely different MIDI music by Karsten Koch.


All songs were recorded from a Pentium 60 MHz with a Sound Blaster 16 CT1740. The titles are based on their filenames.
