Use Your iPhone’s Camera to Paint a Picture
Renniksoft today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Spectra – Camera Painting 1.1, an important update to their innovative app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices that uses the device’s camera to help paint a picture. Users fill in the colors of a selected painting, drawing, cartoon, or other image by aiming their iPhone’s camera lens at the real-life objects found all around them. Once they find a color that matches the selected hue, that color fills in, and then it’s on to finding the next color.
Spectra offers an unusual spin on the usual puzzle or color matching games. Colors are all around us in the real world, and Spectra uses them to complete a target illustration or work of art. Users can select an easy level, where the colors are limited, and easier to match, all the way up to an expert level, where the colors are tougher to get an exact match to.
* Camera Painting: Match the colors in the surrounding area to the game’s image to the using the iPhone’s camera
* Users may test their skills with three levels of difficulty: Novice, Expert, and Master
* 8 free paintings are included – Buy hundreds more in a number of themes, from Abstract to Wildlife
* Use the iPhone’s built-in flash as a flashlight to illuminate colors to capture them in low-light situations
* A Pinch-to-zoom feature helps the camera capture the perfect color
“Color matching puzzles are a dime a dozen on the iPhone, so we decided to put our own unique twist on them,” says Renniksoft founder Clive Skinner. “By using the iPhone’s built-in camera for color matching, we feel that we’ve turned the genre on its head. Plus, it’s completely up to the player’s imagination as to what objects they’ll use to match the target colors. A player could select a vase, whatever is on their dinner plate, or even their cat’s fur to match a desired color! One of our users called the app, ‘Pokemon Go meets coloring books,’ and I’d have to agree that is the perfect way to describe the app!”
While the 8 free paintings that are included with the download of the app will offer hours of challenging fun, especially since players can replay each illustration on one of three different levels, the fun doesn’t have to end there. Players can also download new illustrations, images, paintings, and cartoons, all via the app’s convenient in app-purchase function. That means the fun never has to end. Additional Painting Packs are available via in-app purchase, and include:
* Art Nouveau
* Folk Art
* Natural World
* Pop Art
* Travel Art
“Players are going to love Spectra, and we can’t wait to see what they’ll point their cameras at to match the colors of the images in the game,” continues Skinner. “Although we do hope they’ll explain to everyone around them why they’re pointing their iPhone’s camera all around the room. Heck, everyone else might want to download Spectra, and join in the fun too!”
Spectra – Camera Painting 1.1 is free and is available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category. Convenient in-app purchases are available for $0.99 to $3.99 USD (or an equivalent amount in other currencies) to add additional painting packs for even more fun.
