Plot

Mechanics

Paper Mario: Color Splash for WiiU is a role-playing game requiring the player to explore subsequent locations and complete different assignments. This time, Mario is equipped with a special hammer which allows him to color empty spaces. In doing so, the player earns golden coins, revives different characters and releases inhabitants of the island from imprisonment. The player is engaged in coloring even in combat, though instead of coloring parts of the game world, one is required to color special cards referring to different kinds of attacks.

Technical aspects

Paper Mario: Color Splash for WiiU is unique when it comes to the visuals, because the game combines three-dimensional environments with flat, "paper" character models. In terms of the art style, Paper Mario: Color Splash is a very colorful game as the very title suggests, resembling other games featuring the famous Mario in this aspect.
