    Definitely consider this one as a stocking stuffer for the artistically-inclined younger DS owner in your life. It's a brilliant idea.
  2. My expectations were somewhat low given that this is a licensed title, but Crave Entertainment and developer DC Studios took the high road by utilizing the Crayola name and creating a game that kids are sure to enjoy for quite sometime.
  3. Check the three criteria above. If you fit all three, go for it. Otherwise, best stick to real coloring books.
  4. The key elements of the game don’t quite impress, but the lighthearted novelty may appeal to a few adults and a good handful of children. The coloring book portion of the game is the highlight of the title, pulling it slightly back up from the other areas where it slips a little.
  5. Only the lack of a save option for the Colouring Book and some decent background music let this game down a little.
  6. A short but sweet burst of preschool tomfoolery. [May 2008, p.84]
  7. The gameplay is adequately fun, but could have been better if the stylus possessed a greater touch sensitivity.
  8. Only inflict on youngsters when you're absolutely desperate. [May 2008, p.75]
  9. It's a good game, but there's isn't much to it apart from colouring, which is the whole point.
  10. Crayola Treasure Adventures to quote a famous phrase ‘does exactly what it says on the tin’ and delivers an enjoyable colouring experience through the DS touch screen.
  11. A decent purchase for the little ones if you’re expecting dross from the adventure mode (which by now you surely are), and you can pick it up at a decent price.
  12. The absolutely tiny amount of adventure content, and the fact that the puzzles simply won't be any challenge to a child of reading age, makes it impossible to give this game a particularly good score.
  13. Typically, Crayola Treasure Adventures is a far better colouring-book than it is a game. There's very little range, and the mini-games won't hold your kids' attention for long, but if you're sick of losing crayons down the back of the couch this may be for you.
  14. There is fun to be had here for children who are particularly fond of colouring and puzzles, but if they’re that keen, you can get the real thing for a tiny fraction of the cost of this (as well as being able to look at your work later), and so there’s little reason to buy Crayola Treasure Adventures.
