The game is a simple concept, use your scooter to perform tricks around the skate park and colour the scenery as you go.
There are 4 different game modes to play. We have mostly be playing Color Frenzy. As you scoot around a trail of paint follows, and the bigger and better tricks you perform more paint is distributed. Each player has a different paint colour and the winner is the player with the most surface area covered in their colour a la Splatoon.
When you ride over your paint colour you get a boost of speed, enabling you to pull off trickier moves. There are also buttons you can activate by performing tricks over them which give you a fountain gush of your paint to cover more surface area.
Theres also Crazy Crayons which is like a capture the flag mode, except with crayons. Trick Run and Splat Tag.
The more points you score and matches you win, the quicker you level up. Once levelled up to the next milestone you get a boss battle, which is an invite from the next player above you in the leaderboard of the Colour Cup to a one on one Scoot battle. Win and you go onto the next stage and overtake the boss in the leaderboard. Reach the top and you win the Color Cup!
The Boss Battles are always the S.C.O.O.T game. In this you both take it in turns to perform the most tricks you can in a short amount of time. Each player has to beat their opponents trick score, you go back and forth until one player fails to get a better score and then they Light up one of their SCOOT Letters. The loser is the first player to light up all the letters and spell out SCOOT. I really love this mode it’s great fun, and you don’t have to wait for a boss battle to play as you can go to the arcade and play against the old bosses again anytime.
The Kids and I have had great fun playing Crayola Scoot. It’s a great little game. I used to love playing Tony Hawk skating on the Gamecube, and Crayola Scoot definitely reminds me of that in many ways. It’s brilliant to have a riding trick game to play again.
