Outside the Lines is a free top-down shooter where drawing utensils compete to cover a coloring book with their color.Features:
  • A colorful cast of three characters with different abilities. Only one of them doesn't have alliteration in its name!
  • Fast-paced gameplay with short rounds. Watching paint dry has never been more exciting!
  • Eleven different weapons with randomized stats, such as a cotton swab, a dish sponge, and a paintball shotgun.
  • Local multiplayer for two players with a co-op and a competitive mode. Ruin friendships, and then build them back!
  • Sometimes an eraser dude shows up. He's scary.
  • This game was originally made in three days for a game jam. Obviously this version of the game took longer but I just wanted to share that.
  • It's free. Like, no microtransactions or anything. I'm literally not making any money from this.

nice little game, quite repetitive, but my 6 year old son enjoyed it. For the record, the last success is simpler in co-op;)

Outside the lines free, lightweight, little greedy in resource, playable against the CPU or against friends. However, I have to plug a pad Xbox360 because my T16000M are not supported...

It Is a simple and fast game, something similar to the Splatoon but with fewer things. It'S Good to hang out and the accomplishments are easy. The only bad thing is the music and it does not have multiplayer in online (which would be something necessary).

A sweet Game for between through. It's just nicely done, even if the Controls take some getting used to. Plus, it's super fast downloaded (with 8Mb) and tried. Nevertheless, I am sorry to have the Opportunity to play with Friends.

A game that has merit only its free. The concept is OK, but realized in an ultra frustrating way. Cannot use a joystick in player 1, speed of hallucinating opponents, random difficulty, quasi-useless weapons (apart from cotton), irritating soundtrack and ultra-limited global interest. A disappointment that is not worth trying.

"Outside The Lines" is a top-down shooter game (yes, I stole it from the description) in which we have to choose between a crayon, a pencil and a pen to cover a notebook with the greatest paint you can. The Game is fast (it doesn't take more than 2 minutes each game), there is a great variety of weapons and tools for how short it is; I'd say it's a good game to hang out with. Personally, I resent the music after a while. Note: If You find it very difficult (which I doubt very much), just grab the big brush or bucket and try to cover what your opponents have done while you avoid being shot. Note 2: Is It me or does the game penalize you quitandote painting when you die? : 0
