Description: Do you like to draw? How about animate? Now you can do both while surrounded by a 360 degree view of your art. Circumpaint allows you to paint with pixels on a hemispherical canvas with you at the center. And when you’re ready you can move beyond stills using page flip style animation. Uses the touchpad, or use a gamepad to access shortcuts.

“I ended up animating a pixel dragon breathing fire, it was silly but cute. It made me laugh and want to play a bit more. The developer clearly understand the limitations of trying to paint with your head, I appreciate the choices that they made to deliver a surprisingly satisfactory experience.”

Review: Circumpaint is a block/2D 8-Bit style painting program with some fun tools and a simple to use UI. Sadly it is far from perfect and many other free apps do a much better job and offer a much better range of tools and options and many of them 3D not just 2D. But sometimes you just want to let your creativity fly and if you love the block/8bit style of graphics you will enjoy being let loose inside Circumpaint. If you don’t specifically like the 2D style of drawing, give it a miss.
