Action Designer Ultraman Tiga (Pippin)

Playback from the original disc for Pippin, Macintosh, and Windows 3.1/95.

Action Designer: Ultraman Tiga is based on Flying Colors, an educational digital paint tool developed by Edward de Jong at Magic Mouse, with artist Mark Ferrari.[1] It uses color cycling animation within a 256-color palette to create the illusion of motion.[2]

Printing from the Pippin is supported through a limited number of Apple StyleWriter printers.[3] However, at least a 2MB memory upgrade is required to access this feature.[4]


Action Designer: Ultraman Tiga was released solely in Japan by Bandai Digital Entertainment in 1997. It is one of the only Pippin hybrid discs to also support both Macintosh and Windows. An English version was never released due to licensing issues.[5] Magic Mouse also developed similar titles, such as Anime Designer: Dragon Ball Z for Pippin and Macintosh, and Tamagotchi Sketch for Windows and Macintosh.[1]
