As the name of the resource pack suggests, the MS Painted Texture Pack allows Minecraft players to explore a world that bears the same aesthetics of the MS Paint program. Although a dated program when compared to other art-based programs, MS Paint can be used by anyone, and is awash with vibrant colors, so it should come as no surprise that the aesthetics are an excellent match for those searching for a retro spin to their sandbox game.

Those that like to experiment in the world of Minecraft with different resource packs will not only find MS Painted to be a lot of fun but will also find the true characteristics of MS Paint shine through, including limited colors and bold designs. Whereas some resource packs can be demanding on hardware, the MS Painted Resource Pack can be run on most types of computers without the need of a more powerful device. This means the resource pack is perfect for those that may have issues running more powerful resource packs, but still want the opportunity to sample the different skins available.

As the resource pack is based on MS Paint, using vibrant colors allows for clear visuals and smooth textures with little to no noise. It should be noted that the MS Painted Resource Pack will not be for everyone, and younger players could find that the visuals are a little overwhelming when compared to the vanilla iteration of Minecraft. Fortunately, the settings can be amended with ease, so the brightness of the colors can be toned down for those who find the visuals are a little overbearing. MS Paint was originally known as Paintbrush between 1985 and 1995, before being re-branded in 1996. This fits in perfectly with the MS Painted resource pack review, as the renders introduce artwork very reminiscent of 90s pop culture.

The experience on offer can be comparable to entering a 90s carton show, including ‘Rugrats’ or ‘Rocko’s Modern Life’, and is perfect for those dedicated to Saturday morning cartoons. For example, visiting fish tanks in Minecraft when using the MS Painted Resource Pack offers familiar waves created using simple brush strokes. Some may be surprised to know that the MS Painted texture pack started as a joke, but the popularity of the idea meant it was created and developed into a fully working resource pack, which was created in Microsoft Paint using a mouse, although other programs were used to apply transparency to textures.
