It seems that Hobo Lobo of Hamelin is the one that I was able to understand the best and the easiest among all the E-lit works we have learned up to now. When comparing with other E-lit that we read or played, Hobo Lobo of Hamelin has a more simple and clear form, which is a webcomic, at least from my perspective. It is talking about and sticking to one story line, which is easy to follow for me.
The story starts with a typical beginning of fairy tale “Once upon a time…”, which makes me feel really familiar and curious soon. The first page of pictures is colored in black, gray, cool-toned yellow and pink, under a gloomy and somber atmosphere. As I clicking on the rest parts of Page 1, all the pictures are colored in the same pattern with the first one, indicating the thread and the mood of the story, which is a dark fairy tale.
Then the main color changes to green as the story turned into Page 2, in which the story is describing the free life of Hobo Lobo. I really enjoyed the slides here, which were so fun and interesting.
Next, the color turned into blue at the first half part of Page3. And the story started to be told in sounds rather than words here.
Followed by the red color in the second half part of Page 3.
I really loved that the color tone of the pictures parallel with the development of story, which helps the readers to understand the story and experience the emotions better and deeper.
