This little pegasus pony wants a new outfit! Change color, wings, mane, tail and cutiemark! Observe her reactions to find out what she likes! She is really picky, though, so good luck!

Let me make clear that I am not affiliated with McDonalds, Hasbro or any of those in any way.

Remember that My Little Pony game on McDonald's "Happy Studio" website? No? Equestria Daily had an article on that thing a few weeks ago. However, that game was rather hard to find as only a few language options led to a section where it was accessible and you had to create an account and whatnot.
What you see here is basically a "china copy" of said game - an almost 1:1 clone. The animations and pony graphics as well as sounds were extracted from the SWFs found at happy studio. Backgrounds and UI elements are mostly traces or remakes, primarily due to my JPEG allergy. The code was written from scratch, trying to imitate the original game as closely as I felt like.

If you are wondering why I made this clone: I recently got a copy of the Adobe CS 5.5 including Flash Pro and decided this would be a good chance to get into Flash and ActionScript (3.0) - no better way to learn something than to do it. Let me tell you that I learned a lot! I just can never come up with some own original ideas.
Furthermore, this way the game is far more accessible for the online pony community: no language barriers, no need to register an account at a kids website plus it works as a "standalone" SWF (Flash player required, of course). Not that it was such a great game or anything, but the fans want to consume everything they can get, right? So there you go.

If McDonald's or Hasbro have a problem with this because of copyright stuff, I'll take it down if they wish so.
I wouldn't know why they should care, though. There isn't really that much to it, is there? Well, it's up to them.
As far as I care, anyone may share this thing anywhere. It's not really mine, it's theirs.

One last thing, thanks to Cameron Desrochers for the PNGEncoder2 library used for photo saving.
