Paint is an indirect environmental hazard in Robbery Bob. It appears in two colors, blue and green and is found in puddles in some rooms alongside a knocked-over paint can. If Bob walks over a puddle of paint, it will stick to his boots and leave a clearly visible line of footprints as he moves, allowing guards and civilians to track him down. This can, however in some cases, be used to lure them away to another location to progress through the level. The paint will eventually wear off Bob's boots once moves around enough (as long as doesn't touch another puddle of paint in which case the duration will be reset). The foot prints left behind will also fade after some time.
