Games where you bring life/colour back to places by purifying/clearing them.

I am a total cow for this stuff.

Please suggest more, as I know there must be plenty out there I've never heard of. Mainly looking for where it's a main mechanic, but will happily add games with a note when it's just a specific section.

Maybe a bit of a stretch for this list, but in Sonic CD if you destroy Eggman's machine in the past you get a good future level without enemies and with the green back

sonic generations kinda counts i think, beating missions and levels restores color to the hubworld.

Concrete Genie. I think. It's been a while, but it's about making a run down town looking more vibrant with your art.

Also this mechanic was one of the main things I liked about Assassin's Creed 2 with that family estate you gradually tart up
