Rainbow Islands is the best videogame ever made, and by that I mean it’s the best example of what a videogame is. I mean just look at the thing, it’s got bright colours and no storyline and cute little animals that turn into fruit when you beat them. You can’t beat it and you shouldn’t even try.
I will always keep coming back to the C64 version, but the Amiga version is widely regarded as the most Rainbow Island-ish. I tried the Mega Drive version, but the default mode replaced all the sprites and it wasn’t until recently I found out you can play it “properly”.
There was a XBLA Rainbow Islands game, but it was crap. It had story. UGH.
