In Rainbow, you direct light from the villainous D.D.'s Rainbow Ray through tricky levels in an effort to bring unwanted happiness and excitement to the inhabitants of a gray and mundane island.
While Rainbow's control mechanics are simple, crafty levels and puzzling hazards will test your reflexes and reasoning; and badges reward you for perfecting each level.
- steer rainbows through 30+ levels
- craft your own levels in the built-in editor
- puzzling obstacles
- clean, minimal art style
- badges for added challenge
- plot, including nearly seven* lines of dialog
(* actually six)
Small code fixes; mostly library and SDK version updates and the removal of deprecated functions.
I hope folks out there are still enjoying the game.

Excellent live action puzzler
This game is really great. The puzzles can make your brain hurt and your fingers move fast. The controls are smooth and intuitive. One caveat you should know before playing. The game controls support multi-touch. You can redirect the rainbow this way and not loose the bonus for stopping and starting it. It took me a few tries to figure that out because it wasn't explained.
I find this game curious to play since it doesn't really lure you in with clear tutorials, so playing is a learning experience the whole time. However, once you start to get the ropes, it's pretty enjoyable in a unique indie kind of way. The whole thing feels kind of like an alternative universe's retro game. It would ultimately more enjoyable if when you finished a level, color splashed across the landscape, but because it doesn't, it never feels like you accomplished much. It demands you think a little more creatively, which I always admire especially in iOS games, but the solutions are rarely that gratifying to discover. The game is ask most great, but in this version, I can only say it's good.
Clever puzzle game
This is a slick little puzzle game which never holds your hand past the first level. I like that the difficulty really depends on the challenges you set for yourself -- after completing the levels, you can try to get the optional objectives (sometimes quite hard!) or even try to get multiple optional objectives simultaneously (even harder!).
