  • Excerpt: Date: 10/24/2006 Rainbow Islands Revolution is a remake of what some would call an arcade “classic”. But really makes a game a “classic”? And more importantly, is Rainbow Islands truly a “classic”? Before I answer these questions let’s take a look at the game itself… Rainbow Islands Revolution is a platform game in which you must float your character inside a bubble up through the game’s levels while avoiding birds and furry critters who want to kill you.

  • Summary: The game's presentation and visuals are excellent, with colorful levels, brightly designed sprites and smooth animation used to create a distinctly retro feel with some modern touches. This should make the game appeal to both retro gamers and younger players looking for something action-oriented yet comic and bright. Unlike many other misguided updates, Rainbow Islands Revolution sticks with what works and its 2D presentation works nicely with the DS' screen.

  • Conclusion: Undermined by poor game design and clumsy implementation of the DS' features, Rainbow Islands Revolution is the last game you'd take to a solitary desert hideaway

Rainbow Islands Revolution

  • Conclusion: Nej, Rainbow Islands Revolution är rätt kul som bäst, men mestadels bara hyfsat och vid några tillfällen riktigt unket. Allt hade varit förlåtet om man faktiskt lagt med originalversionen som man hade gjort i Bubble Bobble remaken, men den lyser med sin frånvaro. Varför man valt att inte ta med den är och förblir en gåta. Varför betyget blir onödigt lågt är däremot ingen gåta, eftersom det är en ren konsekvens av utvecklarnas, i detta fall, dåliga omdöme.
  • Pros: Kul i små doser och mysig grafik.
  • Cons: Dåliga kontroller, Ingen originalversion, Kräver en kassett per NDS för flerspelarläge.
