Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Rainbow Islands'

Rating:5 User: YOR

In arcade form I much prefer Bubble Bobble compared to this. While this was still a pretty game I never saw the charm in it as much as Bubble Bobble, whose gameplay was much more simplistic and enjoyable. But on the Spectrum there is a significant shift in that I was mildly disappointed with Bubble Bobble over how it looked and sounded, whereas this was a work of art. It looks absolutely incredible with gorgeous colourful graphics and the gameplay I found to be much more fluid and enjoyable than the arcade version. This is proof that Bubble Bobble could and and should have looked better than it did, because this is magnificent. As far as arcade conversions go, some have been good, some have been bad, few have been awful and very few have been perfect, Rainbow Islands is perfect.
