Description

Captain★Rainbow, a superhero from Mameruka, becomes outdated and forgotten when a new hero moves into town. His alter ego, Nick, decides to head for mythical Mimin Island, a place rumored to be able to make anyone's dream come true! While on a raft sailing to the island, he sees something drowning in the water! He quickly transforms into Captain★Rainbow and attempts to rescue it...but he fails, and loses his vital transformation belt. He wakes up on the beach of Mimin Island with a strange bracelet on, and without his belt. What will Nick do now? Will his dream ever come true?

Captain★Rainbow is an adventure game based around happiness. As Nick, your initial goal is to grant your own wish of becoming popular again, and getting off Mimin Island. However, as you explore the island, you discover that it has other inhabitants - minor characters from long forgotten Nintendo games, such as Birdo from Super Mario Bros. 2, Little Mac from Punch-Out!!, Crazy Tracy from The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, Lip from Panel de Pon, and more. These characters all have their own dreams and unfulfilled wishes, and you're able to grant them instead. However, it's often better to get to know them before you grant their wishes, as this opens up new quests relating to other characters and lets you help them out even further.

The game plays mostly like an adventure game with some action elements. You talk to characters, examine objects and pick up inventory to use with different characters and objects. Nick can also charge a "dash" to ram into objects, allowing him to knock things down or break things. When he transforms into Captain★Rainbow, his dash becomes more powerful and he can use his trademark Yo-Yo to attack.
