Highly colourful, devoid of attribute problems and easily as playable as the others, Spectrum owners will have to go a long way to find a better coin-op conversion than Rainbow Islands.
Sinclair User (Apr, 1990)
If you're a fan of the runny jumpy genre, than this is THE game for you. Even If you re not. and would rather have red hot needles thrust into your eyes than play this sort of game, now is your chance to wise up: Rainbow Islands is the most entertaining game released for months.
Your Sinclair (Apr, 1990)
Phew! Just to reiterate then. Rainbow Islands - it's bloomin' brill! Go and buy it, you won't regret it! (Unless, of course, you hate all cutesy Japanese arcade games on sight, in which case you'll loathe it with a vengeance).
Crash! (Apr, 1990)
A classic game has inspired a rainbow-brilliant sequel to savour and thrill to!
