The story of Bubble Bobble continues! Bubby is on a magical, mysterious journey. The good people of the Rainbow Island are being held prisoner, and only Bubby's rainbow power can save them!








Anyhow, today I'm going to talk about Rainbow Islands, one of the most disappointing and overrated games in video game history. Rainbow Islands full title is 'Rainbow Islands: The Story of Bubble Bobble 2', because it is, as you'd expect, the sequel to one of the best games ever: Bubble Bobble. In Bubble Bobble the player assumed the role of two little bubble-blowing dragons who were actually two little boys, but changed by some nasty witch who also kidnapped their girlfriends. In Rainbow Islands you've been changed back to the ginger kid again and instead of bubbles they're creating rainbows out of their bodies (outch!) in with which you can trap or take out enemies. You also have to walk on the rainbows, because the levels are vertical and you've to go up. They're some bosses, power-ups and stuff like that, but overall nothing exciting. Biggest letdown is that this Sega Master System version of Rainbow Islands doesn't have a 2-player simultaneous mode, which diminishes most of the fun compared with Bubble Bobble. I find the gameplay becomes tedious rather quickly, the variation is too little and there isn't even one catchy tune to be heard (unlike the original Bubble Bobble). The original Amiga edition of Rainbow Islands was very colorful (maybe a little too colorful at times, because the screen could become a real mess of colors and enemies which made it sometimes pretty hard), but the graphics of this Master System port are below quality. The whole game just looks shallow and grey, even the rainbows, which also tend to flicker a lot. I'm sure the Master System could have handled a better quality port. Overall, Rainbow Islands is just an average game and this Master System port is way below quality. It does in no way live up to the fun and quality of Bubble Bobble - a game everybody should experience at least once in their life. Or I'm just saying that out of nostalgia, after all? -
