Wii U fans checked it a little over a year ago, and now it is PC users who have the opportunity to have a great time with one of the most cr


azy and addictive proposals of the moment. Run, jump, fight … and look carefully at the colors !, because their presence goes beyond the merely aesthetic. Almost that are the protagonists.


Consistently, every few seconds the color of the background changes and, whenever this happens, the platforms and objects of the same tone present in the sets disappear. For that reason we must always have an eye on the evolution of our character an


d the other in the curtain of color that will bathe the stage. A very interesting and striking playable mechanic that is taken advantage of in the


six main game modes that give shape to Runbow, four are exclusively multiplayer, while the other two can be enjoyed both alone and in company. And although they are all different, they share the same control system.



Multiplayer addiction

Running is the easiest way of all, since it is a desperate race to reach the trophy. Arena offers more fun and substance, since the gam

e is transformed as if by magic into a simplified beat’em up in which our task is to give tow without rhyme or reason to our rivals. King of the Hill harangues us to place ourselves in an area of ​​the stage for as long as possible, offerin
g a pronounced level of fun. Sometimes the action is so chaotic that it is difficult to locate even our character or, directly, discern what happens o
n the screen, but this is part of the grace. It’s hard not to laugh when there are so many characters giving of milk while dodging a sure death that always comes with a lot of color.


Runbow analysis

Although it is possible to enjoy several individual game modes, the grace of this work is its exceptional multiplayer mode.

One of the great strengths of Runbow is that the game feels, to some extent, like a party game . In solitary you have a good time, because it is challenging, but it is when you get together with friends, either through the Internet or in the same team, that y


ou really enjoy their frenetic action. Not always in order to fight! There is also a cooperative to deal with very special game modes such as Adventure, which consists of more than 140 levels that will test you in a thousand


and one different ways. In the end it is always running, jumping and watching the color that predominates on the screen; but surprisingly, with this seemingly simple premise, the 13AM Games game manages to surprise you with ever more disparate challenges.


Runbow PC

Get surprised with increasingly crazy challenges

Flee from deadly traps, fight against enemies, draw impossible abysses, run in a hurry … it’s a no stop! In addition, with a marked arcade style, th

e video game takes into account the speed with which we overcome challenges, rewarding us with various additional content such as illustrations or new characters that in many cases come from other indie games such as Shovel Knight or Shantae among others.



If we get enough medals throughout the main game mode we will unlock extra material and new known characters.

If these challenges do not seem enough, you also have access to the challenging Bowhemoth mode, which takes the action of Runbow to a level only suitable for the most experienced. It is difficult like few! Challenges plataformeros with the style o


f the old school. In addition, as additional content aside, has created a new space adventure with a lot of levels with science fiction theme and more designs with which to customize the protagonists of the game. It would have been great to include it with the main title, but considering that this is already well served content, it is not serious either.


With a graphic style of the most particular where the bright colors on simple objects and flat textures stand out, this is a title that obviously does not draw attention in the graphic, but that in a way, with that minimalist air, ends up liking. In the sound, altho


ugh the melodies are not bad; They are animated and cañeras, it is missing some more variety. The same goes for the sound effects that are, at times, too simple. In the end, however, what remains are the laughter, and these, certainly, camouflage with their rumble any mistake about it.
