This is a great game and even though the prototype version was on PC, it's the kind of game that was made for touch. TCHOW is a great indie dev, I've played a few of his other games, and Rainbow is probably one of his best.

Wouldn't really call it a puzzler, maybe an action puzzle game, but it's more about maneuvering and finding the best path through each maze like level. The game offers a nice amount of replay value, as each level has four objectives: simply complete the level, collect all stars, complete the level without lifting your finger, and complete a level only splitting your rainbow X amount of times. You can play each level multiple times and need different strategies for each of those objectives

The art style is wonderful, it's challenging but not unfair (you can always see where your path is going to lead you), and the developer plans to add more content depending on how well the game does.

Anyone playing this? Seriously, don't overlook this game. Rainbow demonstrates the unique abilities of touch controls very nicely. It's challenging and colorful, and the levels quickly grow more complex. Trying to complete the three optional objectives in each level not only requires pre-planning and mastery of the mechanics, it also adds a ton of replay value because you need to play differently to achieve each one.

Highly recommended and the developer said this when I asked about future content

Got lucky on this one, usually lose money as an early adopter. Plays ok, but kind of don't like the grey color scheme. Maybe a black background would be better.

Thanks Andy, I somehow missed this explanation and then I kinda gave up on the game. Might reinstall and try again. Thanks for the explanation.
