Rainbow Islands


     

Today, I loaded up Rainbow Island on my Atari ST and I fondly remembered the time I saw it in our local computer shop. I was instantly hooked by those gorgeous colours and the fun effects, it looked so amazing! After paying lots of cash, I walked home as fast as my lanky legs could carry me! This is probably one of the most famous platformers on the Atari ST and there isn't anything new I could tell you here. It is literally one of the best games on any 16-bit computer, the graphics, audio, and gameplay are all OUTSTANDING. Waste no more time, play Rainbow Islands!
