X-Rainbow, available for both iOS and Android, is the kind of game that sneaks up on you. You start to play it, and soon get into the rhythm of the gameplay, not realising that you have sneakily become completely addicted to the whole thing.
The secret of X-Rainbow’s success, is its variety.
Most puzzle games get a formula and stick to it, aside from the occasional bonus round, but X-Rainbow’s creators really, really play with the formula they have invented, so much so that you never know what you are getting with each level. The game is, perhaps, best described as a version of Arkanoid with the modern mechanics of a physics puzzler, although that description really doesn’t do the game any justice.
Here, straight from the developer, are the game’s best features:
• A fun original game with great gameplay
• Includes 70 levels with a variety of challenges
• Easy to play, challenging to master
• Straightforward level help
• Refreshing colorful graphics
You can shoot balls around the levels at your own leisure, although some levels have different elements that create their own rules, and it is possible to ‘nix’ yourself, meaning it is impossible to proceed, but if you take your time and don’t always shoot the balls off like a machine gun, you should prevail on most of the impressive 70 levels included in the game.
It really is the most refreshing game I have played on the iPhone for quite some time, with the impressive and colourful graphics helping you to want to come back to it time and again.
If you are looking for a fresh, unique take on action puzzle games with bags an bags of variety, then look no further than X-Rainbow.
