About this game

Developer: 13AM GAMES
Content Rating: Everyone


Runbow is a platform racer with a unique art style and a never-before seen colour mechanic that will keep you running back for more. Up to nine players can race their way to victory, online or locally. Platforms and obstacles appear and disappear as the background colour changes, so if you can’t see something, it doesn’t exist. Whether you're playing alone or with friends, Runbow is fast, frantic, and a lot of fun.

Players can race against each other in The Runbow Run, or go head to head in a number of VS. modes including Last Man Standing, Competitive Co-Op, King of the Hill, and Pinball to name a few. Using the Wii U GamePad, players can also race against one malevolent ColourMaster who controls the colours and the obstacles in the level. Our toughest game mode is The Bowhemoth, a 30+ minute platforming challenge that will put the patience and skill of even the toughest players to the test.

Runbow is one of the most colorful entries to the local multiplayer gaming world and it also proves to be one of the best, with numerous game modes, simple mechanics, and a variety of ways to anger your friends.

If you love party games, Runbow is definitely a game to add to your library, even for the single player Adventure mode it’s worth it. There are hours of replay-ability in the Adventure and Bowhemoth modes, tons of unlockable content, and of course hours of fun online or local multiplayer. With six different game modes you’ll never get bored. This is a game you don’t want to miss out on; so pick your favourite controller, invite some friends over, and start the party.

With more shade than a Dulux colour chart, Runbow is a multiplayer marvel and manages to run at great length with such a simple idea. With a roaringly sax-orientated soundtrack to boot, it easily ranks tall among the Nintendo eShop’s ‘Nindie’ darlings.
