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.

Even for someone as inept at platformers as I am, Runbow is still a lot of fun. The bite-sized stages really help keep the game moving, even when I'm performing poorly, and the aesthetic is incredibly easy on the eyes. There's some zany good times to be had with the multiplayer as well, and I'm sure Runbow will soon find its way into the rotation as a go-to party game in my household.

The best way to describe Runbow is that it feels like the kind of idea that would’ve made for a creative series of one or two levels in a Mario game, but here that’s the entire game from start to finish with little variation. I can’t stress enough that you probably just shouldn’t bother with Runbow unless you have at least three or four friends with whom to play with on a regular basis.
