A very colourful single screen platform game. “Rainbow Bomb” certainly lives up to its name.
Apart from the annoying colour scroll as you move, the game seems to be fairly playable at its current stage, though some jumps are hard to make and avoiding the enemies in time is quite difficult in some parts.
Graphically, apart from the colour, the actual graphics are quite simple. The colour merely covers this up slightly.
The game is quite similar to “Bubble Bobble” and “Twin Terrors”, though not quite as advanced as these games.
Gaz Spence suggests that the game was developed by someone called Nik, which could be a scene handle. There were a number of “Nik” handles in CSDB, so could it be by one of those?
Hopefully there is a more complete version out there which offers a bit more than this preview. Bubble Bobble on weed.

The actual name of this game is Rainbow Bomb. There is coder credit – Nik – possibly a scene handle. The music within the game is probably just a placeholder because it was first released in 1988 by Sami Seppä (Rock).
