One of my 3 Hanty monitors, yes. Tongue My crappy phone camera makes it look blurry and stripy, though.

I see you've played RI before, Flinnster. Tongue For some reason, I find the controls difficult - keep getting the jump and rainbow buttons mixed up. Also not sure what the hell I'm supposed to be doing, really. LOL

LOL I've been beaten already so no hi-score-superstar here Wink

But yeah, it's one of my all-time faves (along with Bubble Bobble of course).
There are two ways to play for sure ... don't get obsessed with score at first, just learn what the enemies do and how to avoid / kill them.

Its not a hard game, but there are tons of secrets in there.. not sure if I want to post up spoilers because (genuinely) discovering them yourself is one of the fun parts of the game for me.

All I will say is....
- try firing out rainbows above where enemies are, and then jumping up to break the rainbows - they will fall down on the enemies
- you can walk on the rainbows as platforms too, and chain them together to make stairways

You can always reconfigure the mame controls if they are working backwards for you - I think this was actually one of those jamma kit games where the ops made up the panels themselves for all the cabs out there and they never matched what Taito actually specified in the manual!

Can't see why? Clear as mud? Tongue
