If You've Got A Wii U, Play Runbow

With everyone obsessing over Super Mario Maker, you might be ignoring Runbow.

The top five games on the eShop right now are Super Mario Maker, Splatoon, The Legend of Zelda, Ocarina of Time, Runbow, and Super Mario World.

Wait, what was the fourth one?

I know most people hit the snooze button the moment another 2D platformer shows up, but Runbow's gimmick had me intrigued. The colours are constantly changing in the world, altering what platforms are available to jump on.

It gets really wild in some of the more challenging modes, forcing players to keep a mental map of the platforms, even when they're not visible.

In my video, I'm playing solo, but Runbow really shines when you introduce other people. For many stages, it's possible for nine people to punch and jump at once, which quickly turns into chaos.

Seems like the perfect game for a bunch of friends and a bucket of beer, no?


    Looks awesome. Kinda reminds me of Speedrunners on Steam, which is also super fun and awesome and everyone should play it.

    I don't think this is available in the Australian Wii U eShop though?

      Was going to ask this.

      The Oz eShop seriously lacks the good indie titles.

      from what i can gather they might release it to AU/NZ right after they release the first patch (which fixes bugs and frame rate issues).

      Unfortunately not at this stage. It was meant to arrive a few weeks ago, but due to the local classification process, the game has been delayed. As already mentioned above, 13AM have provided an update on the situation via Twitter:

    For anyone interested, JB is having a sale on Nintendo eShop Credit
    I hope this helps someone when this gets released here.
