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.
If dozens of game modes, hundreds of unlockable costumes, and a crazy, colourful gaming challenge sounds like fun, then you better get ready to Runbow!
