Rainbow Islands

Taito's 1987 title Rainbow Islands is the second arcade game in the popular Bubble Bobble series. It stars Bubby and Bobby, the dragon protagonists of the first game, in their human forms. Players create rainbows which function as both an attack and a platform creation tool, climbing to the top of a series of vertical stages.
