WP7 AOTW: Rainbow Rapture

This weeks AOTW is Rainbow Rapture by Kindling Games. This is the first game to appear as my AOTW, and for a very good reason. It’s just about the most random, weird, trippy and truly fantastic Tiny Wings rip off ever.

Yes, it is yet another game where you slide up and down hills trying to get as far as possible. However this app deserves an AOTW not for originality, but for the fact that it has taken an old idea and made it different. The whole basis of this game is that you are a rainbow/cloud/god thing that helped to create the world and all its beauty. The humans, however, have taken your world and turned it grey and boring. Because of this, you have decided to destroy them.

By eating them.

There are three main power-ups in the game. these are car, oil and blimp. The car gives you a speed boost, the oil allows you to slide across the ground and the blimp makes you suck up people as you fly over them.

Have a look at our gameplay demo (filmed in our office) in the video below.

  1. […] Rainbow Rapture It pains me to deny Flipboard the crown, but Rainbow Rapture is a deserved winner of the ‘coveted’ award. Based on a fantastically simple idea best known as Tiny Wings, Kindling Games turn it into the most trippy, colourful, entertaining and damn hilarious app ever. Such is it’s appeal that it is a good enough reason to switch to Windows Phone. We love it and that is why it defeats such behemoths as Angry Birds to take the title of Best App of 2011. Our video review and Henry’s thoughts on it are here. […]
