With so many match 3 games, the gameplay now tends to become boring. Although the look and theme are different, the core instructions remain the same. For this reason, the Rainbow Wings is a different league. Colorful and entertaining, it has enough twists and surprises to make it stand out.
The game still borrows some of the basics of a match 3: Each level has a goal, which includes collecting certain-colored pillows. To clear the grid, you need to make at least three matches either horizontally or vertically. It also introduces some barriers some ice or “peanut butter sandwich.” To get rid of the latter, for example, you need to make matches around them.
But Rainbow Wings makes it more interesting. For one, you can create various matching patterns. While others stick to columns and rows, this one allows you to make a T or an L. So the more options you have, the faster you can clear the grid and collect the pillows.
Early on in the game, you can already use a lot of boosters and “bombs.” There’s the laced object, which, when matched to at least two more similar items, can clear a row or a column. The color wheel, meanwhile, allows you to swap it with an object you wish to collect throughout the grid.
There are certain boosters you cannot get unless you’ve reached a certain level. This is great since it motivates you to truly play the game rather than sort of paying your way.
Rainbow Wings also has a smooth and gradual progression, so if you’ve never played a match 3 game ever, you won’t have a hard time playing this one.
The game has a theme, which is basically preventing the cat from catching the bird. This one, however, is not prominent in the actual gameplay. Rather, you’ll notice it as you complete the levels. You’ll see the bird going up until it reaches the skyscraper. It’s a subtle but definitely nice way of telling a story.
At first glance, it may look like a child’s play with its colors and illustrations, but it still does require some strategy since you don’t want to use up all your moves. The good news is the limit is more than enough. Moreover, you have five free lives available. If you used them all, you can wait for them to replenish. Otherwise, use your coins to buy a life.
Speaking of in-game purchases, Rainbow Wings is also unique in this area. Usually, you use real coins to buy the items you need. With this one, you use real coins to buy virtual coins, which you can then use to purchase boosters (which are available in bundles).
As a Facebook game, which you can play only in the Gameroom, you can share a screenshot of your progress. If you like mobile, you can download this on Google Play.
Overall, Rainbow Wings is a fun, cute, refreshing, and beautifully rendered match 3 game.
