- Genre: Platform
Rainbow Islands is a sequel to Bubble Bobble. Protagonists Bubblun and Bobblun now appear in their human forms as Bubby and Bobby. The objective is to climb to the top of each stage in a time limit, while avoiding or destroying various baddies along the way.

The players can summon rainbows which can be used as platforms and weapons. In a TAS, they can be abused greatly to allow dizzying rates of ascent.

This run obtains the bad ending, because it does not collect any of the Big Diamonds used to unlock the secret last level.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.

Webmasters, please don't link directly to the files. Link to this page or the front page instead.
