Rainbow Mystery
In Brief
Rainbow mystery is a match three game with mini games, power ups and three game modes, i.e. untimed, timed and duel modes. The latter duel mode is locked initially, To unlock you have to play three levels from either of the other two modes. There are two stages Rainbow Village (stage 1) and Rainbow County (stage 2), each with 36 levels, that you follow on a map of each area. As you progress through these stages you will build up your village by adding homes, windmills, train lines, a bridge over the river, farmers crops as well as for Stage 2, special sites of interest such as stone circles, a leaning tower of Pisa, a Muslim temple, a castle/palace, a Hobbiton like village with the misty mountains and Smaug the dragon sitting on his pile of treasure in the background, and even a star-gate like portal, (see images below). All of these objects are added automatically when you arrive at one of the points on each map that has a larger marker. The duel mode also repeats the two stages with a total of 72 levels to replay with a friend or family member.
The match three mechanic is slightly different from your average match three game. You have to clear away coloured cells that match the colour of the flower. This isn't as easy as you'd expect, especially in later levels. Once the duel mode is unlocked you can play against an opponent using the same computer and taking turns to move. The person with the highest score at the end wins the round..
















If you aren't into match three games, then perhaps one of (IMO) the best breakouts ever created may be more to your taste? Check out the Game discussion forums for details of other free games, for example Breakquest HERE, it's one of my all time favorite breakouts that has been converted to freeware. Also the latest Epic Store freebie is The Wolf among Us. Based on the award-winning Fables comic books (DC Comics/Vertigo). As Bigby Wolf - THE big bad wolf - discover that a brutal, bloody murder is just a taste of things to come in a game series where your every decision can have enormous consequences. Also available for free from Epic games this week is The Escapists a unique sandbox action strategy game where you attempt to escape from prison. Delenn also posted details of a couple of non steam games that are temporarily free called Wasteland 1 and 2; these are atmospheric post apocalyptic open world turn based RPG adventure/strategy games with an isometric viewpoint similar to the original Fallout series. You'll find Wasteland 2 the directors cut via GOG HERE, once you've got it click on it via your GOG library then click on more and serial keys to get the first one for free as well. Don't forget to check out Indie Gala's Dev's showcase for more free games HERE. You can play the coop/multiplayer game Insurgency: Sandstorm a team-based, tactical FPS based on lethal close quarters combat HERE via Steam for free until Tuesday 17th December. Also available to play for free for the next day is Conan Exiles, a previous limited giveaway. You'll find the Steam page for Conan Exiles HERE; it's on sale for 60% off, with various deals encompassing the DLC as well. It's definitely a great game, especially if you like survival fantasy RPG's with an open world aspect. The graphics are brilliant too.

Cool Cats,

Hi Cool Cats, unfortunately no, the duel mode is for two players that use the same computer. Much like we used to play pinball games a decade or so ago. I've not actually played the duel mode yet, so not sure exactly how it works, but I would expect it to be a turn based system as you cannot move more than one tile at a time, so there would be conflict between the two players trying to move tiles. Also, I didn't see a twin control set up for both players. I'll confirm this later once I've finished adding to my comment above.


The duel mode is unfortunately just against the games AI. You take turns to clear the coloured squares. It's actually quite challenging. My first two attempts ended in failure..

Whiterabbit-uk, hi .

8 hours solid !!!
What game ?
My record of gameplay is 16 hours .
I've started playing at 14:30 and stopped at 06:30 .
Basically the Sunrise light startled me and forced me
to stop ..
It was summer , I had the balcony door open , as the
Sun was rising , at some point , the light reflected of
the glass of the balcony door and hit the spot of the
room were I was playing , making me jump of my chair .
I was deeply immersed in to the game and not realising
what time it was , my first thought was that someone was
hitting my room with an enormous antiaircraft spotlight :-)
After violently returned to the "officially real" universe , I've
decided to go to sleep .

The game I was playing was Star Wars - Dark Forces II .
I miss Kyle Katarn so much ...
I wish Lucasarts would release more games of the
Dark Forces series , or even re-release the old series ,
using the latest game engine .
Considering the fact that Lucasarts hunts down and bites
on the throat , anyone who is creating a mod of the games ,
trying to revive them , my only hope to see Kyle Katarn
again , is to wait Lucasarts to do it .
By the way , do you know any mod of the Dark Forces series
that is still alive or playable today ?

Having played Dark Forces I , where Kyle Katarn
steal the plans of Death Star and delivers them to the Rebellion ,
you can imagine how mad I was when I saw Disney's "version"
of Star Wars ...

I was playing Dead Island cooperatively with a friend. There are usually four of us playing, so becasue there were only two of us we just played without doing any of the main or side quests, just replaying quests that can be repeated over and over and killing zombies, opening crates to get weapons, most of which we sold to upgrade or modify our main weapons, mainly to gain experience. Considering it is now over 8 years old, it still looks amazing. We also played a little Half-Life 2: Deathmatch (an even older game originally released 15 years ago and still has an active modding community with well over a thousand custom maps released since its release.

I used to play tabletop Dungeons and Dragons and sometimes Tunnels & Trolls (a simpler version of D&D). We would start the game early Saturday afternoon and play through until breakfast time on Sunday. This was a weekly event that lasted for over a year. The only thing that stopped it was I went to university and wasn't able to join in as much. At the time I was disappointed as it had been my turn to be dungeon master and I'd spent almost three months designing a new dungeon and had build a light box that would allow the use of coloured crayons that glowed when the light box was switched on. It made mapping a pleasure. To make the game more interactive, I'd also created different potions that the players had to eat or drink (moon dust {the sweets that explode and crackle in your mouth when they become wet}, sugar, lemon juice, a pinch of salt, apple juice, salted biscuits etc and other consumables. Sweet indicted a positive potion a sour one a negative potion. I also made models of weapons they could find etc. With respect to computer games, I used to play a game called Darklands an RPG set in Europe during the middle ages for up to 12 or more hours without a break apart from the obvious. I still have some saves from that game on a floppy disk, but none of my working computers motherboards support the old floppy discs. I do have a couple of old motherboards, but haven't got around to building a computer with older components yet as I need to buy a couple of cases to start the builds. I think I have all the necessary components and software to create two pre XP computers, but I never seem to have the time. I have a lot of older games that won't play on the latest machines even with emulators, so I will eventually get around to building them and intend installing older Windows platforms. I still have a copy of DOS and a very thick DOS manual, but no early versions of Windows for example Win v3.1 which I used for years. The oldest windows software I still have on disc is Windows 95, plus I have every upgrade up to the latest.

To this day, no RPG has come close to creating such an in depth experience as Darklands (IMO). You can still buy Darklands via GOG and Steam, though for years after it was released it was available for free via loads of abandonware sites; that is until GOG found the original license holder and got permission to start selling it again, so it was removed from those abandonware sites as has many other great games from the 80's, 90's and early 2000's that were available for free from abandonware sites. I just wish some developer would create an updated version of the game.

p.s. I have both of the Star Wars Dark Forces games in my Steam account. THIS and THIS may bring back some memories. :)

Whiterabbit-uk, about the floppy disk problem , I just thought of 2 ways to solve it .
1) buy an external USB floppy disk drive ,
2) buy an adapter cable from IDE to SATA and connect your old floppy disk drive
to your new "floppyless" motherboard .
Although , building an old style computer is very appealing to me too .
Once upon a time , maaaany years ago (2001) , I wanted to build a DOS computer ,
so I could play the dozens of DOS games I was buying from e-bay .
So , I went and bought from e-bay an old DOS PC .
It was not a tower , it was flat and it had an opening "face" that you had to press
to make it slowly (like hydrolick) open , in order to gane access to the floppy and
CD drive .
After all those years , I can't remember the name of the computer , but I thing it was
Apellia or somethig like that .
I also bought from e-bay a lot of componets for DOS computers
(memory sticks , daughterboards and other stuff) , but , as you said , never found the
time to implement my idea .
I still have all of them , stored in a big box somewere .
Maybe some day I 'll dig them up and play your beloved Darklands . :-)
Even thought I am not in RPG games so much .
It's not that I don't like them , it's that I LOVE to much FPS games ...
The only RPG(ish) / Action game that I ever played , was a STAR WARS game called
"Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire" and even that game I've played it as it was an
FPS game .
It "felt" a little bit weird but I've never gave it much of a thought .
After all ... it was a STAR WARS game and , as you know , I love STAR WARS ... :-)
I have played all 4 games of the Dark Forces series , that follows the story of Kyle Katarn ,
from Dark Forces 1 to Jedi Academy and I think that I have all the Pc games of Star Wars .
My favorite is Jedi Outcast but it was to short .
The game that has the greater impact on me is
Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II and it's expansion pack
Star Wars Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith .
Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II is the first game that I bought , installed and played
in my first computer back in 1998 .
Actualy , Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II is the first game that I saw in my monitor .
I found it's demo in a CD inside Pc Master , a Pc magazine published here in Greece .
I can still hear Kyle Katarn's footsteps on metal surface and the sound of his lightsaber when
he drew it . :-)
After finnishing the demo 4 or 5 times I went and bought the game but because I wanted
to know the story from the begining , I went "hunting" for the first game of the series ,
Star Wars: Dark Forces and believe me it was not easy to find .
After a month of searching , I've locate a new seald copy of it , in a store in Athens who
specialised in older games .
You must understand that those days internet was not as mainstream as today .
I think that Google was not invented yet .
I had to read the ads in a lot of Pc related magazines before I found the specific store .
Anyway , I called them , ordered the game and I hade it in my hands the next day .
And because I live in Macedonia , Thessaloniki , about 500 Km North from Athens ,
I had to pay a courier company in order to receive it in a day than 5 to 6 days by mail .
My Pc was running Windows 95 , so I had no problem installing and playing the game in Dos mode .
The problem was that after playing the demo of Dark Forces II , it was pretty difficult to play Dark Forces .
The difference in graphics was enormous .
Nevertheless , I truly enjoyed playing the game .

Thanks for the Youtube links .
I will try to find the HD remake mod of the game .
I hope it's still alive .

Windows 95 was based on DOS 6.2 .
Actually Windows 95 was a "frontend" of DOS 6.2 .
So , you can easily run almost any DOS game in DOS mode .

Downloaded and installed without problems. Runs perfectly on Windows 8.1, but opens minimized on Windows 10. Cannot get it to do anything on Win 10. Any ideas what is wrong there? Did this happen to anyone else? Is it missing Active X or due to some other Win 10 abnormality? No setting using the troubleshooter changed this, I had to force it closed. Downloaded directly from Toomky to Win 10 and got the same open minimized problem, there is something I'm missing about Win 10 (while I enjoy playing it on Win 8.1 I would like to have it on the Win 10 laptop if possible).

Buster Brown,

Hi Buster, have you tried going into compatibility mode and selecting a different OS . i.e. right click on the game exe or the game shortcut and select properties, then select the compatibility tab. From there you can select a different earlier OS to the one you are using. This is an old game , so anything earlier than Win 7 should do the trick. I checked and found mine was set for Vista by default. Check the Admin box and if it still won't work try changing the high DPI settings via the button provided.

Whiterabbit-uk, thanks for your tips. I did try all those suggestions and even made sure that "run" tab setting was to open in a normal window, but no luck. The inability to change it from opening minimized seems to be the biggest hurdle, I've always been able to find a compatibility option that worked for other old games in the past. But not a total loss, it IS working on Win 8.1. :)

Whiterabbit-uk, after more searching online I have just stumbled over the solution! Somehow the tablet mode on the Win 10 laptop (that allows playing games with touch screen) was set wrong. Correcting that setting at login fixed the problem.

This is an older game with outdated graphics. Having said that, the game is a simple flower matching game that results in articles found and the village being rebuilt. It's a game really for kids, namely girls, but adults looking for something to play during a drizzly or stormy day will find this entertaining. I had it downloaded on Win 7 and 10 (64 bit) with no issues.
