Nothing beats a good puzzle game to help you through the fall darkness, we tested Rainbow Web from Sugar Games.

In the Rainbow kingdom all pearl beads has been scattered all over and been stuck to spider webs by an evil magician and his spider. You are brought in to bring order to the mayhem. The goal of the game is to restore the sunlight in the kingdom.

When starting this game you instantly notice that it’s both different and similar to other puzzle games. The core concept is to match beads of the same colors, when you do they disappear. However you also have to get the beads that are marked with a letter, those beads form a word. When the word is formed you have completed the level. You can match beads horizontally and vertically, as long as they are connected through the web in some way.

Rainbow Web sounds fairly simple but considering the time limit and a spider (that arrives later in the game) removing parts of the web it’s not. The difficulty level is perfect; it starts out pretty easy and gets harder as you progress. Between each level a map is presented to show the journey you make through the kingdom. Nothing really new there but it adds a bit to the story.

Playing Rainbow Web is an addictive experience, actually it’s the most addictive puzzle game I’ve played since Tumblebugs. You can’t simply get enough of matching those beads, it never gets boring.

Sugar Games managed to add elements to the game as you progress, they’ve also included a good soundtrack with some different songs. The soundtrack probably adds a lot more to the game than one notice when playing.

Rainbow Web is also beautiful with plenty of visual effects, however it’s not on top of the pack. Mainly because of some grain in the graphics, maybe because of the color depth or conversion problems when developing the game.

Overall Rainbow Web is a worthy puzzle game, it makes you feel smarter when you’ve played it. It’s also a relaxing experience, a game you don’t want to let go of.
