The shoot ‘em up is a bit of a niche choice these days. Long gone are the days where Galaga and Space Invaders were the hottest games on the market. The genre now seems defined by small indie releases via the PlayStation Store. Fast Striker comes courtesy of a German developer, the confusingly named NG:DEV.TEAM. It’s a shmup...
Taste the Rainbow

Rainbow Skies is bigger and better than its predecessor in pretty much every way. There's a much stronger narrative this time round and you can tell that a lot more effort has been poured into...
Look to the skies
Bloody hell, that took a while didn't it? Rainbow Skies -- sequel to much loved PlayStation 3, Vita, and PlayStation 4 title Rainbow Moon -- finally has a release date. We first heard about Rainbow Skies all the way back in 2013. Back then, it was set to launch on PS3 and Vita in 2014. Crazy. Ever since, the game's been in and out...

Lost Sea is a top down indie roguelike with a unique visual style and retro sensibilities. Clearly, there is a danger for it to get lost in a sea of superior competitors. We'll be the first to admit that that joke was pretty obvious. But just because a joke is obvious, doesn't mean it isn't true. The title sees you playing as an...

Over the moon
It's easy to be fooled by Rainbow Moon's light-hearted visuals; you'd be forgiven for thinking that the title bares more resemblance to some free-to-play mobile fancy, for example, than it does an 80 hour fantasy epic. However, underneath its fun-loving exterior, SideQuest Studios' popular adventure is just that and more. There's a...
The treasures at the end of the rainbow
It seems like an eternity since we heard about Rainbow Skies - the sequel to PlayStation 3 and Vita role-playing game Rainbow Moon. It's been so long, in fact, that the developer behind it has now decided to bring the release to the PlayStation 4 next year, and it'll apparently boast cross-save functionality...
The solo questing experience of the JRPG-inspired Rainbow Moon managed to steal our hearts when it launched on the PlayStation Vita a few years back. And to this day it's still able to enthral those late to the party, following its addition to this month's PlayStation Plus lineup. Of course, if you've already seen everything that...
Richer than a pot of gold
Lore has it that leprechauns leave pots of gold at the end of a rainbow. Seeking out the end of the colourful arch will bestow vast riches upon the adventurer – the reward for a dangerous and long journey, where the goal is often hidden from sight. Similar treasures can be uncovered in the PlayStation Vita port of Rainbow...

After months of lobbying from rabid fans, Eastasiasoft has announced that its excellent SRPG Rainbow Moon is heading to the PlayStation Vita. The studio was apparently inundated with requests to port the title following the successful release of the PS3 game, giving the developer the incentive it needed to commit to the handheld...
Loot is utterly worthless if it doesn’t have an impact upon your character’s appearance, but thankfully SideQuest Studios’ upcoming Rainbow Moon has that covered. The developer has released a brand new behind-the-scenes video outlining the game’s in-depth item and crafting systems. It all looks rather meaty, doesn’t it? The game...
There’s a delightfully retro flavour to this Rainbow Moon launch trailer. Everything from the harsh arpeggiated lead melodies right through to the lashings of reverb applied to the announcer’s vocal samples help to sell the throwback feel. The game itself looks excellent too. You’ll be able to get your hands on the old-school...

Eastasiasoft's retro PSN exclusive Soldner-X: Himmelssturmer was as hard to play as its name is to pronounce
