Looking past those issues, Runbow is a fantastic game that I believe every Wii U owner should have. It's great single player and even more fun with some friends, both locally and online. Without a doubt, this is a great party game that has all the makings for a must have Wii U title. I can't suggest it enough.
Overall, I will have to say that Runbow has impressed me with its gameplay and simplicity, and all I need now are more friends to play video games with.
One of the best indie games to surface this year, Runbow is a sheer delight, whether you're running through the game on your own or taking up with a group of friends in a fight to the finish. Make sure you rush to the eShop and give it a download.
An unusual fusion, not just because it's a platformer with fighting, but because it's a party game for the hardcore.
As mentioned in the opening, Runbow is easily one of the best games that has graced the Wii U; it's a game that is very Nintendo in every single aspect, from concept to art and sound direction, to the point that Nintendo itself has taken the liberty to celebrate a launch party for Runbow at the Nintendo World Store in NYC. It's an excellent party game with a solid single player campaign and more unlockables than the colours of the rainbow; you won't regret paying the admission for this gem on the Wii U.
Overall, Runbow is easily one of the best indie titles currently available on the Wii U, and the single best local multiplayer game I have played on the console. What really sets Runbow apart though isn't just its multiplayer gameplay, but its plethora of modes, innovative level design, charm, and overall gaming excellence.
With a bevy of different modes and ways to play, Runbow strikes the perfect balance between accessibility and appeal; you'd be hard-pressed to find a reason to turn down a game that's this fun.
There's some zany good times to be had with the multiplayer as well, and I'm sure Runbow will soon find its way into the rotation as a go-to party game in my household.
Runbow is bringing its qualities again to a Nintendo console. Thanks to its simple gameplay and multiplayer mode, as well as to its online capabilities and availability of characters from other indie games, Runbow is a fun and addictive game that could be longer when it comes to its single player mode but it's certainly a welcome addition to the Nintendo Switch catalogue.
