Summary

Rainbow Moon is a solid RPG that has a wonderful presentation coupled with great graphics. It feels like a Nintendo game in a way but soon it turns into a punishing slog. Combat is familiar yet fair. The game is now on all PlayStation platforms and this is by far the definitive version purely for the graphic and performance boost. It is a decent RPG and a must for anyone craving an RPG lite affair.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
