Super Rainbow Reef 1.0

This is my second 2d action game.

Have fun playing this game!


The goal of Super Rainbow Reef was to learn to work with standards I could use throughout this game and to develop a standard to work with on other games. This is also the first game that works with lives.

The game

The monstrous Biglegs have driven the peace-loving creatures of Rainbow Reef from their ancestral homes. Despite their inexperience in the ways of war, Pop and Katch have invented a way of combining their skills to fight back against the Biglegs. For this incredible feat, Pop must bounce from Katch’s shell to poke the evil invaders in the eyes. Katch must then move quickly to save Pop from plummeting into the deep waters below. The cowardly Biglegs often retreat behind coral defenses, so our heroes must be prepared to smash their way through if they are to finally drive the Biglegs from Rainbow Reef!

Are you able to help Pop defeat all the Biglegs before you run out of lives?

If you’d like to restart the level, press R and if you’d like to go to the previous level, press P.
Press S to save your game.

Destroy all the biglegs in the reef before you run out of lives.
