Rainbow Web 2
More Than A Match 3 Game!
If Rainbow Web was a triple threat, than this version is OUT OF THIS WORLD!
The Evil Spider is back again and has shed his web over the Rainbow Kingdom and you, the hero who restored the Rainbow Kingdom last time are on the job of restoring it again.
Here's where I took away a star, again. The graphics in the match 3 portion of the game were wonderful. However, where it counted most - when the Rainbow Kingdom was being systematically restored - the colors were drained and dull. Very disappointing. Even items referred to as "noon-day sun" didn't look even remotely sunny to me.
Background was lilting and soft. Enjoyable.
Rainbow Web II is beyond being the triple threat the last version of this game was. It has it all more of everything and then some. This is a match 3 game embedded in a word-type game embedded in a game of intense strategy embedded in a hidden object game embedded in mini-games of puzzle-making. As in any match 3 game, you must match 3 or more ball colors to remove them from the web. However, there are also balls containing letters that MUST be removed from the web by making match 3s (or more). In order to do this, you must make strategical moves that will enable you to remove all those letters to complete the level. One move can impact several different colored balls, as well as balls with letters. You must always be thinking several steps ahead. At the completion of several levels, you have to play a hidden object game in which pieces of an item are all over a room and you must find them all before proceeding. In addition, you will have to restore pictures by swapping tiles. Oh, and as you level up and the game gets harder, it changes on you - the web design changes! AMAZING GAME!
If not for the poor graphics when rebuilding the Rainbow Kingdom, I would have given this game a solid 5 stars. Normally, this would not be a purchase for me, only because I don't particularly like games of strategy. I prefer my M3s to be more relaxing, but this version of Rainbow Web has me hooked.
I do hope you will try the free demo. It's an hour of your time and, who knows, you may find that you are the king/queen of strategic, match 3, letter-word type games that contain puzzles and hidden objects - lol.
HAPPY GAMING TO ALL!

Not as good as the 1st or 3rd Rainbow Webs
I loved the first Rainbow Web game and have played it through several times. I also like the third game, although not nearly as much as the first. Unfortunately, what was charming in the first game is missing in the second one. While the first game was set in pretty, quirky outdoor settings, this one is set entirely in claustrophobic castle rooms. Also unlike the first game, there is a lot of wordy narration which I finally stopped reading. Events are described which you never see. It was pointless, and the ending is very anticlimactic. I also got tired of matching and matching trying to get the last few letters, or trying to get the stone letters, which you can't match, to drop off. In the third game, you can use a hammer power-up to bash those things, which is a big improvement. But Rainbow Web 2 made me feel bored and frustrated most of the time, and it was a big disappointment compared to the first game.
