In our preview for Rainbow Billy: Curse of the Leviathan, Thomas wrote: Although the demo only provides a brief look at what’s to come, I enjoyed what Rainbow Billy had to offer. It’s certainly not the most complex or challenging game, but it’s a breath of fresh air to play something that doesn’t solely rely on violence as it’s primary method of interaction. I do think the platforming needs some additional polish, but this colourful adventure is already off to a flying start.
