was there even one duff release of this game?

 

The DS one where you drew rainbows on the screen? :P 

 

I know there's an "extra" version playable on MAME and as an additional mode on the Mega Drive, which has slightly shuffled enemies and bosses; that might be worth a look if this wins...

I can remember having to collect the rainbows in colour order to get a big diamond

Was a toss up between Dragon’s Fury, Mega Man X and Doom for. Decided to go for Mega Man X in the end as I didn’t vote for it last month despite originally nominating it.

you mean their location on the screen dictates the diamond colour?

Collecting in colour order triggers a secret room that you can enter whilst on the boss screen (in some versions, at least.) I was never good enough to do it without deliberately burning through continues, since the random drop chance kept screwing me over. :blush:

the drop of the coloured diamonds is not random, you can force them to land in certain places

Ah, I knew the positioning affected things, but I wasn't sure about the actual thing that's dropped by an enemy (either a diamond or another item) - I thought that changed depending on whether an enemy was hit by a star, a falling rainbow, or other stuff.

Been working all day today so not had time to set up the new thread. I’ll sort it out tomorrow.
