#3: I have the game too. Unlike your opinion, I actually love this game, and finished it a number of times - the only time you'll ever hear the "taste the rainbow" statement is at the end of the game after defeating the final boss. I just find its gameplay similar to Drakan: Order of the Flame to some extent (you just don't have a dragon to ride on - it's entirely on foot). What especially kept me coming back were the silly dialogues (eg "Agh! Fruitcake!?!?!? Begone foul blashphemy! I banish thee to the flaming pits of AARGH where once ye came!" - guess who said that).
#2 - yes the skittles are like runes. You combine a number of them together (in different colors too - the number of each colored type also matters) to obtain different powers, from attacks (a laser like beam, fireballs, iceballs, drain an enemy's health, etc) to defense powers (eg shields and invisibility) to enhancements (eg see invisible objects, increase damage, temporarily shrink to the size of a mouse, extend the time the shield lasts, drive an enemy insane, turn a human into a wizard, etc).
I just wonder why they waited this long before releasing a demo. I actually bought this game purely out of curiousity (it said 3rd Person Action, and that's mainly what got me interested).This comment was edited on Feb 12, 04:30.
