Play OverviewPlay Overview

Rainbow Friends (2021) (Roblox) is a horror adventure where you try to survive a series of nights in a mansion. Each night you are hunted by a series of different coloured enemies, each with different abilities. You have the sole ability to hide in a box to keep yourself safe. It takes the tension of games like Five Nights at Freddy's and Poppy Playtime in a more strategic direction.

You join a group of other players on a school trip. But after the school bus crashes you have to take refuge in a scary mansion. Each round you need to avoid being caught by the different enemies:
  • Blue: For the first four nights he hunts you and can open doors and go up or down ladders. If he spots you he runs towards you. He's not as fast as players and is easy to trick.
  • Green: He can't see, so uses his sense of touch to get around. If you stay still he can't find you, but if you do move he can find you even in a box.
  • Purple: He stays in a vent system to try and catch you if you step on it.
  • Orange: He spends most of his time in his hideout although does go on the hunt for players if he needs feeding.

The result is a tense survival challenge that keeps the experience on the safe side of scary. "It was supposed to be a normal field trip... But the Rainbow Friends want to play."
