STATUS
The CD-ROM² port of Rainbow Islands was delayed for close to 2 years - by the time it arrived in 1993 it was hard to make much of an impact with a 1987 arcade game.
Still it's an absolutely superb version, that has gained a lot of value as the years go by.

CD case, PC Engine CD-ROM²
disc, colour booklet, spine card.
