The basic idea

BrainBow is a teamgame where aim and fast reactions are of the essence. The last team standing wins the game.

How to play

  • Use /vote <Map> or the options displayed in the chat to vote for your preferred map.
  • Up to four teams compete in a game.
  • Every team starts the game in their own base.
  • The whole floor of the map is filled with special blocks. Stand on them while shooting to use their special effects!
  • Redstone blocks will change your arrow into a tnt. Shoot it into the colored score fields above your enemies' bases.
  • If a tnt explodes in your own score field your team loses a heart. If your team lands a tnt in the enemies' fields you gain half a heart.
  • Having no hearts left means not being able to respawn anymore. If all players are then eliminated, the team is eliminated as a whole.
  • The last team standing wins and gains the most points and pixels.
  • Reaching 1000 points in BrainBow unlocks a special trophy in the pixelshop: The BrainBow.
