Here is my first go. I can get higher but I thought I would give you all a chance.

OMG over 3 Mio. points. What is your secret? Please give me a hint to beat the 100.000 points.

The secret is to collect the diamonds in order from left to right (red, orange, yellow, green, cyan, blue, purple). If you do this then a secret door appears at the end of level boss. Each room holds two items, both worth one hundred thousand points. One of the items is a big diamond and the other is a special item that gives you a permanent power up.  This means that if you have got the power up you will still have that power when you die.

Loads of helpful rainbow islands information here.

My best advice would be that you should remember to not fire the rainbows directly. Always try to crash and drop them on the enemies and that's how you get the diamonds. You should also remember that when you crash a rainbow it shoots slightly upwards before falling. This means you can plant a rainbow below an enemy on a platform, crash it and get the little critter.

I am quite good at this but if you want to watch an expert, just go to the link below.

Anyone else having issues with Rainbow Island saving High Scores?  My high scores are working on all of my other MAME roms, but this ones not creating the file in my hiscores folder for some reason.  I can take it to the forums if I need to, just figured I'd see if everyone is in the same boat or if it's something on my end.

Not sure I've got a High score yet to check :) 

Do you have more that one ini file? Perhaps the plugin for hiscore is not set in the Horizont.ini if you have that.

That could be.  I'll check that out when I get home.  Thanks @gigapig!

My highscores are saved but then again I'm using Arcade64.exe instead of the regular mame.exe.
