A sacred rainbow is shattered into seven {{Mineral MacGuffin}}s which, when collected, can grant a person one wish. With one of the crystals in possession, Visconti searches for the remaining six. Our hero [[TheHero Ardy Lightfoot]] and his RidiculouslyCuteCritter Pec find a tablet containing the history of the sacred rainbow. Afterwards, they set out on a quest to retrieve the pieces of the rainbow and must stop Visconti from his tyrannical reign. Though the game has a plot and cutscenes, there's no dialogue.

Eponymous hero Ardy Lightfoot and RidiculouslyCuteCritter Pec are on a quest to retrieve a set of [[MineralMacGuffin Mineral MacGuffins]] because... uh... well, we're not sure; though the game has a plot and cutscenes, there's no written dialogue, meaning it's easy to miss out on the plot. If Wikipedia is to believed, said [=MacGuffins=] are the shattered pieces of the sacred rainbow, and whoever obtains them gets one wish. It doesn't really matter, because who pays attention to the plot, anyway?

It's fairly standard platformer fare, but it's solid, well-made (if [[NintendoHard infuriatingly hard]]) stuff-- and the music is pretty cool, too.
