I got a different bonus point by:

Hitting the rainbow colors in order. I actually didn't notice the "in any order" in the instructions until I ran the sequence and then realized I'd gotten a bonus. I don't remember what sequence I used, but I did use negative numbers to do it.

Thanks for the hint. It’s a very nice challenge!

Note that it only works if you …

… haven’t previously completed the rainbow challenge. If you have, your solution isn’t acknowledged at all, and you don’t get a bonus point. I think this should be considered a bug. (I’ve only tested this in version 1 of the game, though, so it might be fixed in version 2.)

(Author update here: I had Huftis send me the sequence he used to produce this bug, and I confirmed it in the Comp release of JA. I couldn't track down exactly what part of the code caused the bug, but other sequences I tried that accomplish the same overall goal don't produce the bug. So the problem is something specific having to do with Huftis's sequence. Huftis's sequence doesn't produce the bug in Release 2, though, so I'm cautiously optimistic that the bug doesn't appear in any form in Release 2. Author out.)
