Chasing Rainbows was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2011.
Having already split up, the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond are chasing a Heyvaaley through the streets of San Francisco in 1985 towards Rory Williams. The Heyvaalay is an intelligent life form which, appearing as a rainbow, bounces down the street making a trail of holes in the road before disappearing into an arcade.
Rory follows, armed with a solar panel, with the intention of catching it in the battery but the Heyvaaley is intelligent. It splits into two separate arcade machines, then emerges from the machines like a giant character from an old gaming console. The arcade machines are like feet as it bursts out of the arcade and down the street.
Rory is an experienced games player having played the older games on his phone. He realises the creature is following the same pattern of repeated behaviour as the old games. Anticipating the creature's moves, Rory strikes its centre on with a metal pole. This allows the Doctor to collect the pieces and trap them in the solar panels so the Heyvaaley can be taken back to its own dimension.
