Columns is a simple puzzle game where your goal is to clear the falling blocks by lining up 3 of the same color in a row. Blocks will fall in a column of 3 but the order of colors can be rotated vertically. Allowing your stack to reach the top results in a game over and just like in Tetris, the higher your level, the faster the blocks begin to fall.

This seemingly simple puzzle game actually requires a fair amount of strategy in the order they are placed in to recover from misplaced blocks. Easy to learn but difficult to master, this classic puzzle game is for anyone who enjoys other simple puzzle games such as Tetris, Yoshi or Dr. Mario.
