Today in History: October 15th, 1993- Columns III Shines on Genesis

Triverse writes, "Sega was pretty much left out when it comes to well known puzzle games thanks to Nintendo locking up the rights to Tetris (even though for a bit it was available to Genesis gamers). Sega, and other companies, played puzzle roullette releasing all kinds of games in this genre, hoping something would take off and stick with fans. While not nearly as popular as Tetris, the Columns series did find a decent audience." (Retro)

Still one of my favorite puzzle games. Check the App Store and see that it's been ripped off a million times.

I was going to put some links to "similar" titles on Android/iOS but there were so many I just didn't bother. lol

I agree, it is quite a ripped off formula.

I had the Sega Genesis Triple Score game with Columns, Super Hang-on, & World Championship Soccer.

I wish they still made variety packs like that, or as much as they used to.
