    ColumnsDS is a recreation of the Columns game from ages ago. It's still an alpha though, so it's incomplete and there'll probably be bugs. Although it doesn't look like it was designed in Paint in two seconds, mind you. Oh, how to play, you ask? It's pretty simple, just match up 3 gems either horizontally, vertically or diagonally.

    Columns, awesome. Used to play that all the time on the Mega Drive, even maxed out all the counters in one game. I'll have to try this later when I have some time to spare.

    Uploaded a new version dev201007181021;

    * Added a splash screen
    * Added an icon (transparency broken though)
    * Rewrote the match detection, which should allow for things such as matching more than one set with a common gem
    * Added some more music

    EDIT:

    Uploaded a new version dev201007182242;

    * When you lose, the game ends with an animation instead of continually creating a new set of gems above the ones on top
    * Attempted to fix a sprite corruption issue
