ColumnsDS is a recreation of the Columns game, a match-three puzzle game created by Jay Geertsen in 1990.
The goal is to align the matching blocks in sets of three or more blocks to get the highest score possible.
Match up 3 gems either horizontally, vertically or diagonally. Beware of the blocks reach the top of the screen because if they do the game is over.
There are several music tracks that you can choose to listen during the game.
Left/Right - Move gems
Down - Drop gems faster
A - Change position of the gems
Y - Change music
Start - Start, Restart
Tested on DSTT/TTDS (firmware 1.17).
