Game Description:Columns was originally a title called "Kalams," developed for Unix workstations. Producer Kazuo Wakihara (now at Sega Wow) and his team of three took the Unix title, added new rules involving magic stones and, in three months, created Columns. The game was apparently a big hit amongst office ladies of the time. Wakihara feels that the game can still be played lightly by anyone today. So what can Sega Ages add to a puzzle game to make it more suitable for today's masses? Polygons, of course! In Sega Ages 2500: Columns, you'll find polygons used for the title screen and all the gems. The use of 3D graphics doesn't really change the look of the game much; it looks as colorful and shiny as ever. You can actually select from two versions of the game board, including a new version that's easier on the eyes.
