Columns 4: Evolution is a fan remake of unique Columns III - Revenge of Columns game from Sega Genesis console.
Player must change sequence of multicolor figures in column to make line of three or more figures of one color (horizontally, vertically or diagonally), which will disappear. You can move column left or right and change color position while column falling. Also there is various bonuses which give temporary (sometimes permanent) abilities to player. Player lose when his field will be filled faster than opponent's field, as in classic tetris.
Genre: puzzle, arcade, tetris
Game Engine: Construct Classic
What is planned:
Friends! Today I'm announcing a restarting of sequel of the Columns III game. From this moment our project named Columns 4: Evolution.
So, Scirra Construct was selected as the new game engine. This is an open source game construction tool.
Columns game series includes several puzzle arcades with the gameplay, similar to Tetris, in which players should make a line of one color. Gameplay is described in details on the promotional page Columns 4 (link posted below). And I wanted to do a remake, because since the last game of the series has been almost 20 years, but not many people know this game!
You can see some concept arts below:
At least, one version of our game must be released later this year. In our forum you can discuss the project, post new ideas and write about everything else associated with the Columns game series. We also have an English forum there, on Indie DB.
