Columns is a game in where you have to remove stones and get points so, in this way, you could beat the stone removing world record. It is based on the original by SEGA, a game that went down in history in the 90's; even more, nowadays they continue releasing new versions with new options but with the original idea: to remove gems in blocks of three or more.
There are two ways of playing Columns. The first is the classic one -it?s very easy-. You have to remove the maximum number of stones before the time ends or the stones fill the screen and you die crushed.
The second one is by levels: Once upon a time there was a little princess that was safe placed at the top of a pyramid so that a good looking blue prince saved it and he took it in marriage.
As in pretty traditional stories, we have to rescue the imprisoned princess in the pyramid. In order to arrive at her we must go advancing rooms. Each room is a level and the more close we are the more difficult will be to pass because the stones we have to retire will be more and more, they will fall faster and the time will be less and less.
But not all are bad news, whenever we complete a room we get 10 extra second and whenever we remove stones in amount greater than three, we also get more extra time. Will we rescue to the little princess? Take into account that this is a race against the clock, so is necessary to work quickly or the time finishes and you will end up resting underneath a stone tower, as many others candidates to rescue princess Genara do.
Whenever you surpass a level you will see a map pointing where you are, then you will enter in a clear room in witch you will have to retire more stones. Thus until the end, until you rescue to the princess. Good luck.
