Overview:

Take a journey back in time to the ancient civilization of Phoenicia. Here, you will learn to play a game that originated among the Phoenician merchants. A game called Columns. Multicolored gems fall from the top of the screen into a pit. Rearrange the order of the jewels as they fall to line up three or more of the same color horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. When you do, those gems will disappear. Careful planning allows you to form combos and shatter multiple gems at once. Keep an eye open for Magic Jewels, which will destroy all gems of a certain color. Try the original mode, or the speed-based Flash Columns.
