  1. From its simple gameplay, addictive replay structure and bright graphics right down to its choice of male or female characters, Columns Crown is a superb puzzle package that just about everyone can fall in love with.

    The addition of an extended two-player mode and a vast assortment of collectible enemy-trouncing Power Jewels give it a big bonus edge.

    The unique presentation is a crowning achievement for puzzle games. [Mar 2002, p.136]
  4. The GBA’s Achilles heel once again rears its ugly head, unless playing under bright light identifying the colour of the gems is a nightmare, as not only can you not determine the colour but the sprites are too small as well.
  5. Although it's not as energetic or complex as many modern-day puzzle games, it doesn't really disappoint in any specific area either.

    The Columns formula really isn't that fun. [Mar 2002, p.146]

It has alot of extra features that add to the replay value of it, not to mention 2 player with either 1 or 2 cartridges. The gems are kind of small, but with a light (or the new GBA SP), they aren't a problem at all. The difficulty level isn't something that your cat could do either, which is good for those who like a challenge. Collapse
