Looking for Columns clones/derivatives

Are there any besides Time Lock?
http://hol.abime.net/3938

Even if they are PD/freeware/on Aminet and not yet referenced on HOL

Thinking of making a quickmatch if there are enough of them.
Thank you in advance

Timelock is definitely the closest, and it's sad that there isn't anything else, or better :/

I did not even think to check that

Anyway, Time Lock has the quickmatch set now.


I wonder if Dr Mario and Znyk should not be either moved to the Super Puyo Puyo quickmatch or even have a Dr Mario quickmatch.

I believed that the column part in Columns is quite a defining aspect (not simply stack and match).

So another question to the experts around, do you know of other Dr Mario clones?

Coloris
http://hol.abime.net/3064

This has some interesting history which i cant completely recall however.

Point was that this is a Finnish company called avesoft, meant for commercial release, but i think it was Sega that was one way or other threatening them, and hence in the end it became half commercial (depends how you look at it).

Avesoft was Finlands most famous (and largest i guess too) PD disks seller and then they had some of these special disks they were selling for higher price.
At time i remember, usual PD disk price was for 9.90 Finn Marks (Roughly 1.7 Eur nowadays without inflation) and then they had these special products priced 39 Finn Marks (roughly 6.5 Euros).
One of these special priced products was their Coloris game.

they also had some game which name i cant remember which was one of those Operation Wolf style shooting games, except it was made with Amiga Basic, and although they made it as commercial game, no one was interested in publishing it.

But some company had commented to them that although it was the best game they have ever seen done with Amiga Basic, it still isnt good enough.

Edit:
Found the Amiga basic game: Bloody Afternoon

Joy. I just set up my Amiga 4000 so I could see this again. I don't think I ever got version 2.0 released to the public, but it's got much improved (for that era) graphics.
