Columns III: Revenge of Columns, known as Columns III: Taiketsu! Columns World (コラムスIII 対決!コラムスワールド) in Japan, is an entry in the Columns series of puzzle games developed by Sega in 1993 for the Sega Mega Drive. The game was only released in Japan and the US, with VIC Tokai publishing it in the US (consequently, the incorrect myth that VIC Tokai also developed the game is very widespread). The game has been brought to the Wii's Virtual Console service.

The 5-players multiplayer is supported with Team Player peripheral that has to be inserted into Port 2 of the Sega Mega Drive. Game will not recognise controllers if it's inserted into Port 1.

A Game Gear version was shown at Winter CES 1994, but was never released.[17]

Gameplay

Columns III adds several new gameplay features, including new puzzle modes and up to five simultaneous players. It re-introduces the "Crush Bar" from Columns II, a competitive-play gambit which is now a staple feature of the Columns series appearing in every game since (each time with a different name). But this time around the players are able to do "Crush Bar" attacks anytime they want instead of having the game do that immediately.

Columns III removes the single-player solo mode and brings the focus to competitive play. It's the first Columns game where the player can play competitively against CPU opponents in a single-player campaign. Like with Columns, the D-Pad moves blocks and B cycles the jewels. Each player now has a meter under the "next block" bar that counts up from 0 to 30 each time a player removes jewels. Once it goes over 10, the player can hit A or C to "crush" whichever jewels are currently falling from the opponent's board, removing them and adding a row of bricks to the bottom of their field called the "Crush Bar." This will also the player's own Crush Bar. In multiplayer games with 3 or more players, A and C decide which opponent to crush (to the left or to the right, respectively).

After doing several chains in a row a player will get a block containing a glowing jewel, called a Flashing Stone. It must be removed before it stops glowing to do one a random effect on other competitors for a short period of time, such as making their jewels black and white (impairing visibility), flipping the game board upside down, or making them unable to cycle jewels. Most of these are ineffective against CPU players.

A special type of block appears after every 20 removed lines of jewels called a Magic Stone which takes the form of two triangular jewels with a square jewel in between. If the player places the block with the upward pointing triangle touching the jewels on the board, their opponent will be crushed. If they place it with the downward pointing triangle touching, their own Crush Bar will go down. If they place it with the square touching, all jewels on their board of the color of the jewel that is touched will be removed from the board (though no crush points will be awarded for consequential clears).

Outside of the single-player campaign, once the field gets filled with considerable amount of jewels, the game sometimes turn one of the jewels in the bottom rows into a Super Flashing Stone, such a situation being somewhat similar to Flash Columns. Removing it causes a powerful effect, such as removing all jewels on player's field or disabling Magic and Flashing Stones for the opponent for the rest of the match.

The Japanese version of Columns III also includes a 2-on-2 multiplayer mode. It's similar to a 1-on-1 match with the third and the fourth players playing the supportive role, doing Rock-Paper-Scrissor matches to win boosts for their partner.
