A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Columns Clone is was a clone of the classic Genesis/Mega Drive game Columns, written in LÖVE. It isn't finished, but the basics of a game are still there.

There are three difficulty options, ranging from Easy (4 colors) to Hard (6 colors). It can get pretty challenging, but the interesting scoring system provides a lot of opportunities for big points.

The game will absolutely not run in modern LÖVE versions, and the fact it ran at all in its targeted version is something of a minor miracle. I do not know if I will ever update it -- probably not. Sorry.

The source is available in the Columns Clone GitHub repository.

Install instructions


  • Extract the archive to a folder of your choice and run Columns Clone.exe

Nice game, i really liked it, but can you update it to have full screen? Thank you

This game is really old and I'm surprised it's still working. I'll see if I can update it soon, but the framework is out of date so it might take a while
