Arya is a puzzle game, inspired by the classic SEGA title “Columns”. A game from Brazil written completely in C language, with all sources available.

The goal is to remove pieces by putting at least 3 blocks of the same color together. This is allowed whether it’s vertically, horizontally or even diagonally. The number of pieces removed are called a “Hit”, like 3x Hit, 4x Hit and so on. When the pieces disappear the ones above fall, making it possible to make more Hits. Each of these rounds are called “Combo”.

After a certain number of hits, the game takes you to a new level with increased speed. When the blocks reach the top, the game is over. Try again.

Play this colorful game either with keyboard or joystick in port one. All sources are available at
