Columns (コラムス) is a puzzle game created by Jay Geertsen in 1989. The rights were sold to Sega in 1990, who brought the game to the Sega System C arcade board, with its subsequent success seeing the game released on a wide variety of platforms.

Telenet Japan produced a licensed port to the PC Engine in 1991, with subsequent ports to the PC-8801 and PC-9801 UV handled by SystemSoft.
