Columns / Jewels A puzzle computer game, arcade game and console game with many similarities to Tetris. It was first created in 1989 by Jay Geertsen (not Geertson, as he is erroneously credited in the Windows port) of HP on the X Window System. Nathan Meyers ported it to DOS, Chris Christensen to Macintosh. John Rotenstein created an early Windows version based on Christensen's Macintosh port. Another early port is to Atari ST, for the high resolution monochrome monitor. In 1990 Jay Geertsen sold the rights to Sega, where it was ported to several Sega consoles. [source:wikipedia]
