Interview: Mizuki Hosoyamada on Puyo Puyo Puzzle Pop & Working with Apple







Quote
What elements from past Puyo Puyo games were the team most excited about bringing back in Puyo Puyo Puzzle Pop?
Hosoyomada-san: Particularly given how Puyo Puyo! 15th Anniversary and Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary didn’t have a worldwide release, for a long period we’ve had fans around the world clamoring for a game available in various languages. Sure Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 & 2 and Puyo Puyo Champions were released globally, but their core concepts differed to regular games, so we had to leave out quite a few features.
This time around we’ve taken on the challenge of introducing and mixing up rules and modes that were only used previously in releases exclusive to Japan. For example, co-op mode is back, but not in the same form-we’ve switched things up. There’s a bunch of other stuff, too. We’ve really been trying our hardest to make the ultimate new Puyo Puyo game, so hopefully lots of people around the world enjoy it.

SEGA has been an avid supporter of Apple Arcade with a number of titles, including Puyo Puyo Puzzle Pop. Did the development team face any challenges while making the game work on a wide range of Apple Arcade-supported devices?
Hosoyomada-san: Everything went pretty smoothly. We’ve always brought the Puyo Puyo series to various platforms, so, for example, we already had keyboard controls covered. And unlike the mobile-exclusive or console-exclusive games we’ve released in the past, we only had to adjust the basics for Apple’s devices and not several others at the same time. This, plus the fact that throughout the process Apple provided ...

The Original Version Of Columns For The HP-UX Has Just Been Found







Quote
Most people will probably know of Columns from Sega's versions of the game — which have since been reissued across various compilations and mini consoles — but the title actually has an interesting history that predates those releases.
It was originally designed by Jay Geersten for the HP-UX operating system while working at Hewlett Packard in 1989, who later gave his source code to various other developers to produce additional versions for MS-DOS, Atari ST, Macintosh, and Windows 3.x.
In the past, Geersten's original HP-UX version of the game was considered to be lost media, but yesterday, the video game collector @TrevgauntletNeu announced that they had found the original title and had managed to get it working in MAME. They've since shared ...

Sega Tetris Is Back Online!





https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=quHYqJlp0Eg

Quote
In addition to the game being brought back online, I actually made my own little contribution to this project by translating all of the online menus, messages, and dialogs into English. This should make it much easier for everyone to get online and playing, as previously it was bit overwhelming to navigate for anyone that doesn’t read Japanese.
A few things to note about this game: Firstly, in order to play online you’ll need the patched version of the game which is available from the Downloads page. This unfortunately means original discs will not work.
Secondly, your account on the server is linked to the Login ID that you set up in the Dreamcast’s ISP settings. If you set this up as “dream”, which most DreamPi users have, you’ll need to change it to something else. Otherwise you’ll be ...

Imagine if this take on Tetris was the crossover with Puyo Puyo.

Dreamcast's Puyo Puyo~n (Puyo Puyo 4) was the first Puyo Puyo game to be released after Sega became the owner of the IP.
So technically it could happen! If only ...

Well, I doubt they would've gone with the Tetris monkey for a Dreamcast Puyo Puyo X Tetris game.

One monkey character wouldn't be a problem. They'll just have to redesign the monkey to Puyo Style.

Sonic-ifying SWGA Characters Fan Art by The Pink Galaxy

Sonic-ifying guest characters is a really funny, underused idea and I wish it was done more often
