Jewel­riss

Retro Gamer - - MINORITY REPORT: GAMATE -

■ De­vel­oper: BIT Cor­po­ra­tion ■ Year: 1991

Ob­vi­ously, any Game Boy wannabe worth its salt needs a block-sort­ing puz­zle game, and the Ga­mate has Jewel­riss, which is ba­si­cally just Col­umns, but with a lot of aes­thetic touches stolen from Dr Mario and Tetris. It does have one orig­i­nal touch, though: af­ter you’ve cleared 200 jew­els (in­cor­rectly re­ferred to in-game as ‘lines’), the game just abruptly ends. So there’s no pos­si­bil­ity of a marathon ses­sion. Strange.
