Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Oi, Columns is hardly casual, you philistines. You must be thinking of Bejeweled and all it's mobile clones. THAT is casual. Columns is one third of the Holy Puzzle Trinity along with Tetris and Puyo Puyo. You can spend decades working towards mastery. Speaking of Puyo Puyo, I very much recommend the Steam version of Sega Classics Collection, since you can mod the Americanized "Mean Bean Machine" bastardization back to how it's meant to be played.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Easy to play/use
