Flyer Title Year Description Screenshot
BlockHoleFlyer.jpg Block Hole / Quarth 1989 Kind of a "reverse Tetris puzzle/shmup hybrid", where you shot blocks to fill the lines that descend from the top. Your objective is to fill the lines to create quadrilaterals, which then disappear. BlockHoleScreenshot.png
BlockOut arcade flyer.png BlockOut 1989 Think Tetris is too easy? Try this tridimensional Tetris clone from Poland. You see the well from the top and the pieces can be rotated to any direction, which increases the complexity immensely!
Also on the Genesis and various home computers. Later got a free sequel for Windows and Linux.

ColumnsFlyer.jpg Colums (series) 1990 Classic puzzle, you must shift the colors of the columns dropping from the top of the screen to stack jewels and form lines of three or more of the same color to make them disappear. Has ports on practically every Sega console. ColumnsScreenshot.png
KlaxFlyer.jpg Klax 1989 You control a paddle, and must catch the colored tiles that slide down the ramp to stack them. Don't let the tiles fall down the pit! KlaxScreenshot.png
MagicalDrop3Flyer.jpg Magical Drop III 1997 Another classic, drag and drop the colored drops, match them and create chains to mess up your adversary. Play the Japanese version, they butchered the game in the international versions.

You can play the early games, but the AI is all sorts of bullshit. Plus it has much less characters.

PuyoPuyoFlyer.jpg Puyo Puyo (series) 1992 Rotate around these drops and create chains of four or more of the same color to make them disappear. Another timeless classic, with ports on too many platforms to list. PuyoPuyoScreenshot.png
PuzzleBobbleFlyer.jpg Puzzle Bobble (series) 1994 Cool puzzle with the hero from Bubble Bobble, rotate your shooter and shoot the colored bubbles to line them with the ones descending to blow them up. Has a lot of shameless rip-offs on iOS and Android. PuzzleBobbleScreenshot.png
RiskyChallengeFlyer.jpg Risky Challenge / Gussun Oyoyo 1993 Interesting spin on Tetris, you must rotate the blocks to create a way for the character to reach the door, as well as protecting him from harm. RiskyChallengeScreenshot.png
SuperPuzzleFighterFlyer.jpg Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo 1996 Cool puzzle with SD versions of Street Fighter and Darkstalkers characters, you must create colored gems by combining them. Create gems as big as possible, them blow them up with the bomb pieces to send lots of gems to your adversary.

No, there isn't a Super Puzzle Fighter 1, that was just Capcom indulging in some self-parody.
