This is a rather solid Columns clone featuring the classic Columns gameplay elements (connect the same letter horizontally, vertically or diagonally) with an interesting addition of spelling the word "EXPLODE" for extra score. The game features nice graphics, including a cool scrolling background. Also, there are two music tracks and two sound effects that accompany the game. With 3 game modes, cool score bar and a high score table, this game fully deserves its score, although it fails a bit in programming and graphical design. Some notable space for improvement is visible there.
The second download is the no sound version (1.3 MB).
