Sega Saturn - Released - October 27, 1995

The object of this head-to-head puzzle game is to clear your grid of falling patterns called puyos by forming chains of four or more same-colored puyos in a straight line or one of several geometric patterns. What makes this a challenging two-player contest is the fact that when you clear a chain of puyos from your grid, it drops a random piece of filler onto your opponent's grid. The more puyos you clear, the more you fill your opponent's grid, and if you can clutter up his grid enough to fill it to the top, you've won the game.

After the highly acclaimed success of its predecessor, Compile took a slightly more retro approach, so players had a more original feel to the game over that of Tsu. The name of Puyo Puyo SUN comes from a Japanese pun on san, and also indicates a new Puyo brought into the game. As Sun Puyo were used in this game, and the game itself is not only set on a tropical beach, but is the third in the series (san (三?) is the Japanese word for the...

Puyo Puyo Sun: Ketteiban

Sony Playstation - Released - November 27, 1997

This game is a Japan-only port of the third game in the Puyo Puyo series originally made for the Arcades by Sega. The name of Puyo Puyo Sun comes from a Japanese pun on "san", and also indicates a new Ojama brought into the game. As Sun Puyos were used in this game, and the game itself is not only set on a tropical beach, but is the third in the series (三, "san" is the Japanese word for the number 3), the name suited the game. Just like the predecessors, Puyos fall from the top of the screen in pairs, can be moved left and right, and can be rotated clockwise and anti-clockwise by 90°....

This game includes a story mode, in which Arle (the main character) fights against computer enemies and a vs player mode.

This game was released only in Japan. It is the fourth game in the Puyo Puyo series and the last set during the Madou-era in the main series.

The gameplay in is similar to that of Puyo Puyo 2, but adds super attacks. Clearing chains now builds up a "charge meter" which allows players to use them.
