OverviewOverview

Puyo Puyo Champions (Puyo Puyo eSports in Japan) is the latest in a puzzle game series where you line up slime-like Puyo creatures who fall from the top of the screen. The trick is to rotate the groups of two, three, and four colours to line up with those already in play. When four or more line-up they connect and pop. You can achieve more points and bonuses by chaining colours together. Play is hindered when opponents send out nuisance Puyo that get in the way of lining up colours.
