EXTREMELY buggy on SheepShaver running MacOS 9.0.4, although i am not sure whether it's the emulator/OS or the game itself is buggy,

bugs include
> Garbage puyos dropping in the middle of a chain, or even fail to drop, very annoying if you're making 4- and 5- chains
> It appears that you/computer can stay alive for a few more seconds even if the 3rd column is filled to the top (normal Puyo Puyo has it that you lose once the 3rd column reaches the top)
> puzzle mode - no playfield boarder appear anywhere , so the puyos appear floating in the middle of the background

Fine then. Anything dated AFTER DRMBM is a rip-off.

Which is ripping off the ORIGINAL game, probably illegally, from 1993: Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, on the Sega Mega Drive.

Thanks Bugman, I've been scouring the internet looking for a cheap copy of this for ages, but could only find PC versions for cheap, not Mac. It's actually Puyo Puyo, a Japanese game that Spectrum Holobyte licensed and slapped their own identity on. Looking forward to checking it out.
