Columns II or Columns II: The Voyage Through Time was the sequel to Columns and the preclude to Columns III. It featured the normal puzzle game play, but was only released in Japan as an Arcade machine. A semi-unofficial import for the Sega Saturn was published by SOJ and was released in 1997 as Sega Ages: Columns Arcade Collection.
The game differed slightly from the other two versions in that it included several sets of graphics. These graphics sets were Machine Theme, Pale Green Theme, and Classic Theme.
It is not clear as to why it was subtitled "The Voyage Through Time", other than the minor tile differences which seem to indicate future and past ages.
