When four beans of the same color are matched together, they disappear from the grid, causing any beans on top to drop below. These beans can then automatically trigger other matches, resulting in chain combos of multiple matches in sequence. By successfully performing chain combos, players can send grey “refugee beans” to hinder their opponent. These beans cannot be matched normally and can only be removed by completing a match adjacent to them. A player loses when beans spill over the top of the board, leaving the player unable to add any more beans. The Game Gear and Master System versions feature an additional mode, Puzzle Mode, in which players must attempt to clear predetermined sets of beans.
