Taisen Puzzle-Dama (対戦ぱずるだま Taisen Pazuru-Dama?, lit. "Battle Puzzle Ball") is a puzzle video game and the first video game in the Taisen Puzzle-Dama series. It was released in July 1994 by Konami in Japanese arcades. It was released in Europe as Crazy Cross.
The Gameplay is similar to Puyo Puyo. The player must beat the opponent by creating combos, which involve matching three balls or more of the same color simultaneously. Doing so will fill the opponent's side with colored blocks from either the top or bottom. The blocks contain a certain ball color, depending on the color of the block. When blocks are matched, the color ball is released. The side that exceeds the top first loses. Score is also added for both sides, but the opponent's score doesn't affect the rounds in any way.
