It is the nineties, and there is time for… KLAX.
THE TIC-TAC TILE GAME
It’s here! The newest most addictive craze from California. Already a runaway success in the coin op arcades, Klax is now available for your computer!
It’s simple in concept and easy to play. Catch the coloured tiles with the paddle and flip them into the bins to make the same coloured stacks, diagonals and rows of three. Sounds easy? It is! The hard part is pulling yourself away from the game.

- 99 waves of sheer fun!
- The fastest selling coin op ever!
- Addictive and challenging.
- Make multiple klaxes for massive points!
- Challenge your friends in head-to-head action.
Crash Issue 89 review, courtesy of spectrumcomputing.co.uk
My ST owning neighbour is currently flurting to me his copy of KLAX, and shouting out how good it is! When suddenly, the postie arrives with my sack of mail-and what’s this? Why the SAM Coupe version! Yeeesss… Imagine if you would, a long conveyor belt, in some deserted forest(or anywhere else!). Add a widget to put a load of different coloured blocks into lines(or KLAXES!), and you get a recipe for an addictive puzzle game!
You have to place these blocks, so they land on the Dropmeter, in lines of 3 to 5! These disappear, till you get to the desired Klax count, then on to another well drawn ST screen! Actually, this got me in a bit of trouble, as I was meant to be revising! Ah, well! Hmmm, looks like Enigma Variations have done it again! A brillantly original and addictive puzzle game, which moves at a fair whack, and will leave my nights on the computer sleepless! (There go my Friday nights out…!).
