Personal review

Very good puzzle game. Similar in concept and obviously inspired from Tetris. The concept of placing blocks into lines or diagonals works very well and nearly reaches the addictiveness of Tetris. A good choice for a handheld game and one of the best games for the Atari Lynx.

Official description

Get set for Arcade Action in living color. In Klax, capture the colored tiles and flip them into stack. Create a Klax by matching 3 or more colored tiles. The pace quickens ... you've got to move fast but beware, once you start, you'll never want to stop.
