I don’t know much about the history of Klax other than it appears on Midway Arcade Treasures on Xbox. I played it once or twice on that disk but never got into it much. Keep in mind I am not the world’s biggest Tetris addict or anything, and I would consider this in that line of games. But it’s pretty awesome! It seems that the music is off by default, but if you pause the game and turn it on, it’s the best part of the game!
In the game there is a conveyer belt bringing blocks down of varying colors which you catch on a paddle or some kind of platform. Then you drop them into your container trying to make sets of 3 with the same color. At first it’s super slow and easy, but on harder settings there are more colors than you can handle, and it’s fast. Good brain burner!
