ClockWerx (クロックワークス) is a puzzle game originally released for Windows PCs and Macintosh computers, before being ported to the Sega Saturn. It is presented by Alexey Pajitnov, the creator of Tetris, but he has nothing to do with this game's production.

This version was never released outside Japan (like the Super Famicom and PlayStation versions) and introduces clay animations (like the PlayStation version). A 3DO port was planned, but was cancelled due of the discontinuation of the system.


A man refuses to wake up and ignores the clock's ringing. Later it punishes him by sending the man to the ClockWork dimension.
