The Tengen version of Klax (クラックス) is a port of the 1990 arcade game to the Sega Mega Drive. This is the version that was released overseas - Namco produced an alternate Mega Drive version for Japan.

Gameplay

Basically, you have to clear the blocks while the fall which is called a Klax when you line up three of the same color vertically, horizontally or diagonally. The main difference from most puzzle games is that you can see more than one of them as they fall end over end down a slope. They must be caught by a platform controlled by the player, and then placed where the player wants by pressing A, B or C, and to speed up their descent the player presses Down. The player can only let three fall without being caught before they lose. This is kept track of by the drop meter.

Oddly enough there is no music, only the sound effects of the blocks moving and falling.

To complete a wave you must get a certain amount of Klax's or meet a certain criteria.

Wave 1 - Get 3 Klax
Wave 2 - Get 5 Klax
Wave 3 - Get 3 diagonals

A four in a row KLAX counts as 2 KLAX
