  • Summary: Klax - The concept is simple, but are you up to the test?? Colored tiles tumble down a conveyor belt, as you wait at the bottom. Catch them and arrange them as instructed: horizontally, vertically, diagonally - (three in a row is a "klax") - until you complete your mission and move on. As the pace quickens, you'll need fast reflexes to stay ahead of the cascading tiles and finish the many levels! Marble Madness - A true arcade classic! Guide your marble through various courses to the goal. Avoid the marble munchers, the evil steelie marble, the acid pools, the marble-sucking vacuum, and other hazards along the way to the finish line! Mazes, ice patches, funnels, and catapults are just the beginning! Try to keep from "losing your marbles" as you race against time and the elements in this all-time, all-ages romp. Expand

  1. Marble Madness is literally half the game it once was, but Klax makes this two-pack worth the price of admission.
  2. I find it very strange that one game is so good and the other one so bad. Perhaps the title of this duo should have been re-titled Jekyll and Hyde. It's like the developers just gave up on Marble Madness halfway through the development process.

    I've never seen a port of Marble Madness as awful as this GBA game -- and I've actually owned the terrible Apple IIGS version, and reviewed the glitchy Game Boy Color game in year's past.

    Klax rocks, as it always does. It's the reason I bought the cart, so i'm not *too* upset. But Marble Madness may as well not be there. I wish they had paired Klax with something worthwhile. Collapse
