* AnnouncerChatter

to:

* %%* AnnouncerChatter



* CatchPhrase - Many, given by the voice synthesizer.
* CriticalExistenceFailure - All is well until you drop that last tile and then: "Awwwwwww"
* DifficultyByAcceleration - As the stage continues, the pieces become more dense requiring faster reaction time. Sometimes, you also receive that wonderful hint: "This one is fast!"

* HoldTheLine - The survival waves, where you must catch a certain number of tiles to win.
* MatchThreeGame
* NoPlotNoProblem
* NothingIsScarier - With regard to the arcade version's complete lack of soundtrack. Some nice, soothing background Muzak would be well placed, but no, all you get is the relentless ''clack, clack, clack''...

* PaletteSwap - All the tiles, except in the Game Boy version.
* PathOfMostResistance - While you get a nice bonus, extra leeway on dropping tiles, ''and'' you skip the intervening levels when you warp, you can get a far higher score playing through every single level.
* ScoringPoints
* SoundCodedForYourConvenience - In the arcade version, each colour of tile produced their own unique sound effect as they tumbled. Also, there are three different versions of the four-note jingle that plays when you score a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal KLAX.
* SpeedMetal - The NES port's soundtrack by BügSük (Lx Rudis and Dave O'Riva).
* AWinnerIsYou - A little congratulatory sentence [[spoiler: and a bonus 1,000,000 points]].

1989 game built by {{Atari}}. Coloured tiles tumble down from above; you have to catch them on your paddle and drop them into a 5×5 bin. They vanish when you line up three or more of the same colour, a feat referred to as a "Klax". The paddle can hold up to five tiles.
