Clik Clak
Platform: DOS
Year: 1992
Developer: Idea

Clik Clak is a puzzle game where your job is to install clocks into 12 world monuments. You are given gear wheels at random sizes and must insert them onto pegs in order to connect the red wheels already fixed. At the same time, the engine is heating and two pests hop around unscrewing the pegs and rusting the wheels. You have a limited supply of shots to chase away the pests, bombs to remove misplaced wheels, and oil to derust. Bonus coins can be won to stock up the supply, but points are deducted for unconnected wheels. Other problems have to be solved by hurrying.

The game is humorous and cute, especially after completing a level, when an animated photo of the improved world monument is shown.

Win ammo, bombs and oil!


The pop music and piano cues are bouncy and, in comparison to other platforms, fuller in sound, yet also more shy than driving. The sound effects are played on the PC Speaker and extra annoying in DOSBox, but can turned off through the command line (as can the music).

Some of the songs are also used in the Amiga and Commodore 64 versions, whereas some have been replaced by others. The titles are unofficial and numbered uniquely among the three versions. The in-game and progress song are changed every level, in the same order as in the table below. It is unknown which platform's music was done first.

To the bonus round, the completion photo and the ending, the in-game song continues.


All songs were recorded from a Pentium 60 MHz with a Sound Blaster 16. The game was forced into EGA mode, since in VGA mode on that machine, screen changes audibly delay the music. The progress jingles were renamed to play in-game, as the progress screen exits way too fast.
