Clik Clak (C64)
Clik Clak is an action 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 all red wheels already fixed. At the same time, the engine is heating and two poffins hop around unscrewing pegs and rusting wheels. You have a limited supply of shots to chase away the pests, bombs to remove misplaced wheels, and oil to derust. Coins can be earned to stock up your supply, but points are deducted for unconnected wheels. After completing a level, an animated photo of the improved monument is shown.
The pop music and piano cues are driving, bouncy and well-suited to the warm, custom-made instrument sounds. The in-game songs have been limited to 2 voices, while the 3rd is used for sound effects.
Some songs are also used in the Amiga and DOS versions, whereas some have been replaced by others. All titles are unofficial and numbered uniquely among the three versions. The in-game song changes every level, in the same order as in the table below. Which platform's music was done first is unknown.
Over the map, the progress song is chosen at random. Over the completion photo, Progress 2 plays. Over the ending, Intro 1.
All songs were recorded from a real C64C with an 8580 R5 4091, while the game was paused.

This game uses the computer's built-in SID chip. The music constantly toggles SID's filter, causing unpleasant clicks on the 6581 chip, but not on the 8580.
Unlike the other ports, an official NTSC release is not known.
