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.

Music

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.

The music driver is RoMuzak V6.3. The looping tunes suffer under its most common bug, namely the first note sometimes being muted. The sound effect driver is The Sound FX Kit.

Some of the songs are also used in the Amiga and DOS versions, whereas some have been replaced by others.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

To the map, the progress song is chosen at random. To the completion photo, Progress 2 is played. To the ending, Intro 1 is played.

Recording

The music constantly toggles SID's filter, causing unpleasant clicks on the 6581 chip, but not on the 8580. The recordings were made from a real C64C with an 8580 R5 4091, while the game was paused.
