KLAX is my favorite game ever, I remember being trapped in Las Vegas and playing KLAX all night long on a lynx...

Game Impressions

I can't believe I missed this. I loved Klax.

For those considering this, a couple of comments:

1) You can listen to your own music with in game sound effects.

2) It saves your game state when you exit.

3) It doesn't connect to an online system like openFeint, but it has a bunch of achievements for you to earn.

4) Its the first game I have seen with both an option to post to facebook, and an option to turn off asking you if you want to post to facebook.

5) Controls are very well implemented.

6) It plays almost exactly like Klax on the Lynx, which means that it is great fun.

Highly recommended.

Michael

I really wanted to like this, but I feel that having to pull down makes more sense for speeding up the conveyer belt, and the button for that is better suited for flipping a piece back (kind of like 'drop' and 'hold' in Tetris).
