CD-ROM Today, July 1995

If you're a puzzle fan, look no further than Spectrum HoloByte's ClockWerx. This unique brainteaser is a 100-level game that would challenge even the logic of Spock. In addition to acute deductive powere, you'll need a quick wrist and an empeccable sense of timing.

"In ClockWerx, you control a clock hand that swings from dot to dot on an electronic grid. Using a mouse or keyboard, you pivot, bounce, flip, and reverse your clock hand from one dot to the next, steering it towards a flashing 'goal' dot.

"...As you progrss beyond the first ten or so boards, however, you are gradually introduced to the game designers' cunning wiles. New obstacles and treacherous moving objects suddenly alter the complexion of the game. You soon find that you're no longer lolling casually across the screen with your gold clock hand - instead, you're nervously acoiding enemy clock hands...The accompanying tick-tock sound effects add to the game's feeling of suspense.

"The CD-ROM copies all files to your hard drive (less than 5MB), so you don't need the disc after installation. But you will need the manual to get by Holobyte's copy-protection scheme, which requires you to type in a phrase from the manual. This may be an effective copyright protection scheme for the publisher, but it's an annoyance for the user to have to always refer back to the manual.

"If you remember the addictive quality of Tetris, you'll have a sense of ClockWerx's appeal. Other than game style, the biggest differences between ClockWerx and Tetris are the former's greater challenge and its potentially heftier level of frustration. All in all, this game is torturously good fun."
