gemdropx is an interesting one-player puzzle game for X-Window. It is
a direct port of Gem Drop, an Atari 8-bit game written in Action! (a
very fast C- and Pascal-like compiled language for the Atari). The
concept of the game Gem Drop is based on an arcade game for the NeoGeo
system called "Magical Drop III" by SNK.
If you’re familiar with games like Jewels, Klax, Bust-A-Move or Tetris,
this game is similar to them all. I consider it closest to Klax.
