Might be, but what I see is that klickety doesn't have a pleasant UI like
ksame. Might have a more "standard" look, but for example without
increasing the size of the blocks, it is very hard to play. And even after
that it is disturbing (for me) that the blocks are so close together.

The last real commit to klickety was done in 2004.07.05 by its maintainer
and for ksame it was on 2005.03.19 by Albert Astal Cid. Ok, it doesn't
mean it's maintained, but as it seems klickety isn't maintained that much
as well. http://klickety.sourceforge.net/index.php?view=program talks
about a version from KDE 3.2.

Sure, but in this case I don't see any advantage if klickety over ksame,
this is why I complain.
