According to the Read Me:

Catch The Buzz is an arcade game that looks like Tetris but where the goal is entirely different: you must catch a little nasty moving beast called the Buzz."

In reality it's Tetris where you don't get any points for clearing lines. In the two "Training" modes you get points for each new piece that appears on screen. In the "Catch the Buzz" game you only get points when you trap the insect in a single square or clear the line with the insect in it.

Falling pieces can be controlled with the mouse, the numeric keypad, or the main keyboard (you can also switch control mid-game by pressing one of the keys or clicking the mouse). Insturctions are on the disk and in-game.

Game runs in black and white on monochrome Macs.

The game over sound when the pieces reach the top of the screen contains a word which may offend some people. ResEdit or similar could be used to replace this sound with a different one.

The application is on a Disk Copy 4.2 disk image (1.44MB) inside a StuffIt 3.5 archive.
