Description of Qix
One of Taito's best known games, Qix is a great PC port of the hit arcade title that sparked numerous clones.
Like all other great arcade classics, the gameplay is simple, but highly original and addictive. Your goal is use a marker to separate the screen into different portions, thereby "claiming" the space. In the meantime, you must avoid electronic creatures called qix, sparx, and others that randomly appear to destroy your marker (by touching either incomplete lines or the marker itself).
Mindless, yet very addictive, Qix is a must-have for every arcade fan, and a great game to relax with from more serious action fare.

My first QIX game was for the Nintendo Entertainment System. I was quickly addicted! I got later versions for Sega Genesis, Playstation, and Gameboy Color. I have been a fan of this awesome series of games for over 35 years.
If you want a game that is simple to play, but can get really intricate during play, this is an excellent choice.
Suggestion as you Play: try creating an intricate maze for the QIX to navigate. The smaller the area you trap it in, the more percentage of the field you can claim in each level. I have been able to claim as much as 99% on my Gameboy version. That's really hard to do on a small screened device like that one. The points are way better, though.

Still playable. Even the oldest one "styx" is fun to play today.
