    I bet you have never played any game like this one.

    It just doesn’t matter how old this game is, the fun factor never leaves this game. I just turned the game on to remind myself about the game I played so long ago. The tension/concentration resumed the second I turned it... Read Full Review

    A fun, simple travel game.

    Qix is old school gaming at its finest. It doesn't rely on flashy graphics, story or complex sound effects. It gets by entirely on its gameplay. Although simple, Qix is a very engaging game. You need to move your dot ... Read Full Review

    Qix

    This game was pretty awesome for its time and it was also very simple but viciously entertaining. It consisted of locking a trail of lines that moved inside a box. You had a certain amount of time to lock it in by adding... Read Full Review

    Just a great version of an Old School Favorite!

    Once in a while somebody does it right... and that is what happened here. I loved this game when I was a kid... yes that is several years ago. It was so simplistic for it's day and age... with Donkey Kong and Tempest... Read Full Review

    A well-done port that comes very close to the real deal in the arcade.

    Simplistic gameplay, a simple goal, and an erratic enemy combine to make a fun, addictive game that's not like anything else out there. In Qix, the name of the game is acquiring territory, using lines drawn by a cursor.... Read Full Review
