Qix Review

Qix (pronounced kicks) on the Game Boy is a simple game. That is not a bad thing though since it is also really fun. Read on after the break to read my thoughts on the game 
The goal of Qix is to take land in the square by drawing Stix without being touched by the Qix.
As the description goes: 

"Twisting pix with clever tricks – that's the challenge of Qix.

Your objective is to claim as much of the screen as possible. However, Qix will try to disrupt you at every turn by rotating, stretching, shortening and changing directions. It's sneaky, it's snaky, it's an unpredictable energy field. "

What makes the game both challenging and enjoyable is deciding what speed you will use when drawing Stix. You can either go fast or slow. Going slow puts you up for a higher risk of an attack by Qix but you earn more points. When you are touched by the Qix you lose a life.The simplicity is what makes the game so great. I highly recommend you pick it up on the 3DS e-shop virtual console for a nice $2.99

My Rating: 7/10
