Qix is a fun and interesting arcade game that chares similarities to J-Ball. In this game you control a series of sticks and your aim is to capture at least 75% of the level. You must move your stick using the keyboard arrow keys and use the X and Z keys to draw two different types of shape. You must move quickly and avoid being hit by the central Qix object – if you are hit; your own stix is stunned for a brief moment.

Move quickly and try to build complete rectangles as quickly as possible to take control of the level playing area. Once you have reached 75% control, you move on to the next level and a new challenge. This classic game is so much fun and is easy to learn. If you enjoy Qix, be sure to try out J-Ball too!
