System Game Boy
Developer Nintendo, Taito
Genre Action / Puzzle

Portable remake of the 1981 Taito arcade game, converted by Nintendo.

You control a cursor that can trace lines across the play area. When you draw a line that joins with the edges of the play area or another line, the space fills in as a block. The aim is to fill in a percentage of the play area. However, also in the game area is the Qix, a moving radar that destroys you if it touches you or a line you are tracing. Small sparks also follow the lines and destroy you if it collides with your cursor.

You can also connect two copies of the game using the Game Boy Link Cable to play a 2-Player race to complete the puzzle.
