The controls are pretty much perfect and, unlike some of the other versions, they got the difficulty curve just right. The graphics are unspectacular but very faithful to the arcade game. In the audio department A8 Qix also replicates coin-op very closely too. My only real complaint about this version is that it’s quite slow to fill the boxes. Qix really is a fantastic game, a wonderfully original and incredibly addictive title that will keep you playing for many years to come!

Sans connaître de révolution, QIX sur Atari 8-bit doit malheureusement composer avec les limites du hardware, qui se traduisent par une lenteur lors du remplissage des zones qu'on ne retrouve pas sur les autres supports. Sans être extrêmement pénalisants, ces "temps de chargement" camouflés handicapent le rythme de parties qui reposaient beaucoup sur leur nervosité.

Coincé entre deux feux, vous essayez tant bien que mal de remplir les 75 % fatidiques qui donnent accès au tableau suivant. Un zeste de stratégie (il n'est pas interdit de piéger la bestiole dans un coin) et un sérieux coup d'œil sont requis pour jouer à Qix.
The Video Game Critic (Sep 17, 2007)
Pretty lame! The collision detection is also fishy at times. On the bright side, the controls are comfortable, since you can use any Atari joystick. There are several skills levels and an alternating two-player mode. It could have been better, but a second-rate Qix is better than no Qix at all.

„Qix“ ist ein sehr abstraktes Spiel. Sein Reiz besteht jedoch darin, daß der Spieler in seinem Vorgehen völlig frei ist und sich nicht auf vorgezeichnete Bahnen bewegt. Wer solche Spiele mag, wird sich mit „Qix“ bestimmt lange Zeit bestens unterhalten können.
