But that's selling the game short. In actuality Qix is highly entertaining, and well worth owning. The controls a little sluggish, but you'll hardly notice. And best of all, it's two players!! Not the best game for the system, but far from the worst!

The Video Game Critic
This miniature edition captures the same risk-taking gameplay as the original, but it's less exciting. The helix is more predictable and appears to be moving in slow motion. Like the arcade, you can employ a fast or slow "draw" to section areas, slow being riskier but worth more points. Unlike the arcade game however, areas cordoned off with slow draw look the same as those made with the fast draw (they should be a different color). Qix's audio is above average. The sound of the helix brings to mind a swinging light saber, and melodic tunes play between stages. Good, but not quite up to arcade standards, Qix is an average title for the Lynx.
