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!

Qix ist wie gesagt nicht taufrisch, für die Lynxsammlung aber sicherlich eine Bereicherung. Spielspaß und Paßwortfunktion garantieren ebenfalls eine lohnende Investition.

Malgré les qualités indéniables de ce portage de QIX sur Lynx, il faut bien reconnaître qu'on se sent rapidement à l'étroit dans cette minuscule surface de jeu. Pour ne rien arranger, cet écran réduit a un impact direct sur la difficulté: pas évident d'éviter les adversaires quand on se sent à l'étroit dès les premières secondes de la partie. Bref, difficile de faire mieux sur la petite portable d'Atari, mais le plaisir de jeu en souffre.

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.
