Description from the packaging.

Your Mind Is Your Only Weapon…

What is Qix? (Pronounced Kicks.) Where did it come from? Where does it go when you turn off your computer? Can you capture Qix before it destroys you?

Qix is unlike any other game you've ever seen or played. It simulates a fictitious computer virus with a whirling multi-color helix, that lives inside the darkness of your computer- never resting.

The object of the game is to neutralize Qix by building a vaccine that contains the virus. You must trap the Qix within this carefully constructed space.

But think and act fast, because the Qix and its mutant offspring are trying to destroy you.

"Science is the knowledge of consequences and dependence of one fact upon another." - Thomas Hobbes, 1588-1679. (Leviathan)
"Qix is to video games, what Chess was to Kings…a classic mind game."

  • Over 9 Billion Possible Configurations.

Qix knows you're out there and it will find you… It's only a matter of time.
