    Default Ultimate Qix

    Taito has a long history of arcade hits, and the company ported many of them to the Genesis. In addition to games like Saint Sword and Cadash, gamers received an excellent port of Volfied, also known as Ultimate Qix. Challenging and highly addictive, this puzzle/action hybrid offered excellent gameplay wrapped up in some great presentation - a yummy package all around. Read our full review, and try not to get lost among all the lines!

    I am a Qix NUT!! But never even knew about this port!! To be honest, I'm rather suspicious of it...I mean, if you're not a Qix fan it might be awesome, but it looks butchered! I mean, this might work though, don't get me wrong! Qix NEO for the PS is pretty damn good and it has a whole new look. I gotta give this a go, as soon as I find a copy.

    I feel stupid for not knowing this game ever came out...

    PS

    DAMN YOU SEGA 16!!

    My budget will never survive your onslaught!

    Hooray, Qix! I've only ever played the older arcade version included with Taito Legends 2 for PS2. For a game older than I am, it gets stupidly addictive..

    I played Ultimate Qix years ago on an emu (before I discovered how bad it is to own ROMs) and quite enjoyed it. A 2-player mode would have been cool.

    This game is very similar to Jezzball on the Microsoft Windows. Much like Fire Shark, my plastic mom loves that game, so maybe I should buy this game for her.

    I bought this ages ago based on the cover art (ye damn fool!) thinking it was a shmup, and was sore disappointed.

    Played it again recently (with the sound off!) and actually got addicted to it for a week or two. Haven't played it since.

    Conclusion: Um.

    Yeah, I also bought Volfied thinking alright, another taito shooter! Good game though, I agree with the score

    I have two points of discussion:

    1) I've played this game for about twenty minutes on an emulator about six months ago, and I think the review got it about right. Im going to go play it again when I get a chance.

    2) How is Qix pronounced? I've never heard it actually said, is it like Keex or is it like Kix?

    It's pronounced "kicks."

    It's a very good game, but it is pretty easy if you're just looking to beat it. Getting a high percentage can be tricky. David X. Cohen of Simpsons and Futurama is a big fan of Qix. He mentioned on a Futurama interview how Matt Groening bought him the original arcade Qix with some of his vast Simpsons fortune. Cohen and Qix is part of the focus of a this Wired blog worth checking out.

    I almost wish they didn't update all the graphics though, I wish it was just diamonds, lines, colors and a helix...it was pretty badass...

    I don't agree with the review, this game doesn't feel right, it's missing something that made the original so good. I love the Atari 5200 and NES ports to death.
