Yay, it's a QIX Look! I'm a pretty big Volfied (Ultimate Qix) fan, and I'd love to see an updated version of that. This is the next best thing, though.
 
It's kinda like a mash-up between QIX, Pac-Man CE and Mutants. Noice.

Kid tested

#15 Posted by Neon941 (265 posts) -

Looks like a fun little game, $10 seems a little steep but if I was in the mood for some Qix I'd certainly consider it.

#16 Posted by Pudge (1060 posts) -

There is a scroll on the story screens and they didn't scroll!! That's why the story was so short! They have to go back and read it to us! I WANT MY STORY TIME!

Hrm.  I have a ... er ... a version of this game that has some naked ladies on it on mame for pc.  Lol.  I don't remember the name offhand, but it was the one where the ladies would turn into horrible mutilated corpses randomly during the game.  Messed up stuff.  
 
That was the most hilarious version of this game.  
 
Also, Jeff's good at Qix.

#18 Posted by stinky (1564 posts) -

am i remembering things wrong or did the original Qix have better graphics? 
i swear it did.

#19 Posted by dutch42 (538 posts) -

anybody else instantly think of that stupid art class game from bully?

@AltonBrown: That's the one indeed.  =D  I'm at work, so I couldn't exactly go looking for that page.  Seanbaby doesn't make it past my work's internet filter, unsurprisingly.

QIX as a story, who would have known! 
 
Great QL. Game looks disappointing though.

#23 Posted by wrecks (2435 posts) -

Complete shit. If your're going to update it... Update It! And, 16 stages? What a gyp.

ohhh I remember this. The name didn't sound familiar.

#25 Posted by SaucySala (372 posts) -

$10 for just 1 hour and the graphics look really... bland... NO THANKS!
Get the Geometry Wars guys on another QIX!

@stinky: no, you're remembering wrong
#27 Posted by Kete (56 posts) -

Considering you can get about a million free flash game versions of this i really can't see why you'd want to buy this, especially with a fairly tiny amount of levels. And it doesn't even look that much better than a flash game as it is.

#28 Posted by HatKing (6523 posts) -

I've played stuff like this before, the one they were talking about on the podcast last night I used to have.  These games are addicting but I don't think I'd pay $10 for one.

A Drew article!! YAY!!

#30 Posted by ArchScabby (5877 posts) -

Have quicklooks always got their own post?  Cuz if they have, I've never noticed.

#31 Posted by Snail (8776 posts) -

So videos are being posted to the forums now too?

#32 Posted by Starstew (18 posts) -

I like Qix, but I have to agree with Stinky and say the interface and graphics of this version look horrible.  When I first saw that there was a Qix++, I was sold... but seeing this thing in motion unsold me.  Thanks for the "Qix"look.

#33 Posted by skippyscissors (394 posts) -

Is that a Matrix reference in my Qix?

#34 Posted by mracoon (5087 posts) -

Since when did videos post to the forums?

Ahh finally a QL. I was getting a little worried with the lack of GB original video content.

I want to watch the conversation of the boss coming to the employee asking him to write the fiction for this game, as well as any revision process.
#37 Posted by jasonlblair (109 posts) -

I played a lot of Gals Panic during my teen years. Local all-night travel center had a machine. Later, I grabbed it as a MAME ROM.
 
Even without the nudity, it's the best version of QIX I've played.

Ryan is the only person in the world that uses the word "janky". No joke.

#39 Edited by Th3_James (2593 posts) -

OMG, this is the game i was playing on a friends dev kit like 6 months ago. lol
 
out of all the pre release shit he had i decided to try this and play hours of it :P
 
edit: and a game called limbo, that was really early and has no audio except for circular saws, and it is black and white. I can't wait til it comes out, it is the best puzzle game ever

QIX: kid tested, mother approved

I remember playing something like this on my old cellphone.

 I haven't seen it on Giant Bomb before but I'm pretty sure they do it on Comic Vine and Anime Vice. More people see it this way I guess.

@dutch42: Yup, these kind of games do bore me to tears after a few levels and to see something which is inside another game sold for about 7 quid with DLC to come just makes my scrotum skin shrivel. 
 
Taito are poo at XBLA games, they all feel so rough round the edges.

Drew, please read this thread and quit spamming the forums.  =  P 
 
Also, if any of you fail to see the sarcasm in my comment, then Viewtiful Joe has something to tell you...

#45 Posted by Wes899 (2168 posts) -

I think they have the old Qix in an arcade cabinet at my movie theater. I'll have to check it.

#46 Posted by Zorena (14 posts) -

Just had to make an account for this but wasn't the original game named Styx, could be wrong and that was so great back in the day. Lately you get thrown into so much 3dgames and grandgames like Dragon:age, that sometimes a game like this is just what you need. 

#47 Posted by Daftasabat (528 posts) -

Seen better free games

#48 Posted by PrinceAshitaka (49 posts) -

I played Qix all the time on the Game Boy growing up, though I always pronounced it "quicks"... Anyway, when I saw the title of this quick look, I totally freaked out. Like, that was an instant sell to me. Then I watched it, and now I'm complely unsold.

#49 Posted by TigerDX (370 posts) -

YEEEEEESSSS Gal's Panic! Dude, without MAME, I'd never have experienced such quality titles. 
 
Bring on the first wave of AO XBLA games with Gal's Panic.

@dutch42: Yep....that art class game was much harder though.
