The player controls a cursor that navigates through an empty, rectangular field. Pursuing the player are two enemy cursors and the eponymous Qix – a psychedelic energy field that aimlessly rambles around the field. The player’s objective is to “draw” rectangles, large or small, that cordon off at least 75% of the field.

Qix was inducted on May 25th, 2009.
