You may never heard of this odd GameBoy Puzzle/ strategy game where you have to cover a certain bercentage of the board without being hit by the Qix, a collection of vector lines that expand and collapse swaying across the screen, and the Fuses which will follow the lines & try to kill you.

This really addictive little puzzler started off as an arcade game developed by Sandy & Randy Pfeiffer, which later got ported to the GameBoy for the masses to play on the go. But unfortunately fortune dictated that everyone bought Tetris instead. Shame.

But luckily it shares the same copycat trend Tetris got and now there are many Mobile games and Flash games which copy this classic hidden gem. Oh, and Nintendo are also releasing it on their 3DS Virtual Console.
