This week on Xbox LIVE Arcade: Qix++

You remember Qix, right? That great old game where you draw lines, trying to fill the majority of a stage while not getting hit by the annoying squiggly line monster and its minions. It was and still is loads of fun, especially if you happen to be a big risk taker.

"Watch this. I'm going to beat the level using a single line. Come on, come on, 90% of the way there ... 95% ... s**t! The Qix (the unpredictable stick thing) really is one of the most overlooked videogame villains. Its only goal in life is to destroy your hopes and dreams of successfully drawing lines. So cruel.

I love the game, and if everything goes according to plan, I'll probably enjoy Qix++ when it hits Xbox LIVE Arcade this Wednesday. It's going for 800 Microsoft Points, which may actually be justified -- the few screenshots I've seen look radically newish.

Unless of course it's all recycled additions used in an updated Qix from a collection of Taito games I missed out on. In that case, well ... I'll still probably buy this release anyway.
