You will probably like this game if you like fast logic games.

In Xonix a little object has to be moved through a field. While moving it keeps a trail and when it leaves the field the part of the field surrounded by the line is removed. However, there are some evil beings which kill the player if they touch any part of the line.

The idea of Xonix is not new but is it a good one. It is really fun to move around your little object and try to remove as much of the play field as possible. As a little logic helps a lot to do so the game is not purely action. Especially if there are more and more enemies on the field it gets really hard and only a good strategy can help you survive. The game is well implemented, only the graphic is plain and not very interesting. Nevertheless, the game is fascinating and will keep you playing. It certainly is worth downloading it.
