This game was inspired from QIX and other 3rd-generation arcade games. This was my first game that allows the user to draw shapes and especially use them. The project was created in GameMaker: Studio and it took three days to complete. This was also my second quickest-made games besides 4x4.

Sound effects created using Labchirp and Chiptone.

It's a pretty enjoyable game and does remind me of old school games well.

This game feels so much like Qix that I almost feel like I'm playing an unreleased spin-off of it, hidden in the backroom of Taito's warehouse. The game itself works fine, but I have a couple complaints that I would like to see addressed.

The game simply does not want to be played; I'm using the latest version of Chrome browser, but the three times I tried to play it, it crashed the tab during gameplay. I don't know what causes this, but it might be worth looking into. The other two complaints are minor; the Drawgun logo and ship explosion graphics look a bit too advanced for 1983-ish standards, and break my immersion a bit. You spent so much effort evoking the Qix feeling that I feel you may want to change these graphics. Also, the title screen's instructions are cut off at the sides.

Overall, good work, and thank you for creating this game.

Have you played this on another browser? Internet explorer was the only browser that I have tested this on. And yes, most of this game was inspired by Qix, particularly the arcade version.

stuck on transition between level 1 and 2 but gud concept

MitchellProductions responds:

The level transition bug has now been fixed. Play this again and you will understand (if it works)

Very retro, audio and graphic fulfills the genre like congratulations.

MitchellProductions responds:

Thank you. I have always wanted to create a game that exaggerates with the sounds that I have created in sound effect generators such as Chiptone, and the retro-style graphics as well.
