A sequel, ''Qix++'', was released for XboxLiveArcade. Prior to that, there was a sequel in 1987 called ''Super Qix'' in which the player uncovers pictures and features a goblin-like creature as the "Qix" and little red skulls as the "Sparx". ''VideoGame/{{Volfied}}'' (alternately known as ''Ultimate Qix'' or ''Qix Neo''), released in 1989[[note]] and also made by Taito[[/note]], is a similar game with a science fiction theme, and incorporates power ups into the gameplay. The original game was also adapted by Creator/{{Nintendo}} into an early GameBoy title featuring [[TheCameo cameo appearances]] by [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]].

Qix (1981) was a [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfVideoGames Golden Age videogame]] involving, of all things, drawing. Draw boxes using "stix" to claim as much screen as possible without getting in the path of the "Qix" (pronounced [[ItIsPronouncedTroPAY either "kicks" or "quicks"]] depending on where you live), "Sparx" or "Fuse". Draw slower for more points and hope that you have enough coins. If the Qix touches one of the player's stix while in the process of drawing, a life is lost. Claim enough of the playfield, and the player wins and moves on to the next level. Later levels have two Qixs to deal with. If the player successfully draws a stix between them, the level is cleared automatically, and while you get no bonus points for it, the next level gives you twice the bonus. Simple but very addicting!

Dividing the play-field fills the smaller of the two areas, claiming it for the player. Draw slower for more points and hope that you have enough coins. If the Qix touches one of the player's stix while in the process of drawing, a life is lost. Claim enough of the playfield, and the player wins and moves on to the next level.
