Qix And Fortified Zone Set Up Camp On 3DS Virtual Console


Qix is one of the two Virtual Console downloads on the Nintendo 3DS this week. Qix ($2.99) is a game where you guide a diamond cursor around the playing field to claim a majority of the space by drawing fully-enclosed shapes.


The other game game is Fortified Zone ($3.99), developed by Jaleco in 1991, where you play as a pair of secret agents, Masato Kanzaki and Mizuki Makimura, attempting to infiltrate and destroy a fortress.
