I intended to just play the game through normally, but tasing it felt more natural to me.

Ultimate Qix is that type of game where you draw lines to narrow the play area. Level is completed by reducing the area to 10% of it's original size. To make things interesting, each level presents a different boss and some smaller enemies that go around aimlessly.

The movie shows reflexes and skill, but in my opinion the sound effects ruin it completely. Also, level transitions take more time than completing the levels. Nevertheless, maybe there are a few happy guys who enjoy this by-product of my playing session.

At the hardest difficulty each level must be completed under 2.5 minutes. I aimed for the fastest possible time:

Round 1 7.2s
Round 2 5.4s
Round 3 4.1s
Round 4 2.3s
Round 5 1.7s
Round 6 4.9s
Round 7 2.8s
Round 8 6.9s
Round 9 2.0s
Round 10 4.5s
Round 11 3.5s
Round 12 1.6s
Round 13 3.2s
Round 14 4.5s
Round 15 8.1s
Round 16 4.5s
Total 1min 7.2s
Average 4.2s
