Styx was an action maze game published by Bug-Byte Software in 1983. It was the first ZX Spectrum game written by Matthew Smith, and the first of his three-game contract with the company. He went on to write Manic Miner in the same year, as well as a sprite designer utility for Adrian Sherwin to use in developing The Birds and the Bees.

Critical reaction[edit]

Sinclair User described the game as "reasonably lively",[2] while CRASH said the game "would not be interesting if it weren’t for the fact that it’s not easy."[3]
