Xonix is a video game written for MS-DOS compatible operating systems by Ilan Raab and Dani Katz. It is similar in concept to Taito's 1982 arcade video game Qix. The objective is to fence off sections of a playfield while avoiding bouncing balls.

Legacy[edit]

Xonix was popular at the Dorodnicyn Computing Centre, where Dmitry Pavlovsky, one of the original developers of Tetris, was a computer engineer. Pavlovsky and Vadim Gerasimov wrote their own version of Xonix called Antix.[1] It was first developed for the Electronika 60 and then ported to MS-DOS by Pavlovsky and Vadim Gerasimov.
