Xonix is a video game in the style of Qix written for DOS by Ilan Raab and Dani Katz. The goal of the game is to fence off sections of a playfield where balls that the player must avoid bounce around.
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. It was first developed for the Electronika 60 and then ported to MS-DOS by Pavlovsky and Vadim Gerasimov.
