Description
A Trapping game in the spirit of Qix and the Vectrex. Draw lines around triangles to box them in and watch them explode!

How to Play
XIQ is a game about trapping. Your avatar can fire in 4 directions, creating lines. If those lines form a box, the badguys in the box are destroyed and you score points. Move with the arrow keys or joystick and shoot in all four directions with WASD. Once you fire a bullet, it creates a trailing line. This line forms the edge of a box. Use four lines to create a box, trapping triangles inside.

All triangles inside a completed box get destroyed and you score points!

Any triangle touching a line will freeze in place until that line disappears. Once the line disappears the triangle becomes quite anxious to kill you, I suggest avoiding it.

The amount of points you get for a box is dependant on the size of the box and the number of triangles inside it. The smaller the box the better!

To score power ups just move your guy on top of them. The temporary powerups go away after after 5 seconds, so make sure you can get it before trying! The effects granted by the permanent ones stay after dying.
