Slash Xonix Editor's Review

Slash xonix is a freeware game which takes the lesser known classic title xonix, and revamps and reworks it into a title for the desktop computer. Xonix (the game on which slash xonix is obviously based) is a game in which you must split the screen up into separate parts with the main character, with the smaller of the two parts you split being filled in, and all the enemies inside being killed. This is a simple concept until you must work out when to split to maximise enemy deaths, and when not to split, a fun and interesting gameplay concept.

The gameplay of slash xonix is very simple. You are given a square box stage (although in later stages some of the shapes are increasingly vague polygons, which are designed in a way to make the stage easier to start, but harder to finish) which you control your character around the edges of, and then you must move your character from one part of the edge to the other, going over some of the middle of the stage. This will split the stage into two parts, a bigger part and a smaller part, the smaller part being turned solid. To beat a stage, a minimum percentage of the stage (usually two thirds, or 66%) must be filled in.

Although this may sound like a simple enough concept, the addition of enemies to mix is where the challenge is created, as the path you take across the board will be marked by a trail until you reach another edge, and if any of the enemies hit this trail (or your character) you will lose a life. The enemies also add another layer of strategy to the game, as you'll have to determine the correct time to go across, but in addition to this any enemies in a “filled in” section of the level will be killed, so maximum umber of enemies killed will make the level very simple.

The controls of slash xonix are very simple and standard for games of it type, with the arrow keys being used for all movement, with the direction of the arrow key obviously taking you in the corresponding direction. The mouse is used for the menu though, although this and exiting the game is all it is used for. Slash xonix  has incredibly simple and responsive controls in all regards, so if a game with tight controls is important to you, even for a retro game, slash xonix pulls through with its controls.

The graphics of slash xonix are perhaps its biggest let down (even if it is intentional) as they are very poor, presumably attempting to replicate the arcade style gameplay of the classic game it is replicating. Overall though, slash xonix is actually a very very fun game, with decent gameplay mechanics, tight controls and a solid length to the game through a number of levels with an interesting level of difficulty. The big downside to slash xonix is in the aesthetics department, but if you can put the way the game looks aside it's an incredible game, that's definitely worth a download.  4/5
