What a weird idea! The story goes as follows... Arthur Crown is studying for his final exam, but he keeps getting nightmares (I wonder why!) about his results.

You control a little man trying to stop paper-eating monsters crawling over your sheets of A4. But, as always, it isn't that easy. If a worm manages to reach the other end of your paper (this is the weird bit!) it will blow up as a result of indigestion. Not only do they rip your paper they also leave trails of ink wherever they go. Your only defence is chasing them then crushing them. From time to time, morsels appear to try and tempt you. By eating them you will increase points. By leaving them, you lose points giving you no option.

Your games ends when less than 25% of the paper is covered with the wrong ink. To overcome the problem you simply cover it with tippit.

Quinx is very simple and is one of the most original games I have come across in a long while.
