Volfied (US, revision 1)


Volfied (c) 1989 Taito.


An update of Taito's 1981 classic, "Qix", Volfied adopts the same 'draw boxes to colour in the background' gameplay of its predecessor but updates both the graphics and in-game enemies. A number of power-ups are available, revealed when certain sections of the background have been filled, such as Speed-up, temporary enemy freeze and laser. The player's ship is only in danger from the game's enemies while the player is actually drawing a line. Each level must be completed within a tight time limit.
