    I used to play a very addictive game on the PC. I'd like to find a version for my VDx. Unfortunately, I don't remember the name of the game. I think it was in one of the old Microsoft game collections. You start with a ball bouncing around and you try to block it into as small an area as possible, then you get multiple balls. You draw walls by clicking on a spot on the screen.

    Any ideas?

    It was Jezzball on the PC. (Yep, old Microsoft game collection - free in a package of diskettes.) I think I used to have a similar game on my Visor, but took it off, cause I wasn't playing it, and needed the space. I'll have to research further...

    Sorry... can't find it anywhere. (If I did have something like it, it's long gone from my computer.) I'll keep an eye out for it.

    I'm not familiar with this game you mention, but you might want to try Flytrap. It sounds an awful lot like your description. The background music is cool though the flight of the bumblebee might have been more fitting. It works on the Visor Deluxe, and when loaded on the Prism you'll see that it's also a colour app. It doesn't run off of the flash module.

    Strangely absent at PalmGear, you can find it at C|Net and Palmtracker.com

    Nope. Xonix is a Qix clone. It's not like Jezzball.

    Flytrap isn't close either.

    I'd never heard of Qix, but I've played both Jezzball and Xonix and would say that they're very similar, so similar that I assumed that one's a clone of the other.

    Difference of perception. However, I bet most Jezzball fans won't think they are similar, especially if they remember Qix.
