Styx was originally created by Windmill Software in 1983 and released as a copy-protected, bootable 5.25” floppy disk for the IBM PC/XT. It is a clone of the 1981 arcade game Qix. Three significant differences are: the caterpillar (that can grow in size in later rounds), the introduction of diagonal movement (in contrast to Qix allowing only four directions), and the X1/X5/X10 multiplier that would color a claimed area corresponding to the color of the multipler (also awarding that many points).
