I'm searching for a game with the same mechanics.
Playing Lightfish made me remember that I used to play a lot a similar game when I was a kid. I think it was on XP, but I'm not sure. Also, it had no theme, like the oceanic theme in this one, the fantasy theme of Fortix or the sci-fi theme of Volfix; you were just a small square and the enemies were balls. I think you were red, the enemies where black and the screen was as the default wallpaper of Windows 98, something like this this[i.imgur.com].

I already know the answer, but I have to ask anyway. Someone remembers which game it was or has a clue about it?

I'm not sure if its the same game. But all of these games with these mechanics come from a 1981 arcade game called Qix[en.wikipedia.org].

It's not the same game I was looking for, but well... another game to add to my pending games list

Agreed. Both are fabulous games! I used to have Qix on my Commodore 64 when I was a kid. I played that game so much!

The first time i have seen this game mechanic was in a japanese 18+ visual novel ^^.
"Yuukuri Panic Escalation" from 2008, if you are interested.

Nope, but it looked quite similar. I'm starting to think it was just a random game without name or comercialization, like a generic connect 4 game you can find out there, for example.

I don't think so, but thanks.
