Squarkix[tm] is a classic-style arcade game for Apple® iOS® available on Apple's app store. Squarkix are green square tiles that appear on the screen and turn into globes when you touch them.

You score one point for each squarkix you touch. The first few levels of the game are easy: squarkix are big and slow. But each new level brings smaller, quicker squarkix: use your fingertips to touch as many squarkix as possible.

Touching a squarkix-free area is a miss; each level allows a limited bonus number of misses, so be careful and aim well at squarkix.

At the end of each level, Squarkix lets you... relax a few seconds before starting the next level. Set your preferred pause time in the "Options" screen.

You can also turn on or off the sound effects. Note by the way that you can listen to your favorite iPod music while playing Squarkix. To clear the score list, touch "Reset score". Beware: this will completely erase your score records.
