Silk is a fun adult Qix-style game from Subsino, a Taiwanese developer. Your goal in each level is to use the arrow keys and spacebar to "draw" lines from the edge to expose a hidden picture of a (scantily clad, of course) girl underneath. You need to expose at least 80% of the girl's picture to advance to the next level. If you get 100%, you will be treated to a neat little animation of hula dancers for a few seconds. |
While drawing lines, you must avoid spiders, evil clowns, or other menacing "boss" monsters. These boss monsters grow gradually, so it is imperative for you to finish a level quickly. You can draw lines to capture food items to gain time, but watch out for evil skulls that have the opposite effect.
There are fun extras that make Silk more enjoyable than your typical Qix games. For example, sometimes the screen suddenly changes to a different picture; you can capture one of the square bonus items to change it back. You can also accidentally clear the screen without exposing the girl picture, in which case – well, better luck next time ;) If you like Qix or relaxing arcade games that won't tax your brains, Silk is well worth a look. Although the game is definitely adult-themed due to nude pictures of anime girls, it doesn't contain anything nearly as offensive as, say, Gal Pani X. The game is in Chinese, but you shouldn't have problems navigating the sparsely written menus. Highly recommended, but with some reservations.Reviewed by: Underdogs
