A fun and innovative variation of Taito's classic arcade game Qix, FenceOut is a fun little game in which you are a farmer who must set up fences to domesticate wild animals. Your goal in FenceOut is to close off sections of your farm while avoiding the wild horses pigs, cows, and goats that are running around madly. In addition, you must also keep an eye out for the evil blue dot which follows the fences you create, chasing you around the screen. Gameplay is user-friendliness at its best: use the arrow keys to navigate around the existing fences, and press the shift key (or the space bar) to start setting up new fences. Every new section you fence will immediately produce green grass, net you some points from the number of animals you fence in, and get you closer to fulfilling the goal (given % of areas fenced). Great sound effects, graphics, and fun gameplay makes FenceOut one of the best coffee-break games you'll come across. Interestingly, it's also one of the first games ZapSpot released under a fascinating new business model: free games by e-mail to anyone who subscribed to the ZapSpot list. Visit ZapSpot's site today to find FenceOut and other great coffee-break diversions. Especiallly try Hallow Meenies, a fun Halloween-themed variant of FenceOut. Two thumbs up!
