Best QIX style game?

There are a handful of Qix-style clones out there and I was wondering which of them (or which one) you guys found the best?

I recently discovered Expando, and it's quite a fun little Qix-style game.

Dr. Awesome is by far the best.

There is also Zoneout, Burnball, Bix and a few others out there.

Games I highly recommend: CozyQuest, Gemmed, Jabeh, Blue Defense, Blue Attack, geoDefense, Hospital Havoc

The blurb for Dr Awesome makes a deal about your contacts - if you have a Touch does not using contacts detract from it? How much is it different iphone / ipod touch?

I don't use contacts (iPod Touch) and it makes up randomly generated names.

Granted, not the best names as you'll find repeated surnames and first names now and then, but it does recover gracefully if you have an empty contact list.

You could of course make up fake contacts solely for the game.

It really is that good, where that may be considered by some.

Fantastic game.

Zone Warrior is really fun, good graphics and you can win iTunes gift cards. It also has daily, weekly and alltime online high score tracker.

Never played Dr. Awesome though.

Is Zone Warrior a "fence off" type of game? o.O
