Looking for game: object spins, moves & you box it in

Hey there,

I'm looking for a game that has an object that looks a bit like a manual fan (think: what a geisha would use). This fan-thing spins and moves around a square on the screen. The objective is to draw lines (horizontal and perpendicular) to continuously confine it into a smaller and smaller space. If the object hits one of your lines while it's being drawn, you fail. As the game progresses, the object gets bigger and moves faster.

It was a black and white game and likely came on a shareware disk or something like that. It's probably around the 1989-1992 era. Quite fun.

Anyone got an idea? I used to have it on disk somewhere, but can't seem to find it.

Regards,
LazarusNine

Yep. That seems to be it. Or the game I played could have been a rip-off of it. Never mind - Sparkz it is! Thanks, Daxeria!!

Nice one, baku. =P If I come across the floppy disk with the game I'm thinking of which was obviously just a clone of Qix and Sparkz, I'll definitely see about uploading it here.
