Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
An officially licensed port of the Exidy classic! Crossbow was one of the first games to feature a light gun in the arcade and it was also the first arcade game with fully digitized sound effects and speech. (earlier games only featured speech synthesis or a loop tape) Optimized for touch interface but retaining all the classic sounds, characters and enemies, Crossbow is ready for a quick play anytime!
What's New in Version 1.11
Improved Menu and choice Response
I loved this game in the arcade in the 80s, & I had high hopes based on the reviews. However, despite the low system requirements, it never failed that the game would crash while trying to advance to the next level. When it didn't crash, it would freeze my iPad 1 (running iOS 5) & require a reboot. I ultimately had to delete this game, & I'm glad I only spent $0.99.
Dragon Dungeon freezes at the treasure! What the???
When you get to the Dungeon screen, your "friends" get stuck by the treasure and don't collect it. They're supposed to collect the treasure and fall through the floor to the next level. This bug problem is a huge negative since there is no way to beat the game and get to face the main boss. Please FIX IT!!!!?? Thanks.
3 Big Problems
1. Orientation won't rotate on iPhone/iPod, so you're stuck playing it vertically. Much too small to shoot accurately.
2. Can't shoot center icicle in the ice cavern, so everyone dies there.
3. Can't collect the treasure in the dungeon, so the only way to end the game (after all the threats are gone) is to shoot your friends. Happy to rerate as a 5 if these bugs are fixed.
