    CROSSFIRE COMES TO IBM

    Thousands loved it on the Apple and Atari personal computers, now IBM users can enjoy it, too! This fast-action arcade game sends aliens at you from three different directions on a grid laid out like a city. You can move in any direction, but watch out! - you can also be fired upon from any direction. Can you avoid an attack from all sides and still "clean up" the city? Each time you hit an alien, it evolves into a meaner, faster and uglier monster. After the fourth hit, an alien will finally die. Smooth animation of many objects simultaneously and non-stop action will give you a challenge and enjoyment for hours. See if you can avoid being caught in the CROSSFIRE! Requires at least 48k and a Color/Graphics Monitor Adapter. Available at your local computer store for $29.95 or order directly from:
    SIERRA ON-LINE, INC.
    36575 Mudge Ranch Road
    Coarsegold, CA 93614

Back of Box - Commodore 64:
    They have landed and are taken over the city. Steadily they're making their way
    across town, destroying everything in their paths. The town has been evacuated
    and your regiment has retreated, leaving you alone in the city at the mercy of the
    aliens.

    The aliens have you surrounded, and laser shots fly from all directions. Your
    movements are confined but you haven't given up. If you're going to live, you'll
    have to concentrate on where the shots are coming from and where you're going
    because if you don't you'll get caught in the CROSS FIRE.
