The Video Game Critic
Atari light gun games aren't usually anything to write home about, but this one isn't half bad. In Crossbow you protect your friends as they wander across the screen by destroying various projectiles which approach them. There are numerous other harmless objects you can shoot for bonus points. The difficulty is fair, and the light gun is pretty accurate. The screens have medieval themes including castles, bridges, deserts, and volcanoes. The scenery has plenty of detail and animation, but due to the limited number of colors it can be difficult to see certain objects. You can choose the order in which you play the stages, which raises the replay value.
