The 1987 classic returns with updated graphics, enhanced special effects and Dolby sound! Pilot your ship through 60 waves, collecting crystals and evading the Nasties. These unique baddies–each one different–emerge from portals on each side of the screen. Fire your weapon at them, or deploy a smart bomb to vaporize every Nasty on the screen. Grab all the crystals to open the gateway at the bottom of the screen. And don’t forget to gather up the goodies in each wave… you can find bonus points, extra smart bombs and even an occasional mega-crystal for massive points!
I lead the small team porting Crystal Quest from Xbox 360 to Windows Vista, on behalf a Stainless Games/Code Masters/Microsoft, ready to launch on schedule in the Microsoft Marketplace alongside the introduction of Windows Vista.
This required adapting to the new version of Windows and the submission standards required (manifests etc were being introduced), so involved working closely with Windows developers to ensure the results were compliant. Lots of fun! 🙂
