Maze Craze - Volume 2, Number 7, Maze 5:


  • Concept: Crossbow © 1983 Exidy, Incorporated
  • Artist: Dana, aka Dad

Another 1983 number, Crossbow was an early arcade light-run shooter released by Exidy, and was the first video game to feature digitized voice and sound effects.

Adapting light-gun shooter gameplay to a maze tunred out to be an interesting challenge. The result is a maze with only three paths derived from the "Which Way?" choice first made in the game, with a puzzle of idetifying which details on which path will lead to death and which won't.
