Hands-On Mobile, a developer of connected games and applications, has
announced that one of the 1980’s favorite games, Crystal Quest, is
now available for iPhone and iPod touch from the Apple App Store
(http://www.itunes.com/appstore/) for US$4.99.

Crystal Quest made its first appearance on the Mac in 1987. Here’s
how the game is described: “First created by veteran game developer
Patrick Buckland, Crystal Quest is a mega-selling classic 20 years in
the making. This space shooter game features updated graphics with
retro gameplay requiring players to pilot a ship through wave after
wave of action, collecting crystals and evading the Nasties, unique
enemies that 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. Collect all the crystals to open the gateway to the
next level, but don’t forget to gather up the goodies in each wave –
from bonus points to extra smart bombs and even an occasional
mega-crystal for massive points.”
