a legend in your own living room! Get ready for fast firing
fun with the re-launch of the popular '80's all-time classic
game. There have been updates in design and construction with
a playing field now measuring over 2 feet long with adjustable
goal guards for different skill levels. Blast the ball bearings
at the pucks and watch them spin and roll into your opponent's
goal. But remember to reload your firepower fast to protect
the re-release of old classic games are a bit of a let down.
I bought Ker-Plunk a few years ago - a game I had only
played once in the '80s and really enjoyed. So, when it was
reissued a few years ago I leapt at the chance to buy it.
Sadly I felt cheated! The game was more lightweight than the
original and the casing that held the straws was very temperamental
and would fall apart at the critical moment. Not only that,
but there were too few straws and the balls were too small,
which meant that the game was over minutes after it had started.
F.E.V.A have not only reissued a classic game, but actually
improved upon it. Crossfire was one of those toys,
like Ker-Plunk, that I never owned myself on its original
release - although I did play it a few times.
re-released version has a much larger playing arena, two different
shaped pucks for you to get into your opponent's goal, and
an adjustable goal mouth to make scoring that much harder.
This also levels the playing field if an adult is playing
a small child - allowing the weaker player an advantage.
£18 you can't get much more fun for your money and it
will get adults and children equally excited - I know, we
tried pitting some young children against some 40 and 50-somethings.
only real downside (or very small complaint) is that you are
really going to have to play this on the floor. Don't even
think of putting this on a table as the ball bearings go all
over the place (when they hit the pucks or another ball bearing,
they have a tendency to launch themselves off the board and
across the floor. This is not so bad if you are stationed
on the floor, but on a table you'll be scrabbling around on
your hands and knees for quite some time.
you hark back to the days when you had a Chopper bike, watched
Starsky and Hutch on the telly and had no idea what
a Playstation was... then you need this game to enrich your
life. And if you want a mindless game to play with the family
this is ideal.
way you look at it the new and improved Crossfire is
a real winner.
