Looks good. Never heard of Crossfire before but looks like a fun game.

Looks like a similar game to Bomberman games I thought?

But not bombs in this one.  At least, not yet (since it is still in development). :)

RevEng made 7800basic so this game is him "eating his own dogfood".   In other words, every bug squashed and improvement made in the game improves 7800basic.. which in turn begets many more 7800basic developers  making better games!

Sounds like a great way to "iron out the wrinkles!"

This game has evolved a lot and it was shows at CGF.  It now even has voice support through the AtariVox!  Here is a video of the game in action...

Awesome!  I love the old school arcade style voices.  It reminds me of Gorf! "Insert coin space cadet."  :41:
