Crossbow is a single person shooting game with a gun in which you must protect your friends on the screen from various enemies that would do them harm. Mounted on the front of the cabinet is a crossbow that must be aimed accurately to shoot at falling rocks, ghosts, arrows and other assorted hazards which are directed at your friends, who walk across the screen from left to right. If a character is hit, he or she dies on the spot. Lose all your characters on a single screen and the game is over.
If one or more of your characters makes it safely across the screen, you are offered the choice of two or three different colored paths that will lead you to another scenario represented on the map. Choose your paths carefully and you will find yourself in a treasure room. Accumulate enough points and you are awarded new friends whom you must also protect. ~ Michael Schwartz/Joan Dykman, All Game Guide
