When you start the game you find yourself on a field sprinkled with crystals and other goodies. Your job is to collect all the crystals while avoiding the mines – not to mention the 12 breeds of nasties and their bullets that soon turn up to try and stop you. Once you collect all the crystals, an exit at the bottom of the screen opens up so you can escape. Sounds simple? All the best games are – the depth of gameplay emerges from the simplest of pretexts.

Crystal Quest Classic is a revival of the 1987 award winning video game. The original was played on almost every Macintosh computer in existence before being ported to the Apple IIgs, Amiga and the Game Boy – followed many years later by a reawakening on the Xbox360. It had so many firsts including being the very first color game on the Macintosh, and its CritterEditor™ which was one of the first user modding tools for any game. The CritterEditor made it so you could not only edit the look of the nasties, you could change the sound, the point value, the speed, the firing rate, and so much more. Crystal Quest was one of 5 titles included in Macworld Magazine’s “Game Hall of Fame” and got 5 out of 5 mice from MacUser Magazine.

HOW DO I GET A COPY OF THIS GAME?? I was a Crystal Quest fanatic back in the day. Has someone really resurrected it? I want it! I cannot find a 'download' button. SOMEONE HELP ME, PLEASE.
