Crossfire

Crossfire

This 2 player shooter game was a bit like table hockey except you used guns firing metal pellets to knock the pucks in to the goals. A Crossfire gun was positioned at each end of the playing area and opponents would face each other and try to knock the 'star puck' and 'tri puck' in to each other's goals.

Each Crossfire player had twenty steel balls to use but could reload with any balls that rolled in to the goal area. Crossfire was played offensively and defensively by not only trying to score goals but also by trying to knock pucks away from the goal area.

The first player to score three goals was the winner.

    Broxy, the game was called "Speed Bang Bang" (I'm pretty sure). I had one too when I was a kid, and it was way better than Crossfire. I've been trying to find one, but have had no luck. Cheers Craig

    I wonder if anyone can help, I had a game very similar to crossfire. It was set up on a large blue blow moulded plastic playing surface with the same guns as crossfire but the ball bearings were fired at a larger ball bearing and the target for large ball bearing was you opponants goal. Anyone know what it's called?

    You had to shoot the puck in to the goal, I remember it, mine was fine until me and a friend found we could eat the ball bearings, we ate halve of mine then went round his and ate his too (don't ask why, seemed a good idea when we was 7)

    I remember this game so much - great fun and if you got bored you could just throw the balls at each other. Would love to find one and let my son have a go! Mark

    I had one of these games! I remember having sore trigger fingers after about 2 hours of playing it!

    Why hav you included a picture of the rubbish remake? The original was much better as it was before all this PC nonsense and the game was huuge. It also caused many a blister on the trigger finger so a lot of people taped foam to the triggers to be able to play for longer.

    Probably the best part of crossfire was the commercial where two kids played the game over a pit of lava standing on oversized versions of the pucks. At the end, the evil kid that lost spun away into the distance. The jingle was excellent too. "Crossfire....you'll get caught up in the...crossfire (repeat a few times) Crossfire...Crossfire...CROSSFIIIIIIIIIRE!!! (last one almost Freddie Mercury style)

    I wanted one as a child - and do now again ! The perfect boys' game, a bit sore on the fingers if you were gathering up your pelltes and your opponent was still firing.
