crystal.jpg Alert consumers who actually own an Xbox 360 may be delighted to see another Xbox Live Arcade title popping up as soon as tomorrow, in the form of Crystal Quest. As the official page notes: "The 1987 classic, Crystal Quest, returns with updated graphics, enhanced special effects and Dolby sound! Pilot your ship through 60 waves, collecting crystals and evading the Nasties."

Interestingly, Crystal Quest was produced by UK native Patrick Buckland, who went on to found Carmageddon creator Stainless Software, and now heads up Stainless Games, which made this Xbox 360 conversion. Crystal Quest itself was converted to Apple IIgs by seminal programmer "Burger" Bill Heineman, and is another classic twitch game for the flourishing Xbox 360 Live Arcade scene.
