The cup quickly disappears when shot at the end of the round, and pieces of plastic are expelled from the hole beneath to create the illusion that the cup has been shattered.
Quick and Crash is a quick draw shooting game released by Namco in 1999. Taking influence from the vintage mechanical shooting galleries of an older era, it brings the experience up-to-date with light-sensor technology, state-of-the-art audio and visual illusions.
The aim is to shoot targets in the quickest possible time after the gun is drawn. Moving bullseye targets appear in random positions and in different quantities depending on the level. The final target is a plastic cup, which smashes dramatically to end the round.
As well as showing the player’s current time, the cabinet also houses a dot matrix display with dynamic messaging that makes the game feel more responsive. This, coupled with the tactile element of drawing the gun from its holster and the added dimension afforded by real targets, is what separates Quick and Crash from other virtual, though no less fun, shooting games like Point Blank.
A round of Quick and Crash is short and best enjoyed in small groups as players challenge each other for the fastest time. Its carnival-like simplicity and “do your best” Namco audio commentary, transports players back to a time in the amusements when life was carefree and the targets were plastic.
