Crossy Road was released on Nov. 20, 2014, to iOS and to Android on Dec. 18, 2015. The goal of the game is to help your avatar cross the road while avoiding obstacles without losing your place. First playing this game when he was 6, freshman Nathan Straight enjoyed the idea of beating your high score. “I know it was really challenging to try to get to your newest high score,” Straight said. “I [recently] installed it just to see how far I can get like a couple of times.” Straight originally played this game on an old iPad, and now he plays it on his iPhone.
