In this game a ball, which can be recoloured over colour fields and as in Breakout resolve stones of the same colour, is controlled by the joystick. Furthermore there are pushable stones that pose unwanted obstacles and skull fields that cost a life. While the first levels are well playable, the higher levels need more thinking.

Aim of the game
- Dissolve all coloured blocks, then the next level will come up.
- After losing a life, the current level needs to be repeated.
- The faster you finish a level, the higher is the time bonus.
- You can have a maximum of 7 lives.
When all 25 levels haven been done successfully, you get into a random mode.
From then on one of the 25 levels is chosen until the player has lost all his lives.
The version by T.A.G offers some options for cheating, which on the other hand also make the game less fun.
Jodigi: "Fantastic game with high addictive potential, which I played for hours at that time. It is also great, that for this game there is a level editor, that is nice to control."
Camailleon: "I loved playing Crillion in the earlier days and today it is as much fun as then. I think the idea of a different Breakout version is very felicitous."
- For this game a level editor is available, see: Crill-Edi
- The successor Crillion II is even harder.
- There are several versions of Crillion with different level design, that have never officially been released, but can be found on C64Games.de or Gamebase64.
