Do you have any gamers in your family?
I sure do! My husband and all 3 of my kids enjoy playing video games. My 10 year old daughter is especially adept at video games, and is teaching herself coding, programming, and has goals to eventually create games, herself. I am all about girls being scientific powerhouses, so we celebrate her self-proclaimed nerdiness over here.
Anyway, while we all enjoy a good game, we're not always in the position to challenge one another to a game or three. Handheld devices and consoles don't always offer multiple player games, and at least a console isn't always easily portable. They require power outlets, and dragging systems, cords, and all the games around can be quite cumbersome.
Thankfully, there's a new gaming device in town: The ProjeX arcade system! This nifty unit comes with 5 built in games, 2 "guns", and a projection unit that turns any wall into an arcade. No wall outlets or TV screens are required to play, making it perfect for even outdoor play, using the garage wall as a surface.
How cool is that?!
The ProjeX unit was easy to set up and was ready to play in just a couple of minutes. There's a red gun and a blue gun, which are used to shoot at the various targets.
Targets include a bullseye, a UFO looking thing, and a duck, too. This reminds me of an old school hunting game I used to play as a kid. Oh, the memories.
Since we don't really have any blank walls downstairs, we decided to try this out on the ceiling for starters. This worked well, and gave us up to 288" of gaming area. It was so much fun watching the kiddos race to hit the target first. This game can be played solo, head to head, or in a super fun co-op mode.
Of course, there are different difficulty settings, so even beginners can play, too. For expert marksman, the harder settings will definitely test your speed, accuracy, and get your blood pumping as you hit the target with lightning speed.
With 5 different games and 3 interchangeable target slides, the fun goes on and on, no matter where you happen to be! This would even be great during summer camping trips, if you bring a sheet along and hang it up between trees.
If you've got competitive gamers, fear not! The ProjeX unit keeps score digitally on the unit, so you'll always know who is getting their butt kicked.
Check out this quick video showing the kids playing for the first time. This was on an easier mode, so the target wasn't moving super quickly at this point. I love the fun, arcade sounds, too!
Overall, we're loving this cool alternative to console gaming. This unit is portable, incredibly simple to use, and it is adaptable so every member of the family can give it a go, regardless of their skill level. I love the retro feel, and just the convenience the ProjeX allows. This unit is a sure hit in our home, and we plan to take it to a music festival this summer, as well as continue to enjoy it here at home.
If you're looking for a highly portable, screen-free way to get your gaming in, definitely check this out!
