What is the ProjeX Projecting Game Arcade?
ProjeX turns any wall in your home into a fun gaming arcade. It comes with two blasters, the projector, and three target cartridges! You don’t need a tv. All you do is put the projector on a low table about 5 feet away from a wall. You want to have a darkened room or you can play on the back of a garage or outdoor fence at night. Preferably, you want that wall to be free of decor or wallpaper.
The game system provides the following:
- LED Scoring system
- 5 different built-in games test your speed and skill.
- 3 skill levels – beginner, advanced and expert (The “beginner” setting accommodates even the youngest players in the room.)
- 3 interchangeable image slides! Blast ducks, targets or UFOs – each with its own unique sound effects!
- Change slides to change your level of difficulty:
- Blue (targets) = easy
- Red (UFOs) = medium
- White (ducks) = difficult
Basically, anyone can play it! You can play solo, head to head, or co-op. It’s all up to you!
What We Loved about the ProjeX Projecting Game Arcade
We recently started doing Family Night again in our house and are always on the look out of things we can do as a family. With having kids with a vast age difference, it is sometimes difficult to find something everyone will enjoy.
The ProjeX Projecting Game Arcade definitely fit the bill! Our youngest had fun hitting ducks, and I had some nostalgia of doing Duck Hunt with my cousins when I was her age.
I loved that we didn’t need to plug it into the tv. Sometimes, it gets so hard to find spaces to plug in game systems. Also, I love that it is portable. That means we can take it with us to family gatherings this spring and summer.
Setup for the ProjeX Projecting Game Arcade was fairly simple. We have a wall in our living room that is perfect for playing. We put the projector on a low table, and popped in a slide. Easy Peasy. One thing worth mentioning is that you really have to make sure that the blasters are plugged into the port. We thought one wasn’t working at first. As it turns out, we just didn’t have it plugged in the right way
The fact that my husband and I enjoyed it just as much as the kids really makes it versatile. I can see me and my husband using this for a stay at home date night easily. Also, its portability makes it really versatile as well. We can use it as a family or as part of an event.
The ProjeX Projecting Game Arcade is priced at $49.99 and can be found on the ProjeX website or at Target and Walmart. Considering everything that is involved with the system, I don’t find that to be a bad price. There’s a lot to the system, and you don’t need to purchase any games or anything extra.
