I know I'm not alone when I write it's been a long April. Between social distancing and the typical, rainy weather we're experiencing here in New York, we're indoors a lot more than usual. Keeping the boys occupied, other than with their iPads, can be challenging. It's always fun for us when I receive the opportunity to review toys and games, especially given our current circumstances. I've been looking for low-tech ways to engage the boys so when the ProjeX Image Projecting Arcade arrived on our doorstep for a test-drive, we were all enthusiastic to give it a try.
The Projex gaming system projects moving targets likes ducks and UFOs onto almost any wall. The lightweight, portable, battery-operated projector has a futuristic, throw-back-feel and includes two blasters, which are stored right on the console, a built-in LED scoreboard, and a place to store the image slides. One of the things I like best about ProjeX is that it doesn't require a TV, computer, smart phone or any other equipment. The size of your wall is essentially the limit to the size of your play area. It's a nice break from our typical devices. The system is battery-powered so it can move around the house (or outside) allowing the kids to play on any blank wall, even the side of the house. The nature of target shooting lends itself to increased hand-eye coordination and the development of fine motor skills, an added bonus!
Projex has five different games and three skill levels making it fun for the whole family. A "beginner" setting accommodates even my little guy who is all to happy to join in the action with the big boys. You can play solo, head-to-head (perfect for competitive brothers!), or team up in "Co-Op" mode, which lets two players combine scores. An unlimited number of players can join in the fun so it helps eliminate (some of) the fighting.
I like the price point of $49.99, making ProjeX a great gift idea for most ages. The box isn't huge and the system is compact and lightweight. Best of all, it's easy to use, with just the right amount of sound and action.
