Review of Projex Arcade Game

Hello and thank you for joining me today as I review this fun arcade game with my daughter Kathleen.
I received this video game for free to review and give my honest opinion and it's the perfect time with this quarantine to do so! Projex comes with all the items you see above and two people can play or a person can just play solo. It runs on 3 AAA batteries (not included) and does not include a power cord. I like the idea of being able to play it outside or inside without having to worry about plugging in a cord.

We initially tried it outside on our shed wall, but quickly realized it needs to be a darker area in order for the target to show up properly to play the game, so we moved inside and closed some blinds to check it out!

       In this picture Kathleen is intently getting the target focused on the wall before the game begins.

This is a picture of her holding the trigger as she is trying to follow the target and score points. Our cats were quite intriqued as it uses a blue and red lazer to project on the wall and connect with the targets, so they were playing along as well, lol. The triggers light up to let you know they are ready to go.

This is to give you an example of how it lights up and shows the different levels you can choose. It also will keep score for each player. I do recommend having a large blank wall area with not a lot of furniture or pictures in the way as it hinders the scoring. This game includes 5 different built in games that really help test your speed and skills. It starts off at a beginner's level and moved through advanced. We tried all the levels and it definitely gets more challenging.

It has 2 different slides you can plug in to play and you can blast ducks or  UFO's. Also the slides change your levels of difficulty. For example blue (targets) is easy, red (UFO's) is medium and white (ducks) is difficult. They also each have their own sound effects.

You can play this game alone, head to head or even have a choice to do a Co-Op where 2 players team up and combine the scores. It gives you the feel of participating in a tournament even with no one else needs to be around. You have the option to try and beat your own score! The triggers you need to pull back and reload after firing off about 6 shots. So it adds in the excitement of doing it quickly so you can score more points in the game.

Here is a view of the console and next to it is the 3 game levels you can choose in the different colors. Very easy to insert and remove. The triggers plug in easily either one or both at a time.

The targets move quickly but I was able to get a few shots on the wall to give you an idea of what they look like. This was a target that Kathleen hit with her trigger.

Our other cat was intently watching this UFO go by and at times they were also trying to catch it. So if you have any cats at home, it's plus for them too. ;-)

 The next couple photos just show how it has a LED lighting display and it lights up to choose levels, the scoring, etc. You will need a table for the projector and at least 5 feet away from the wall. The red button is the power button and you have 45 seconds to adjust the focus of the targets before getting started. Then you just press the red button again to select which game to play 1-5. The blue button selects the level at which you desire to play.

As you see here one of the targets is on the chair, but it didn't work when trying to shoot it as it needs to be a flat, plain surface.

Overall it was a fun game to play and Kathleen is already talking about playing it with her friends soon. This game retails for $49.99 and you can find it at both Target and Walmart. Enjoy!
