well, i remember this when i went with my mom shopping for a videogame console waaaay back when...the sales rep demoed it to us and i remember using the gun but then the video didn''t change to an exploding jet fighter despite me having already "supposedly" blasted it with my gun (excuse me for the very crude idea i had during my formative years) and immediately it was a let down as i had seen the msx in a different store before this. the msx was tons way better because you could control it (even though the graphics was just 8-bits), unlike this one(which has real life video, but not interactive).ultimately we got the Famicom/NES

Allison''s Written Words

My brother and I got this for Christmas in 1987, when we were five years old. The concept sounded pretty cool when you''re too young to understand video games (especially for those of us born in the 1980s). But yes, I remember it not working well, and the expectation that actually shooting something would generate a reaction from the video. It must have been on its way out by the time we got it, because we only received one additional game (aside from the pack-in game), The Rescue of Pops Ghostly. Judging by the video I saw on You Tube...It''s almost no wonder that WoW went out of business, they must really have believed kids are dumb.

$i$Due to the linear nature of the games, targets appeared in the same places every single time, making memorization of "enemy" locations a real issue.$/i$

Doesn''t this apply to pretty much every light gun game?

I recieved this piece of junk for my 6th birthday in 1987. I remember the Pops Ghostly game.

I have two of these things and they can be easily recreated by getting out any kind of gun and pointing it at the screen shooting anything that moves.
Yeah its that bad. Its so bad its very very bad

I had one of these too when they came out. I bought a game called something like "Pops Ghostly" where you shot a ghost in an a mansion. It really sucked. BTW, I also had a lazertag kit too lol.

I had one of these briefly, and after about a week or so, I realized it was a big mistake and returned it. The sonic fury game got old pretty quick, and the system only had like 5 games for it.

I remember getting this system as an early teen when it was on sale at Toys 'R' Us and I had a gift certificate (it was something like $80 - $100). Boy was I dissapointed! It's a simple and repetitive target game and it HAS NOT held up well to the ravages of time. The gun broke with little use and the suction cup for the TV sensor became hopelessly warped! Not a fun system and not a good collectible except for the most die-hard...
