Kriss Sport, a Polish developer of reflex/physical games like boxing machines has released a new competitive reflex game to markets in Europe, Japan and North America called Catch The Light. This is similar to the premise behind LAI’s popular Speed of Light redemption game, although setup in a way that makes it easier to compete with another player. As a head-to-head table it looks easy for kids or adults to play and it looks pretty cool in the dark. While the main focus for this will probably be redemption, they mention “ticket ready” which means not required, so a location could set it up for entertainment/competition-only if they so choose. Topped of with “8-bit retro music”, it’s a good package that also is pretty affordable. One of the site sponsors here, BMI Gaming, lists it for $2375 which is well below Speed of Light’s near $9000 price tag.
Here’s a video of the game in action:
They also have a second model called Neuron Race. It’s the same thing conceptually, just in a different art package (using TRON-style neon art, which is fitting).
