ProjeX Arcade Game Review

I was thrilled to be offered the opportunity to try the ProjeX Image Projecting Arcade Game. After months of being stuck inside, I was happy for the chance for my kids to try something new. As it turned out, we love this game!

ProjeX doesn’t require a TV to play. You can use any blank wall space. And, lucky for us, we repainted last year and never got around to hanging up pictures and stuff, so we have plenty of blank wall space.

It looks super cool in the dark!

To try it, we used Kevin’s room. We have room darkening blinds in there. It worked perfectly! We could all sit on his bed and play the game on the wall.

The targets explode when you hit them and make a cool sound.

You really kinda feel like you’re at an arcade on the boardwalk or something. And since it doesn’t look like that is going to be happening for us this summer due to the pandemic, I’m happy for this alternative.

I love that it is something that we can all do as a family. It’s not overly simplified to meet Kevin’s abilities, which sometimes happens, and then Brian gets bored. And, I get intimidated by our other video game console, and it takes up the TV when I want to watch it. This does not.

Reasons to Love ProjeX

  1. All Abilities: It is easy enough for my disabled son to manipulate and play. But not too simple that my other child gets bored. Finally a video game they can play together. It has an “old school” feel to it, so I wasn’t overwhelmed as a Gen Xer parent., as I can be with his other video games.
  2. Affordable: Most retailers are selling it for $40-$50, so much cheaper than other video games.
  3. Portable and Lightweight: It uses batteries, so it’s portable. This would be awesome to take camping! You could project it on the side of the tent. This summer we used it outside at night, on the side of the house.
  4. Looks cool: We like the colors and the sounds. It looks very cool in a dark room.
  5. Easy set up: We just put in the batteries and turned it on. Very intuitive to set up and use.
  6. Works a variety of skills: From fine motor to hand/eye coordination, this game encourages kids to use a variety of skill sets.
  7. Non-violent: I don’t like shooting games that involve my kids trying to shoot another person. Not cool at all. This game uses targets, not people.
  8. It doesn’t require a TV: My son’s other video game console is on our main TV. This often means that I end up listening to games that I really don’t want to listen to. Or, he wants to play while I want to watch TV. This eliminates that.

While recommended for children 6+, ProjeX™ is great for any age child, as well as adults.
