At Halloween we had the opportunity to review 2 spooktacular games from Megableu, Creepy Hand and Ghost Hunt, and now another lovely bundle of family fun products have arrived to put to the test, just in time for Christmas.
After popping on your sensor goggles (which are adjustable for maximum comfort) and activating the electronic gun, the intergalatic adventure commences! Aliens appear as if by magic around your home and your objective is to find, shoot and destroy them. The player with the highest score wins.
It's a fast moving and active game and Jamster in particular enjoyed this as he likes the idea of being a hero and saving the world! You get a point for each alien shot but if you accidentally hit an innocent robot you lose a point so you really need to be focused during play. It's great for building concentration skills.
6 batteries are required, 3 AAA for both the goggles and gun, which aren't included but the on/off switch helps to reserve them when not in use. It's aimed at children aged 5+ and although you can play against others you can also play indepentanlty by trying to beat your previous score which is ideal if a child doesn't have siblings or friends around to join in.
Each session lasts 90 seconds and the final score will be displayed on the gun for you to view with ease. There are 4 cards included in the set which can be hidden in rooms to find and earn bonus points, 2 for each.
This game left me feeling rather nostalgic as it reminded me very much of my childhood and playing 'What's the time Mr Wolf' at school! You have to creep up on the cobra without being spotted and after 2 attempts the snake will pop up from the basket!
After loading the snake using the key provided, switching the toy on and setting the difficulty level, the cobras eyes will light up green meaning it's safe to approach, but if you move while they are red you will be spotted. The idea is to remove the emerald from the front of the basket without being seen and the player to do so wins.
Unlike any game I've seen before, this is based around patience and it's quite exciting for little ones to play due to the anticipation of the pop. We all found it quite amusing and jumped when it did spring from the basket!
4 AA batteries are required (not supplied) and it is aimed at children aged 5+. This too can be played alone or with friends/family. You can take it in turns to see who can remove the emerald first or play up to a certain score of your choice. It's best to use it on a table for the sensor to work correctly.
The aim of this game is to complete the challenges and collect the bottles... but prepare to get a little damp in the process. If you make a mistake the camel will spit!
Included in the box is the camel and base, 22 bottles and a pipette. It's easy to assemble and take apart again afterwards which is useful for storage. There are three challenges to play - a guessing game, speed game and memory game. For the first, a pattern of lights illuminate and you have to guess which flashed last by pressing that colour button. For the second, players have to remember and then repeat a light sequence. For the third, you must press the colours as they appear as fast as possible. If you win a challenge the camel will play a bottle opening sound and you can collect a bottle from the crate. If you make a mistake you will get sprayed with water and the other players can collect a bottle instead.
The challenges are repeated until no bottles are left in the crate. The camel will sometimes throw bottles out at random so you need to react quickly and collect them for bonus points. The player with the most bottles will be the winner at the end.
3 AA batteries are needed for this and 1-4 players can play aged 5 or over, although it may be suitable for those a little younger too I feel. The Mini Mes really like the competitive and challenging aspects of this game and we have since purchased one for a friend that also liked to play this!
I love how the games from Megableu that we received aren't your standard board games, they seem to be very unique and far more appealing. The Mini Mes have requested to get these out several times to play since their arrival. All 5 get a thumbs up from us.
