Did anyone ever play this 1988 "system"? Looks damn cool, I'm going to have to pick one up.

Wow, talk about a rush of repressed memories! As soon as I saw that picture I remember my friend Joey having that system when I was a kid. I remember it not being very fun after a few minutes. Joey's folks ordered everything from QVC (Home Shopping Network) and I guarantee you this is where his model came from. I remember the Ninja game and a baseball game, but not much past that.

I hadn't thought about that thing in years, and I likely wouldn't have, had you not posted that Ter. Thanks!

Happy to help, lol! I BARELY remember this thing when it was new, but don't think I ever played one. I'd really like to find one, but there are none on eBay at the moment. Shouldn't be too hard too find for me though. After all, I found a Colorvision. :)

It is almost like Arcadia's Duck Hunt/Shoot game that Toys R' Us was selling years back but much cheaper and from the looks of it not as good.

The Toys R' Us one actually had colored pictures of ducks flying and would project around your whole room not just in one place either.

This one looks like something from Tiger Electronics or MGA.

I don't remember that one, do you have one or have a link? I'd love to see what it looks and plays like.

Ever since this thread I've been checking Ebay for the lightgames system to no avail.

I have never before seen such an interesting game system, the actual games are awful looking but the actual system concept is ahead of its time.

Thanks for the links, but for some reason I I want the Light Games projection system more.

I think its pretty cool myself, it would be a cool piece for any gaming collection.
I would probably have it on a shelf and wait for people to show interest then amaze them with the 80's goodness.
