SEGA’s UFO Balance Catcher Arcade Game Puts Those Wii Balance Board Skills To Good Use

SEGA’s UFO Balance Catcher Arcade Game Puts Those Wii Balance Board Skills To Good Use

By Andrew Liszewski

SEGA’s original UFO Catcher game was introduced way back in 1986 and used conventional ‘claw game’ controls, but this new version, which premiered last week in Japan, features a balance board/rocker platform requiring you to move your body in order to guide the claw mechanism to your desired prize. And instead of it being a one-shot deal, there’s actually a time limit letting you make as many attempts as you can, and you can even get a time extension by rocking back and forth on the platform like a madman, filling up a meter which freezes the countdown when it’s full. I’ve included a video of the game in action below, but you might want to turn your speakers down a bit because the background music has already given me a headache.
