Lazer Tag Gets An iDevice Upgrade

By David Ponce

They sure as hell didn’t have cool toys like this when I was a kid. We had to play laser tag wearing body suits almost half as heavy as we were and pay through the nose for the privilege. Kids of today will get to enjoy a better, iDevice enhanced version of the game. Hasbro will be releasing the Lazer Tag Blaster gun (1 player) and Lazer Tag 2 Blaster set (2 players) that feature an iPhone slot at the top. With the related application launched, players will have an HUD giving them an augmented reality view of the game. In one player mode, you can shoot virtual enemies while in two or more player mode (up to 24 simultaneous players supported), you can keep track of ammo, score and the location of your enemies. You can even shoot them from as far away as 250ft. “A virtual leaderboard keeps track of each player’s profile and, with every successful mission, players will gain in-game access to upgradeable attacks, missions and gear.”

The summer’s just around the corner and the Lazer Tag Blaster guns should be available August 1st for $40 for the single gun or $70 for 2.

  1. $70 may be a pretty good deal considering that it’s integrated with the “i” device. Lazer Tag was one of the fun toys I wanted when I was a kid. Sadly, We couldn’t avail of those during that said time. If I had kids one day and there’s a new lazer tag, I’m going to make sure that he gets one.
