This movie explains how game system laser guns work. Yes, I noticed how there is a repeated text at the end.

explains how light-guns work

this was informative and has its merits

but not allot of effort went into this


somwhat common knowledge, but I did learn a bit, you should have considered adding music or sound effects though, and it may have been a more effective presentation as a movie, rather than a "semi-slideshow".

Uh... interesting!

I never knew that video games guns were camera based. This is definitely a unique entry for it's time. The graphics are horrid and the buttons barely work, but the concept itself is excellent, and I actually learned something, too.


WEll, this did deliver what it promised, as I actually wasn't positive how those laser guns work. On that level, it was indeed informative. The reason this gets a 1 from me and not a 4+ is simple though. The graphics were overall pretty poor, although there were a couple okay shots. The backgrounds were pretty boring, there was very little animation, and there was no sound. In a flash like this, there is absolutely no excuse not to use sound.
