The Vampire Bat Hunt game turns your living room into a dark dingy cave, while arming you with an infrared pistol with which to go all Indy Jones on an annoying flying toy. The blaster has a 20 foot range, the ‘bat’ has a 30 second flight time on one charge, the cat has a pancake. A recipe for tantrums at bedtime. $29.95.
A 10-second charge on the barrel of the blaster animates the bat with sinister energy for a 30-second flight. The bat’s 6″ long mylar wings flap up and down nearly 500 times per minute, and it can be set to fly in an erratic left- or right-turning circle or a level, straight line. Sharp-eyed vampire hunters take aim with the infrared blaster–the first two hits merely stun the fell creature, momentarily interrupting its flapping; the third hit downs it for good.
