MARKHAM, ON, Canada -- Now available from Universal Space is Funfair Bash, a game that challenges young players to throw softballs at a variety of targets displayed in a succession of environments on a 47" video screen. All the scenes are reminiscent of classic arcade games long popular in carnival sidestalls.
As in many traditional ball-centric amusements for which fairs are famous, Funfair Bash rewards success in a number of skills, from hitting targets in motion to striking a specific area of an immobile target -- all while a countdown timer is running. The scenes include clown tumblers and juggling clown, milk bottles, rolling barrels and a spinning wheel; the level of difficulty increases as the player moves from one scene to the next. Accurate location of a throw is rewarded with tickets, and the more rapidly hits are scored, the more tickets are won.
Funfair Bash is styled to resemble a mechanical ball-toss game, with transparent side panels to retain the balls in the play area and a bin below the control console to receive balls returned from the playfield. The colorful cabinet stands 94" high and measures 82.75" D. x 32.625" W.; it is styled with eye-catching LED signage on its highly visible header. It runs on 110VAC, consuming a maximum of 450W.
