LAI Games, Hypershoot arcade game, arcade basketball game DALLAS -- LAI Games has introduced two redemption games, Hypershoot and Let's Bounce. Both are designed to appeal to players of all ages, and to encourage group competition. According to the manufacturer, their performances in test locations indicates that they may prove to be among the hottest amusement devices of 2017. The new arcade games debuted at the recent IAAPA Attractions Expo in Orlando, FL.

Hypershoot is described as a reinvention of arcade basketball, featuring an interactive "light tunnel" and a novel illuminated hoop design enhanced by live sports commentary. The light tunnel surrounds the playfield; during play, it senses the ball and mirrors its trajectory to generate a comet-tail effect. As each successive basket is scored, the hoop rim powers up, indicating a player is on a streak and will earn extra points per basket. Scoring hoops in quick succession allows skilled players to pull ahead of the pack. Up to eight units can be linked for a striking light display.

When space is limited, the twin cabinet configuration complements classic midway games, including alley bowlers and knockdowns. Hypershoot allows for optional bonus tickets for linked gameplay, and accommodates an optional deluxe marquee. Hypershoot stands 113.39" H., with a footprint 43.07" W. x 122.05" D.

Let's Bounce challenges players to control each of 20 balls bouncing across a playfield inset with 45 illuminated "tiles" to the musical accompaniment of Bizet's Carmen overture (said to be "room-shaking"). The object is to bounce on each tile, which responds by changing color.

Single players compete against the clock to hit all the tiles and enter the mini bonus round, which offers a chance to win extra tickets and beat the high score. Two players go head to head on each round to beat the clock by launching all their balls and getting the highest score. According to the manufacturer, Let's Bounce is easy to play but difficult to master. The game is 103.94" H. and occupies a space 48.03" W. x 122.05" D.

Both LAI titles incorporate a universal connector link and can accept card systems, bill validators and coin mechanisms. They're predrilled for Embed's point-of-sale card terminal.

LAI Games is a subsidiary of Helix Leisure. The group, which consists of game development, automated locker rental and payment system companies, has been a leader in arcade amusements for more than half a century.
