Monster Catcher makes its way to FECS and arcades
Monster Catcher is Andamiro USA’s newest ticket redemption title, and the second title developed exclusively for family entertainment centres and arcades.
Monster Catcher starts with a saucer-shaped spaceship unloading the game’s alien creatures. There are seven distinct, strange-looking monsters and each represents the same number of difficulty levels in gameplay. With every increasingly challenging catch attempt, the player can win more tickets. If the player squeezes successful catches at all seven levels, they win the super bonus.
The videogame’s objective and interface are simple. When a monster is dropped, the player presses a button to try to catch it between two round paddles. Success is all about timing. At each sequential monster level, the drop height increases, the space between the paddles widens and the paddle sizes get smaller — calling for greater hand-eye coordination as the game advances.
“While I wasn’t surprised, it was certainly reassuring to have operators and distributors agree that Monster Catcher was one of the best values making a debut at the IAAPA Attractions Expo,” said Andamiro USA Senior Sales Director Tony Maniscalco. “Our first Monster Catcher containers this year quickly sold out, and we expect demand to remain strong throughout the year.”
Monster Catcher possesses a slender footprint, measuring 35” wide by 34” deep by 100” high and is equipped with a 55″ high-def LCD.
