As many people already know, the appBlaster has already been introduced here at zoolert.com, but thanks to Spin Master we have been able to get our hands on this cool new blaster to review for all of our fellow zoolert fans! The appBalster is for kids ages 8 and up and is a great accessory of any iPod or iPhone. The appBlaster set comes with one appBlaster with a removable stock, one iPod touch insert plate, one iPhone insert plate, one mounting bracket, and one instruction manual. The set is $19.99 MSRP and the appBlaster is compatible with any iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPod Touch 4th gen.
Here I will not get too much into the details of the set because we have already talked about the set in a separate blog, but instead I will be talking more about the pros and cons of this toy. First let’s start off with the cons. The appBlaster App does get little annoying because a pop up appears telling you to purchase other apps, you can always (X) out of the App but I find it to be annoying. The appBlaster technically does not have a reloading system, what you have to do is quickly tilt back the gun to reload, this does bug me a little when I am shooting aliens all around me. Other than those minor problems I have with the gun I do find it to be a lot of fun especially when you challenge your friends to see who can receive a higher score! The appBlaster comes with a lot of accessories and I never had to worry about the iPhone falling out of the case because it was tightly locked inside of the appBlaster case. The appBlaster also has a cool and unique twist that makes this gun fun and addicting. The appBlaster has 360 viewing so you can turn around anywhere you would like and you can still use the appBlaster, but my favorite part about the gun is the background you play the game on. The appBlaster uses the environment you are playing in as the background, so anytime you are in your house and you use the appBlaster your house will be used as the background of the game. This makes it cool to see your couch, bed or any room in the house turn into an infested alien hive! The AppBlaster is a cool new Accessory that turns an ordinary shooting game into a fun survival shooting game for any kid!
