Action Max Video Game System

The 1987 Worlds of Wonder Action Max video game was a revolutionary and short-lived "live action" VCR-based system. It allowed you to shoot at moving targets that play on a videotape through your television set. From the makers of the original Lazer Tag, the technology in Action Max seems to work the same way. A red light sensor, similar to the Lazer Tag Star Sensor, is stuck directly on the corner of the television screen to read where you are pointing and shooting the light gun. As you hit targets, the sensor lights up and the red LED counter on the Action Max game console goes up by one point. When you hit "civilian" or "friendly" targets, the score goes down by one point. The console has a built-in speaker that plays gunshots, ricochet sounds, and an ominous computerized voice that says, "Target Hit". Headphones and a special cord that connects from the VCR's or television's rca audio outputs into the console were included. These allowed you to hear Action Max in stereo without bothering others (aside from the click click clicking sound of the light gun and your shouts of frustration).

Worlds of Wonder only produced six videotape games for the Action Max before it was discontinued. I don't think this system lasted even a year before its utter failure. I saw an old Big Lots closeout store newspaper ad from November, 1988 that advertised the Action Max for only $14.99! Action Max games are ridiculously retro '80s fun, complete with terrible acting and canned rock music, which really adds a lot to the otherwise primitive and unspectacular game play. You can find Action Max systems and original videotape games on eBay. You may even be able to find DVD transfers of the Action Max videos floating around on the internet. Keep in mind that the Action Max requires a CRT television set and does not work on newer flat panel and projection TVs. Check out this short video we made of our Action Max playing a snippet from ".38 Ambush Alley"...
