-LAI Games will launch their latest two player game, High Five, at booth #611. High Five is designed for the younger children’s market, and features the same exciting game play as Speed of Light, but keeps it simple with an easy game concept of high-fiving the cabinet to score points. The cabinet features a bold and vibrant design that will appeal to younger players.
"Speed of Light is so much fun that we decided to bring the same high intensity game play to a younger age group. With High Five, kids get that two-player, energetic game play experience tailored to them in a flashy little cabinet, with the addition of rewarding, high-five hitting sound effects with each button press," said Shannon Perell, LAI Games' R&D Manager.
