Badge-Nerf

Nerf Jr. Foam Blaster: Attack of the Kleptons is a Nerf video game that was released on November 9th, 1999. Developed by Hasbro Interactive for the PC, it utilized a special light gun that resembled a regular Nerf blaster. This accessory was used to shoot the robotic Kleptons, the game's antagonists.

Plot

The alien Kleptons are planning to take over the world's Nerf supply using, oddly enough, a washing machine. After picking a playable character out of the choice of three kids, Taro Wada, Manny Silva, and Nikki Tache, you must take down their forces before the world's Nerf is gone! Luckily, Mr. Fish, a genius goldfish, is there to supply you with new weapons on your journey.

In the end, the kids and Mr. Fish prove victorious over the Kleptons, followed by a "The End" title card. But a question mark appears, making it a cliffhanger ending.

Gameplay

The primary gameplay consists of many arcade-style games where the player uses the included light gun (or keyboard and mouse) to shoot the Kleptons in different situations. One segment, for example, has the player firing at disguised Kleptons while trying not to shoot humans, and others may have the player simply firing away at any Kleptons on screen.
