This article features a Nerf-related subject.

Nerf Jr. Foam Blaster: Attack of the Kleptons! is a Nerf video game that was released on November 9th, 1999 under the Nerf Jr. series.

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.

Gameplay

The primary game-play 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.

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 - the player must take down their forces before the world's Nerf is gone! Luckily, Mr. Fish, a genius goldfish, is there to supply them with new liquid Nerf-based weapons on your journey.

The game ends with the kids and Mr. Fish victorious, stopping the Klepton's evil plan. An ending card is shown, followed by a question mark, ending the game on a cliffhanger.

Trivia

  • The opening sequence is a parody of the "gun barrel sequence" famously seen in movies based on Ian Fleming's James Bond novels.
  • In the game's commercial, there is a Magnetor that has a claw instead of a magnet.[citation needed]
  • The Magnetor enemy is the only one that has two walking cycle animations, instead of just one.
  • Unlike other Nerf video games, which featured a mixture of real and fictional blasters, Nerf Jr. Foam Blaster: Attack of the Kleptons! does not feature any real Nerf blasters.
