Light guns are very popular in arcade games, but had not caught on as well in the home video game console market until after the Nintendo Entertainment System , Sega Master System, Mega Drive/Genesis, and Super Nintendo. Nevertheless, many home 'Pong' systems of the 70s included a pistol or gun for shooting simple targets on screen. Traditional light guns cannot be used on the newer LCD and plasma screens, and have problems with projection screens. The NES Zapper, also known as the Beam Gun in Japan, is an electronic light gun accessory for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and the Japanese Famicom. It was released in Japan for the Famicom on February 18, 1984 (1984-02-18) and alongside the launch of the NES in North America in October 1985. The Famicom version of the Zapper, made for the game Wild Gunman, resembled a revolver-style handgun, but the North American version resembled a futuristic science fiction ray gun.
