Only in America, and only during the 1980s. LJN’s Entertech line (1986 – 1990) was hugely popular, and might’ve saved its parent company if not for all the cops shooting kids holding realistic-looking weapons. All toy guns were required to be fit with an orange tip starting in 1989.

Photon was the first laser tag unit to be sold commercially (1986), followed almost immediately by the Lazer Tag brand (released by Worlds of Wonder). Both were out of business by 1990.

LJN also produced a Gotcha! The Sport! NES game and paintball gun in 1987, based on the 1985 movie.

There were several memorable commercials for Entertech products. I’ll dig some up.
