To acknowledge the fact that Father's Day is coming up and kids quickly grow up and see their parents in a different light, NERF France created a fun 8-bit game called 'Be a Hero Again.' Unlike many video games, this one is expressly targeted at parents and provides them with a chance to once more become "cool" in the eyes of their children.
The NERF France game gives players the chance to control either a mother or a father avatar, who must gain the respect of their kids by shooting NERF darts at targets and all the while, avoid the traps in the suburban backyard.
While playing the game, players will want to challenge themselves to get a high score, as they have the chance to earn real-world discount codes for the NERF range.
