What are UFO catchers?
There are many kinds of UFO catchers. Basically, you use a single mechanical claw dangling inside controlled by a joystick or a pair of buttons to get what you want.
Many to Play
The cost to play depends on the prizes. Most of the games can allow you to choose 1 game only (like 200 yen per game) or more games at once for cheaper deals (like 500 yen for 6 games).
Many UFO catchers have snacks/candies for prizes and it’s relatively easy to get them,too. If you manage to break a mountain of snacks/candies, you can get more than what you pay for.
You can even win expensive prizes like Wii and PS3.
