Setting It Up

When it comes to setting up the Pop-A-Shot Home Dual Shot it is as easy as it comes for such a system. The instructions are clear and simple to follow, however it still takes time. If you are setting this up with your son, daughter or a friend it will still take you about an hour if you are fast and about an hour and a half if you take a couple of break.

What’s great about this game is once you have finished playing around with it, it does not take that much space. You can tuck the ramp in as seen in the image below and it will barely take any space.

Available Games

In total there are 16 games available.


The controls for the game are conveniently placed at the base of the ramp for easy access. There are 4 buttons with which you can control everything from starting a game, selecting a game as well as controlling the audio sounds and the volume for them.
