(Pocket-lint) - Kids don't want simple any more. As so we find ourselves reviewing Bop it Extreme 2 an advanced version of Simon Says. So popular it seems was the first version by Hasbro, that they couldn't resist updating and creating another. But has it got what it takes to entertain your kids without driving you mad? we locked up a group of brats to find out.
To put it mildly this game is as addictive as fast food for both children and adults.
The idea is simple. The game, depending on which mode you select, screams instructions at you to either pull, twist, flick or spin one of the four nozzles at the end of the four legs. The better you do, the faster the music and instructions get. The aim is to follow the instructions for as long as you can without pausing for too long. Pause and it's game over.
To increase the longevity of the device there are four different music styles to beat to; Pop, Rock, Latin, R&B. Furthermore there a number of different game modes to chose from. Solo, one-on-one and group. The single is just you against the music while the one-on-one and group give you time to pass the device around a group of friends.
While inherently simple the game is actually very addictive as you (for some reason) need to beat your previous score.
Addictive but great fun
