I’m not sure why I find Bop It! games so irresistible, but I do. Hasbro just sent me the newest edition: Bop It! Tetris so now I have every single Bop It! game.
Bop It! Tetris is a game in which players slide, spin, and slam to complete Tetris-style puzzles as fast as they can. If you remember the iconic Tetris theme song, you’ll hear it in this game too!
There are two panel screens opposite each other and when squares appear on one side, you match them up with open spaces on the other side by moving them back and forth or rotating them. When the shapes can fit, slam them into place by pushing in the side of the game.
The concept is simple, but it’s a timed game so you have to to think fast and react quickly!
As with all Bop It! games there’s a voice that will cheer for you on great moves and mildly tease you when you goof up. (If you don’t want to hear it, you can adjust the volume all the way down to silent.)
The longer you keep playing, the harder the puzzles get and the shorter the time you have to react will be. It’s exhilarating when you’re on a roll!
There are 2 games: solo Marathon (my favorite) and the Pass It party game where everyone takes turns slamming the shapes. When the announcer commands “Pass it!” you hand the game to the next person. There 4 levels of play within the games: Drop, Blast, Double Drop and Shuffle. I’m not even close to thefast and furious stages yet!
The game operates on 3 AAA batteries (sample batteries included), and it has an auto shut-off when not in use.
