EDITOR'S REVIEW

All the fun of the original game,but in a smaller more portable version. In fact several of our testers prefer this to the original game.

WHAT THE KIDS SAY

Aleeza

Small, fun, easy to use and the colours are easy to see. It only has 2 games on it, but they are challenging. The instructions are easy to follow. Since you actually have to push the colour down rather than touch it, it doesn't say that you pressed a colour when you didn't. It is not hard to figure out how to play, but it doesn't tell you what happens when you win so I don't know whether there are more levels or not. I find it annoying that you are not able to change or turn off the volume. It is nice that it is small and that it automatically turns off.

It's fun to follow the pattern of lights, I don't have to worry about the sound or what it says. It's small and it fits in my hands comfortably. Mia ( 12 ) is very good but I can beat her at this game!

I love this game because I like pressing buttons and it is challenging to memorize the pattern of the colours that simon tells me to press. It is easy to play and I love the size. It fits in my hand and I can carry it everywhere.

This was so much fun. I like it because it is portable and you can carry it anywhere with you. We took it in the car and to the cottage. I like that you can play by yourself or with another person. You have to count the levels yourself when you are done but that was fun too. I like that it has a lot of levels and it keeps getting harder and harder!

I really like this game but it's really hard. I'm getting better at it because I've been playing it every day. My mom thought she was the best at this game until I beat her a few times. I have the champion title now and no one's taking it from me!!

WHAT ADULTS THINK

Who doesn't know and love the Simon game? It's a classic and this Micro Series delvers a compact, take anywhere version, making it perfect for long car rides! This newest edition offers a solo playing mode and a multi-player "pass it" one. It's challenging and fun game, a hit with kids and adults alike.

definitely a toy that i would buy for other kids for birthday's or Christmas. I really like the size so you take up less space. i would not opt to buy the bigger version. The small one is the better deal and you do the same activity.

A great throwback to the original Simon Game! And a fun portable game. The Micro Simon works well for individuals or a two person game. Just like in the original game, you can level up by continuing to memorize the pattern of colours and repeat them back. You game ends when you can no longer repeat the pattern. Simon will let you count the levels you made it to. There is an automatic off button when the game has not been used for several minutes (no manual off button - which has caused the game to automatically start when it has been in the car and accidentally brushed up against).

Same fun game as it always was but in a better travel size. It is a bit loud for me and it would have been nice to have the ability to adjust it but we haven't figured out a way to do so. Otherwise, a good game. I like that you can play solo or with a friend.

Mia (12) really liked that it was small and easy to carry, Kaï (11) liked that we could play together in elimination rounds, and he found it easy to follow as there is not only sound but flashing colours.

Sylvie S.

Another awesome travel size game and so much harder than I remember it as a child. Very challenging and requires concentration, as well as a good memory. You can play it solo or in teams. Great size, fits well in the hand, not awkward at all. Unlike what I remember from the original SIMON game (from at least 25-30 years ago), this one seems to have a different twist on the game where you can play as a team or individually. I recommend this game to everyone.

Definitely a toy that i would buy for other kids for birthday's or Christmas. i would not opt to buy the bigger version. The small one is the better deal and you do the same activity. I loved this game when I was a kid and now my own children love it too. When I was a kid I just loved pressing buttons. Now I can appreciate the value of this game and I actually encourage my kids to stay challenged with Simon. I like the size of this game too. You can carry it everywhere and just enjoy it. It won't take up too much space to tidy up and store.

Go mobile with the Simon Micro Series game! This compact version of the classic Simon game is just like the game you already know. Watch the lights and remember how they go so you can repeat every sequence for the win. Play alone in Solo mode or play with friends in Pass It mode, but either way the Simon Action with this Micro Series game is going to be epic!
