This review is from: Bop It! Smash (colours may vary) (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Well, where to begin? This is a new spin-off product for people who love the original Bop It - the major difference here is form factor; there are just the two ends to hit at the appropriate time. The smaller yellow lights move towards the big blue centre-light and when it lights up, you have to push the ends towards the centre - Smash it! is the perennial saying the unit spews at you. The levels ramp up in speed and reaction-time, playing catchy music and a miss will cost you a life, you have three lives and replenish them by hitting the big-blue. You also get points for a near-miss - there is a green light either side of the big-blue.

Then there's multiplayer, that counts your scores separately and asks you to pass the unit at certain points, some people can end up with only one Smash it! But others may get longer, it's a great party piece. The one major complaint I have is that the unit does not have an off/lock button, meaning it springs into life with its insanely-American commentator any time it is bumped (which is a lot given the fact the ends are the most prominent part and also turn the thing on!) and you have to wait until the commentator announces loudly "I'm going to sleep!!"

It's fun - for a while, but gets difficult quickly and this really is only for people who already own Bop It because it's a minor variation on the game and inferior in my opinion. So if you're a Bop-it fan and tired of the game, this might breathe some more life into the franchise. However, if you're looking for a hand-held reflex-based electronic game, just buy the original!
