    The game is enjoyable and somewhat addictive, but it's not the original. I can't connect fully to the experience. It's a dim looking-glass view of the past, which, in the present, is simply not the same.

    Taken as a bit of throwaway fun at Christmas, or passed around on an iPad at family events, there's something to be said for grabbing Bop It! Smash, especially as it's a free download. As a solo endeavor though, the rather simplistic gameplay, single game mode, and occasional hardware jitters make this game a rather difficult one to wholeheartedly recommend.

    As a free game, it's worth looking into as a fun little time waster, but you may tire of it before long.

    Bop It! Smash isn't a bad game. It's a different take on a popular formula, albeit one that holds less appeal and staying power than the original.
