TF2010: Mattel Press Release - Games|
2010 Fact Sheet
This year, Mattel introduces new games for a new generation. Featuring completely innovative ways of testing trivia knowledge and memory skills ? such as Loopz? and Bezzerwizzer?, to new formats of old favorites ? including To Go! Games, UNO? Mod and Mattel Card Games; the 2010 line-up is sure to please kids and adults looking for entertaining new game play experiences.
Loopz? is an interactive memory game consisting of four independent semi-circular rings, or ?loopz.? Combining music, motion and memory, this game really gets people moving as they match the patterns of light and sound by motioning their hands through the rings as different patterns emerge. As each ring pulsates, players must quickly put their hand through the lit loop to keep the music sequence going. Sound tones and lights continue to lead to more difficult and exciting challenges. An internal counter keeps track of time, completed levels and rates overall performance. Loopz has seven different games and can be played solo or as ?head-to-head? competition.
