The classic game of “Simon” or “Simon Says” is a memory testing game in which you have to repeat a sequence of colors (usually the colors red, blue, green and yellow) chosen randomly by Simon. With each correct answer, the sequence gets longer and more difficult. While dozens of “Simon” games exist in the app store, most of them are exactly the same. “Repeat”, a game by Francis Bonnin, takes the general Simon concept and takes it to the next level by adding tons of customizable features as well as a multiplayer option.
The goal of the game is to repeat the ever growing sound/color sequences that you are shown. In the original game, there are four possible choices/buttons in the patterns, but in Repeat you can choose anywhere from 2-8 buttons, depending on the level of difficulty you want. It is also possible to customize the sequence, meaning the order in which you must repeat the pattern. For instance, if you set the sequence to reversed, then you have to repeat Simon’s pattern in reverse order, making it even more challenging. With many different types of sequences to choose from, a whole new dimension is added to the game. Along with these customizable options more, the game features a multiplayer mode as well as online challenges that are updated daily.
Repeat does have some drawbacks, namely the sound quality and the graphics. During the game, the noises made by the different buttons aren’t exactly beautiful and can become annoying very quickly. Also, the graphics in this game are nothing special and for the most part are pretty boring. That being said, in a game like this graphics are not really too important.
Overall, this game is pretty good, and probably the best of its kind due to its numerous features that present countless different challenges. I would recommend this game to anyone looking for a Simon game to pass the time or to improve memory skills. However, for those not willing to pay the 1$, there are several free Simon games in the app store that aren’t bad.
