The object of the game is to respond quickly to the game’s commands. Pull the blue knob to turn on the unit. Pull the blue knob again to select which game mode to play. Twist the yellow knob to adjust the volume. The unit will go to sleep after a few seconds of inactivity. Pull the blue knob to wake it up.
When you are ready to begin, press the bop it button to start. The Solo game is for 1 player. That player holds the unit and responds to the commands that are called out. When “Pull it” is said, you pull the blue knob. When “twist it” is said, you twist the yellow knob. When “bop it” is said, you press the white bop it button. The game will slowly speed up the longer you go. Once you mess up or are too slow, you’re out and the game ends. The unit will tell you your score. Play again to try and beat the high score. If you reach 100, you’ve beaten the game. Remove the batteries to reset the high score.
The pass it game mode is for more than 1 player. All the same rules apply except there is the new command “pass it”. When you hear that, you hand the game unit to another player. Whoever messes up is eliminated from the game. Press the bop it to continue playing with the remaining players until there is only 1 player left, then that player is the winner.
You can also play each of these game modes with the harder beat bop mode. In beat bop mode, the commands are sound effects instead of words. The bass drum sound… means bop it. the ratchet sound… means twist it. And the whistle sound… means pull it.
