Pokapon Dx: Wigs a Poppin’!

Pokapon Dx: Wigs a Poppin’!
We here in the U.S. might have had Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots when we were kids, but in Japan back in 1979, they had a little game called Pokapon. Instead of knocking off your opponent’s block like in Rock ‘Em Sock’ Em, the objective of Pokapon was to beat your friend senseless until their wig flies off their head. Now, there’s a 21st century update to Pokapon, simply called Pokapon DX.

Mattel Loopz: if Simon Married Merlin and Had a Kid
Music pattern-matching games like Guitar Hero owe a lot to the early electronic games of the 1970s like Simon and Merlin. Now Mattel is back with a brand new music game which feels like a modern homage to the classics. Instead of pushing buttons like the old games, LOOPZ uses a set of infrared beam sensors to detect when you place your hand through four semi-circular rings.
