Mattel Loopz: if Simon Married Merlin and Had a Kid

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…

Hey, Look at That: Drum Hero

Hey, Look at That: Drum Hero
Activision has a real obsession with heroes… at least, the musical kind. They’ve just filed a trademark for Drum Hero. But can’t we pound on plastic drums already? In several different ways? I guess it really needs its own brand. Of course, a new trademark doesn’t mean the game is…

Rumored LEGO Rock Band Game is Actually Real

Rumored LEGO Rock Band Game is Actually Real
It sounded like something from a Penny Arcade panel, but in reality, it’s the newest Rock Band game: LEGO Rock Band, complete with minifig musicians with blocky little instruments.

Let’S Tap: the Game You Play With a Box

Let’S Tap: the Game You Play With a Box
Let’s just put it on the table: Let’s Tap is a game about beating out a rhythm on a cardboard box. It’s dashboard drumming tuned to a purpose; you tap, and (weird, psychedelic) things happen on screen. You don’t use the controller directly, but instead, it sits on the box…

Robot Drummer has Plenty of Rhythm
This little yellow robot does one thing really well. He likes to play drums. What’s funny about the little guy is that he likes to play music on just about any surface other than an actual drum. The Yellow Drum Machine drives around the room looking for things that might…

Bubblegum Sequencer Chews Through Tunes

Bubblegum Sequencer Chews Through Tunes
This music sequencer takes the same basic interface concept as the ball bearing sequencer I recently showed you, and makes it deliciously chewable. Instead of shiny metal spheres, this sequencer uses a bunch of colorful candy-coated gumballs to make a beat you can dance to.   Designed by Hannes Hesse,…
