Simon Says . . . Simon Says . . . I just know there was a cartoon that had a villain who used to say "Simon Says (insert victimization statement here like 'Freeze!')" Was it Super Friends? Underdog? It was some weird-ass Hanna Barbaric entertainment. I just can't remember.
Anyway, I was unable to bribe my son into playing this game with me, but since there is a kitty cat on the Überlay I was able to get my three year old daughter to want to play it. Now if only she'd stop wanting to play it. Heh, just kidding. We really have a good time with it together.
"Simon" draws a card and says "Simon Says find (body part indicated on card)" and the players have to move their Player Spots to the corresponding body part on the Überlay. The person who gets there first gets to keep the card, the person with the most cards wins. Simon can be tricky and sometimes not say "Simon Says" but that just made my kid confused and miserable. We did have some nice primordial videogame bonding going on with this, even though we didn't actually play an official game. I'll go out on a limb and say that this one doesn't suck, and my daughter has asked to play it again so many times that I'm going to give it a full point as I think she'd rather play this than watch Ultraman. Of course, she'd rather watch the Bugaloos than watch Ultraman. Given that she's pretty much the target demographic of this game, (young child) I'll score it based on her opinion, not mine.
EDIT: I forgot to mention that if the person who draws the card doesn't say "Simon Says" then no one is supposed to move. We didn't play this way because I didn't want to start "faking out" my daughter until she was about four.
The Score: Ultraman: 6, Odyssey: 5.00
Not sure, but I think that takes care of all games that actually came with the Odyssey Console. I'll start talking about the Shooting Gallery next.
