The origins of the Simon color game date back to the 1980s. This handheld game was simple: repeat a pattern using sequences of four colors directly after it is shown to you. Those with photographic memories were masters at this game. I, however, was not.
If you’re someone who wants more of a challenge, look no further than Симон. This modern take on the game uses RGB LEDs, so each of the buttons can be any of the four colors (as opposed to fixed positions in the original design). As if that wasn’t hard enough, this new version includes 5 levels of difficulty as well.
Whether it’s adding “chords” that require you to push two buttons at once, or moving the colors around when it’s your turn, even the most powerful of Simon players will find a suitable challenge here.
The game comes fully assembled on a PCB, leaving you to just provide the two AA batteries so you can get started.
