LOOPZ Shifter Review (Mattel)

What It Is

The game LOOPZ has been a hot-selling item for Mattel over the past few years, and now there is a follow-up game called LOOPZ Shifter. With this new game, LOOPZ goes horizontal. LOOPZ Shifter brings players a customizable challenge that allows them to rearrange the LOOPZ Shifter unit into five shapes that test reflex and skill in 20 different ways. Combining music, motion, and memory, the game challenges players to match the patterns of light and sound by motioning their hands through the rings. As each ring pulsates, players must quickly put their hand through the lit loop to keep the music sequence going. An internal counter keeps track of time and completed levels, and rates overall performance. There are four games to play: Repeat the Beat, Reflex Master, Rhythm Duel, and Freestyle DJ. Each game has multiple levels. LOOPZ Shifter is for one to four players.

Is It Fun?

Much like the original LOOPZ, LOOPZ Shifter keeps players moving as they move their hands through the rings. The unpredictable nature of the game makes it exciting and challenging. Play by yourself for practice or to beat your personal best score or challenge friends and family to head-to-head competition.

This is a fast-paced game that will inspire a lot of laughter, and it's also a great game for people of different ages to play together.

Who It’s For

LOOPZ Shifter is for ages 7 and up.
