Boppity Bop…

I was over the moon when I was given the opportunity of developing the online version of the popular Bop It toy. If you’re not familiar with Boppit, it’s an electronic toy wwith a series of inputs and the game is controlled by sound. The toy gives a command such as “pull it” or “spin it” and you have to react fast with the correct input or lose. The game is played to a beat and every now and then the command is to “pass it” where you pass the toy to the next player.

My niece has the toy and I had played it on a number of occasions so it was great fun to take that offline playing experience and transform it into an online game. There were a few challenges along the way (how to best convert a series of physical movements into interesting mouse/keyboard controls) but the results turned out great. Read all about it here.
