Yes, as you might have guessed, this is the ‘Simon’ you might recall from your own childhood and a game that still sits on the shelves today. It might well be on the supermarket shelves when you call in tomorrow.
But not this version. This new take on the game is in the shape of Darth Vader’s helmet and whilst still the same game at heart, does add in some neat new touches, including playing John William’s ‘Imperial March’ theme from The Empire Strikes Back, not to mention Vader’s breathing as you try to recall the colour patterns.
It lands in spring of next year and will probably sell for around £20.
