Due to the success and instant popularity of Milton Bradley's Simon Game, many copy cat games were introduced in an attempt to profit from this success. Some of the copy cat games include:
1974 & 1978 Atari Touch Me Game:
The original Touch Me game was released in 1974, but was unsuccessful. This game is where the idea came from for the Simon Game. This game was re-released in 1978 as Atari's first and only handheld game.
1979 Einstein Game by Castle:
The idea of the game is for one or more players to try to match Einstein’s play. Einstein is a compact unit which features four colored squares (yellow, blue, green, and red). After choosing one of the four possible skill levels, the player(s) then chooses the number of random sequences they want to match. You can choose 9, 12, 20, or 32. Once you press start, Einstein begins by playing the first square to be matched. The game builds and the sequences become more complex the longer you play.
1980 Fabulous Fred by Mego:
Fabulous Fred is an electronic game machine that features 10 different games: Electronic Organ, Music Machine, What's That Song, Memory Game, Mind Benders, Space Attack, Submarine Hunt, Catch the Comet, Baseball and Roulette.
1988 Copy Cat by Tiger Electronics
