Quoted from mot:
When Chris showed me Simon, he explained how Tri-Zone was a good candidate because the normal rules aren't particularly exciting, and it's got four drop targets on the lower half of the playfield. Some of those drops are pretty hard to hit, so it's definitely an exercise in ball control.
I think an even better candidate would be Bally "Spectrum". I know this is a rare game, but the layout of the drop targets makes them all very easy to hit. Of course, this would become less of an exercise in ball control and more of a memory exercise, but that's what Simon's all about! Additionally, it could be pretty well implemented without redoing any of the art, which I guess means you wouldn't have to destroy a rare game.
I guess it might be up to me to get a Spectrum and learn how to do it!
I am not sure what you would have to do to Spectrum as it is based on Simon to begin with?? The game provides audio clues as to what color is or isn't in the current puzzle.
