On every ten points, the game's background music speed increases and when the player scores a certain number of pints, the motion sensor moves will change. On reaching 100 points, the game unit will pause and say "Wow! Score - 100. Bop It to keep going." Then the game will continue and end at 200 points. In the second round, the game uses more actions than classic commands.

For the first time in Bop It history, this new Bop it will let the player know when it's time to change the batteries by saying in a sad pitch-changing voice "My batteries are running low."

Unlike this Bop It, old games would start to sound very glitchy and unintelligible. The Bop It Download, however, would often stop talking abruptly. It would also go to turning itself off randomly, keeping a command's light on until the reset button was pressed, or just making a water-like noise if the Bop It button is pressed too hard. Newer Bop Its until this one would just slowly start to sound like there is static along with the audio.
