We Sing 80s is a 2012 karaoke game part of the We Sing family of games, developed by French studio Le Cortex. The game features songs from the 1980s only.

Gameplay[edit]

The gameplay is similar to the SingStar set of video games. Players are required to sing along with music in order to score points, matching pitch and rhythm. The game has anticheat technology whereby tapping or humming will register on the screen but no points will be awarded. We Sing Pop! also contains the addition of 'Star Notes' that allow the player to score even more points by matching the pitch and rhythm of certain hard to score parts of songs.

  • 30 full licensed songs with music videos where available
  • Solo Modes - Solo, Blind and Expert.
  • Multiplayer modes - Group Battle, We Sing, Versus, Pass the Mic, First to X, Expert, Blind, Marathon.
  • Real Karaoke mode
  • Jukebox mode
  • Singing Lessons
  • Award System
  • Customisable backgrounds
  • Four Microphones
  • Integrates with a USB hub

Due to hardware limitations with the Wii only having two USB ports, a standard USB hub can be used to play with three or more players. The game uses the standard logitech USB microphone for the Wii.
