Abstract

A gaming system for use with a media player and one or more output devices, where the media player is configured to receive user signals and to present portions of the information on the one or more output devices. The gaming system causes the media player to produce a game having a plurality of scenes, wherein each scene causes the media player to selectively respond to the reception of user signals. The gaming system also includes a remote unit operable by one or more users. The remote unit includes a controller that is configured to selectively operate in a first mode that causes the transmitter to transmit a user signal upon actuation of either a first or second buttons, and a second mode that causes the transmitter to transmit a user signal upon actuation of the first button, and to transmit no user signal upon actuation of the second button.
