RefleX, the game that introduced me into indiedev, made in 2020, inspired by Simon Says, made in a month from 0 to release. It is a simple game that aim to test your reflex, as the game progresses the player needs to react faster. Endless, fun and casual.
- Calculate your reflex in milliseconds
- Reach new high score for new unlocks
- Two difficulties
- Three Game modes
- GameSpeed; 1s to 0.1s
- Progressively harder, infinite gameplay
- Easy to play, hard to master
Human fastest reaction is at 0.15s!
Very hard to test!
The difference in the difficulties is how faster the game speed increase, I added some stats to measure the player reaction and the maths.
The settings menu, is the unique feature of RefleX, all the options are unlocked at a certain conditions (or by a certain amount of cash...)
Solo: One button flashes at a time, game ends at level 100
Endless: One button flash, endless...
Dual: Two buttons flash at a time, tentative version of a two player mode
The "Randomness" option was the hardest feature to develop on RefleX, when enabled the game pattern will be always different and if disabled the pattern will always be based on a specific seed.
Game options in v.1.0.5
This is unlocked after playing 123 games (one game is considered when ending with a score of 3 points or more...) Using the save data of a single tap, I gathered and calculated the player characteristics ie average speed, latency, reaction times, and scores. [Youtube Devlog WIP]
Stats in v.1.1.0
RefleX was fun to develop I ended the game development with the [GameOver Release], might consider revisiting in the future to possibly add online multiplayer and more features.
DevLog of the behind the scene on RefleX now in production.
