I recently became interested in reaction times and how it effects gaming - and it turns out that reaction time per se is actually pretty consistent between different players. It other skills, like hand-eye coordination, pattern recognition, and automatic decision-making, that make games easier or harder for different people.
Also I wanted an excuse to make something simple with PICO-8 :)
So test yourself! It only takes about 5 minutes, tops. Share your best times in the comments and see just how pro a gamer you really are! (note: I do not recommend placing very much self-worth in how quickly you can press buttons in response to flashing lights)
