Quicktap is yet another small, quick and easy arcade game by Oriol Gomez. Though released considerably earlier than many of his other titles, Quicktap in some ways could be thought of as the predecessor to later of Oriol's major rhythm action games like Beatstar pro, despite being a slightly different game.
The principle is simple, sweat through the ticking timer, and then hit a key as quickly as you can when you hear the sound. The better your reactions, the higher your score.
There are four modes of difficulty, each adding an extra key to the mix, starting with enter, adding space, tab, and f5 as well (and yes if your thinking that hitting these quickly when they're located all around the keyboard might be a problem, your thinking the right way).
In addition to the basic reaction test style gameplay,there is also a boppit style speed round. In this speed round you quickly hear the sounds of all four keys. For each incorrect key press, the amount of time you have to react grows less. How long can you survive?
As per usual, with Oriol's games, you can show off mad tapping skills on the online scoreboards found here. The game is self voicing so no screen reader is necessary and will run on any version of windows later than Windows 7 but not on Windows xp. additionally, as per usual, the game is %100 free.
The above link will download an installation file for the game. If you'd prefer a plane zip version instead, you can get one using This link
