Red Light Green Light – a fun and challenging tapping game
Nov 7, 2014 4:41 PM –
Red Light Green Light is a fun and challenging tapping game. Tap the buttons while the background is green and avoid them while red. Can you beat all 30 levels?
Tested on: Samsung Galaxy S4
Pros & Cons:
- Challenging tapping game!
- Custom mode to create your own levels!
- Poor graphics.
- Repetitive with little variety.
Red Light Green Light takes the same principles from the childhood game and mashes them into a mobile game. The rules are simple, gain the score to the top left by tapping the buttons only when the background is green. Each button tap decreases to zero, then you collect one point. Don’t tap when the background is red, if you do you’ll lose a point for each tap. Remember you’re racing against the clock in the top right. As you play you’ll notice it can become frustratingly difficult to tap as fast as possible while thwarting the red- which comes at random.
In some rounds there are special rule signified by the following icons… When fast forward arrows appear on red it won’t turn green until you tap the button. When the circled arrow appears on red the number on the button will return back to the max number for the level. When the bomb appears on red you lose the same number of points that appears on the button. You can make your own level in the Custom Mode too. Here you can adjust the score to achieve, change the timer as well as the number when the score will tally, speed of background change, plus set special rules.
There’s not much variety to the game with the exception that it can be spiced up a bit with the custom mode- it can get repetitive as it’s the same gameplay just higher number and timer. I also must point out the poor low resolution graphics. Had this taken advantage of flat modern colors or even been inspired by Google’s material design it would have rated better with us. Joinz is a good example of a simple game exhibiting great flat design.
