If you’re looking for another game to add to your porcelain throne-gaming repertoire, then Hit the Spot! is a definitely one to check out on your iPhone or iPad.

This simple yet challenging game lets you train your visual reflexes and aiming skills as you try and tap on the green circle that will appear among a jumble of other shapes and colors.

It sounds really simple and straightforward, so let’s take a closer look at the gameplay and other features of this app.

Hit the Spot!


Interface and Gameplay

Hit the Spot! takes up just 13.6 MB of space on your iOS device. It is available for free, so all you need to spend is a few moments of your time downloading it before you can start having fun with it.

The main menu has four options including Start Game, Help, More games, and Disable/Enable Game Center. You will also be subject to some wonky old-school Space Quest style music here, which can get old after a while! But I suppose that is part of the charm and fun of simplistic games such as Hit the Spot!

The Help section takes you through the tutorial of the game, which essentially tells you to tap the green spot as quickly as you can without making the smallest of errors, or else you will lose the game.

Armed with this instruction, you can tap on Start Game.

Improve Your Reflexes and More

When you start the game, you are prompted to Hit The Green Spot, just in case you forgot what needs to be done. It counts down from three and you are presented with the gaming screen which has a variety of shapes including squares, triangles, stars, and circles of various colors.

At any given time, you will only find a single green circle which you must tap as soon as you possibly can. If you wait too long, it will disappear and the game will be over.

This app claims to help you in a number of ways including the improvement of visual perception and reflexes, along with the training of hand-eye coordination.
