3 Flash Games To Help Improve Your Reflexes In The Browser [MUO Gaming]

adobe flash player icon   3 Flash Games To Help Improve Your Reflexes In The Browser [MUO Gaming]If you regularly play any real-time strategy or FPS games, you know how important quick reflexes can be. In a game like Counter-Strike or League of Legends, it can be the difference between a won or lost match. No one wants to be a loser, right?

Repetition is the key to getting better at almost anything, and that holds true with gaming as well. The more you play, the better you should get. However, honing your skills with peripherals like the mouse or keyboard and sharpening your reflexes is something that can help you in general. Games that require no knowledge or game sense and rely completely on skill with the mouse or keyboard act as a way to universally improve you as a gamer, and that’s what I’ve got for you in this article!

Cursor Invisible

Cursor Invisible is a very simple game that is strangely addicting.

Upon clicking to start, you have three seconds to click on the targets that pop up on the screen before your cursor turns completely invisible (as the title suggests). During those three seconds, you better hope that you’ve learned to make a connection between the distance you drag your mouse and the speed of your cursor, because your round is over after a single miss-click

Cursor Invisible doesn’t make it easy on you, either. The mouse sensitivity, acceleration, and speed are all different from your default settings. This forces you to quickly play with the cursor and make quick relationships to understand how your cursor maneuvers in the game. It’s a great way to become more skilled with your mouse.

The best gamers should be able to move the cursor in a single, quick flick to get it from point A to point B, and this game helps you practice doing that.

AimBooster

AimBooster is actually very similar to Cursor Invisible, just a little more forgiving.

In AimBooster, you choose between Training and Challenge modes. The Training mode allows you to control how many targets pop up per second, time per target, the size of the target, and the conditions of a loss. The Challenge mode is the same game, just without the leeway of tinkering with the options.

After your game ends, you’re given accuracy and time stats. You’re also shown a chart that shows every single one of your clicks, so you can see how near to the bulls-eye each of your clicks were.

AimBooster is a great way to bring up your accuracy with the mouse, as well as your reaction time.

Curve Ball

Everyone who has played Flash games has probably heard of this game by now.

Curve Ball is like Pong on steroids. In Curve Ball, you win by using your paddle, controlled by the mouse, to hit the ball at a curved angle so that your CPU opponent cannot react quickly enough to return the hit. There are levels that get progressively harder, and after a certain amount of misses you’re out of lives and must start over.

Playing Curve Ball is a great way to learn to react quickly and control your mouse with clutch accuracy.

I think it’s better to do physical exercise to train the muscles and joints. Playing games will strain parts of the body such as eyes, back and neck.

Some of those flash games caused my Chrome browser to alert me that there was Malware in them. Therefore I did not bother opening or playing any of them. Please check your websites sources before passing them on to others.

Been playing these games for a while and experienced nothing like this. Apparently the same goes for many others, but I would prefer to help look into that for you. What extension do you have in Google Chrome that is claiming there is malware on these pages?

I love Curve Ball. I’m slightly addicted to it now :(
