The most addictive game you’ll play today only uses the arrow keys

Once upon a time, there was Guitar Hero, which required you to be fleet of finger to master the hits.

Now, meet Arrow Hero, which uses your fast fingers to…um…rack up a high score by hitting the arrow keys at the right moment.

It’s very simple – as you can see from the GIF at the top of the page – but like so many really basic games before it, it’s also very addictive.

The most maddening thing is that the game’s creator says “you win when you manage to make a score you are proud of.” How will I know?

Give it a go and let us know how you scored in the poll below and the comments section.

You can also find the code for the game on GitHub.
