What 2600 game needs the fastest/best reaction time?

What 2600 game needs the fastest/best reaction time? OR perhaps I could state it this way, what 2600 game needs the most caffeine to play well..?

Kaboom! Is tough, but you can accidentally get by for a while simply swinging the paddle around in a giggling fit. lol

 

I'd say Laser Blast is up there for a great 'twitch' game. Need pretty damn fast responses for that one, despite being predictable and a little repetitive.

 

Cosmic Ark and Vault Assault come to mind as does Berzerk, Breakout and Super Breakout. Video Olympics too. Perhaps to a lesser extent: Coconuts, Space Invaders, Dodge 'Em, Frogger, Midnight Magic, River Raid and Tapper.

Imagic's "Firefighter".

 

Chug a few Red Bull's before even attempting to play.

 

 

"Human Cannonball" as well.

I agree with the other posters naming Dragster. Sure it's not life or death, but a large part of winning drag racing is your reaction time. The same holds true with the videogame.

 

I also agree with Enduro and I'd mention Grand Prix. You really have to move quick to avoid crashing into those other cars.

I know they are probably some of the worst games on earth, but most of the Atari 2600 Porn games actually require an insane reaction time.

 

 

Beat'em & Eat'em plays near the same as Kaboom so ya I agree.

Kaboom definitely, plus Cosmic Ark.

 

Some others:

Solar Storm, 'cause you have NO time to react to enemy shots.

Escape from the MindMaster

Phaser Patrol for the lock on sight

yars' revenge: when the quotile starts its spinning on difficulty A, its kinda fast and i find that it requires some major twitching skillz
