About this game

Flippy Bit And The Attack Of The Hexadecimals From Base 16

Hi

We at Q42 have teamed up with Russian psychologist Kateryna Afinogenova to create this experiment to test her recent study in which a group of 420 kids were shown to have a natural talent for doing bitwise operations and conversions to hexadecimals.

"Seven percent of the test group could bitshift" she said to Scientific World News in an exclusive interview, which caught our nerdy attention. Especially the following statement:

"While adults have trouble with binary numbers, from around the age of two, children can not only calculate on a binary scale, but even translate from binary to hexadecimal - and back."

We were able to contact her and collaborate remotely on this experimental game that allows kids to literally do that conversion. Afinogenova requested to omit a tutorial to further emphasize the adoption difficulty between adults and children.

We were amazed by the results. You can be amazed too! Play the game and find out!

Definitely original, and pretty interesting if you like hexadecimal and/or binary. It could do with a tiny tutorial though, because I initially tried to just activate the rockets under the incoming aliens. What you NEED to do is convert the hex number on an alien into binary, so that the hex number on the little guy's computer screen matches it. Hint for those unfamiliar with hex: both digits can be treated independently, each corresponding to the 4 rightmost/leftmost digits

Perfect, except for the fact that the speed ramping rate it too high. By about 26+ score, even if you input the binary numbers straight away as soon as the hex numbers show up, the rockets only fire when the hex numbers hit the ground. (Basically the animation time for the rockets is too slow in my opinion). I would prefer to have longer games with higher scores so I get more practice at higer speeds without having to restart so often.

Awesome game. Would be even better if you could get weapons upgrades to destroy enemies faster. By default, it's nearly impossible to get past 25 as the rockets are too slow.
