There were days when we all worshipped Takahashi Meijin (Known overseas as Master Higgins) with his rapid-fire skills. Now you can try to be just like him in this app. If you played the original Nintendo game console as kids in Japan back then, you must have come across his name.
Toshiyuki Takahashi's Game Island is an app that came out of his own live internet show "16SHOT TV."
This game contains several mini games. Every mini game requires you to rapid-tap, which is fitting, as that was his signature gaming technique that made him well known in the first place. Here are some of the mini games in Toshiyuki Takahashi's Game Island.
These screenshots are reminiscent of the shooting games like Star Force and Star Luster, but in this game, all you can do is rapid-fire.
In Food Fighter, tap repeatedly on the food that shows up in order to eat it. The key is to pick and eat only edibles.
Tap on the monkeys as fast as you can, as they spread across the screen.
Everything including game design and music of this game was done by the viewers of 16SHOT TV. Although it lacks the gloss of professionally made games, you can feel thier passion and it is very entertaining.
All sales from this game will be donated towards the recovery effort of the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake.
Hurry if you're interested in downloading this game, as it is supposed to be only available until around February 18th.
