Game 1 – Hex Invaders
A game to help the player mentally train himself to convert from Hexadecimal to Binary as fast as possible. A random Hex number is generated and the user must enter the respective binary value before the 'enemy space ship' arrives at the Safe base.. Eventually the more the player progresses the shorter the allocated time to translate will be making it increasingly difficult by adapting to the skill cap of the player
Game 2 – Binary Runner
This endless runner starts by generating a random binary number and displaying another 3 random decimal numbers. One of the decimal numbers generated corresponds to the value of the binary number generated at start. Throughout the endless runner a start of 3 collectibles are generated each connected to the decimal numbers. The player must collect the correct item corresponding to the value of the Binary number. when collected (if correct) an other instance of random numbers is generated and a note is played, the more the player progresses the faster the objects will be collected and the notes played would collectively end up forming a melody.
