Blind Earth Escape

Category: 

Description of App: 

Want a challenging maze game? How about one that's also a game for your child? Children will LOVE the simple, visible mazes for the sounds and animation.

All will enjoy solving more difficult invisible mazes. People who are visually impaired will be on equal footing with others with the help of VoiceOver.

You have discovered precious silver in the earth! Your job is to drag your precious silver balls up 5 levels to the surface, moving blindly up through the ground to Freedom and fresh air! Enjoy 3 maze types, with 3 skill levels per type. Fun for children or even a genius!

Three type of mazes:

  • Completely Visible mazes, especially good for developing a child's coordination and analytical skills.
  • "Progress" mazes which start out Invisible. When a ball is dragged across an invisible wall, the ball falls to its starting position, a small explosion occurs at the wall, and the wall is displayed and remains that way.
  • Invisible mazes that remain completely invisible. Only explosions and the ball dropping will be your clues to the location of walls. You can find your way through trial and error, but you will need to rely on your memory and spatial visualization.

Surely there is a level of difficulty for everyone, or for every occasion. Whether you just want to enjoy the game play, sounds, and animations-- or whether you really want a challenge.

Enjoy your Blind Earth Escape!

Only 5 rows of walls separate you from your goal. And there are only 4 columns in which to move. But when the walls are invisible, try remembering the successful steps you've taken, or determining when you must be headed for a dead end. I dare you!

Choose 1 of 3 ball movement sounds. They provide additional feedback when exploring an invisible maze.

Other Comments: 

Well,. I will admit I kind of stink at maze games, but I find this quite fun to do. The sound design is really nice and VO doesn't need to be turned off to play.
