I noticed that when I try to double tap to select an option I can't do it it's like it's locked up or something. I am using an iPhone 6S with the latest update. So I guess I can't play the games and less other people have any tips. Thank you

Hi this is a fun game! Can you add a way to go back to different menus? For example if am playing one game there is no way for me to go back and pick a different game without closing out the app. using the scrub gesture would work well here.

Submitted by music fairy on Sunday, April 24, 2016

hello. to go back, you have to find the very left hand corner of the screen. it should say return. double tap their. if you double tap anywhere else it won't work. it takes some getting used to but it works eventually. as for the double tapping, where are you when you try and it fails? i am also on an iPhone six with the latest iOS

Submitted by JeffB on Sunday, April 24, 2016

Got it thanks still wish it was a scrub. lol

Submitted by music fairy on Sunday, April 24, 2016

same. in general actually i wish the double taps could be less precice.

Submitted by Ornella on Sunday, April 24, 2016

I love this app very much. I know I wil have fun. 1 question about the casino table how to get it to say what's on the wheels after I pull the handle?

Submitted by music fairy on Sunday, April 24, 2016

listen to the sounds. their should be one to the left, one middle, and one right. those represent the symbols. if the sounds match, or if their is a slightly longer chord like sound, you will win. hope this is helpfull.

Submitted by David Standen on Sunday, April 24, 2016

I really love this game. I have only tried the blocks, memory game and labyrinth so far but plan to try the others very soon.

When double tapping then you have to double tap right where you need to double tap you can't tap like in the middle of the screen or anything like that if I have that right thank you

Submitted by HarmonicaPlayer on Sunday, April 24, 2016

when I went to where you can upload your high scores to the audiogamehub.com site it says page don't exist:(

Submitted by Ornella on Sunday, April 24, 2016

this helps. I like how they have a few games to choose from. I like the casino table memory, blocks. and I have to learn the rest of games. I hope to get more games like this in the future.

Submitted by DMNagel on Sunday, April 24, 2016

Archery, hunt, samurai tournament, samurai dojo and labyrinth so far.

Submitted by tunmi13 on Sunday, April 24, 2016

I've played only the same games that DMNagel has said. I like the Samurai Dojo one, that's cool. Also the labyrinth is a really creepy game, you can hear monsters and stuff, it's crazy. And the hunt one is cool, the raccoon almost escaped from me, but with my handy bow I shot it. So this is a great app, and also, it's free!! No in-app purchases.

Submitted by Ornella on Sunday, April 24, 2016

when I reach down to the last 2 boxes to open, it sometimes won't move. I just hear the tapping sound. I hope it could be fixed sometime. I also like archery

Submitted by David Standen on Sunday, April 24, 2016

In reply to by Ornella

I am also experiencing the same issue with the boxes. On the whole, though, this is a cool little collection of games. It would be cool if more titles could be added in the future.

Submitted by Igna Triay on Monday, April 25, 2016

I got to the final round of the archery contest, but I didn't make it. Will continue trying though. By the way, has anyone managed to beat the samurai dojo? It is very hard, I mean, the game is simple enough, the hard thing is tapping as fast as you can. Lol.

Submitted by kool_turk on Monday, April 25, 2016

Samurai tournament is kind of pointless.

All it does is test your reaction.

Wait for the sound, then tap the screen.

Dojo on the other hand is a bit more tricky, cause you need to tap the screen a certain amount of times within the alotted time.

Archery is just like audio archery by l-works, only this one is a little different.

The concept is the same, only different scoring and the target doesn't only move from left to right.

Hunt is easy once you get use to loosing your arrow when the beeps are fast enough, the animals don't need to be in the exact centre.

Memory is fun, while blocks, I found to be confusing.

I couldn't manage to get out of the laberinth yet, but I will eventually come back to that one eventually.

I'm trying to finish the archery tournament.

I can make it to the finals, but keep bowing out when my target score is 24, 25.

The casino is based on luck so I didn't spend much time playing that one.

I also had the same issue when trying to post my score.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Monday, April 25, 2016

I just did a podcast on the game. You can check the feed at feeds.feedburner.com/tffp I also had the same trouble when posting the score. Blocks was easy, memmory was a bit harder, the maze was driving me nuts. Archery was easy, hunting I didn't quite get. And I was kind of having fun with the slots. Have fun.

Submitted by DMNagel on Monday, April 25, 2016

The end boss doesn't say how many hits are required, but i guess it's between 360 and 365. I just managed to get a little over the limit with 371.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Monday, April 25, 2016

I'll have to try that game out. I didn't do it as I wanted to keep the demo very very short, like under an hour lol! I clocked in at 38 minutes 45 seconds for the 5 games I demoed.

Take care all and have a hppy Monday.

Submitted by David Standen on Monday, April 25, 2016

Yes, I also beat him. It's challenging, but fun.

Submitted by Clare Page on Monday, April 25, 2016

Hi! After reading about Audio Game Hub here yesterday, I decided to install the app, and I'm glad I did. I've tried out all the games except Labyrinth and the two samurai games, and I like them all, even though I'm definitely better at some than at others: for example, I could say that animals are relatively safe from me in the hunting game, given the amount of times I miss them! As was pointed out above, the positions of buttons and other objects on the screen in these games can be very precise, but playing these games fairly regularly should help me get used to that. I have not tried posting high scores yet, but here's hoping my high scores from yesterday are saved when I reopen the app so I know in future whether I've beaten them or not.

Submitted by tunmi13 on Monday, April 25, 2016

Boss has 360 hits.
The disciples have 30, 60, 120, and 180 hits.

Submitted by Joseph on Monday, April 25, 2016

Yep. so the double basically wit heach one. I would've loved to see what would've happened if the devs had taking the original number, say for ecample 30, and squared it, then the next one up and so forth. THat would be a hell of a challenge.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Monday, April 25, 2016

I actually got a high score of 5555 on blocks. I kid you not. That was not recorded as that was played at like 2 am this morning. Still though it was fun.

Submitted by tunmi13 on Monday, April 25, 2016

There should be something where there is multiplayer on that hunting game and you must try to hunt all the animals before the other ferson does or something like that that would be cool.
Another thing, in the Samurai Dojo, I wish there are actual fights and if you give the person 30 hits they are defeated or something instead of tapping as fast as you can, but that could be an option. And there is realistic sound to go with the battle, and you can block by holding two fingers down on the screen or something. But I don't know if all of this is possible.

Submitted by Ornella on Monday, April 25, 2016

That would be nice but maybe you could contact the developers and give your suggestions. I was checking for reviews on the app store but there wasn't any.

Submitted by tunmi13 on Monday, April 25, 2016

Yeah I'll do that, otherwise I wonder if the developers are even on the AppleVis site.

Submitted by MsHollyWeezy on Tuesday, April 26, 2016

This is fun!!!! Memory is the hardest game for me though. Lol. But I like playing all these games.

Submitted by Ornella on Tuesday, April 26, 2016

I don't like when sometimes I double tapping on the boxes and it not opening.

Submitted by Clare Page on Tuesday, April 26, 2016

I have the same problem with the Memory game in Audio Game Hub, namely that I tap the boxes as instructed but they don't always open sstraight away. I assume that each box is very precisely positioned, so we need to tap exactly the right point on the screen to get each box to open: it can take patience sometimes, but thankfully there is no time limit on this game as far as I can tell, so, if it takes a bit longer to open a box than I thought it would, that's definitely not a deal-breaker for me.

Submitted by tunmi13 on Tuesday, April 26, 2016

That's why I stopped playing that game ever since the boxes wouldn't open when I double tapped on them. I had to like double tap three times to get one of them open. And I wish the app spoke the row the box is in so then could easily determine if the box is on the left or right side of the screen.

Submitted by Igna Triay on Tuesday, April 26, 2016

For the boxes to open, you have to tap in the exact spot where the box you want to open is.

Submitted by Ornella on Tuesday, April 26, 2016

That's what I did. But I'm thinking that the boxes move. I only have that problem coming down mainly to the end where there might be the last 2 to open.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Tuesday, April 26, 2016

In reply to by tunmi13

Actually the boxes have a pitch to them so you can tell where you are. The higher the pitch the higher on the screen you are. And there is a time limit. I hit it on 20 boxes. Lol!

also you can hear whether they're right or left on the screen if you are using head phones. i keep getting stuck on twenty boxes as well.

Submitted by tunmi13 on Tuesday, April 26, 2016

I do that too I tap in the exact spot but still doesn't work I'll have to keep trying and the blocks game is pretty fun too, you have to put the same boxes in the same slot in three rows.

Submitted by Igna Triay on Tuesday, April 26, 2016

I got stuck on 24 boxes. Ironically, I managed to finish the level, but time ran out.

Submitted by Joseph on Tuesday, April 26, 2016

I get stuck on the labyrinth all the time. the sound you're supposed to follow isn't in mono and not all that loud to begin with, so it's challenging to say the least. still fun though.

Submitted by Ornella on Tuesday, April 26, 2016

I got stuck on 24 boxes as well when the time ran out.

Submitted by Igna Triay on Tuesday, April 26, 2016

Yeah, the funny thing was that I had already opened the last box. Perhaps I did it too late?

Submitted by tunmi13 on Wednesday, April 27, 2016

No clue, but I'm on 16 boxes now.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Saturday, April 30, 2016

Try looking at their website. It is I think listed in this thread. There is no mac version, you some how play on their website via a web interface, or so I read on the app description.

Submitted by David Standen on Sunday, May 1, 2016

I just checked their website. You cannot play online. As well as IOS, the game is available for Windows And Android.

Submitted by Ornella on Sunday, May 1, 2016

I think someone posted a link of the game version for a mack. but it isn't in this thread
