Description of App: 

Taken from the App Store description :

"Blindfold Breakout is an fully accessible audio game that's similar to the classic arcade game breakout. In Blindfold Breakout, you have a paddle, a ball, and a series of bricks. First, tap the screen to launch the ball from your paddle. When it hits a brick, the brick is shattered, and the ball bounces back to your paddle. To move your paddle, move the phone left and right. Using head phones or ear buds, you hear the ball heading towards you, and the ball will bounce off of your paddle when it's sound is in the center of your head. Blindfold Breakout comes with a tutorial level, and several games. Simple Breakout starts off with one row of eight bricks that you must destroy, then moves onto two rows, then three, all the way up to 10 rows of bricks. The ball gets faster each time you hit it with your paddle, and you can change the bounce angle by hitting it at the left or right side of your paddle. Blindfold Breakout was suggested by several blind gamers who enjoyed Blindfold Bowling and Blindfold Pong. The game comes with coins; you need one coin to play. To get more coins, you can listen to advertising videos, or purchase coins as an in-app upgrade."
