Hi. what's written in the other comments section is slightly inaccurate, as this isn't actually a game. It's simply a game menu. Also, for whatever reason, all the blindfold games I have installed show up in it accept for Blindfold Pinball. I have the blindfold games app in my games folder. I also have another folder on my iPhone called Blindfold games. So in order to play Blindfold Pinball, I must first go into the Blindfold games folder and launch it from there. This isn't a problem of course, as that's what I've been doing for a long while. I'm just not sure why Pinball doesn't show up with the other games listed? Anyone else noticing this?

I have adjusted my comments accordingly.

My only guess as to why Pinball may not be in the list of apps is due to it not being listed on the list of apps that can be seen by selecting the option "Learn about our other apps" from the Settings screens of the apps.

Just a few suggestions and I'm not sure if it is possible and along with some bugs.

1. Would be nice to be able to turn on/off games that we want to see on the main screen. So this way I don't have to scroll down all of the games that I don't have. Though By Usage is nice but I still like to see a slim down list of what I like to have. So possibly a Customized tab for us?
2. Some games like Blackjack does not work. I have it installed but when I double tap on Blackjack from the list it goes to the AppStore each time.
3. Please add the Blindfold Pinball to the list!
4. Why do we need Game Menu on the list for the Game Menu app?

Lastly, just something for you to ponder. I would rather pay a set price for a game. So say $1.99 straight up to buy the game with unlimited plays. All other package I'm alright as an additional in-app purchases like sound packs, voice packs, and such. I rather have this method than having to purchase coins or the unlimited packs.

Thanks for what you do and all of these fantastic games that you make!

Games menu gets its data from the same file that the apps all use to announce new games. I'll modify menu so it doesn't show itself. Some of the games had the wrong information in it to be able to respond to a request from the game menu, and I've fixed about 5 of them, and will resubmit those games to apple. It should take about a week or so to release them.

Pinball is not on the list yet, since it hasn't been officially announced. I wait about a week of the game being released by the app store before I put it into the database, just to make sure there are no major flaws that the testers missed.

I have a few of these games installed, and thought that they could be played in the game Centre with other people. I'm not seeing them there though. Do I have to do something?

A couple of the games are multi-player (Wildcard, RoadTrip, Crazy 8), and more are coming, but I don't use game center for multiplayer. I use game center to identify who you are, but all multi-player stuff is done within the games themselves. Game Center was too unreliable to make the game effective and fun. I re-wrote that section of the games about 5 times before I got it right. Adding multiplayer to existing games now is easier, but it does take a few days to a few weeks per game to make that happen.

If we could play pong with our mates that would be cool. I'm pretty good at that. Only tried for the first time yesterday and it also helped me with breakout because I was really struggling with how it worked. Bowling and air hockey would be great fun too.

Several people have been confused about game pricing, and wonder if they have to keep paying for the games forever. In short, the answer is no - once you buy it, its yours forever.

Some of the games are coin based, where one coin gets you one game play. For these games, you can usually buy $1.00 in coins for 10 to 20 game plays, or you can buy unlimited game play for anywhere from $3 to $10, based on the game.

Other games are simply upgrade packs. The upgrade pack gives you unlimited game play. In some of these games, like Blindfold Word Games, you can also buy $1.00 in coins before you buy the unlimited game play. Those coins can be used to try out each of the game variants, and upgrade decide which pack you want.

We are launching a new company to provide education curriculum via games for preK-12 students with visual impairments and need your help.

Over the past 4 years our company has created 80 accessible games downloaded by more than 20,000 visually impaired people. These games range from Puzzle Games to Card Games to Sports Games to TV Game Shows to Board Games to Word Games. About a dozen of the games are used by TVIs for orientation and mobility practice.

Now, we are looking to take our successful game concept and use it to support the work of teachers of students with visual impairments, orientation and mobility specialists and others who support the educational programs of students with visual impairments.

I've been contacted by some reporters, and they want to write stories about how the games have added enjoyment to people's lives.

I want to share your more recent stories with these reporters.  If the games are a source of entertainment or distraction for you, we would love to hear it.  We'll find the best time for you to talk to the writer by phone.
