Description of App

Blindfold Horse Race is an fully accessible audio game where you race your horse against other horses.

In Blindfold Horse Race, you walk or run your fingers on the screen, as if the horse is running. You are in post 2, and the other horses are in post 1 and 3. Once you hear the starting bells, race as fast as you can, and you may win.

Races are from 1 furlong to 1 mile, and there are several types of racetracks. There's even a steeplechase race where you must jump over fences and steer your horse left and right.

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.

HI! I found out about Blindfold Horse Race by chance last night, when opening another Blindfold Games app and seeing the Blindfold Games apps list because a new one had been released, and I decided to install the game: I'm very glad I did. Apart from learning the game, the only races I've done so far are the time trial and the three-furlong race, but I'm not doing too badly, having won a couple of races and not been too slow in the time trial. I'm definitely enjoying the game, and it's good exercise for my fingers too. So far I'd rather stick to flat racing rather than the steeple-chases, but I expect I'll try those out sometime in the future.

I like the races, though I am not very good at the figure-eight races.

It's great fun. However, I'm rubbish at jumping the fences. It took me many practices to get to grips with timing your jump correctly, which led to frustration. A very fun way to relax.

I downloaded this game 25 minutes ago but I am really enjoying it so far. I have only raced the 3 furlong and 5 furlong races, but I won both.

I think that there is a setting that can adjust how close you need to be to the fence to jump.

From the old nintendo all the way to the iOS platform, this game reminds me of many track and field games in the past. For me, it is by far the greatest game in this blindfold series. Hopefully we will see a game in the future with events such as high-jump, pole-volt and javelin throw? Don't know how the developer will pull it off to make such a game exactly, but at least blindfold horse race already solved the issue of runing and jumping.

I hope that somebody from the developers read this particular comment, for I do not know how else to report bugs.

First and nastiest bug, when trying to post your performance at the end of a race to Twitter or Facebook, it always says this. "Just beat (horse name) by 1 steps, playing Blindfold Horserace !
Get this game from the App Store:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/blindfold-horse-race/id1073129602?ls=1&…" This is, to say the least, extremely annoying.

The second issue is the "my scores " screen. The best times does not reflect correctly. For example, after nearly 30 runs at the time trial, the reflected time is definitely not a true reflection.

This game is outstanding, especially the Steeplechase races. However, I believe that it would be even better if we could race against other available Game Centre players.

A little delayed, I know.
I tried the game a couple of days ago and bought it.
I have named my horse AppleVis for obvious reasons.
I am good at the straight tracks and am learning to jump. I haven’t come anywhere near being able to do the turning tracks yet.
The sounds are really awesome. Is it the other horses I hear to the left and right?
My finger is getting lots of exersise.
