Description of App

Blindfold Runner is a fully accessible endless runner game inspired by the games like Temple Run. The objective is to keep running, jumping over or sliding under obstacles, turning left and right when needed, and collect prizes. You can play this game forever - there's no official finish - just try to get the highest score you can before losing.

There are four types of obstacles: Things you need to jump over, such as rivers. You'll hear an ascending tone. Swipe up to jump. Things you need to slide under, such as a truck. You'll hear a descending tone. Swipe down to slide. Path goes to the right. You'll hear a sound move from your left ear to your right ear indicating something is blocking the path straight ahead, and turning right is the only direction to go. Swipe right to turn right. Path goes to the left. You'll hear a different sound move from your right ear to your left ear. Swipe left to turn left.

There are also coins that you can get on the left and right sides of the road, and in the Expedition Game, supplies that you can purchase to use on your expedition.

You'll need new running shoes after you run a lot. You'll need band-aids after you scrape your knees a lot.

Hey kind friendly software just downloaded the blind fold runner this morning and I’m having an issue when it says to swipe up for instance, if I play easy practice game I don’t hear anything might need to reinstall the app you think?

Hey kid friendly software it tells me to swipe up with what finger combination? Cause I can get back to the main menu with 3 fingers but it just says to swipe up to begin!

Start with one finger somewhere in the middle of the screen and swipe up.

Hi folks. A while back, Brandon brought up the subject of boardgames and was asked for ideas, so while I play with this new app, I'll put some out there. Life, (with and without friends) and monopoly needs a version with friends. Then there's also Scrable and trivial persuit. Since we don't have an accessible version of You Don't Know Jack, a TV style game based on it could be done as well. And if you did ... persuit, you could sell the initial board for free and additional card packs as in-app purchases that could be specialty trivia topics: Star Trek, Reality TV, computer programming ... you name it. Thoughts?J

Hi.
So, I played this game on super fast and on the expedition game and I have to say, it's still to slow for my taste, even when you are on the super fast mode, you have about 5 seconds before the next sound cue for sliding, turning or jumping comes up, and I am talking level 10 or above here.
And, to the guy who said that this developer should be put out of business, yeah, I due agree, instead of throwing a tamper tantrum like he always does he could have complyed with the rules and combine for examples the offline and online versions of a game into one.
And to the person who noticed that we wouldn't have games if this developer goes out of business, well, i am sorry to say, but there are other developers out there producing games which are actually worth a damb.

Greetings

Hi, yes, I did change the starting speed in the settings to the maximum value

Can we import our itunes or other music in the game?

I didn't do music in this game, because the sound of the footsteps are the fun. Music might make it harder to hear the sounds.

Did you disable the signal sounds - the sounds telling you to turn right, left, jump or slide, and simply go by the sound that the obstacle makes? I assumed that would make the game much harder. If you've already done that, how much faster, as a percent, should the maximum speed be. Or, another way to think about it, what's the minimum time to get from the start of the path to the obstacle. Right now, I think its about 2 seconds, but it may be a little longer.

we can Control the volume of the music

Hello.
I play the expedition game and it is awesome.
I have a question though.
I didn’t manage to buy new running shoes. Now I am running rediculously slow wich is hillarious. Is there a way to start running fast again or am I doomed to run this slow for the rest of the game?
I cannot stop laughing.

Submitted by KidFriendlySoftware on Sunday, June 17, 2018

I think once you buy running shoes, you can run fast again.

Hi
First of all, this game is awesome. I love playing it but recently I discovered that I’m on able to play the expedition game because there is no button to buy the supplies that I need to get to continue. When can we expect a fix for this?
