Accessibility Comments: 

This is Maverick Software's most accessible food game to date. When it came out and I saw its depth and complexity I was unwilling to buy it because I did not think it would be as usable as it is, but believe me, it is a breeze to use with Voiceover. Moreover if you, like me, are a Maverick addict, you will get literally hours of fun from this. Unlike the early games, there is very little need to turn VO off and on, you can do almost everything with voiceover functioning and the instructions are so good that few explanations should be necessary here, though if you need help I'll be glad to answer any questions. The only thing I have not been able to do is to open the oven door with VO on. You do need to turn VO off and swipe the door open. Then turn VO on, tap where it says "Turkey" or whatever you're putting in, then turn VO off and swipe the door closed to start baking. You won't hear a close sound, you'll hear the bleeps of the timer being set. The sound effects are really great in this game and I love the new foods added in the latest update. Great work, Maverick!

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface makes the app very difficult to use.

Other Comments: 

Unfortunately I have found a problem with this and all Maverick Software games. It is proving much more difficult to do a three-fingered swipe to turn pages which will enable access to more ingredients. While it can be done with patience it makes the game much more of a hit and miss affair and makes it much harder to play and less fun. I am therefore sadly changing the rating.
