Accessibility Comments

When I saw that the company who make city of blood (the recently mentioned Gangster rpg), also made others, I decided to give them a try on the off chance they'd also be accessible.
Skies of blood certainly is, and I'd guess that the two other games, the dark fantasy elven blood, and the vampire game bloodlust are too.

The game is a battling rpg in which you complete missions, buy items and battle other players.
Across the bottom are tabs for home, missions, shop, combat, char (character), and federation, which take you to different parts of the game. Though it is occasionally necessary to flick past a jpg, everything you need is labeled, though be aware when swiping through the missions or combat that you get the button to do the mission before the mission's description.

it is also necessary, as with some older aps like a dark room, to touch the middle of the screen to access certain popups, such as the one which lets you redo a mission you've completed, or the confirmation dialogue for buying things from the federation, (which is a good way of getting extra squad members).

The only other miner issue I had, was when I tried emailing my invite link, I got stuck on a window with vo telling me to "press to close popup", though it's easy enough to copy the invite link another way.

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 could be easier to navigate and use.

Other Comments

This is in some ways similar to the old storm8 games, though with more interesting and logical items, an actual story with it's missions and items required to complete them, stamina and life which increase over time, the chance to invite your friends and battle enemies.

No, this isn't the worlds' most complex or detailed rpg, but If your looking for something you can pick up occasionally and bash a few bad guys, whilst completing a story in a grim future, this might be it.

I would be surprised if Dark elven blood isn't, accessible, since i get the idea this company's games are essentially mods of each other with different text, items, environments etc, though of course since I've not actually tried the game myself I can't be certain.

I will say this is a slightly more casual game, and if your looking for serious fantasy rpgs, you might want to take a look at something like King of dragon pass, and it's sequel six ages, land of Livia, path of adventure, or if you really want a challenge, the adventure to fate games, or perhaps even some of the gamebooks from choiceofgames and hosted games (fate haven from the hosted games line is a completely fantastic high fantasy story, whilst wizard's choice from delight games is a wonderfully rolocking old school adventure).

Hth.

Thank you Dobk. I do have king of dragon pass, and six ages, both are really good games. The game dark Alvin blood seems really really awesome. And I have started on that game today, as well as Skies of Blood. I am William on both of those games if you’d like to find me. I will try and copy my link here for Skies of Blood if I can. Please note, I apologize for any misspellings in this post, I am using the dictate feature on my phone.

Feel free to share your skies of blood link, though I don't know if I would also be added to your squad if I clicked it, or whether two people share the same squad, EG if you join my squad on my phone, if I'm also in yours on your phone.
Indeed, sharing links is the only annoying part, since for some reason, the methods to get the link emailed or sent to other aps on the phone didn't seem to work, so I had to copy manually, though yours will probably still be skies of blood slash four letters and numbers.

I might well also give elven blood a try myself as well, indeed it probably also needs a writeup here, and on audiogames.net, as does their vampire game, bloodlust and their gangster rpg city of blood.
