any more fun games for the blind?

iOS & iPadOS Gaming
I am blind and an iPhone user. I really enjoy audio games as I can interact like if it were a video game. I currently have where's my rubber ducky, KuraKura maze, and Zainy touch free. As of now theese are the only free audio games, if not say otherwise. I have heard that there are other fun audio games which cost money like Papa Sangre, Blind Side, AudiooRun, and Audio Invadors. but what I'd really like to know is if any of thees paied apps are really worth the money, and what other fun games are there out there. I'm not much of a word game fan or a rpg fan, but you can convince me otherwise.

I've played Papa Sangre in the summer, and found the sounds and music to be enjoyable. The outcome of that game is a little strange, but it's good overall. I loved Soul Trapper (another paid audio game), however it follows a particular trend common in such apps these days: There isn't a part two. Blind Side doesn't have a second installment, either, though I will say that it's fairly newer than the aforementioned games. The game is analogous to Where's my Rubber Ducky in that you move your phone in a varying number of directions in order to navigate to locations. Blind Side is the shortest to play, because the challenges can be completed in a day (or if you're devoted, maybe an hour). My anticipation compelled me to download these games, but it really depends on you. Do you want to play games with a satisfying ending, or do you just want to experience the fun of it. I personally liked each one, but some of them did leave me wondering about the future of the characters. There used to be a free game called Blind Memory that was like Simon Says. When I last checked, though, the app wasn't in the app store. Maybe checking again might be fruitful. Good luck in your quest to find a cool game to play.

Hi i have many fun games, try tap the mole, hearstrike, bop it, accessible videopoker, you should check applevis ios app directory, game section, to find something fun

There are two that I bet nobody on thisw list has heard of. First, Escape The House is a bit like Blind Side. Shake the phone to undo the chains that bind you, then turn in any direction and walk/run by tapping the top of the screen. Tap the screen to walk upstairs, and scream your loudest once you're outside to get help. you'll also have to hide when the killer approaches by holding your phone totally still and being very quiet. I can't believe no one else has found this, and it's free! The Freq is a game where you hear a frequency, followed by a bunch of other tones. Tap the screen anywhere when the right frequency plays. Almost copmpletely accessible, except that you can't select your own frequency, so you have to have a random one play--ate least in the lite version.

there's also Ping Pong Samurai. It's my favorite IPhone game. Also, I've lately been getting hooked on Hosted Games. They are word games, not arcade, but the descriptions, plus the choices you have to make, make for quite the interesting time. They are all totally accessible as far as I know.

Well, I wish there was a baseball game that could be accessible. Also, the people who made Papa Sangre made another game, The Nightjar. For some reason, it is not available in the U.S. That is a game that I would really recommend if you can find a way to get it. I've heard an audio demo of that game, and it sounds incredible, probably why it's not available in the U.S.

No doubt, I agree! The baseball game would be just the thing. There's a nice basketball Sim called iBasketball, and a nice bowling Sam called iBowl, but no baseball yet. Bummer!

Hi. Just downloaded the iBowl app just to see if I could use it but didn't really understand how to get the ball rolling. A lot of the buttons have strange labels so if you have played this let me know how you did it Kenny.

In the iBowl game, the buttons are labeled very strangely. There are two play buttons, and when you want to hit is to play classic button. Then, down toward the bottom of the screen, there's a play arrow button. Hit that. Then, it shows Lane selector. There are three lanes you can choose from. Double tap the lane you want, then pushed The button just to the right of the lane zero button. To ball, hold down the button in the middle of the screen, which says hit our something like that. Then, swing your iPhone just like we wiimote But be careful. I broke my OtterBox case doing that. You can also simply hold the phone vertically, and then swing it down to a flat position with the flick of a wrist. It's just before you're done with the swing, release that button. We only sad part is that it won't tell you how many pins you knockdown, or which pans, but it's still fun, especially as it's relatively easy to Use. Your score is also displayed, just like in real bowling, and you can read it. The iBasketball game is relatively similar, but you can just double-click on the button in the middle of the screen once you get a game going. Then, shoot your arms up into the air with a slight arc, just as if you were shooting a real basketball, and you're likely to get a basket. You'll know you succeeded because this Crabel chair. You also know if you hit the backboard issue can hear that too. By the way, when you're holding the button down and bowling, you can drag it left or right to move your possession left or right, so if you have cited helper helpers telling you what Kingie have left standing, that's the way to not come down. I find that if I move it about a quarter of a niche to the right, I can get strikes about 70% of the time.

It's technically listed in Entertainment rather than Games, but this app is a bit of fun if you have a few minutes to kill.

Check out Toy Kite software's freeware Samurai Swordfight and their paid app Critical Strike. The free version is like the paid one except you only get two opponents and don't get the low, thrust, and critical strike attacks.

Hi, I still don't understand how to play the Escape The House game. I shake the phone to get out of the chains, but, the guy comes to quickly for me to hide. I don't know how to hide. I tried just holding the phone very still, but, that didn't work. Can someone either do a podcast on the game or a really good text description? Thaks a lot in advance.

king of dragon pas is a choose you're own adventure style kind of game. It is a game where you can pick it up and then stop then come back to where you left off.

Hi, I just downloaded iBasketball after looking at this but I'm struggling to get a game started. When I open the app, I have 4 buttons, 2 "main ball" buttons and 2 unlabeled buttons. When I double tap any of these buttons nothing happens. If anyone has played this can you tell me how you did it please? Thanks

Hello, my little sister is blind and was wondering if anyone knows how to solve my problem with z-tap. She has voice over on so that she can restart the game herself but it doesn't work right with voice over. Plz help,

Submitted by sockhopsinger on Friday, July 24, 2015

Hello. The game may not be accessible. I have not tried this game, but many games are still not accessible. That may be the problem.

iSamurai and Cygnus is a good audio game. With Cygnus you use your mic to play. Also Heroes rise, and just for fun and whip someone into shape PocketWhip

Some games like Z touch work with VO turned off. Once you hit play and select the level, etc, you'll need to turn VO off. Once the game ends r you loose, turn VO back on again. Thats the only way to really play the game.

Hi guys

There is one audio game that is free and not listed hear. the game (blindscape) is free and fun. This game needs voiceover to be off to play.

Submitted by Paige on Sunday, January 3, 2016

With ZanyTouch, you need to get out of the app, close it in the app switcher, get back into it, and then press start game to start a new game.

To be honest the game blinScape is the most depressing game I played I’m not trying to bash the game it’s filled with a tun of negative stereotypes
