Audio games for iPad

iOS & iPadOS Gaming

My girlfriend recently gave me an iPad Air 2, (yes, she's great), and I was wondering if there are any audio games that work especially well on an iPad. I have played some iOS audio games, but I'm by no means an expert. Was hoping some of you could chime in and tell me about games you feel could work well. Hoping for some interesting replies. Thanks in advance!

I don't have an iPad but I can imagine some good games. I think sixth sense would work very well. Also, try ear monsters and mouse kick. There is also supposed to be a game where you have to draw certain shapes, but I don't know what it would be. Also, Do-it-write or however they spell it should work well too. You can also try Bop it, catch 52, and the destino games. ALL those should work well, without having to tilt or move the iPad. Nijman has a bunch of games in the app store, like checkers and chess, and Steve Melzer has a Mexican train domino game. There is also accessible othello, a simon game called Glow, a tictacdo with friends game. There are tons, so just browse the app directory by category. The only one you won't find is the domino train game, but that's on Phil Vlasac's site, PCS games. Good luck, and happy hunting!

Maybe I explained myself badly. I was thinking games that would either use the iPad's extra space for something, or just work better on the iPad than on an iPhone. It was only an idle thought, I didn't think there actually were any games like this, but it would be cool if some clever person could come up with a game that gave visually impaired people something special for an iPad. I'm thinking maybe board games with audio, games where one could use the bigger screen for more controls, or something along those lines.
Sorry for just rambling on, but maybe someone could get an idea from my ramblings and make something good... :)

Hey I have an audio game you can try. It's called A Blind Legend. You can find it on the AppleVis iOS app directory. You walk around with your daughter and you play as Edward Blake. Your daughter in the game is your eyes. You also get to fight monsters and evil soldiers.
Your wife in the game has been captured, and she needs help. Finish all the levels and prepare to battle the king with your sword.
Danger awaits your character!
The first few scenes start out simple with a robotic voice teaching you how to walk, draw your sword, block, and more!

Hi. I also bought an ipad air 2 and I tried some games. In general, I am not shure if there are different games as we already know from the iphone, but what I can say is that you can try for example playing blindfold bowling. You can have better results comparing with ipod touch or iphone screen. The size between lines is bigger than iphones or ipods.
