MouseKick: a new and accessible iOS game

Member of the AppleVis Editorial Team

Jan Blüher, the developer of the ColorVisor app, has just launched a new iOS game called MouseKick. The basic premise of the game is that you have to tap mice as they appear in a piece of cheese. The app may be used by sighted and blind users. It has an animation, but the mice also do have their individual sounds, which guide you to the right position on screen. To get an impression on the MouseKick sound, there is a trailer on YouTube at: MouseKick is a 99 cents download from the iTunes App Store at. Jan did very kindly give us some promo codes, but these have all now been claimed. We're looking forward to hearing what the recipients think of this game. Jan says that the game is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but it would be very much appreciated if one of the people who gets a promo code would submit MouseKick to our App Directory with their own findings.

When I try to tap mice on the right, it currently thinks I'm tapping in the center. This is for all positions. This makes this game rather unplayable as a result. I've put the device into portrait as the game does tell you to do that, and left and center positions work fine, it's just the right side. It might be best to wait for an update before downloading this one.

Hallo jukesy1992, thank you for finding this bug. I am sorry that it is there, however. The bug seems to appear when your phone is locked in horizontal mode. For some reason, the game view rotates in portrait, then, although it is meant to be in landscape. If you unlock your device orientation, everything works fine. This issue will be corrected in the next update, of course. Greetings Jan

I have this game, and tried the training mode, but several squeeks come out of each example, and I'm none the wiser they also say you have to kick the white mouse twice, but I can't get the hang of it either. Took it off my iphone for the time being.

Hi. for the white mice the sound will be there with two popping sounds so you know you have to kick them twice. Grey mice have a kind of mmm sound over the squeak and the black mice have like a bong sound. the squeaks let you know the position e.g. a real high pitch squeak means top right or left. a kind of heh heh sound is in the center etc. I hope this helps somewhat.

I'd love to thank the developer for bringing us a such cool fantasy and entertaining game. I've been playing this game since the first day and never had problems with the app.

I would like to play the game on iOS 11 and later but we need a 64 bit version of it. Is anything planned??? This was the best game ever.

Yes, it is. However, the problem is that the game doesn't support 64 bit so it can't run on iOS 11 and later.
