Hatchi two, accessible?

iOS and iPadOS

Hi all. The same people who made hatchi came out with hatchi two. You can breed hatchis now. Here is my question. Does anyone know if it is accessible? I would like to know before I buy it. Any help would be appreciated. App Store link is as follows, thanks.

Hi. I read on Twitter last night that it is, and I'm quoting here, "Almost unusable with VoiceOver". Apparently you cannot hatch eggs nor get to any of the menu items. To be honest this does not surprise me. I have asked Portable Pixels several questions via their Twitter feed and written them several Emails concerning both Alien hatchi and this new app and have received no answer on any point. This is really a terrible shame as they used to be so responsive and so very very accessibility conscious. I'm afraid all we can do is go on trying to contact them, maybe someone else will have better luck, and in the meantime save your dollar.

This is very Is very disappointing. I to have contacted them with no luck. Who knows, maybe they will fix it in future, but for now, I am very disappointed.

Hi there! I asked this same question a few days ago, and was told that the new game isn't accessible at all. If anyone ever finds out differently, I'd love to be proven wrong, but for now, I'm going to trust the advice I was given and save my money.

Okay, I wrote the people who wrote hatchi, and here's the message they wrote. I am very disappointed in this company. I will not be buying in future.
Hatchi, 12:23 PM, Hi Cat,

I'm sorry to say that Hatchi 2 does not have voice over accessibility. I'm afraid there isn't a planned update to add it in the near future. If you want to request a refund for the app, you can follow this guide here: http://www.labnol.org/software/itunes-app-store-refunds/13838/, How to Get Refunds from the iTunes App Store, www.labnol.org, This tutorial describes how you can return apps, games, iBooks, in-app purchases and other iTunes Store purchases and get full refunds from Apple.

Just because they don't add accessibility to their game doesn't mean there a bad company. I personally played hatchy 1, and it was alright. Honestly I was shocked at how accessible it was. I'm not surprised they didn't add accessibility to this version. At least they gave you a refund link most company's as far as I know wouldn't have done that.
