Any other 'audio only' games like Papa Sangre

Good after touch arcade fans...

I was wondering if anyone knew of any other 'audio only' based games much like Papa Sangre.

A game where the user plays using headphones and is involved in a game through sound more so than the visuals.

Cheers

Yes, there has been a second one with a Space Theme, but I dont recall its name. It was free but only available in some App Stores though. I remember wanting to try it, but it was not available in my country.

Hey thanks for the reply.

Yeah your right, there is another game made by the same people as papa sangre, it's free to download but doesn't seem to work with ios5 . I guess it's the same error as papa sangre as they say they are fixing a bug for that at the moment.


Edit... its called 'The Nightjar'... and features Benedict Cumberbatch who plays Sherlock in the BBCs excellent Sherlock series...

Any more?

The TouchArcade Podcast isn't a game, but it's audio only :-)

Yep, seems like they removed it from the App Store until its fixed. Ive almost finished it back then, so I want to have another go at it. Its a very special experience.

Id love that Space Themed Audio Game to be released worldwide too. Just charge for it and give it to us, there is no reason not to do that.

EA have a game called auditorium which is mostly audio, but you have to move a few on-screen objects to change the sound.

Also try the Inception app. (as in the Leonardo DiCaprio film). You wear headphones with a mic, and depending on ambient noises and time of day, the music changes accordingly. Pretty epic.

If something online is free, you are not the customer - you are the product.

Slug Bugs and Aves both have visual aspects, but make good use of binaurial audio.

thanks...

thanks for the replies guys and gals..

I think I'll have a crack at making my own audio game... already started a bit of it and I've got a basic game function working on my phone. Controlling your character using the accelerometer and using stereo (not full 3d) sound to work out your position... fingers crossed it evolves into a decent game...

I'll put some progress videos and what not up on my site once it gets a bit further.

Thanks again for all the links and hints... any more very welcome.
