Games and blind players - discussion and recomendation thread

Hello



I want to discuss here iphone games and blind accessibility to these.

At the beginning of this post i want to write my english isn't my first language, so sorry for eventually mistakes etc.


I have iphone from maybe a month, and i am testing games wich can be playable for the blind using voiceover or only audio if it's great and enough to play.


I know and have some audio only games like papa sangre, wich is really amazing game, or soul trapper and lastly bop it from EA.


Reason why i am posting here this topic is maybe you can recommend me something more, something playable for me. All of you have voiceover cause it's builded in IOS in from 3GS so maybe you can test some games from your collections and give a suggestions here.

I found a brilliant game called infinity blade, it's really amazing if we are talking about sound design, stereo panning etc. I can play this game a bit, fighting perfectly, but problem is in reading text on the screen like items, stats etc, i've tried on facebook to devs of this game and don;t know if their are opened for blind players or not. Maybe here developers can read it and do something. And if someone can explain a little screen in the infinity blades. I am moving on the map like left / right / up / down pointing and clicking? or map looks like there's elements like items, monsters to click?


Thanks for every kind of informations and suggestions.


Okay, let's start and we'll see what will be going on with it.


Best


Tom

Not many options for you here, but how about Flip It! ? Its like bopit, but with flipping instead of touching. Very fun. And should be even better for a bline person than bopit, right?
