Accessibility Comments

As with all of Klemen's previous games VOiceOver support is excellent. When you're playing a game some extra options will appear on the rotor allowing you to quickly navigate through various game pieces or valid move locations on the board

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

Other Comments

The game selection in this app is very unique and I personally haven't heard of any of these before. Fortunately, every game has rules included in the app which also go into some background information about the origins of the game.

There's also some very atmospheric music in the main menu as well as sound effects and haptics whenever pieces are moved around the boards, making it feel much more like you're really interacting with a physical game board.

Thanks Piotr for this!

I'm gonna take a peak into here every couple of days, so if any of you have any questions or problems, let me know and I'll try to help!

I love that there is a Swedish translation. Though I found one error. "Dismiss" is "avfärda" and not "avskeda".
I will be getting the upgrade on Friday and have learned one of them and played my sister. I am proud to say I won! Three times.

Hi venova,

thanks for the kind words! My main designer is from Stockholm, so I had to include Swedish in there!
And thanks for reporting that translation issue, it should be fixed in the current version already! Please let me know (here or by writing support@strasser.app) if you see anything else localized incorrectly!

Well that sounds great, fingers crossed for more wins in the future!

Cheers!
Klemens
