Description of App: 

“Dark Echo is a brilliant, unique, and incredibly tense must-have masterpiece.” 5/5 - TouchArcade

“A masterful execution of minimalist design… play this with headphones, in the dark, alone.” - Indie Game Enthusiast

=======

Trapped in darkness, you must use sound to guide your way through threatening environments. The sounds you create will bounce off obstacles, revealing
the shape of the surrounding world. It won't be long before your only way of sensing the world attracts a horrifying evil that devours both sound and souls.

Survive through 80 levels that will make your heart race and leave you with an irrational fear of red lines. A foreboding soundscape, best experienced
with headphones, sets the tone for your journey. Explore, solve puzzles, and most importantly - stay alive.

Accessibility Comments: 

Although you are supposed to use sound to move through these levels, the sound is shown in a graphic way in the form of differently colored lines emanating from your foot steps. The sounds themselves do not guide you, making this game unusable for blind gamers.

No buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

Some parts of the app are accessible with VoiceOver, but not enough to make it usable.

Currently, you can only play this game as a blind individual if you are willing to walk around aimlessly and hope for the best.
