In this podcast, Thomas Domville gives us a walk-through and demonstration of Zany Touch, a Bop-It Style game for iOS.!”
The game tests your reflexes against faster and faster challenges. Listen for the instruction and do it as fast as you can -- touch, swipe up, swipe down, swipe left, swipe right, shake, pinch, and two finger touch.
- Three difficulty settings: Easy, Medium, and Hard.
- Easy level uses three gestures. Medium level uses five. Hard level uses all eight.
- Tracks high scores and previous scores for each difficulty setting on the device.
- Post scores to Twitter and Facebook.
- Post scores and check your rankings with Apple Game Center leaderboards and achievements.
- Fully integrated with Voice Over to make this a great game for the blind and visually impaired.
I hope that Zany Touch comes to the Australian App Store very soon.
i am surprised it has taken so long to mention this game it has been around hor several years or has it altered since its initial release?
Yes, this is not a new title or a new game at all. As mentioned in this podcast I mentioned at the beginning of the podcast that this has been around for many years. I was also surprised that this had never been reviewed or had a podcast. So, I thought it rightfully deserved one! ;)
My main reasoning for making this podcast was to reach those that have never heard of this game and for people to know that this can be used as a learning tool to teach those new to the devices the various gestures that might help when trying to grasp how to perform a gesture.
hi annonymouse try the game flipit!
Zany Touch is already in the australian app store.
make sure you type it as two words and not one.
I think it comes up as zany touch lite. It's free to download, with in app purchases.
As the developer of Zany Touch I just wanted to express my thanks for such a wonderful, thorough and helpful review of the app. I'm intrigued to hear that it is being used for training as well as just for fun. That is simply fantastic. If there is anything we can do to make it a better app please don't hesitate to let me know.
I love this game. I'm also sad that Flip It is no longer supported. That was a great game.
Always glad to see an app developer who actually engages with their user base.
I'm not sure if this is a possible bug, or after a certain level, the game is unable to be paused.
I noticed this when I'm around the 100, 150 mark, it's around the time when you don't get those little pauses in the game where the little kid says stuff like faster faster.
I think it's around the levels of insane fast where I encounter this.
It would be great if you could please look into this, because, let's face it, even though you lose points for pausing, it is a very useful feature.
I would also like to be able to somehow check my current score. Could your score be read out automatically if you are using voiceover?
Another quirk I seem to have found is after one of my game centre friends started playing.
It use to tell me my score over all in game centre, but when you start to have your game centre friends play, it lists your ranking among friends.
You actually need to look through the game centre scores to see your over all rank
Try scrolling through over 800 players on easy and find your score.
It is a lot easier when you don't have game centre friends playing cause then it just tells you.
Apart from that, it is a nice little time waster.
I love this game but in Sweden it is called Zany Touch Lite. Don't know why. This link does not work. You gave me a good laugh there.
