Seeking feedback and suggestions for the Blindfold series of iOS games

App Developer

Tennis is on my list of games. Would people want the game to use arm movements like the Wii, or use your finger on the screen?

Also, are there any other games or suggestions that you have for the Blindfold series of iOS games?

I may look into that for the future. Maybe combine it with an iTunes music download option.

#602 Telling VoiceOver to stop speaking & cancel queued announcements

App Developer

Hi Marty,

I think there was some other thread where you mentioned that the lack of an API to stop VoiceOver announcements (current & queued) was preventing you from utilizing VoiceOver announcements and making your games as accessible as possible. If it's useful to you or anyone else, I have found some workarounds that I am using successfully in our FlickType Keyboard, and the code is open source. Here's the relevant file with my TextToSpeech class

Hope this helps, and I'd be happy to provide any additional help on this if you need it.

Warmly, Kosta

Is there anyway you could make the basketball game multi-player? Kind of like a horse style game, or a shoot out type game.

#611 Game suggestion.

Hi Marty. I’m new to AppleVis, and it’s my first time posting a comment. But I’m very interested in parenting. I’ve played blindfold doggy, and I love it! I was wondering though, if you could create a blindfold parenting game? Like with children in stead of animals? I’d like to raise my child from exactly the first day of bringing the child home from the hospital, waking up to it at night, feeding and changing, all that caring stuff. And I’d like the child to grow up. I’d also like the ability to teach the child words, and it can learn phrases, go to school. You know, the basic Mommy stuff. I’d like to raise it up to 18 years. I’d create something like this myself, but I wouldn’t know the first thing about programming and game development. Thank you so much. Loving your games so far

#612 I totally agree!! And maybe

I totally agree!! And maybe have it kind of be like the sims, where the kids have skill levels that have to reach a certain amount before they can age up. Like toddlers need to reach potty training skill level 3 and stuff like that.

I like the idea, but it's awfully complex. I have a daughter who's ready to head to college and it was quite a journey for us. Anyway, I'll think about it - I've been pretty busy pulling together what we need the new company Objective Ed (see
