A Demonstration of Crafting Kingdom

Member of the AppleVis Editorial Team

In this podcast, William Lomas demonstrates Crafting Kingdom, an iOS game that has recently become popular among many in the blind community.

The following description is quoted from the app store:

Every empire starts small!

Build production sites, and start crafting resources. Harvest logs, coal, iron and many other goods. Then craft them into more valuable items and sell them on the market! Complete quests, build your own estate, and become the richest merchant in all of Crafting Kingdom!

Crafting Kingdom is a lovingly crafted (pun intended!) idle crafting game with a huge amount of goods to produce, complex production chains and plenty of quests for you to complete.

  • Buy production sites
  • Build complex production chains
  • Complete quests and get powerful rewards
  • Expand your storage facilities
  • Build you very own estate
  • Endless hours of fun. How much money can you make?

Note to our visually impaired players: This game is fully accessible with VoiceOver. Should the accessibility mode not turn on automatically, you can enable it by tapping on the screen three times with three fingers. Have fun!

This game works with iOS 8 or above.

With the latest update I noticed some changes in performance. It is supposed to improve performance, but on my phone it did not. There are however a couple of tricks. If you let your store fill up completely everything stops in the buildings. When that happens it makes it a lot this year to play. If you let your boosts run out something similar happens. If you turn off sound effects and music that may also help boost performance. I would also like to suggest a screen button that is only accessible by flicking left and right. This is similar to what they did in Solara. If we can have a button like this maybe we can have an alternate way of accessing menus for the buildings and have none of the graphics make the game slow down for us. Also if accessibility mode can be accessed by going through the settings on the iPhone instead of having to launch the app directly that would help us out.

Before I ask my question, let me begin by saying, I am extremely new to playing games on my iPhone. So, maybe I’m doing something wrong. But the one thing I’ve noticed is, when I double tap on things or do anything, it’s hard for me to activate anything. Basically it’s hard for me to use the game.
