Spoken 21 (removed from AppStore by Apple)
An audio and graphic game of Blackjack using total verbal reinforcement and instructions. Las Vegas rules for surrender, insurance, and double down. Blackjack pays 3 to 2. Every hand is a new shuffle from a single deck of cards.
The game speaks the card values and suits as they are dealt and also the point count for each hand. Double down can be selected by a single-finger double-tap anywhere on the screen. A two-finger single-tap will silence the speech. A two-finger double-tap will give the current score and the overall highscore, turn ON/OFF the background sound, and in addition repeat the instructions.
A two-finger triple-tap provides a way for the user to reset the high score. This requires confirming with a second two-finger triple-tap before the high score is set to zero.
The first release will not include splitting pairs but this is planned for an update. The game is $.99.
Catch 52 Lite
Catch 52 Lite was featured in a recent article. Check it out at:
Catch 52 is a challenging app that will test and sharpen your timing and reflexes. VoiceOver should be turned off. With four levels of difficulty, Catch 52 will test your quickness and attention. Cards fall at random rates of speed based on the difficulty level. As a card is dropped, the app will say its name and begin beeping about halfway down the screen a bomb dropping sound is made to help judge where the bottom of the screen is located. There are two game variations, the first has you catch all the picture cards (jacks, queens, and kings) and the second has you catch cards of a particular suit. The game is played by catching the desired cards as close to the bottom of the screen as possible and rejecting the other cards as quickly or near to the top as possible. Cards are caught by pressing the right side of the screen and rejected by pressing the left side of the screen. Scores are proportionate to the speed and how near the top they are rejected and how close to the bottom they are caught. The game ends when the deck is finished or when you miss three times.
Catch 52 uses Game Center so that you can challenge your friends and get to the top of the leaderboard or earn extra achievements.
Game settings and preferences are selected by tapping the screen. A two finger single tap will stop the speech. A two finger double tap will repeat the instructions and a two finger triple tap will change the difficulty.
Spoken WAR is an audible card game offering sound effects, leaderboard point scoring, military rank based on the number of wars won, quick game (half deck), and crazy sounds when there's a war. Spoken War uses a shuffling algorithm that attempts to prevent cat (tie) games. The game is accessible and can be enjoyed by both sight and visually impaired players.
A single screen tap will play the game and a double tap with one finger will say the current game statistics.
For each winning hand. points equal to the difference between the cards (ie, King and a 4 (four) is K=13 and a four=4 or 9 (nine) points is added to your score. These are added to your high score and posted to the leaderboard at the end of each game. Points are not deducted for loses but no new high scores are posted either.
A settings screen is called using the upper right button. Settings switches for Quick Game (half deck), background sound, speaking of card names during play, and crazy war sounds can be turned on and off. Below the buttons are written instructions and a button to return to the game. This will keep the game progress.
