Braillemon, an audio port of the popular Pokemon Games.
Braillemon is a port of Pokemon, Pokémon Red and Blue, a role-playing video game for Nintendo's Game Boy.
being developed for those with visual impairments or blindness.
Red and Blue are in a third-person view,
overhead perspective and consist of three basic screens:
an overworld, in which the player navigates the main character;
a side-view battle screen;
and a menu interface, in which the player configures his or her Pokémon, items, or gameplay settings.
The player can use his or her Pokémon to battle other Pokémon.
When the player encounters a wild Pokémon
or is challenged by a trainer, the screen switches to a turn-based battle screen that displays the engaged Pokémon.
During battle, the player may select a maneuver for his or her Pokémon to fight using one of four moves,
use an item, switch his or her active Pokémon, or attempt to flee.
Pokémon have hit points (HP);
when a Pokémon's HP is reduced to zero, it faints and can no longer battle until it is revived.
Once an enemy Pokémon faints, the player's Pokémon involved in the battle receive a certain number of experience points (EXP).
After accumulating enough EXP, a Pokémon will level up.
The ultimate goal of the game is to capture all 151 creatures.
The game is completely sound based and can be played without even a monitor!
Braillemon is currently in the early stages of development, but it has many testers to ensure the quality of the code.
I hope that in the future Braillemon will be able to communicate with other computers to enable live battles, trading, and the like,
as well as eventually being able to access every region in the Pokemon games!
-I plan on implementing server technology, probably on a subscription or "credits" basis.
The game will be free to play for the single player mode though.
This is because servers are expensive, after all, and this is honestly a huge endeavour.
To comply with copyright laws the final product will require that you have a Pokemon red/blue rom in order to run.
This file is a .gb file and technically in order to have it you must own the game itself.
Colors - A game where everyone's soul has a splash of color.
The Game is an an RPG with mechanics based around HTML colors.
To a sighted player, it's essentially a goofy RPG that draws heavily from Golden Sun and Suikoden,
that utilizes a lot of different weird parts of a computer that people don't normally think about (most notably text to speech) to express parts of the game.
The story is primarily about colors, yes, but there are blind characters in the game
and more importantly the story is about how a society surrounding color causes people who can experience color to essentially be controlled by it,
while the blind are rejected for not understanding it, but are free from the binds of seeing life in color.
Color is essentially a vague analogy for various social differences.
I kind of see the game as being a game about colors and blind people.

Piotr Machacz's PM's world.
Piotr Machacz, Pitermach's PCS Breakout game rewrite for Windows,Audio Games Forum page.
Is your hand and ear coordination up to demolishing wall after wall of objects?
Breakout brings back the nostalgia of early video gaming days.
You shoot a ball with increasing speed into layers of walls with real sounds.
Breakout contains four game variations, bust through, clear the wall, squeeze play and stretch to breaking where you can break glass, smash cups, pop balloons and try to beat your highest score.
When you start a level, you will hear your score and number of walls announced.
Then you will land on the game board, which is made out of as few as 7 or as many as 18 columns of hblocks 9 layers high.
The cursor will scan this board from left to right, then when it hits the edge you will hear a spring sound and the cursor will reverse direction.
As it moves, you will hear every block it passes. At any point, you can press space, enter or the up arrow to shoot at the column of blocks the cursor is on.
You can make up to 3 shots before you run out of ammo, at which point you have to wait for the cursor to hit an edge.
If the sound of a column is higher, it means that one or more layers there have been destroyed - the higher the sound the more destruction there is.
Your main goal in all modes except clear the wall, is to destroy all 9 blocks in any column to move on to the next wall.
There is 15 of them in total but you can end the game at any time by pressing escape, or pause it by pressing P.
The 4 game modes, are explained below.
Your goal is to destroy any column to move on to the next level.
The board is 7 blocks wide.
Clear the wall.
Your goal here, unlike in all the other modes, is to completely clear the wall - IE destroy every column of blocks.
Just like in bust through, the board is 7 blocks wide.
In this mode, you start with a wall 15 blocks wide, and your goal is to clear out a single column to move to the next wall.
The twist here is that every time the cursor hits the edge of the board, it will shrink by 1 and you will lose a point.
This shrinking will continue until you either manage to move to the next level, or when there’s nothing left, at which point you will get squished and the game will end.
Stretch to breaking.
This mode is an opposite to squeeze play. Your goal and scoring works just like above. You start with a board 7 blocks wide, and every time the cursor hits an edge, the board will grow and you will lose a point.
The board can grow to be a maximum of 18 blocks wide. You will get a warning at each end if it’s about to happen.
If it tries to get even bigger, it will break and the game will end.
The name of the game and the modes are the same because I couldn't really think of anything better.
Game play is pretty much unchanged. Compared to the original it has 15 walls vs 13 as well as background music, plus a few more audio queues to show how well you're scoring.
I also changed the bust through mode a bit so you can get some bonus points if you can aim well so you can expect to get higher scores than in the original.
There is a readme included if you've never played the original breakout before.
Robjoy's Erion's Realm, Angel Gift page.
Robjoy's Erion's Realm, Audio Games Forum page.
Home of Angel Gift: the adventure begins, version 1.03.
Follow Lyriel, the weakest angel in heaven as she disobeys her fellow angels, flies down to earth and investigates a mysterious coldness spreading in a tiny village.
Remember that Lyriel is supposed to be the weakest angel. Thus, anything conventional won't work when it comes to combat.
Your range, thus, is smaller than the demons'.
Houses are meant to be helpful in the development of Lyriel's character, but they are also physical obstacles.
Demons always try to follow you. Try to drag them closer to you, so that they are in range and shoot.
Timing and speed is very very important, especially when the lesser demons appear.
The E key plays a sound in stereo to tell you how much energy you have.
Remember, each time you use your abilities, your energy goes down. If it reaches 0, you will have to go back to heaven and regenerate.
You can do this only a couple of times until you lose motivation to continue.
Use your abilities only when you absolutely need to, Lyriel is only a fledging angel, after all.
The boss is not easy. Do not stay near him when he casts his spells.
Blasting him won't work, but you might be able to surround him with your gifts.
The bell sound indicates the middle of the area as well as the position of the boss.
The up arrow makes Lyriel float.
The houses are challenging, because they are one step wide. Make sure you are always next to the house,
float until you hear a woosh-like sound, let go of the up arrow, press right or left once and wait till she lands.
Then hold D until you hear the scene inside the house, hit control to charge your energy and select the gift you think is correct,
j for joy,
l for love or
p for peace.

Home of Park Boss, a free amusement park simulator.
You can build an amusement park from the ground up. As the boss everything regarding your park is under your control.
The rides you add, the staff you employ and how much you pay them,
the types of meals you serve, how much to charge for them, the advertising, dealing with situations which arise and balancing the need to keep your visitors happy with making money.
Remember that unless you make money you can’t build new attractions.
There is no end to the game.
You can keep playing and building as long as you like.
Initially the park is in a grid of 10 by 10 squares.
There are over 70 attractions you can build along with 15 different zones you can setup.
Every so often you’ll get an offer to by the park. This is equivalent to selling up and taking the money. When you do sell then you invest all the money in to purchasing new land and you start all over again.
The game play is pretty simple. Nearly everything in Park Boss is a menu.
Use the arrow keys to adjust values or select menu options, enter to activate and escape to save you're setting and go back.
Most of the work is done in the office. From here you can access all the various options available to you.
It’s also important to walk around the park. Not only does it give you a sense of what you’ve created, it also gives you the opportunity to enjoy some of the attractions but more importantly speak to your guests.
Dotris is a computer game played on a refreshable Braille display.
The purpose of the game is to build a wall of dots using the shapes provided.
A refreshable Braille Display is a Piece of equipment consisting of a number of electric Braille cells where small pins are raised and lowered to make the Braille letters.
Very little Braille knowledge is needed to play the game as the shapes which are used don't conform to any Braille code.
Payment For The Game.
There is no charge for downloading Dotris, but it is not free.
Users are expected to make a donation of how much they value the game.
The donations made by users will not go to N A Soft or anyone associated with it.
The donations are to be given via the www.NDAdamson.com website, the home of N A Soft, to support the ClearVision Children’s Library who encourage the use and learning of Braille by turning print books for children in to Braille.
This means that blind children can learn to read Braille with there sighted parent or a blind parent can read to their sighted children.
The ClearVision library are not involved with the development of Dotris and are not responsible with its on going support, maintenance or any aspect of game development.
the ClearVision Libraries single involvement with Dotris is as a beneficiary of donations received. He is doing this as the decline in Braille skills have a significant impact on the ability of a blind person to communicate.
Braille teaches the correct use of punctuation and spelling often missed when using speech synthesisers.
Dotris is his contribution to help slow this decline and introduce Braille to the next generation of readers.

This produces a number from 1 to 10. Your ship then travels two hundred thousand miles times this number.
For example, if you spin a 6, you travel one million, two hundred thousand miles toward Mars on that spin of the wheel.

Home of the multiplayer client version 1.4 capable of playing Apples to Apples, Yahtzee, Monopoly, Uno, Battleship and Blackjack.
It has the ability to be played on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
Apples to Apples.
An easy game to learn. Everyone in the table is first dealt seven red cards. These red cards are nouns or noun phrases.
One player in the table is designated a "judge" for the round.
The judge flips over a different kind of card, called a green card. The green cards are adjectives.
On both cards, descriptions are also printed to help augment understanding of the word.
It is the job of all players who aren't a judge to pick one of their red cards to go along the green card.
Once all players have submitted their red cards to the judge, the judge picks the best red card that matches the green card.
The judge may pick whatever card they wish, however, the official rules encourage the judge to pick the red card that is the "most creative, humorous or interesting".
The judge switches every round, every person will get the opportunity to be a judge.
(Note that judges do not submit their own card).
The winner of the round gets to keep the green card, they serve as score.
The judge does not know who submitted what card, and whoever the judge picks wins the round.
2 other variations.
Each player selects a red card from their hand before the judge flips over the green card.
After the red cards are handed in, the judge turns over a green card.
The judge selects the winning red card as usual.
This variation can be fun and challenging, as you do not know what card you need to match!
2 for 1 Apples
The judge flips over two apple cards to start each round.
All players (except the judge) select a red apple card from his/her hand that is best matched by both green cards.
The winner of the round shall receive both green cards to keep.
This variation can be a blast, it awards twice the amount of cards!

After a violent storm smashed your ship against some rocks, you, and your fellow survivors wash up on the shore of a hostile land filled with Goblins.
Using the limited supplies, scattered across the beach from your ship, you must put together a settlement to keep your people from starving.
This game takes place during the timeframe of mission 6 in Castaways.
Only starting a single player game will play the game's intro (currently), and I do recommend you check out the ending story to Castaways 1 first,
so that the intro story makes more sense. It basically continues right where the ending story leaves off.
The "About game" menu contains a summary of the Castaways 1 story, as well as the ending story.
1) Start out by collecting long grass, sticks, and rocks. Weave the grass/straw into twine and it allows you go make tools.
2) Building a house is good because it lets you buy/breed additional people. Multi-tasking more jobs is way nicer than doing them only 2 at a time.
3) To get food going, from the storehouse you can buy a random food crop, cash crop, or livestock. I recommend food crop so you have some source of food coming in, unless you are lucky enough to have a handful of apple trees on your land.
4) To get more money coming in, you need to dig up precious metals. Building a mine lets you access the underground layer of the map.

Swamp, the multiplayer on-line first person shooting game, version 3.4.
Requires Aprone's Accessible Games account,
$24 per year,
You and your friends are in an abandoned shack near a swamp that has many types of zombies.
Canine zombies, giant, normal, lamprey,reaper, stalker, Matriarch,and tyrant zombies.
The goal is to simply kill as many zombies as you can before you die.
You start out with about twelve weapons. An Axe, Pistol, Shotgun, Hunting Rifle.
MP5, Assault Rifle, Benelli, Chainsaw,
Sniper Rifle, M60 and Vulcan Minigun.
To find your way out, you use the safe area door becon on shift tilda.
Move mouse left or right to rotate yourself.
Press the left mouse button to fire your gun.
Press the right mouse button to move forward.
- The B key repeats the direction you must go to reach your selected beacon.
A mouse, trackpad, touch screen, or trackball are required to control your direction, walking and shooting.
When holding the mouse, keep your thumb and pinky on the sides of the mouse, so you can easily pick it up by lifting your thumb.
The pinky doesn't lift up, it just acts as the axis of rotation when the mouse is tilted,
in fact when i do it, the right edge of the mouse never loses contact with the table surface.
This will tilt the mouse up, allowing you to slide the mouse left or right without the virtual cursor actually moving.
you can then put the mouse back down, and continue moving it, repeat as necessary.
so for instance, if i wanted to do a 180 in swamp, i may need to move the mouse a total of six inches.
assuming the mouse is in the center of my little area, i slide the mouse right 2 inches, tilt it up, move it back to the left 4 inches, place it back down, and then to the right 4
inches. Then i reset it back to the center, so i'm ready to rotate either direction if a baddie pops up.
i keep my wrist planted on the keyboard stand the whole time, so my arm does not move.
this takes some practice, but if your new to the mouse, fire up swamp,
and just practice this technique by checking your heading with the w key, and see if you can nail going from north to east back and forth for a bit.
after a few minutes, you'll get the hang of it, and you'll be blowing away the undead in no time.
Castaways, version 2.5.
a roleplaying, strategy game.
Now with 7 missions.
Mission 1. After a violent storm smashed your ship against some rocks, you, and your fellow survivors wash up on the shore of a hostile land filled with Goblins. Using the limited supplies scattered across the beach from your ship, you must put together a settlement to keep your people from starving.
Mission 2. You need to build a war tent. From there, you can send your troops off to the yeti city to kill the yeti.
Mission 3. You are attempting to start up a settlement to plunder the area's resources, and build up catapults that will be shipped back to serve in your nation's army.
You need to build 12 catapults to win the game, but the other nations will send troops to try to stop you.
Mission 4. You need to stop zombies and the plague.
Mission 5. adds 2 new buildings, adds a new feature to 2 existing buildings, a new job type, a new unit type, and 2 new resources.
If you manage to beat this final mission, you will be rewarded with a very long story.
The story will get people excited, especially if you figure out the connections it makes.
Building placement is important. You are required to choose 2 "perks", and 1 "fault" when you begin a new game. These 2 benefits, and 1 disadvantage, will uniquely change the way your game experience will go.
Rather than controlling each individual unit, Castaways takes more of a macro management approach. When you build a Tavern, any peasants will automatically work to keep it stocked with supplies.
When you make a Hunter, he, or she, will automatically travel out into the woods to hunt. The challenge is, finding the proper balance, and knowing what to build, and when.
There are 22 types of units, 17 types of buildings, and you have to manage 17 different resources.
There is no installer. Just unzip Castaways.zip and go into the created folder and look for castaways.exe to run it.
You can find a list of hot keys in the file readMe.txt

Daytona and the Book of gold.
The game is centered around quick action, memorization, and hand coordination skills.
A mouse or track pad will be required to play this game.
The story of the game is that you are an impoverished wizard who has come across a spell capable of conjuring magical [gold] coins out of thin air!
Obviously such a spell would solve all of your troubles but the spell is quite difficult. Coins are easily created but they will simply turn in to smoke and vanish unless the mystical gateway can be made stable with the spell.
Speed and accuracy is the only way to stabilize the magic gateway through its different stages (levels).

In your mind, you must work on associating his new words with the old ones, so that you can still understand him well enough to complete the next task.
It really doesn't take long before he is rambling off gibberish to you, and expecting you to understand him.
Complete all 40 of his tasks and you win!

2 puzzles are in the game for now, but it should be more than enough to keep someone busy.
They are designed to make you really think! At first glance you may think they are math puzzles, but in truth there is very little need for any mathematical equations.
If you think things through carefully, you'll be fine.
The turn based, time traveling, puzzle game.
You awaken in a government facility deep underground. You don't know how long they have been studying you, but you have been kept in a drug induced, unconscious state, to prevent you from escaping.
Through some type of mistake, you have awaken. Keeping you unconscious was this facility's first line of defense against the most powerful human ever to walk the earth.
Using your powers, to jump forward and backward through time, you must escape the lab they have been keeping you in.
This game requires you to keep careful track of what you have already done, as well as planning ahead for what you intend to still do.
Traveling through time means you will share the environment with all other instances of yourself who were present at that time.
Confusing? If you jump back in time, you may run through a room where a past version of yourself is busy attacking the guards.
When you hold open a door now, later you will travel back in time to this point in order to run through it!
With everything going on, you must always be careful not to run into any past versions of yourself, or you will destroy the continuity of events and lose the game.
Towers of war
A tower defense game.
This is a stratogy game played on a grid like map.
The map contains a pathway which weaves it's way from bottom to top of the grid.
Upon a signal a bunch of beasties will troop up the path, and for every nasty that makes it to the end the player loses a life.
Fortunately, the player can build a variety of artillery towers on the land around the path which will, ---- hopefully shoot down the unpleasant hoard before they make it to the end.
These include rifle towers, cannon towers and the dreaded micro wave tower!
The business of aggressive building works however is complicated by a rather limited budgit (though shooting down monsters will give more cash), and the need to place towers to best advantage in order to cover the maximum area of the path and take care of the passing ugglies.
For those trying to play the game with Windows 7 or Vista, those operating systems do not come with the needed visual basic libraries.
Once you extract the game, search for the file

If doing this and the game is still not working, install the winkit from Jim Kitchen's website.
That game also uses visual basic, so it should install the needed VB libraries.

Greenies escape, inspired from a game popular in 90s, redone in a refreshed version and of course accessible for us.
Please note that this is a beta. There are still bugs and there aren't much contents (only 8 levels).
Genre: solo strategy/reflexion
Greenies are small living beings who look a little like mushrooms and who mainly live in the forest.
Following a critical ecological catastrophy which destroyed their home forest, they decided to begin a journey with the hope to find a new green place to live comfortably.
Unfortunately, greenies aren't very smart, they tend to always go strate away, ignoring dangers. For them, making such a trip would allmost lead to a collective suicide.
However, their boss, who is a little smarter, had the idea to call a guide who will help and look after them during their journey. Believe it or not, but they chose an human to do that task, inspite the fact that the destruction of their environment was caused by human's activities.
You are the one they chose. Don't lead them to the death and don't make them regret their choice !
greenies escape is quite a difficult game, and that you must absolutely read the readme file before playing. all your comments, suggestions, opinions are welcome.

You start out with one planet and have to gradually expand and build up an empire of colonized worlds, while defending it from other empires trying to do the same thing.

The Jaws cursor or equivalent is still needed, but all elements are readable with it.
An entire game can be played, it just takes effort on the player's part.

Philip Bennefall's BlastBay Studios games.
Home of The free online strategy board game called Jungle.
Jungle (also known as Dou Shou Qi, Jungle Chess or Animal Chess) is a Chinese strategy board game for two players.
While the game is easy to learn, it is far from trivial to master.
This incarnation of the game contains a basic computer opponent with whom you can practice,
and it also features an online lobby where you can find opponents from all over the world.
The game currently runs on Windows, with support for other platforms planned based on interest.
The game is played on a board of nine rows and seven columns.
The board has several special areas: each player has a den, which is surrounded by three traps.
In the middle of the board there are two lakes.
Each player has eight pieces, and each of these pieces have a strength.
The pieces are ordered as follows (from strongest to weakest):
A piece can capture any other piece of equal or lower strength, with two exceptions.
An elephant cannot capture a rat, but a rat can capture an elephant
(apparently by crawling into its ear and eating its brain).
Each piece moves one square horizontally or vertically not diagonally.
The rat is the only animal that is allowed to go to a water square.
none of the other animals may move to a water square.
The lion and the tiger may jump over the water, when going in a horizontal or vertical straight line.
They jump from a square at the border of a lake to another square at the border of the same lake.
When jumping, there may not be a rat (neither a friendly nor an enemy one) on any of the squares that are crossed.
However, there may be an enemy rat on the square that is landed on in which case the usual rules of capture come into effect.
You capture a piece by moving a stronger piece (or a piece of equal strength) to the square containing that piece.
When jumping, lions and tigers can capture pieces that are on the square they land on.
The rat cannot capture another rat or an Elephant if they are on different terrain
so a rat in Water cannot capture an Elephant on Land, and a rat on Land cannot capture a rat in Water.
Pieces that are in one of the opponent's trap squares can be captured by any other piece, with the exception that an elephant still cannot capture a rat).
A player can move into their own trap square without any special effects.
in other words they can be taken by enemy pieces as per the usual capturing rules.
A player may not move a piece to their own den.
A player wins the game by moving a piece into the den of the opponent, or by capturing all of the opponent's pieces.
The arrow keys are used to move in menus, and the enter key selects the current item.
You can also use home, end, page up and page down for quicker navigation in menus with a lot of items.
During the game, you use the four arrow keys to navigate across the board.
To make a move, find the piece that you would like to move, hold down the control key and then press the arrow key corresponding to the direction in which you would like to move the piece.
There are also keystrokes which will take you directly to a given piece on the board. They are as follows:
E - elephant
L - lion
T - tiger
O - leopard
D - dog
W - wolf
C - cat
R - rat
If you hold down shift while pressing one of these keys, it will take you to the enemy piece instead.
If the piece that you are trying to jump to has been captured and is no longer on the board,
you will hear an error noise and your position on the board is unchanged.
Blastbay Game Toolkit, version 1.3.
Direct link to the Blastbay Game Toolkit page.
BGT allows users with no prior programming experience to create audio games from the ground up, using a versatile scripting language.
This language controls the Blastbay game engine that you've already experienced in titles such as Q9 and Kringle Crash.
Since May 2014, it is now free.
The BGT engine has been around for a number of years now, and has acquired a large number of users which they are extremely happy about.
However, due to other projects taking up most of their time, they have decided to release it as a freeware product.
This doesn't mean that they will no longer maintain it, simply that new features will be added as time permits or if a third party sponsors them.
If you visit the BGT page found under the software link above, you can now download a fully functional version of the engine with all features unlocked.
You may use the engine to produce as many games as you like, commercial or non-commercial, and you are not required to pay anything or even credit the engine in your documentation,
though the latter would be most appreciated.
BGT uses an extremely versatile scripting language.
Comes bundled with many helper modules to make game creation even easier.
Ships with extensive documentation and example material.
Language syntax conforms mainly to that of C++, making it easy to learn other programming alongside BGT.
The language tutorial is available in audio form, read by a professional voice artist.
A collection of professionally produced music is available to all BGT users.
After downloading and installing the engine, you may also obtain the example games listed below.
These may help you to understand how BGT works, and may give you a bit of enjoyment.

David Greenwood's GMA Games.
Home of Shades of Doom, version 2.0,
Shades of Doom is a revolutionary step forward in games for the VI community.
It was inspired by the well-known graphical shooter game Doom, but it has developed its own very unique and exciting character.
In a three dimensional environment, you must guide your character through nine levels of a top secret research base and shut down the ill-fated experiment.
Shades of Doom features realistic and graphic sounds, and edge-of-the-chair excitement.
Changes have been made so that sounds again represent the direction of the monster or object.
After Windows Vista was introduced, sounds did not well reflect the actual position of the monsters and objects. The sounds seemed to center when the monster or object was close to the player character.
The user data files are now kept in the user's documents folder instead of being kept under the program files folder. This removes quite a few problems when trying to locate where Windows saved these files, especially for those running versions of Windows starting with the Vista version.
This change should also eliminate most, if not all of the problems related to privileges.
You may now use the mouse to play Shades of Doom.
Most of the sounds have been improved.
The EVA has a new voice or you can use your SAPI or screen reader voice instead.
Cheat codes are included at no charge.
There was a major reworking of the engine.
Many small bugs have been fixed.

When a city is captured it will begin producing forces that may be used against the enemy.
You may produce infantry, armoured units, fighters, destroyers, submarines, troop transports, aircraft carriers, and battleships.
You may play on a computer-generated map or a premade map provided with the game,
or by using the included map builder you can use a map you developed yourself.
The maps range from 24 by 24 to 100 by 80.
The smallest land-based map takes about an hour to play,

Home of Tomb Hunter: Mysteries of the Ancients, public Beta 22.
In this fast action, classic side-scroller, you Are Angela Carter, a daring treasure hunter,
willing to risk everything to recover the long lost Orb of Wisdom.
Her mission will not be an easy one. She must face many deadly magical creatures,
such as Amazon warriors, charging centaurs, zombies, and sword wielding skeletons.
She must avoid such deadly traps as pits of boiling lava, towering flames, metal spikes, deep chasms, and poison darts.
Along the way she can collect gold coins, valuable gems, ancient scrolls, enchanted weapons, and healing potions.
She will also discover dropped weapons and ammo left behind by previous adventurers.
If Angela makes it to the Hall of Wisdom she must face her greatest challenge.
Beta Version 22 has a more realistic analog jump system similar to many popular mainstream console games,
random mood changes in music during game play,
the ability to run and jump over large traps,
and an all new level 2.
When Angela pulls the bronze lever, it will unlock the bronze statue somewhere else in the tomb.
The statues are timed, so you have to get to the statue and open it before the time runs out, or the statue lock will reset,
and you will have to travel back to the correct lever, and pull it again.
The timer is completely random so it is a good idea to get back to the statue as quick as possible.
Acapela Heather is now back as the voice of the game.
At this time Beta Version 22 is not available.

Home of SAPI Voices in our games.
7-128 Software games that are BL rated have always self-voiced as well as worked with JAWS.
But our voice was, well... not shall we say very "elequant".
We've changed that.
Now all of our games that are accessible to gamers who are blind can use the Speech Application Programming Interface (SAPI) voice or voices you already have installed in your Windows computer.
* Our new SAPI capability is in all of our Inspector Cyndi in Newport games.
* It's in 3 very different Tyler memory games: Kim's Game, Snowflake, and Orchestra.
* It's in3 Woople word games: Definitions, Synonyms and Antonyms, and Scrambled Sayings.
* And it's in all of our Pizza Games for children.
* And, of course, in our GameBook and PizzaBox.
Furthermore, when you install any GameBook game purchased after 1 August, 2010, your GameBook and all of your previously purchased GameBook games are automatically upgraded to SAPI, totally FREE!
Similarly, when you install any new Pizza game purchased after 1 August, 2010, your PizzaBox and all of your previously purchased Pizza games are automatically upgraded to SAPI, again, totally FREE.

which will implement new features including addition of the two new lifelines introduced later in the show,
update the sound engine, and standardize the question data format to XML which will allow anyone to easily produce question banks for the game!
Secondly, Freedom Jeopardy is on the way.
This version of the popular TV game show will feature actual questions and answers from the real show.
Initially, AI players will be implemented, however the ability to play against others via services such as Twitter is also being considered.

If a game has a new version I try to change the version number in the list but I do not move the company to the top.
If a game is small or free I usually add it to the top of the company's listing but do not move the whole company listing to the top.
I admit, this makes it harder to find all new releases, but AudioGames.net does that on their site.
My list is primarily designed to search for a type of game or the name of a game and to easily go to the web site where you can download it.
