Blind Bargains

RS Games shuts the box on only computer playing, goes Apples to Apples with iOS


Earlier today, RS Games announced on Twitter that there is now an iOS version of its service available. The app, was developed with Kid Friendly Software features many of the gestures and voice settings found in the conventional Blindfold series of games.
While the app is free, not all games are free to play. The games that are free include Slots, Blackjack, Pig, and Driedel. All other games come with a free 7 day trial which starts the first time you launch them, whether you play them right away or not. Once your trial expires on a specific game, you can then continue to use it via an in-app purchase. All other games that are currently on the RS Games Server are available for purchase. The prices on games ranged from $2.99 for a few of the games, up to $5.99 for monopoly. There are also bundles available which allows you to save a few dollars. You can pay for unlimited access to all games for $37.99. After downloading the app, you will find more details under the upgrades button.

This news will have players excitedly downloading the games, the developers encourage players to check out the User Guide under the help button before trying to play. From the limited testing I've done before writing this article, the gestures appear to work well, and so do the keyboard commands if quicknav is disabled. Unfortunately, even though there is a setting that is designed for braille display users, none of the spoken feedback comes up on the braille display during game play. This was tested under 2 different iDevices with 2 different braille displays. However, for a 1.0 release, it seems quite solid based on initial testing.

Hi, After a few false starts, I got the game working. I started with Slot machine since the article said it was free. However, it has the 7-day free trial, then you have to buy coins. I've not had time to go beyond that. The issue I had at first was there was no option to create an account. After writing Kid Friendly Software, it sounded like I must have a bad install, so I deleted the game and reinstalled it, and on the first try, the create an account option was there. Looks like it could be fun.
