Hi Thomas,
The games from APH are designed to be purchased by sighted teachers for blind and visually impaired children.
They all have large print graphics.
Larry Skutchan is the head of development and being totally blind he is aware of the range of games for the blind as he purchased all of PCS earlier DOS games. Unfortunately he has to have the game concepts accepted by a board of advisers who probably reduced the challenge in the game concepts to make them easier to play for young children.


I had fun playing Toodle Tiles, Based on the ancient game of Mahjong
And Talking Word Puzzles is very challenging.
It is an accessible crossword puzzle game.
The others, Armadillo Army, Termite torpedo, and Hurry Scurry
I wouldn't buy as they are too easy.

Hi Ryan,

In my personal opinion the games aren't worth the price. It has always
seamed to me the developer who created the APH games wasn't aware
there are plenty of competing accessible games out there on the
market. Besides the high price they are not that great to begin with.
To me Shades of Doom or something else is far better games and are
worth the price to license.

Hey everyone,

I just ran across these games from American Printing House for the Blind,
but they seem a little highly priced to me. Does anyone have these games,
and are they worth it? The games are:
Armidillo Army, Termite Torpedo, and Tudle Tiles or something like that..
Sorry, I know I destroyed the spelling on those, lol.
If anyone has any information, please let me know.
Take care,
Ryan
