Another podcast review of Blindfold Racer
I was recently contacted by Out Of Step. Their organization help people with disabilities create better economic success. It is a free and innovative online marketplace and platform where people with disabilities can make money and promote a business by selling goods and services. And through Out of Step, consumers can now find all sorts of great things, from books to industrial tools and dating services to computer help… all by people who happen to have a disability.
Alvaro Alvarito does a podcast called “Syncopating: Apps for People With Disabilities”, and it is hosted at the TOOST Radio section of Out Of Step’s website. Alvaro did a podcast about Blindfold Racer, and he was nice enough to say “This is one of the most played games for people with disabilities in general all across this world.” I know the game is popular – it has entertained thousands of people – but I’m not sure it’s that popular. But with time, it will be.
I think Alvaro only played a few levels so far, since he said the “it’s very, very easy to use, very easy to play”. The game is easy to play and easy to use, but as you start playing the higher levels, it gets trickier and trickier. I was at a meeting a few weeks ago, and received a nice compliment about the game. The manager told me it was so addictive that they had to remove Blindfold Racer from the teacher’s iPads. The teachers were spending all their time playing the game, instead of doing their normal jobs.
