Hi, I wanted to let everyone know about our first game for Android, “RapiTap! Accessible game” The idea is to tap targets fast & avoid decoys. It’s adrenaline pumping, challenging and accessible! The perfect short, fast-paced, heart racing game! Tap the yellow circles as fast as you can, but avoid the red crosses. Sound easy? The concept might be, but see if you think so by the time you get to “Impossible!” mode. Speed of the game is based on your reaction time, so you really are playing against yourself. RapiTap is one of the first accessible, real time reaction based games available for Android and is a quick adrenaline rush for anyone, fully sighted or not. Available now, ad-free and no permissions needed on Google Play. Particularly for Talkback users, I’ve included here an audio walkthrough of the game.
