The goal ultimately is to create a team that not only works well together but can counter your opponent's team.
Auto Chess has 6 accessibility features for Difficulty which deal with how you can adjust the challenge of play, and assistance the game offers when you fail or get stuck.
Competitive Difficulty: Difficulty not adjustable, because you compete against other players.
Reaction-Time Not Critical: Individual game actions don’t need quick reactions, or there are settings to lower the requirement for quick reactions. This means you don't need to quickly press a button in response to an on-screen prompt, target a fast-moving target or skillfully complete a scenario against the clock.
Assistance With Controls: The game can automatically assist with aiming, steering, reloading, jumping, running etc. This reduces the challenge of certain aspects of play to remove barriers and make control of characters more accessible.
Rubber Banding: Trailing players are dynamically given an advantage, or the game gets easier if you die frequently. This is usually in multiplayer games, but can also include single-player games that adjust difficulty dynamically.
Tutorials: There are helpful tutorials, instructions and tips. Information is provided in a timely manner, with appropriate levels of detail. Ideally, this includes ongoing tips that relate to contexts in the game where the player is failing.
No Unlocking Required: Access any mode, location, character, weapon or vehicle from the start.
Auto Chess has 1 accessibility feature for Reading which deals with how much reading or listening comprehension is required, how well the game provides visual and audible access to the text and whether subtitles and captions are a good fit for purpose.
Moderate Reading: Moderate reading required. The quantity and complexity of reading are at a level that a high school student would appreciate.
