However you have to identify the location of the targets without any audio or visual clues. As you run your two fingers over the screen you are provided vibration feedback that increases as you home in on the two targets and finally win the level.
Difficulty is determined exclusively by the level you’re on. It starts easy and gets harder. As difficulty increases the number of targets to find and how much they move increases. You can choose to start on the easiest level and then progress, or you can start at harder level from the beginning.
At the beginning of each level it announces the start with vibration and indicates the number of targets to find with a series of vibration pulse. If you take your fingers off the screen the game provides vibration pulses of the number of targets.
Blind Spot has 7 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.
Select Difficulty: Select the level of difficulty from a range of presets. This not only offers a way to adjust the challenge of a game but enables you to do so without dealing with individual criteria.
Adjust After Setting
Adjustable Between Levels: You can adjust the difficulty between levels/rounds. Although you have to restart your checkpoint or level, this enables you to adjust the difficulty after selecting it at the beginning of the game.
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.
Low Pressure: Game tasks aren't time-limited or there's a low-pressure mode. This avoids the pressure of being put on the clock for overarching missions, or failing tasks because you didn't reach a destination in time.
Save Anytime: The game automatically saves progress or you can save any time, and not lose progress. This avoids being forced back to the start of a level, or checkpoint when you fail a particular challenge.
Assistance When Stuck: The game notices if you get stuck and provides assistance. This can offer hints or tutorials popping up during play. It can suggest which difficulty settings to adjust or offer to skip past problematic levels.
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.
