Spitkiss is a game where you control a ball of saliva around the dangerous interior of different organs. The spittle is the carrier of a message of love and hope between people, but it can only get there if you precisely aim and navigate the different stages.

NotesAccessibility Notes

Text is good contrast but font is hard to read. You can have a timer on levels but this is optional and if you fail you can just try again. Also, the game slows down as you hold your finger down to aim. The game gives you audio feedback when you are on target.

DifficultyDifficulty

Spitkiss has 4 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.

Cognitive Pressure

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

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.
