Qomp is a bat and ball game with a difference. You control the ball rather than the bat. Trapped in between paddles for decades, you finally escape and start an adventure through a maze of dungeons.

NotesAccessibility Notes

One button control, when playing every controller button does the same thing. Using keyboard you only need to use the spacebar. At one point you need to press three times in a second.

As you play you pick a path that is harder, shorter, longer. If a path is too hard you can rewind and select a different one. You can also select invincibility to remove reaction pressure.

The only text is in the menus.

Getting StartedGetting Started

We've documented 5 accessibility features for Getting Started in Qomp which deal with what support is offered to get started with the game. This includes customising the experience when you first open the game via any onboarding processes it provides as well as tutorials and other assistance when you first start playing.

Assistance Getting Starting

These features aid your play of the game in terms of cognitive load on learning controls, dealing with pressure and coping with the environment and challenges.

Tutorials: There are helpful tutorials and instructions on how to play. Information is provided in a timely manner, with appropriate level of detail.

Practice Area: You can practice freely without opponents or time pressures. This can be a specific practice option, or the ability to play levels with the easiest opponents to improve understanding and skill.

Adjust Speed: Adjust the overall speed of the game, or rewind play for a second attempt, to ease reaction times. By slowing the game, you have more time to interpret what is happening and then execute your actions. It also reduces the pressure on getting things right quickly or the first time you attempt them.

Assistance For Progressing

These features aid your progress through the game offering different ways of maintaining your progression.

Guaranteed Progress With God Mode: There is no fail state for any game level, where you lose progress or have to start again. Or there are options to make failing impossible: infinite health or lives, unlimited time. Sometimes called God Mode or Unfailable.

Save Progress Anytime: The game automatically saves progress or you can save any time. This doesn’t mean you never lose progress, but it does mean you can stop whenever you want (without having to get to a save point) without losing progress.
