OverviewOverview

Blind Spot is a hidden target game. 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.

You find the invisible targets through the hot-or-cold vibration feedback system. As you place a finger on the screen you are "guided" to the target by vibration that increases in frequency as the finger gets closer. Harder levels feature more targets, some of which move. The only way to progress is to be touching all targets simultaneously.

It's a game that is unusual because it can be played without sight or hearing. It was made from a desire to be something to do on a phone that, through focusing attention, might ease anxiety attacks. The experience is one that is both engaging and relaxing.

"There is no winning or losing, only progress and movement."

AccessibilityAccessibility

Blind Spot requires only fine motor control and the ability to feel the vibrations of a mobile device to play.

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.
