The Switch console comes with one pair of Joy Cons. These are attached to the Switch in portable mode, and detached when playing on a TV. Some games support multiplayer modes with each player only needing one Joy-Con half to play. This offers a much more affordable way to accommodate more players.
The games here can be played with a single button. Although ranging in difficulty they are a good place to start for those needing simpler controls.
It should be noted that many of these games need to be started with more than one button. Some are played by tapping at a fixed point on a touchscreen. We haven't included games that require a motioned-touch.
For those needing alternative access there are many possibilities with an accessibility switch. These "switches" come in many shapes and sizes including jumbo buttons, super-sensitive finger switches and sound sensors. In some cases, the spacebar or a Bluetooth keyboard can work just fine. If the player can activate the control and if it can be connected to the games machine, then one-button play becomes a possibility.
