Everyone loves to play mobile games. Unfortunately, some may get restricted due to their physical disabilities such as blindness and deafness. What’s worse is that most of the games we see in the Play Store or App Stores are not created with their special needs in mind.
So we, at Insiderbits, have compiled a list of 5 inclusive games that truly let everyone play them. This is great for fostering empathy and bringing people together.
Top 5 Inclusive Games
1. Sky: Children of the Light
Sky is a multiplayer visual game that offers you a platform to meet and play with new people. It heavily relies on graphical storytelling with captions attached to any dialogue. Thus it is suitable even for deaf people looking for an adventure every day.
Here you can challenge other players for a race, get relaxed around a fire, and play musical instruments. But you always need to be aware of the dangers that lurk around. As you keep playing, you will unlock new experiences and be rewarded with cosmetics to customize your character.
2. Bejeweled Blitz
Bejeweled Blitz is a match-3 game. Remember Candy Crush? Yes, just like that, here also you have to bring 3 or more same items together to eliminate them and score the highest. Detonate as many gems as you can within 60 seconds.
However, you won’t be playing here alone. It brings people from all over the world to create a leaderboard of ranked players based on their scores. Challenge others and compete in the Blitz Champions Contest to rank higher. This game requires no hearing capabilities. Thus, even the deaf can play it well enough.
