If you like computer games that challenge your mind, then we know you'll enjoy playing The GameBook, Aurora Edition. Eight engaging, blind-accessible games are designed for simple video gaming without the hassle of intricate and impossible instructions. The clever design aims at generating fun, not frustration. Solve two mysteries with the help of Inspector Cyndi: a murder and the identity of a mysterious sailor in 1890's Newport, Rhode Island. Or test your memory and pattern matching skills with Orchestra and Snowflake. How about a vocabulary challenge with four fun word games? Time dependent games include a Game Throttle that slows the clock, and if a game is idle for a period of time it automatically suggests the next step. All games include F1 and F2 HELP specifically for blind gamers and feature an EASY BUTTON so you can start slowly and increase the challenge when you're ready. These puzzling games will have you on the edge of your seat as they challenge your mind. And the challenge is perfectly suited to fit your expertise. The GameBook, Aurora Edition is gaming at its best!
