2. ?GoldGun (iOS, Free)

GoldGun is an audio game – no visual content – where you play the
adventures of Soren, a police officer investigating cybercriminal activity
in the deep web.

The game is presented in a cinematic like experience and it is delivered
through seven episodes, in a format similar to TV series. Each episode is
launched every two or three months. The first episode (launch date 31st
January 2019) is completely free, so everybody can play and enjoy it. The
sounds in the game are implemented using 3D-audio in order to provide an
immersive experience and playing with headphones is highly recommended. The
game mechanics include the use of the gyroscope (tilt the phone to move) and
tactile interface (swipe and tap actions to interact with objects).

The story is presented like a single-player narrative, with extensive voice
acting and no use of voice-over software. Each episode includes a series of
minigames, which grow in length and complexity as the story deepens and
progresses in the future episodes.

Current Version: 1.0 (February 1, 2019)

development of the game due to some negative responses from players. More on

3. LetSeeApp (iOS, Free With In-App Purchases)

LetSee is an app for vision.

As of now, it has three functions, a money reader, a card recognizer, and
light intensity. Point your camera at the target and wait until you hear the
recognition result. The banknote recognizer feature works with US Dollars,
Euros, Chinese Yuan, Hungarian Forints and South Korean Won and we are
adding new currencies continuously. You might need some practice first. We
advise you to place the camera of your smartphone onto the object you want
to recognize and slowly start pulling it upwards. Once you reach a proper
distance the recognition result will be announced. It can also be helpful to
slightly and slowly tilt, pan, and turn your device.
