Although these two games were apparently released in July, I just recently discovered them.
In Blind Gamers Alchemy you are a trainee Alchemist learning the art of transmuting Lead into Gold and in the process advancing through the Alchemical ranks to reach your ultimate goal of becoming the Grand Alchemical Emperor.
On each level you must transmute each of the 72 cells on the board from Lead to Gold. You do this by placing mystic Runes on the board according to certain rules. Each mystic rune successfully placed on a Lead cell, is immediately transmuted to Gold. Each Rune must be played next to another Rune already on the board. To successfully play a Rune, all edges of the Rune which abut Runes already on the board must match in color or type or both. You score points for each play based on the number of matched edges and whether you played the Rune on a Lead cell or a cell already transmuted to Gold.
]Blind Gamers Hangman is a blind accessible computerized version of the old pencil and paper game called Hangman. One player thinks of a word but does not say what it is. Instead, he writes the word as dashes on a piece of paper. One dash for each letter of the word. The other player then tries to guess the mystery word a letter at a time. If the guessed letter appears in the word, all occurrences of that letter are revealed by writing them over the appropriate dashes. If the guessed letter does not appear in the word, this is a bad guess. You are penalized for a bad guess by having one more element of the hanged man drawn on the gallows. Once all nine elements have been drawn and the hanged man is complete, you lose the game. If you guess the mystery word before the hanged man is complete, you are credited with a win.
In this version, the computer is the player who thinks of the mystery word. You are the player who must guess the word. There are also two levels of difficulty, Easy and Hard.
I have tried both games. BG Alchemy didn't appeal to me all that much though I'd bet that some of you will enjoy its challenge, but BG Hangman has joined BG Solitair as one of my more frequently played audio games.
