Adore is an action-adventure game where you play Lukha, who can summon and control creatures to fight by his side to offer simple yet satisfying combat. Each round you set out from the hub world, clearing out a region with the creatures you've chosen to take with you. It's a clever way to offer dungeon combat where the creatures you summon do the fighting for you, to ensure it's approachable to a wide range of players.

Our accessibility examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Adore accessibility 10 months ago.

NotesAccessibility Notes

You need to hold a button to summon and aim a creature with the stick, then release it to attack.

The game provides a directional queue when you are near an objective in the form of a green arrow. There is a list of objectives and a map you can pull up to see where they are - although this is quite small and can't be scaled.

When an area is clear of enemies there's a large text announcement. You can teleport between cleared areas by selecting them on the map.

You can pull up a list of your creatures with full explanations of their abilities and potential upgrades.
