Bomber Crew is a cartoon-styled World War 2 strategic bombing simulator. While it avoids the grim reality of these missions, it connects players to the extreme difficulty and danger of making it out and back again.

External examiner, Tyler Brinkman, first checked Bomber Crew accessibility 10 months ago. It was re-examined by Tyler Brinkman and updated 10 months ago.

NotesAccessibility Notes

In addition to the getting started tutorial, you can access further information with pictures and text to explain the variety of mechanics within the game should the player need a refresher. Training is available to practice specific crew member skills. Controls are listed in the options menu.

The game prompts the player with different objectives during a mission using coded markings (wrench and red triangle to signify repairs, orange icons with ammo or a map icon to signify refilling ammo and flight course changes) and dialogue bubbles from the crew on the side of the screen.

There is a Slow Time feature that grants you limited additional time to complete multiple actions. The game resumes to normal speed once the Slow Time is used and the meter needs to refill before you can use it again.

There is a time limit to complete missions in the amount of fuel the plane has. The player can run out of fuel and fail the mission. The majority of missions provide ample time for this not to be a concern.

Progress is saved after the completion of a mission, but you can't save mid-mission which could be around 30 minutes.

There is some audio cueing however limited in its usefulness. It does help signify when navigation markers are successfully highlighted and selected.

We've documented 4 accessibility features for Getting Started in Bomber Crew which deal with what support is offered to get started with the game. This includes customising the experience when you first open the game via any onboarding processes it provides as well as tutorials and other assistance when you first start playing.

Assistance Getting Starting

These features aid your play of the game in terms of cognitive load on learning controls, dealing with pressure and coping with the environment and challenges.

Tutorials: There are helpful tutorials and instructions on how to play. Information is provided in a timely manner, with appropriate level of detail.

Practice Area: You can practice freely without opponents or time pressures. This can be a specific practice option, or the ability to play levels with the easiest opponents to improve understanding and skill.

We've documented 3 accessibility features for Reading in Bomber Crew which deal with how much reading or listening comprehension is required, how well the game provides visual and audible access to the text and whether subtitles and captions are a good fit for purpose.

Reading Level

How much reading is required to play the game's main path or story and how complex the language is. The presence of voiced characters doesn't reduce this requirement, as it's recorded as a separate datapoint.

Simple Minimal Reading: Minimal reading is required. The quantity and complexity of reading are at a level that a primary/elementary student (9-year-old) could understand.

Subtitles

All Speech Subtitled (Or No Speech In Game): All spoken content has subtitles, or there is no speech in the game. This means there is no requirement to hear spoken dialogue or narrative to play the game.

Captions

Speaker Indicator: Textual captions indicate who is speaking (or there is only ever one person speaking). This can also be indicated visually in the game with character icons or placing text in speech bubbles next to the person speaking.
