Tiny Thor is a retro running and jumping game where you play a young Thor on an adventure. The stages and platforms are designed around your versatile hammer, which you can throw, bounce off walls, and even use as a mobile jump pad. It's this expansion of the platforming formula, combined with non-linear, secret-filled stages, that makes it stand out.

Our accessibility examiner, Ben Kendall, first checked Tiny Thor accessibility 7 months ago.

NotesAccessibility Notes

There is a selection of Assist Mode options you can enable if the game gets too difficult for you:
  • Higher jump
  • Automatically pull hearts towards you
  • Make wall jumps easier
  • Allow wall jumps to be performed on icy walls
  • Invincible for longer after taking damage
  • Permanent invincibility
These can all be toggled individually at any time.

Regardless of these features, some jumps still require significant precision and fast reactions are also needed. If you get hit, a heart pops out of your body and you have a better of seconds to get it back or else you lose health.

Text, including subtitles, is high in contrast but less than a 20th of overall screen height.

Some enemies can be low in contrast to the background, making it difficult to spot them.

ReadingReading

We've documented 4 accessibility features for Reading in Tiny Thor 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.

Text Visibility

High Contrast Text: Text colour contrasts to the background or can be adjusted to be. The text in menus, instructions and other information is presented in high contrast with a solid background.

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.
