Wargroove 2 is a strategy game where you command squads of troops in tactical grid-based battles. Rather than directly controlling your troops, play focuses on assessing your enemy and terrain to send in forces that fight independently. It stands out for the mix of tactical battle-planning with a quirky fantasy world and stories.

Our accessibility examiner, Ben Kendall, first checked Wargroove 2 accessibility 7 weeks ago.

NotesAccessibility Notes

As movement around the map is turn-based and you don't directly participate in combat, there is no need for quick reactions, nor is there any need for paid pressing, simultaneous inputs or button holds. You can have the game automatically end your turn when there aren't any more movements you can make.

You can choose between different difficulty settings, which affect things like the amount of damage received.

Text is high in contrast, although smaller than 1/20th of screen height. Some dialogue is voiced, while all of it is captioned, with speech bubbles appearing by characters, with the speaker's name included in the speech bubble.

You can generally see the whole map of the area you're in during a level, so navigation is not an issue. Objectives are made clear throughout.

There is a colourblind mode which allows you to change the colours of different troops, with different colours.

ReadingReading

We've documented 5 accessibility features for Reading in Wargroove 2 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.

Moderate Reading: Moderate reading required. The quantity and complexity of reading are at a level that a high school student (14-year-old) would appreciate.

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.

Voice Acted

Some Dialogue is Voice Acted: Some of the game dialogue and narrative is voice acted. This reduces the pressure on reading all the dialogue text, although not everything is provided audibly.

Clarity

Large Clear Navigation: The in-game navigation and maps are clear to read. They offer large text and offer markers that are large and of high contrast. Where text or information is small, there are settings to zoom-in and increase visibility.

Clear Mission Objectives: The game provides clear, structured missions with directional guidance and advice on which can be attempted next. This also indicates (ideally on maps where they are provided) which missions can't be attempted because you do not have the appropriate items yet.

Head-Up Display

Adjust Head-Up Display: Resize and adjust the content of the head-up display. This enables it to be made more visible. It can also enable the removal of too much information that can be distracting or confusing.

Game Map: View a map of the game world during play, with the landscape, points of interest and missions highlighted throughout the entire game. This enables the orientation of the player and the world, confirming a direction of movement and the location of destinations or points of exploration.

Menu Navigation

VisualVisual

Contrast

Medium Contrast: Game uses generally well contrasting and bright visuals, or has a slider to make this the case.

Visual Distractions

No Busy Backgrounds: No distracting backgrounds or you can make them static or blank. This includes the absence of other movement elements in the background that might distract or confuse the action. Where foreground contrast is high, this includes games with some movement in the background that doesn't make it overly difficult to distinguish what is happening.

Audio Cues for Visual Events

Audio Cues for Visual Events: Audio is provided to indicate visual events. Game events or progress highlighted by visual icons, effects or animations are also accompanied by audio to signify that progress. This is useful for blind players.
