Play OverviewPlay Overview

Ear Hockey (2018) is a bat and ball competitive game played by listening to the in-game audio alone; no screen is required. It uses spatial audio cues to signal to the player where they are in the play space and where the main game object, the ball, is travelling.

You control a paddle from the first-person perspective and can hear the ball travelling around the court. The goal is to hit the ball so the other player can't return the ball. The first player to score seven points wins the match.

It's an accessible game for players with low vision, but also an interesting game to play and explore your sense of hearing.

Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Ear Hockey 4 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 4 months ago.
