This video shows a range of mostly free PC games that can be played with one or
two buttons or switches. We will be using an Xbox Adaptive Controller and JoytoKey
to play these games.
This is a Tar Heel gameplay activity where you can change any YouTube video
into a switch activity.
This is Cognable’s Light Box and with JoytoKey you can convert one of their
switches to the mouse movement and one to left-click
to create all sorts of patterns. It can also be used in a variety of ways
including with a single switch.
I select “Mouse Click Switch”
with “Toggle On” “Off.” One button is enough to create a big effect. Once we’re on one
sphere there are a variety of activities which I can select with a click and I
could start them with a press and stop them.
This activity is called “Wave to the People.”
With one switch set up as the left click or the spacebar, all you need to do is
press your button and wave at the people as you go by in a train and hope they’ll
smile at you or wave back.
This is “Just Fishing by Ruthie Edwards and with one of your buttons set up with
spacebar you can go fishing.
This is “4ways 4ward,” a beautifully animated adventure game, this has an
unusual mechanism that you hold a switch to move a character forward through the
world and then let go if you want to interact with an object nearby and find
out the story behind it and it’s different for each character.
This is “Catchy Orbit” which is a single switch game and the
aim of the game is to turn the red balls blue.
If you reach the target set at the top of the screen, you’ll progress to the
This is Flabby Physics” a one switch puzzle game.
This is “Canabalt” and it can be used with any Xbox standard controller with just
the A and B buttons. No extra software is needed.
This is “Look’n Cook” which is a mostly one switch game that needs some mouse
control to navigate menus.
The aim of the game is to cook as close to your customers wish as possible. All
you do is press once to flip and again for the other side
and he will tell you how well you’ve done.
This is “Soccer Physics” which is a 1 or 2 player game. With one switch set up as W
for the left team and the other set for the up arrow, you can play a game of
football…or try your best.
If you’d like any extra help finding these games or any help in setting up
your Xbox Adaptive Controller to act as a mouse or keyboard,
please just get in touch.
