[BlindWar]

It is a torpedo battle game.
You are the captain of a submarine and sink an enemy ship with torpedoes.
Torpedoes are old type that were at World War II.There is no homing torpedo.It also has no ability to track enemy ships.At a speed slightly faster than the maximum battle speed of the enemy ship, it just advances in the direction specified at the time of launch.
Therefore, the torpedo must be fired at the point where the enemy ship will be located at the time the torpedo will arrive.Even though there are enemy ships in the north-northeast, you need to launch torpedoes in the north-northwest direction.(The launching angle can be adjusted by yourself, but basically it is calculated on the game side.)
I think one of the thrills of the torpedo battle game is that while the torpedo goes toward the target point, the enemy ship gradually approaches in that direction, and you are exciteing wheter it will hit the ship or not.
I made this game thinking that I could express it with sounds.
Of course, you can open the game view (nautical chart) and play while following the movements of enemy ships and torpedoes with your eyes.However, in that case, the score obtained will be low.
The image above shows the game view hidden.
In this state, shoot a torpedo based on the enemy ship information transmitted by sound and sink the enemy ship.

Let me give you a few examples of playing with sounds.
A large tanker is sunk with a torpedoe.

Another example. This is in battle with a destroyer.

The help file that is started by pressing the F1 key explains in detail what kind of sound will be hear in some situation. If you are visually impaired, please read it first and then try to play the game.
Whether or not you can feel the above-mentioned feeling of excitement with sound.
I hope you enjoy this game.

This game uses the SAPI speech synthesis engine.Recent Windows has some engines by default, so I think there should be no problem. If you have removed the SAPI engine for some reason, such as batting with a screen reader, please install a SAPI engine.Either SAPI4 or SAPI5 is fine.


The latest version is 1.0.0.(Released in June 2022)
You can play this game on Windows 7 or later.
There are 32-bit version and 64-bit version.(The 32-bit version works on 64-bit Windows, but considering memory efficiency, those using 64-bit Windows should download the 64-bit version.)
