Announcing Termite Torpedo™ an innovative new PC game designed to help students with low vision practice their vision skills.

News Release: Louisville, Kentucky, March 17, 2003

If the seemingly endless hordes of bright orange and yellow termites are not stopped, the entire town of Woodville will be eaten. The challenge for the player is to save the city by clearing out the termites before that happens.

Bright, high-contrast colors, excellent audio, and an engaging theme are the features that will make it hard for students to stop playing this new arcade-style game from the American Printing House for the Blind (APH)- and, that’s just fine! Because, the longer students play, the more practice they get in using visual skills such as locating, fixating, tracking, aligning, and following.

An enhanced version of Termite Torpedo is now available from APH. It has all the features of the original version, but also makes it possible for a totally blind player and a low vision player to play the game, together, at the same time.

Details are outlined in the enclosed product brochure.

A free demonstration of Termite Torpedo is available on the APH web site, Select Termite Torpedo from the Software and technology products menu at
