Ascension: Accessibility Winner

Ascension is a deck-building game. It involves starting with a few cards, buying cards or defeating monsters, and slowly building your deck. Over time you “banish” bad cards to raise the average value of cards in your deck. You play against an opponent, and attempt to collect more “honor” than them.

It is a well-designed game, but more interestingly, it is an extremely well-designed app.

Ascension carries the torch of accessibility, not only for the new user of the application but also for people with various needs.
