What you need to know

  • These games use Windows 10's eye-tracking APIs.

Microsoft has released four games that can be played with your eyes using eye-tracking technology. Tile Slide, Match Two, Double Up, and Maze are all reimagined versions of popular games that utilize Windows 10's eye-tracking APIs.

"Tile Slide" is a puzzle game that challenges you to complete puzzles in the fewest possible moves. "Match Two" is a memory game. "Double Up" is a math strategy game and "Maze" has you help a lost puppy.

The release of these games aims to increase accessibility and is part of a continued effort by Microsoft to make gaming and computing available to all users.

Each of these titles is free and works with Windows 10 eye-tracking. To use eye-tracking, you'll need hardware such as the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C. If you'd like, you can also play all of these games with either touch or a mouse.
