Abstract: The goal of the present study is to contribute to the research on the use of eye tracking in hands-free gaming. We report the results of an experimental study by using a platform game designed by the authors. The game allowed gaze-voice command control, as well touchscreen control of the interface by the player. We employed a set of performance measures and we measured player engagement as an indicator of user experience. The findings revealed that the players did not improve in game performance when they used the gaze-voice control compared to the touchscreen control. On the other hand, they exhibited stronger engagement, which indicates the potential of gaze-voice combination as an acceptable interaction method compared to touchscreen in mobile games.
