Default McBank: The Puzzle of Money and Freedom (m)




About McBank

McBank is a game that uses humour and gameplay to criticise some of the negative aspects of modern life. At the heart of it is a solid puzzle game that feels like an adventure game. It’s a cross between gaming and social commentary.

It is designed to encourage thought but not to tell the player what to think. The player can make different choices in the game and there are 5 different endings.

It didn’t quite fit to make McBank a paid game so it will be free. Players who appreciate the concept of McBank can support the developers by purchasing the in-game badges in the iOS versions.

The first reviews are coming in. Here's the conclusion from Lory Gil of AppAdvice:

"This is a very interesting and challenging puzzle game. It reminds me of the movie “1984” with a bit of “Brazil” thrown in. Fans of dystopian futures who have a multinational corporation chip on their shoulder will love the theme. Fans of puzzle games will love how challenging these brainteasers are. The game is free to download. The developers have chosen not to include ads or offer in-app purchases. They have, instead made a donation feature available where you can show your support. Download it today. It will make your brain tingle. "

Default Greek review

And if you happen to understand Greek...

I don't but google translate leads me to believe that the reviewer recommends McBank. (I hope that's correct!)

Default McBank on Slide to Play

McBank made it to Slide To Play's 'under the radar' section. That section is for "undiscovered gems that might otherwise pass you by"

I've just done it choosing freedom all the way and the game centre achievement hasn't logged. Happy to play again but thought it was a bit weird that nothing was registering on game centre. Enjoyed it though - just perhaps a bit too short (although ot would need some sort of variety if it were to lengthened) but I'll now try again via the greedy method before trying to free everyone again.

Good to hear you're enjoying McBank. I'll have a look at the gamecenter achievement issue. If it's not triggering properly, or triggering in the wrong place - I'll have it fixed in the first update so that it recognizes anyone that has already completed it.

There are actually five different endings...!

Nice job making the game of the week finals! I heard about this game on some other site; I forget which. I'm surprised it didn't garner much attention here.
