App description: Money. Or freedom. What is more important to you?

The people, rich and poor alike, all bow down to the mighty McBank. They buy from McBank and they work for McBank. They live for McBank.

They are controlled by McBank.

But perhaps there is another option? A different way of doing things. A new balance to be struck.

You decide.
_________

-Supports retina screen devices
-5 different game endings.
-Choose to control or free the people after each puzzle.
-Your actions in the game affect the ending.

Reviews and comments:

"Indie title McBank challenges the social order" - Aaron Lee, Develop Online

"Amazing once figuring out the rules - This is seriously one of the best puzzle games I've played in a while. The screens are incredibly well done and the theme is consistent with issues people are facing today in the real world. Good job to the dev team on this one." Platinum Matt, (Player review)

This is a very interesting and challenging puzzle game. ..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 Lory Gil, AppAdvice

Every now and again, something will come along and take an item, concept, etc, that we are familiar with and do something really interesting with itSuch is the case with McBank McBank is a game that will keep you coming back... App of the Week - Michelle Starr

"Very cool.... - The art style reminds me of "The Wall" and has that bleak dystopian vibe to it. It has a simple puzzle mechanic that will really twist your brain. Definitely one of the most unique games out there, it will surprise you in it's depth and satire. Check it out and give the devs some major props for their inventiveness and willingness to try something a little more cerebral." Mr Mental (Player review)

"This game is the first of its kind that I know of and a real cerebral twister. Makes you think about something besides shooting or running or matching stuff....exercise for your morals and your intellect . Hope the devs keeps producing games like this. A welcome relief to all the endless repetitive and boring games that are so popular. This game is more my style. Thanks to the devs. Keep it up please!!!!!" Lily Lil (Player review)

"An app for Orwell - A modern spin on the 1984 Big Brother, McBank is a dark parody of the controls present in today's society. Great art work and musical atmosphere. Loved the "chose you own adventure" aspect of the narrative. And a really good puzzle idea. Awesome game (^-^)b " Bart Lawless (Player/tester review)

"Challenging puzzle game with a bleary atmosphere and a unique message. Seriously check it out, it's free and you won't regret it." Floydian Spiral (Player review)

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. Its a cross between gaming and social commentary.

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 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 didnt 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.

Tested this and played through the game (one ending) and it is a very fun puzzler that is incredibly unique. If you like puzzle games, this is certainly worth a download.

Now that it is out, I am going to play through for a different ending.

First review

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. "

It's free but you can make a contribution if you like it. There's no IAPs as such that I can see and I'm pretty far in. It gets pretty hard the further you go. Not too sure how Game Centre works, but maybes the dev can help out there. The sound reminds of aphex twin selected ambient works volume 2.
