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.

Mouse control.
To exit full screen mode press escape on your keyboard.
To exit the game first exit full screen mode and then close the game window.

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).

“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 it…Such is the case with McBank…McBank is a game that will keep you coming back, not just for the gameplay, but to see where its strangeness will lead.” App of the Week - Michelle Starr CNET Australia

“Indie title McBank challenges the social order” – Aaron Lee, Develop Magazine

“Buy this game if you think your iOS library could use more references to Orwell’s 1984.” – Andrew Podolsky, Slide to Play.

“Strange art, unsettling music, challenging puzzles, unique social commentary. McBank the game.” – Occupy London

“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. Specifically, how wealth and power is massively uneven in distribution. i.e a tiny amount of people control the majority of the money. Yet the majority of the people continue to support those with the power.

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 took me a while to figure out what I was supposed to do, and even longer to figure out how to exit, which was my closing out the complete application. Basically you find an arrow that takes you to a bejeweled type of game, collect money, repeat. I only got several stages through when it became to repetitive and aI quit.
