Greedy Bankers vs The World

Eurogamer Indie Games Arcade finalist Greedy Bankers vs The World (iPad) has just received its first update, which aims to make the game more accessible to colour-blind players.

The update adds symbols that can be optionally added to the coloured gems in the game to make them visually distinguishable without the need for colour vision.

"Because the gameplay of Greedy Bankers is largely based on colour, there were some obvious difficulties for colour-blind players. I thought it was unfair that people should be unable to enjoy the game properly, especially over an issue that was so easy to fix," said the developer Alistair Aitcheson.

The developer also cited the charity Special Effect as an inspiration for the change, having met them at the Eurogamer Expo and approached them for advice.

"I'm still looking for feedback on the updates, so that I can improve these accessibility elements. Hopefully with each update I'll be able to improve them based on players' experiences."

The new update also includes a tutorial video to explain the basics of gameplay and multiplayer rules.

"This was really fun to do, and being able to show the gameplay in action makes it so much more engaging and inspires creative play - especially when you see two real players wrestling to control the play-field!"

Greedy Bankers vs The World is available for iPad now from the App Store.
