    Gamers and frustrated travellers alike can now access a new mobile game from a luggage shipping provider, which takes a swipe at greedy low-cost airlines and their confusing luggage policies, high excess baggage fees and hand luggage. Available in iTunes and Android app stores, as well as on Facebook, Mickey O'Greedy's Luggage Swindle is a tongue-in-cheek game developed by SendMyBag. It provides a fun way for travellers to air their frustrations at these airlines' antics.

    With the playability and additive lure of Pac-man, Mickey O'Greedy's Luggage Swindle allows players to play as Mickey, using a greedy grab hand to catch travellers with luggage, each time bagging 'cash' in the game. High scores can lead to discount vouchers on baggage shipping with SendMyBag and a passport-style leader board means fans can interact with each other and play competitively.

    SendMyBag founder Adam Ewart said: "We wanted to develop a fun game that could be played by travellers of all ages, whilst they're sat in the airport or on their travels. It can also be played simply by those who want to know what it's like to be the one handing out the charges! The leader board offers the competition element, meaning it can be shared among friends and family. We're really pleased at how it's developed and we hope that Mickey O'Greedy is a character that the whole travelling nation will love.
