I would say this app is mostly accessible, The parts that aren’t don’t impact gameplay at all. There is a map, which you don’t have to use, which isn’t accessible, but the app defaults to list view instead of map view anyway. The button in the top left will open the main menu. When you’re buying properties, or looking at your portfolio, there are two buttons that voice-over doesn’t read, these are not actually buttons they’re just status tabs, so if you try and click them and nothing happens, that’s how it’s meant to be. Apart from that everything is accessible in my opinion.
Developers are willing and interested to hear about what accessibility improvements they can make, if you want, you can contact them from within the app.

I'm playing this game for a while now and while it is quite fun to see what's around and buy things, it sooner or later forces you to buy coins to continue, things like upgrades, buying some property and even bidding on property takes up coins which is unaceptable in my oppinion, it doesn't make bidding available for everyone, it makes it possible for those who have the bigger money stash, which is normal, but also who invests real world currency into coins which you need. It also takes a long while till you have good income, at the start it is particularly slow.
How can we buy shares?
Every time you level up you get coins, and you can watch adverts
Yes, that might be true, but in the later game, leveling up is a very tedious process and with property which is worth a lot of cash you do need a lot of coins.
For example, I am at level 28, need around 1000000000 euros to advance. I bought a share of a property, and even for an upgrade which brings 5 percent more net income I need to pay around 1000 coins.
Actually I have been playing this game for months and completely disagree. You do need to purchase coins to succeed in this game. The property maximum you can own is by default 10. To increase this you need to use coins to buy the upgrade. The upgrade starts out at around 150 coins and goes up quite rapidly from there. There is no way you can truly succeed in this game if you don't purchase this upgrade, which takes a tremendous amount of coins, which takes a tremendous amount of money.
It's true you earn coins from leveling, but this amount is so small it won't even enable you to purchase much past a certain point. Also, eventually leveling slows down and is capped by the number of properties you own, which is capped by the number of coins you spend. See the cycle? You can also watch adds, but this is also capped at 5 adds (10 coins) per 6 hours. So basically if you don't spend money, you will have little to do in the game until you eventually are able to purchase more property slots, which at mid to high levels can take weeks or months using the ad feature.
This isn't an opinion I alone have. If you go to their facebook page users complain about this every single day and the creator chooses to ignore it because he is making quite a lot of money off of the fact that so many are willing to purchase coins.
I highly advise anyone against playing this game not only due to the cash sink but because recently Buy Land was added and it is not accessible. Well, technically it is but it's a random accessibility at best.
Also, beware if you do plan on playing the game that "boosting" is not allowed and the creator will sell all your properties if you are suspected of boosting another player.
