What's New in Version 3.3.12
Back to the old icon, typos and small bug fixes!
Favorite game of all time. Just one problem...
I have been playing tiny tower for years. It's is my favorite mobile game to play on my phone and has been for years. I had a tower that was 109 levels tall and I had put A LOT of time and effort into it and then one day I opened tiny tower and was greeted with the tutorial and a one story tower. All my effort and time gone. And there was no way to get it back. You can even look on my Game Center account and see all of my achievements from my old tower but the tower was gone. Then after 2 or 3 days of this new tower I got a little message on my tiny tower screen saying there was an old save file found (or something along those lines, I'm paraphrasing) and it had an option to restore my old tower. I, extremely excited that I would finally be getting all my hard work back, clicked on restore and to my disappointment literally nothing happened. I clicked restore and it stayed the same with my new sad tower. Years of dedication just gone.
This may be a long review, but please read, as I go in depth as to game play. I will break it into multiple paragraphs. Also, please note that I have not spent a single dime on this app.
When you first get this game, you have 2 or 3 floors. It is cheap to construct a new floor, but it will take time, as you don't have many businesses. As you progress, it cost more to build new floors, but you also have more businesses, and are therefore making more money daily.
You begin with only a few costumes, but as you play longer, you will gradually have more. You can use these costumes to personalize your bitzens. You can also change the names of your bitzens, evict them, and change their outfits. The bitzens have dream jobs, and if you place them in their dream jobs, you get 5 bux.
There are 5 types of floors: residential, creative, service, recreation, and food. Residential floors house your bitzens. The other four are businesses, and your bitzens work here.
There are two types of payment: coins and bux. Coins are used to buy floors, while bux are used to upgrade a bitzen's talents, upgrade a floor, or rush something.
Overall game is easy and as you progress, it continues to be "challenging", but not torture.
Thank you for reading all the way through,
Exponentially less fun with time.
After making the initial investment for VIP and 25,000 bux - as that seemed a reasonable gaming expense (read also, the other options were clearly not a good deal) to actually see what the "optimised game play" would be like, I can say: don't waste your money or your time.
As you play, everything just gets exponentially more expensive; and therefore exponentially less enjoyable. The game play isn't well explained - there is no help to assist understanding the golden tickets and how to apply them, for example.
Pro tip: don't waste it on a residential floor with residents. I had five dream workers on a floor, and wasted a golden ticket on it. Literally nothing happened. I emailed support to finally learn that "upgrade all moved in bitizens" means all *newly* moved in bitizens - ie: after the upgrade. Which essentially means that is useful only on a newly constructed floor. Yeah. Stupid, eh? I thought so too. Spend it on a floor with inventory, or you'll regret it.
So bottom line: I'm out a load of money, and I'm feeling like the value isn't there after about a week of game play. I have continued to play the game, to see how it progresses, and the only exponential increase is in cost to play - the amount of bucks generated in the daily fireworks does NOT get bigger every day - it caps out at about 1000; and as game play increases, this means it takes at least a day of game play to make one upgrade.
Don't waste your money or your time.
