People are wrong

I’ve played highrise for years now so I know a bit about how it works. There’s a lot of reviews that say you need to spend money in order to get “good” items. That’s not true. I had good items and friends before I started to spend a little money on the game. You can join crews and get items to sell that way. There’s plenty of non-eventing or crews intended to help out new users. There are some people who aren’t nice on the game, but if you stay away from people like them, then you won’t have a problem.
There’s so many fun things to do in highrise. You can buy and sell cute items and clothes. There is also weekly eventing for you to participate in to earn ranks and rewards. Joining a crew is also a really good way to make friends. A crew is a group of people that participate in events together and get to know each other in the crew chat. Some crews have requirements for the events (this just means how many tickets you need to get in an event) but there’s so many non-eventing crews to join when you are first starting out.
When you first start out, don’t ask people for donations or free items. There’s so many ways to earn items to sell that you don’t need to ask people for free stuff. There’s giveaways you can join and possibly even win. If you want to get on someone’s bad side, ask for free items. That will surely do it.

Money Hungry, Unless you’re willing to give up the cash don’t bother.

I have played this game for awhile so I have a pretty good idea of how it works. You really can’t get anywhere without buying something. The app pushes you to buy new clothes, membership, etc; Which would normally be okay expect they’re asking for way too much money. The creators are definitely way up on their high horse. And then when you complain they tell you “you can definitely play the game without buying anything just like in real life” No. First of all when everyone else is buying overpriced items in the game and you don’t you start to feel left out. You’re not as “cool” as the others and sometimes you can be down right bullied for it. You’re pressured into spending money to fit in with the higher members. I have tested this firsthand. I went through the game without buying anything at first, it was hard to make friends, no one talked to me and no one complimented me on the very basic outfits you’re giving with in the beginning. Then I made a new account on my tablet and bought a few things. I made more friends because they people were attracted to the fact that I had things normal players couldn’t get. I was invited to more rooms. It’s all a sales tactic these people are playing with you. I’ve worked in sales and I know all the games. The creators of this app are money hungry. Don’t waste your time unless your willing to drop some serious cash.

This is pure frustration

I just recently started playing this game and I feel like this game could have potential. What I found incredibly frustrating about this game is that it’s near to impossible to get more gold unless you either buy it, trade something, or watch the ads which most of the time only gives you 2g (sometimes 5 if you’re lucky). My suggestion is maybe just for new comers you start them off with a substantial amount of gold and bubbles so they get what they want to make them comfortable and then they can do as they wish as they progress in the game. I understand this a game you made and you probably need the money but making something such as virtual money nearly hard to impossible to get is in my opinion pretty darn shady. What I’m saying if you want more people playing this game I would make some adjustments so it can be somewhat easier for new comers to feel comfortable in the game because what I’ve seen from most the the reviews people are getting bullied solely because of “lack of cool clothes”. Also people feel the need to make items way too expensive which is so incredibly frustrating for a new comer. I have had some nice people give me stuff for free but that is VERY RARE!!!

In conclusion if you were to ask me to suggest this game to someone else right now my answer would be no
