Really enjoying it so far. IAP isn't something you need to use unless you really want to speed it up.

Its all about building the tower - splitting it between residential and different business types. You then stock the businesses with the item you want to sell. The more staff working at the businesses, the more products you can sell at once and the more money you earn. The money you earn is pretty much used to restock higher value items and build more floors.

Everything takes real life time - restocking and construction. That's where the time sink is. So be prepared to play a bit and then do other things.

If you want more coins, IAP comes into play, letting you get tower bux. That can be converted to coins. You also earn coins sending the citizens to different floors but its very repetitive and boring. However every now and again you will get given a special task or person to deliver to which has much bigger rewards, either tower bux or speeding up a construction or restocking.

The visual style is quite cute and reminds me of Little Computer People with the 8 bit style graphics.

My hints for getting started quickly, save 50 bux for the 100,000 coins. That would let you go crazy on expansion. Also always fully stuff a business before moving to the next one - which means always have ample residential floors. Also you might want to play it on the iPhone instead of iPad since it'll be easier to attend to the games needs when something completes.

cant wait. played a ton of pocket frogs and didnt need to buy IAP at all. looking forward to playing this game tonight.

still dont understand some of the judgements against IAP with this particular company when they have shown and proven they handle it pretty well. go play pocket frogs to get a better understanding of how Nimblebit operates....
