Tiny Tower is one of the most popular games for the iPhone, and understandably so. For one thing, it is very simple to learn; you build a tower and maintain it. Only minimal skills are required. Every time you play the game, you’ll progress. But there’s more to this game from Nimblebit of course.
Your goal is to provide work for the Bitizens (the tower’s residents). It is like a virtual ant farm. You start with one tower and a lobby. If you go through the tutorial, you will be able to create your first floor and the production floor.
The Bitizens will come in and you have to give them a job. As the Bitizens work, they’ll earn coins. You can use those coins to build more floors. When you make enough coins to make another level, you’ll get a Tower Bux bonus.
Tiny Tower is free to play. You can earn Tower Bux whenever you play the game. But you can use real-life money to buy Tower Bux to speed things up. But they are not necessary. As long as you play the game regularly, you will get the Bux. They can be earned in many ways; manning an elevator, stacking a store, helping people find their way around the tower etc.
There’s plenty to do in Tiny Tower. You can customize the tower, color the floors and the residents. You control the elevator and the comings and goings of Bitizens. You also have to realize that Bitizens have unique talents; you need to match these with their task so they become more productive. There’s plenty more to do here, which will keep you playing this for a while.
