My current game of choice for the past couple weeks is Tiny Tower. I had watched one of Ingrid's (MissGlamorazzi) vlogs and she was showing her progress in this game, and it looked so cute that I instantly jumped on my Droid Market and downloaded it ASAP!
This game is super fun, super cute and you can stay away from it for as long as you want and come back to it whenever. It's FREE - but if I had to pay for it, I would!
Pretty much it's the modern version of Sim Tower - a PC game I used to play wayyy back in the day - except it's not as technical or time consuming.
Basics of the game:
Build your tower floor by floor, either with residential floors or business floors - there's 5 different types of businesses; Food, Service, Recreation, Retail, Creative.
Use the elevator to move "Bitizens" (bit citizens - how cute?) into the residential floors or drop them off on a business floor for some extra cash flow just for using the elevator.
Assign your Bitizens to open positions on the business floors. Bitizens have career preferences, so you can either assign them to a position that you want them to be in or you can be selective and assign them to their dream job.
Bitizens can either have a red sad face (usually when they're unemployed), a yellow "bored" face (when they're assigned to a job, and a green happy face (when they're assigned to their dream job). I'm not sure if you get anything special for the happy faces, but it's my own OCD to only move in Bitizens that I'm able to assign to their dream jobs per the businesses I have open in my Tiny Tower.
OH - This is super cute! The Bitizens have a BitBook (like Facebook) I like reading their random posts about getting their jobs, are they happy, random Bitizen garble
When you go to build a new floor, you can check your stats and see what type of businesses are in demand
You can add friends on Mobage - the owner of the game - there's really no point in this, you can't do anything at your friend's tower other than look at it (boring)
There's also achievements you can accomplish - I don't think I've won any of these yet - I'm kinda confused why some of them are yellow stars and some are grey stars
What else, oh, you can upgrade the elevator too - makes it move faster for when you are manually taking Bitizens to each floor - kinda cool, but not something I strive to complete any time soon.
