I haven't been through Skyrim in about a week. I have Deus Ex, game of the year to several institution, sitting nearly untouched. I have about 6 games from the last humble bundle that I haven't even downloaded yet.

Tiny Tower is dominating all of my time...

Tiny tower is one of those "freemium" games where you do something a little fun, but then it starts to take a lot of time unless you give them money. In this case, it is building a tower, filling it with apartments and businesses, and stocking those businesses with products and services.

It sounds inane, and it kind of is. But I can't stop...

Anyone else ever get hooked on this evilly addictive little gem?

Dude, this game is awesome. Love the graphics and the simple gameplay.

Very similar to a simplified SimTower!

I miss Sim Tower. Someone needs to mod it to raise the elevator maximums. I would love to play it with another bit's worth of elevators.

Actually, I bet it exists. Non-existent award to the first person who googles it to figure it out.

This is as close as I could find. Hey you, coders, I'm talking to you. Make this work on my computer. With gud grafix plz.

What? Holy crap thats amazing!

I have SimTower and played it not that long ago! The end game was impossible and I couldnt figure out how to make people happy though. Totally awesome to see it live on beyond its commercial viability or whatever reason EA hasn't done rad things with it.

PS... I can't stop paying attention to Tiny Tower every few minutes.....

Ya. The iPhone version > Android. The updates on your tower don't come through on Android. I still find an opportunity to check in every hour or so.

I recommend everyone save up tower bucks for the elevator upgrade. Its so much faster to get people up and down the building.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 03/28/2012 at 05:17pm

Oh and you can get a image of your tower by going to the menu -> share tower and then saving the image. I took screenshots and then GIMP'd the pictures together, yeah seems they make it easier to do that....

I use to easily upload pics I can hotlink to, its nice.

I'm on the second elevator upgrade. It's great. Stupid game takes up all my time.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 03/29/2012 at 02:48am

:) Yeah, few games can be played easily in spare 30 second cycles as well as this one.

Timogorgon   Member wrote on 03/29/2012 at 06:40pm

Yeah the elevator upgrades are nice. My play time has decreased quite a bit now that the newness has worn off, but I do still enjoy the game and check it a couple times a day. :) I'm currently trying to optimize my work force, kicking out bitizens with crappy skills and trying to find some with dream jobs that match the businesses I already have.

I'm on a "dream job" kick too. Evicting bums is kind of satisfying. Makes me feel like a true capitalist.

Evicted someone that was straight up zero's. Felt good, those kind of people are not fun to work with at all.
