    Tiny Towers is a microsystem in your pocket. It will take over your waking life as you worry about restocking items and whether your tower needs another foodstall or a car showroom, it may even have you waking in the middle of the night. But it does all this in such a cute way that you'll forgive it every time.

    Tiny Tower represents the next great chapter in freemium games. Call it Farmville 2.0.

    By flying in the face of tradition and encouraging players to stay engaged for as long as they like, Tiny Tower has set a wonderful new standard for freemium games on the App Store. With great presentation, style, and gameplay, this is one tower you'll want to move in to.

    The game has a great charm to it, with plenty of humor to boot.

    As with just about any freemium title there's no harm in trying out Tiny Tower, but you'll be hard pressed to put it down after getting acquainted with the folk you house, employ and keep merry.

    With an astonishing pixel art style, great integration with Push notifications and an addictive gameplay, Tiny Tower is actually one of the best social games for iPhone and iPad. The game is full of humour, but probably some players will hate the act of repeating and repeating the same tasks again and again.

    Apart from the delightful pixelart visual style, there's nothing particularly enjoyable or interesting about Nimblebit's 'freemium' effort. You build a tower, floor by floor, with the 'goal' simply to see how high you can build.

    The game is a good timewaster and generic like to usual builders. If you are patient, you never have to buy bucks, they come to you. Tiny Tower is worth it for it's price... free. Expand

    One of my favorite iOS games. You can build floors, look at BitBook, hire Bitizens and stock your floors. What is there not to like? And for the best part, its FREE! Expand

    It's free, it's addicting. Man why are some casual games so good? You really don't need to pay money to enjoy, I do not know what the other users are talking about. Getting tower bux is very easy simply buy just playing the game. Be patient. 2 days and i'm already on 14 floors!. Give this game a try, and be patient! Expand

    I'm one of the few who actually played Mega Mall Story by Kairosoft before Tiny Towers. Let me just say that once you play MMS, Tiny Towers pale in comparison across everything from the game depth to the art direction. Disappointed that Nimblebit has gone to the freemium route all the way. Expand

    The first time I played this game I liked it a lot, but after a time playing is this game very boring.

    This game is about building a tower. In my honest opinion this game is boring, I don't reccomend it. You cannot doing anything else rather than move an elevator. Wow so exciting. The gameplay is very simple and repetitive but the graphics is not so bad. Also for everything you want to do you need to wait until the requested time is elapsed, but when you reach an higher level you need to wait like 15 hours to see some change in your tower. Expand

    Kind of a blatant money-grab... The "Tower Bucks", which are basically required to make the game progress at a playable pace, are expensive and annoying. Expand
