    A nice little timewaster with solid mechanics and great pixel-art that you can drop in on from time to time. It won't get your heart rate up, but there's plenty of micro managment with excellent cross-device support. It isnĀ“t a new Little Computer People, but it is sure to hit you with a feeling of nostalgia - until you realize how damn shallow the whole game is.

    Tiny Tower's real question is about the scale of its economy, then, and whether you can stomach playing a game that becomes increasingly desperate in its desires to part you with chunks of your own money.

    A well presented freemium take on Theme Park-style games, Tiny Tower wins plaudits for its early activity and quirky nature, but lacks long-term compulsion.

    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.
