Ready for life as a shop owner? In Tower Empire, you need to build a tower full of shops and make sure they make money as efficiently as possible.
Tower Empire is our continuation to the popular Farm Empire. This time, the farm has been replaced with a tower filled with shops. You need to make sure that all shops make money as efficiently as possible by continually upgrading both them and the delivery of goods. There are also milestones to be reached, managers to be hired and honors to be won.
You receive goods in the delivery, transport them to the floors with the elevator and sell them in the shops. That's the flow you need to make sure it works optimally. At the top you can see how much money you have, and not least how much money you make per second. If you compare how much money you make per second with how much respectively the delivery and elevator can deliver, the three numbers should be about the same for your tower to function optimally.
Managers do the trivial work for you, so you just have to concentrate on upgrading the right floors. In addition, managers allow you to activate a boost that will improve a floor for a limited time. For the floors there are four different types of boosts. One makes customers go faster, one makes them pay faster, one makes it cheaper to upgrade the floor and one makes more room for goods on the floor. For the elevator there are three types of boosts. One gets the elevator to run faster, one gets it to load goods on and off faster and one makes it cheaper to upgrade the elevator. Three types of boosts are also available for delivery. One makes your worker go faster, one lets him carry more goods and one makes him load on and off faster.
When the earnings of your tower start to slow down, it is a good idea to sell the tower. By doing so, you get honors that will make your next tower make more money. If you have played Farm Empire, honors are similar to those in Farm Empire. Honors can also be used for upgrades, but be careful - if you spend all your honors on upgrades, you no longer have it to increase your earnings.
In Tower Empire, there are two things you should try to get at 100%. The first is milestones. Every time a floor reaches a milestone (most often when level is a hundred), it gets a slight improvement. You cannot reach all the milestones without restarting your tower many times. The floor file is a list of the shops you have found through all the restarts. On each floor there are at least three different shops to find, and each shop also has two rare managers that you also need to find to get a complete floor file.
In the game shop you have the opportunity to buy diamonds (for real money), as well as various aids paid for with diamonds. Time travel fastens the time forward, so you can, e.g. get a week's earnings in an instant. Stock replenishment can help you if you have been away from the game and money can help you get started quickly after a reboot. Diamonds can also be used elsewhere in the game, e.g. to change the type of floor you just unlocked or to skip waiting. In addition to diamonds that you buy, you can also find free diamonds on the floors where a manager is employed. It is random how often a manager has a diamond for you. You can collect up to 15 free diamonds a day - but if you are a VIP member, you can collect up to 30.
Every day you will get between 3 and 10 small tasks where you e.g. need to hire specific managers, reach a number of milestones or buy some levels. When you solve your tasks, you get 5-20 silver stars, which can be redeemed for prizes in the form of diamonds and boost coins. Each month you can collect up to 1500 silver stars. In total, you can get 100 diamonds and 12 boost coins if you reach 1500 silver stars. If you want access to even better prizes, you can also buy super prizes. With super prizes, you get as many as 2000 diamonds and 38 boost coins, if you reach 1500 silver stars. When a new month begins, new prizes are formed and you can once again collect up to 1500 silver stars to get all the prizes. Note that super prizes must be purchased every month if you want to get the best prizes.
When a new month starts, unused boost coins are saved, silver stars are reset and unsolved tasks remain.
When you activate boost coins, your earnings are multiplied for 5 minutes in the tower in which you activate them. There are x3, x10 and up to x200 boost coins.
There are interest rates on your diamond inventory. If you have more than 2,000 diamonds, you will lose 10% of the diamonds above 2,000 daily. However, you cannot lose any diamonds for the first 90 days after a purchase, so you always have enough time to use the diamonds you have purchased. The games always show you if the negative interest rate applies to you, with a small icon next to your number of diamonds. If you click on the icon, you can see when the interest will be deducted, that is, how much time you have left to get back below 2,000 diamonds. For VIP members, the limit is 5,000 instead of 2,000.
No interest is paid on purchased diamonds. If you buy e.g. 4,500 diamonds, your limit will be 4,500 higher until you have used the purchased diamonds. Purchased diamonds are always used before other diamonds.
You can please your friends by donating diamonds that you have earned or bought in the game. You can send diamonds directly to your friends in the game. In the diamond log you can see who you have sent diamonds to and who has donated to you.
When you reach 20% milestones the first time, the game's world map unlocks. Here you can travel to new cities around the world, and build a new tower there. It costs diamonds to unlock a new city, but then you can build your tower there as many times as you want. If one of your towers hits 100% milestones and 100% in the floor file, you will have the option to reset it. If you do, you will lose all your honor and have to start all over again on the next tower in the city. In return, you get a star, and in the long run, stars can become very valuable.
With the stars, you can buy diamond mines, thus creating a steady daily diamond income. There are different types of diamond mines, which give from 1 diamond a day and up to 4 diamonds every 10 hours! The price of a diamond mine is fixed in stars, and increases for each mine purchased of the current type. Eg. the first deep diamond mine costs 3 stars, the next costs 4, then 5, and so on. Once you have purchased your mine, time starts and when it has expired you can collect your diamonds. Only then does the time restart, so make sure to get back in time so you do not lose precious time. If you are a VIP player, you can arrive up to 6 hours late, without losing time on the next round.
