Tiny Tower In Tiny Tower you build your own building, manage the businesses and bitizens that live and work in it. There are in-game missions as well as Game Center achievements that can be earned.

You get to choose from 5 different types of businesses (Food, Service, Recreation, Retail, and Creative) to make floors out of along with residential floors for your bitizens to live in. With the money you make from stocking your businesses you need to reinvest into making additional floors for more bits to live and work at. You get to choose the type of business to make but not the actual business that will open for business.

The missions in the game are based on making certain amounts of goods from particular businesses. With the completion of these are you award some bux. At random times you'll also have to find certain bits within your tower.

Bitizens live and work in the tower. Each Residential floor can house up to 5 bitizens. You have to assign a job to each bit to work in order for your businesses to operate. The bits have a different levels of desire to work in within the 5 different business types with the higher number being better. Each bit also has a dream job, so if you place a bit within their dream job you'll get a bonus amount of bux awarded. With the use of the elevator you move bitizens and VIPs that visit to desired floors. You can also change your bits' clothes if you like.

Business can be stocked with 3 different types of service or goods that can be purchased there for different prices 1 at a time. Each item costs a certain amount of coins to buy along with a certain amount of time to restock. The businesses themselves can be upgrade to increase the amount of stock of the goods which in turn also increases the amount of time to restock and increases the cost of those items. You can move your business to a different floor for a cost of some bux. To customize your business you can change the name of it and change the paint scheme.

Money in the game... you have coins in which the bitizens buy and sale goods with. This is also what you use to purchase more floors with.
