I am not a massive game player on my phone, I am a real girl when it comes to computer games and such, but this is one game that I actually like and I don't have to spend hours playing on it to get somewhere.
There are a few other games in this range like Tap fish (also pretty good), Tap farm, and Tap Resort. The only other one I have tried is Tap Fish, which I would also recommend.
This was free when I downloaded it, but I'm not sure if you have to pay for it now, it could have been an offer, but I don't imagine it's too expensive.
The game basically gives you a virtual clothing store. To earn coins you have to buy in items of clothing and put them on sale, in your shop. There are loads of other things you can do with your store too, you can buy decorations, change the walls and flooring and you can make it bigger by buying land with your coins, all while climbing the levels and getting more and more items of clothing unlocked to put out. You can also move anything in your shop around, so I find that quite interesting switching it all around every so often. I think the aim is basically to build up your coins and climb the levels, pleasing customers and keeping racks full of clothes.
Each item of clothing takes a different amount of time to arrive, which is a bit annoying but does at least add a bit of variety to the game. Some items take 2 or 3 hours to arrive and then you can put them out on any racks you have purchased, other items take 18 hours to arrive. They are also in different quantities. For example if you order the jeans they take 18 hours to arrive but you get 3,000 pairs to put out and each pair sells for around 12 coins I think.
There are loads of different options of racks, tables and decorations that you can buy, and they range in price greatly, I like the more expensive ones so it is taking me a while to get a lot of racks, but I'm getting there.
The only thing that I would say isn't that great about this game is that it does take a long time to build up enough coins to buy things like storage boxes to order clothes in and racks to put them out on. So it takes a while to get a big store going, which can be frustrating.
The good thing about this game is that it takes a few minutes every time I get a bit bored, I just log on to it and check my stock, order clothes if needed and put more clothes out if the racks are empty. Each level I climb means I get a new item of clothing added to my stock list available to order.
I really like this game, I enjoy changing my shop around and ordering different stock and seeing the varieties of clothes I can order. It is a good game that only take a few minutes when you feel like it to check up on everything and have a mess about with. I wouldn't say it was a high involvement game that you can spend hours on, but that works for me.
I would highly recommend this game. Especially if it's still free to download.
Summary: A good game that doesn't take up much time.
