About DealForALiving

I believe that being frugal and making smart money choices is like any other exercise. As we continue to practice good habits in saving money where possible, finding deals for what we want, and having a good time at it, then we become better at dealing for a living.

I'm committed to sharing my experiences with getting the most out of using credit cards, saving and spending tips, and I might even add a slice of perspective without trying to be a psychoanalyst like some other personal finance folks out there.

Please let me know what you think and if you'd like to hear my take on a specific topic.

Adventure Capitalist IOS Game

I first came across Adventure Capitalist on the PC as a free game to play online. When the game was brought to the iTunes App Store, I was excited to take another deep dive and see how high I could pile the money this time around. Not only have I had more success because of past experience, but I've gotten an even better handle on angel investing, which is essentially what the game comes down to for quality players.

So let's get straight to the Adventure Capitalist Angel Investors Tips and Tricks Guide!

Adventure Capitalist Core Gameplay

Before we get to angel investing, let's take a step back and look at how the game works. If you don't have a good grasp of the basics, then there's no reason to jump straight to the advanced tips, right? In a nutshell, this is what you'll be doing:

  1. Purchase a new business and manually click on it at set intervals to collect money
  2. Scale up the business by purchasing additional businesses so you're getting more money with each click
  3. Hire a manager to run the business so you won't have to manually click to collect. This also means that when you're away from the device, the manager is still making the money on your behalf
  4. Purchase upgrades so you can increase your profit margins
  5. Unlock speed upgrades by purchasing set numbers of businesses
  6. Move up to bigger and better businesses
  7. Rinse and repeat

Simple enough, right?

Adventure Capitalist Tips and Tricks Guide

Unlock Speed Bonuses for Businesses

As in other games, your success in Adventure Capitalist will depend on speed as much as smartly allocating your money for the future. The primary way to increase how quickly you're collecting money is to unlock available speed bonuses. When you reach a set number of a particular business, then you'll automatically collect profits at 2x or 3x the speed.

So, for example, when you have 25 lemonade stands, you automatically get a double speed bonus for collecting those (meager) profits. And to make things easy on players, 25 is the first level across the board with all businesses to unlock the speed bonus.

Once you have 25 businesses in the books, your next goal is to get to 50, 100, 200 and so on. I would definitely prioritize getting to level 50 with the oil company before making any moves to get angel investors, and you may decide to flip the switch before you get to levels 100 or 200.

The one exception with unlocking speed bonuses lies with the newspaper business because you'll also get bonuses at 125, 150 (and 175 if I remember right). And while every other speed bonus is tied to the business you're purchasing, the same rule does not apply for newspapers. You'll get bonuses for lemonade stands, newspapers and car washes at the very least.

Adventure Capitalist Angel Investors Part One

Adventure Capitalist is a game that you can "beat" in the span of less than a day. In fact, if all you're interested in accomplishing is becoming a billionaire with a couple of oil industries at your disposal, it should only take a few hours to achieve those goals. But this is a game for the entrepreneur that lusts for achieving mass wealth with lots and lots of of zeros at the end (and to create jobs for the rest of the free world). The only way to get to these much larger goals is to master the use of angel investors.

On the most basic level, angel investors are awarded to you as a reason to restart the game with additional bonuses so your next time through the game is quicker, easier, and more fruitful. Depending on how much wealth you have generated this time around, the game will offer you a certain number of angel investors to start over with. Each angel investor is worth a 2% profit boost for all your businesses, so getting 50 of them essentially doubles up every profit when you start your next game. The trick is that the longer you wait and generate wealth, the more angel investors you get. It's very similar to the prestige concept in Tap Titans, and I would recommend restarting the game only after unlocking at least 100 angel investors the first time through.

If you can exercise just a little more patience until you have 200 or 250 angel investors, then you're really cooking because you'll start the next game with a 400-500% bonus. That means that even your first lemonade stands will be generating serious relative profit. Apply this bonus to oil industries and you'll literally become an oil tycoon in no time.

Adventure Capitalist Angel Investors Part 2

Based on the above recommendation, you'll restart the game with at least 100 angel investors and a boost of at least 200% to your profits from the first moments of the game. Your second play through the game should allow you to reach the same heights of wealth and achievement in about half the time, and your targets should now be set on getting at least 1000 angel investors for your next time around.

Yes, you can sell angel investors for other upgrades but I don't recommend doing so until you've amassed at least 10,000 angel investors because you're better off getting a 2% boost with each angel. And because you'll be playing through the game at least 5-6 times and repeating the process, you should be able to lose count of how much money you're making in the process.

The best part about getting deeply vested into angel investors is that once you've rounded up 10,000, there aren't any wrong moves to make because the available options are all incredibly positive ones. The struggle to get to that level of wealth and investor level is the real challenge, but with the tips and tricks I've shared, you shouldn't have too many problems getting to that happy end destination.

Update: For what it's worth my game won't start after I got 11,000 angel investors. Go figure!

      This entire article could be rewrote as "I didn't get very far and think it's best you restart somewhere between 200 and 250 AI"

      Sorry for the blunt nature of this comment.

      Some simple points of expansion would be the varying cost increments and when each business peaks in terms of usefulness.

      So when should I restart my first time? At 300 angels(or more, when I'll miss this moment...)? Now I have 50 of everything, 300 lemonade.

      And then each time at 600, 1200, 2400? What if I restart with 10 or 50 angels? Will it be useless? Why not more- too long to wait? Please, answer me, I'm waiting for your answers.
