Crime City Game on Facebook
Playing Crime City on Facebook
Playing Crime City on Facebook involves helping both yourself and your friends. Much like Mafia Wars and Mob Wars, this game relies upon adding friends so you can build a good mob that will earn you both cash and collection items to help you get ahead in this game.
You start off with a certain amount of money - can't remember how little, actually. But you will quickly find that setting up your own coffee shop will earn you energy. Energy is refilled as time passes, so when you log into the game your energy will be fully refilled. Don't collect energy from your coffee shop as you enter, but do some jobs before you collect energy from your coffee shop.
In that way, you will ensure the full benefit of energy accumulated, and you can't add energy above the limit you have anyway, so spending energy by either stealing, robbing, destroying, threatening is part of the game.
When you collect energy from your coffee shop, it's also nice to know that visiting friends (at the bottom of your screen) will earn you twenty energy points EVERY single day - and protecting their property items will earn you BOTH cash and sometimes energy or collection items you need in your own neighborhood.
Helping Friends Brings Good Will to Yourself
Helping friends brings good will to yourself, and fighting friend bosses will make them more likely to help you achieve success against your own rivals.
You CAN rob fellow players, but you shouldn't do that until you have a big mob since revenge is a typical reaction from rivals. Fighting bosses and friend bosses won't offend anyone, so that is the best way to proceed.
You add energy to both your attack levels and defence levels each time you pass a level, so you may quickly become a rather powerful boss when you appropriate your skill points wisely.
When You Log Into Crime City
When you log into Crime City, you can send free gifts to friends, and it's a good idea to do this. It will motivate others to do the same, and you are more likely to be remembered when you gave one of your friends an item they needed to finish a collection, to upgrade buildings - or simply as a sign of good will.
This is one of the major concepts in social networking games: you help your friends, and you stay loyal towards each other. In fact very good principles to live by, both online and offline. :-)
Arrows for Bonus
When you move into a neighborhood you will quickly notice little arrows above characters or buildings. When you complete these assignments, you get a dollar bonus which is useful for buying more weapons, buildings (or upgrading them), and also to have good potential for future assignments.
Sometimes a burglary may involve buying tools, so finishing these assignments in the correct order can earn you lots more money than if you just chose to finish jobs at your own discretion.
