Crime City - A Guide To Success! (Android & iPhone)

Crime City - Getting Started

If you are reading this, it is probably because you have recently downloaded or you are considering downloading the game. This is an excellent game, best in it's class, and I highly recommend it. The game can be played for free, though you will find yourself wanting to spend money on gold! The following guide I've put together is merely to get you started. Once you have the tools, it is up to you to build your Crime City!

So your number 1 goal from the start is to begin building your income. Why do you need income? Well to buy weapons and armor to outfit your "gang". The game revolves around mathematical equations and knowing what the equations are will help you succeed.

Your second goal is to be able to attack and defend against other players. We will explore this shortly.

So, right after starting up the game, it will give you a class option. I highly recommend TYCOON as it will boost your economy. Once you go through the tutorials you will end up in your "hood". This is your home base. Your economy will be built on these grounds and it is your duty to protect it!

Right off the start you will have $3000 and 1x player in your mafia (yourself). Buy the following with your money: 1x Revolver, 1x Baseball Bat, 1x Trench Coat. This will give you a little bit of defense. Next in your hood, build a second laundromat and start upgrading your current laundromat to lvl2 (key note - always be building!). All buildings can be leveled to 10 but it takes a long time and lots of money. Next got into your "Add Mafia" section, then VIP and refresh until you've added 3 mafia members.

The rule of thumb is you can bring 5x mafia members to a fight per level. So at level 2 - get at least 10 members in your mafia. Each mafia member can bring 1 of each weapon type. So your next step is to get the best weapons for each type for your members. Ultimately at the start you want about 30x AK47 30x Brass Knuckles and 30x Armored Gloves.

Tip: DO NOT LEVEL YOUR CHARACTER! Wait till you are making lots of money before leveling your character. When you chose to level you character, do not do the missions. Instead fight/rob for your XP.

Next thing to do is build Ice Cream Shops. You have 10 bars of gold which allow you to build 1x Ice Cream Shop. Go to the section that allows you to earn free gold and do a few of the tasks and earn enough for a second Ice Cream Shop. These buildings are crucial for your economy.

You do NOT want to level past 9. Try to stay under as long as possible. Every time you level though, I suggest you invest your skill points into defense till you reach approximately 40-60. Then invest 1 into attack and 2 into Stamina (you want to have at least 50 stamina). You won't need energy till much later, so I suggest you don't bother investing your points there till you are past level 80.

I suggest you build every building until level 9 and upgrade them as much as possible. Keep adding members to your mafia and save up money to get the high end low character level buildings. These are the Movie Theaters, Lofts, and Night Clubs (you can build 2 of each). These are your ultimate money producers and your ultimate goal. Once you built 2 of each you are ready to power through the game and level up and kill everything around you! This could take a month or two though depending on how often you play. This is well worth it though!

Equipment

There are three ways to purchase weapons. Using in game money, using respect points, and using gold. Ultimately Gold will buy you the best of the best. But because you will eventually have a mafia of 500 people, you would need about 2000 items which could cost you a fortune in real life! If you have money, then go ahead and purchase what you want! I suggest using gold to buy explosives as they are not consumable items and the vehicles as well tend to be overpowered.

If you want to be cheap, your next best alternative is using "respect points". These are earned by attacking other players. The best way to get LOTS of respect and not level too quickly is by robbing Laundromats. It pays out 2 respect and 1xp on average. Ultimately you want to save ALL your respect points till much later in the game. Night Vision Goggles are almost best bang for buck.

Next is using the in game money earned from income. The "good" stuff is super expensive and will never be as good as the equipment you can buy with gold or respect points. However, if you have 500 people in your mafia, then you might have no choice but to fill in the gaps with these items.

Math Stuff

Defense buildings are useless. Turrets and Gatling guns are the only ones worth buying in my opinion. However the defense shown per level is not accurate. It is speculated that the defense is HALF the base stat. So if you have a base defense of 10 every level afterwards will only increase by 5 defense. Defense buildings will help guard you against robberies and attacks, but is not necessary till further along in the game. Focus on items to defend yourself from the start.

Building Monetary Increase is based on math. The important ones are the buildings available from the start. The payout per level is the best. To find out what your next level will payout use the following equation. LV1-10 Multiply the base by the following 1>3>6>10>15>22>31>42>55>75. So an italian restaurant for instances at level 10 will produce $140x75=$10500 every 3hours.

Wrap Up

So to wrap things up:

  1. Don't Level Up! Be a camper until you are ready to fight the big boys. You level to quickly and are not ready for it, you will be a major target!
  2. Remember to keep your guys fully loaded! Equip them with the best you have available!
  3. ALWAYS BE BUILDING! Always be upgrading one of your buildings. Also keep expanding your territory.
  4. Fight smart. When you go to attack - click rob. When you get to your targets hood, check his stats to make sure you can win the fight!
  5. HAVE FUN! If you have questions or need additional information/resources - go the Funzio game forum. You will find what you need there!

I'll try and answer any questions you may have - good luck and happy hunting!

      Everyone on here is hilarious. I am a level 108 and my attack is 4,931,766 and my defense is 5,261,356 and my level 17 mini account can just about beat every stat listed here lmao. Only spend points on energy and stamina. Get about 50 stamina for pvp events and put the rest on energy. Do all events as much as possible for maximum stat increase. Good luck! If you play daily and have over 2.5 mil in stats and your below level 90 your welcome to put in a request with my syndicate. TPB at 736-505-937

      level 67

      30 000 att

      35 000 def

      without paying any cent(s)

      you have to keep in mind that the number of mafia you can use is your level *5.so you have to grow up.you don't have choices.

      every mafia menber can be equiped with 5 weapons( attack weapon,melee,armor,vehicule,explosive) choosen automaticly between the best you have

      you need to havec one of each for every member you use in battle.

      ex : lv50 i can use 250 mafia member il need 250 of each type of weapon.

      you can see your stats(how many equipment used) when you fight in the syndicate battle.

      if you don't want to pay real money.

      -rob and attack other palyer to get a lot of respect point and buy the best weapon you can.

      -fight the boss as you can(i can beat him 27 times with the level up)

      - open crates every hour (i have recently won a weapon with 1870 attack /1000 def)

      -grow and add mafia wisely (i see people with 2000 mafia but they are level40)

      You say we should

      "Also keep expanding your territory."

      I've tried three times now to expand my territory -- once down and left and twice down and right. And of course, I had to pay $12,000 for each attempt. However, my neighborhood hasn't expanded on any of those attempts. Do I have to be at a certain level before this will happen? (Yes, I know, this is probably off-topic, but with all the "smart" people commenting here, I hope someone knows what I might be doing wrong.)

      Thanks, ipOwn, for this nicely written CrimeCity guide. Concerning other people's rants and derision, surely they must know there are almost always multiple win strategies in a game. And teflondog, I understand the motivation behind your comment, but think about the game of Chess and see why your comment isn't necessarily the best advice for *mastering* a game.

      Everyone else, I would be honored if you added me to your Mafia group. My code is

      Oh and I've also noticed that certain buildings will give you more respect points. Warehouses and Diners seem to be the best. I like to accumulate respect points to buy Cars and Armor with.

      I've found that if you request an add from those who are stronger than you, then the only one's left to attack are the one's you can win against. Just a tip.

      You can also add me 712 799 742. I recently just had to start over because of some stupidity on my end trying to play around with my droid and not registering my game. But at least this time I can do it over the right way.
