Beat Bop: Pop Star Clicker is a new mobile game, which is available for iOS and Android platforms, that puts you in the role of a music superstar, or should we say an up-and-coming musician who doesn’t have any money upon starting the game. Instead, you start out with a cardboard guitar, busking in the streets, and as you keep clicking, you’ll be tapping your way to rock stardom. You can also recruit your own bandmates, sell your own merchandise, please your growing legions of fans, and earn money, money, money while doing all that. In a way, we think this game can be considered a hybrid of Kongregate’s AdVenture Capitalist (for its clicking mechanic) and MDickie’s Popscene (for its simulation of the music business).
As we’ve quoted them before in our Popscene tips and tricks, AC/DC once said that it’s a long way to the top if you want to rock and roll. But it doesn’t have to be a long, hard way, just as long as you follow our collection of Beat Bop: Pop Star Clicker tips and tricks.
1. Use The Time Lapse Cheat To Earn More Money Through Your Merch
The time lapse cheat is, as of now, still being accepted. And while it is, we suggest you go this route if you can’t wait till you earn your merchandise money. Go to your Android or iOS phone or tablet’s settings, set the time forward by as long as you want, and you’ll have made a killing through band merch once you return to the game. Of course, don’t forget to stock your merchandise before anything else.
2. Two Finger Tapping Does It
Legendary guitarist Eddie Van Halen calls his signature technique “two-handed tapping,” but as far as this game goes, it’s all about two-finger tapping. We would normally suggest trying more than just two fingers, but as the game doesn’t always recognize three fingers or more, it would be best to alternate your left and your right fingers so you can go about things and earn more money faster.
3. The Only Other Way Around Is Diamonds
Diamonds are Beat Bop: Pop Star Clicker’s premium currency, and if you don’t want to play dirty, you can ensure yourself of more merch money by going to the diamond upgrade icon, checking each item, and buying the merch stock you need. As a reminder, one diamond is worth about 600 stock for ten minutes.
4. Get Free Diamonds, Here’s How
Fortunately, there are a couple of ways you can get free diamonds in this game. Usually, this happens when your manager gives you a call; don’t ignore him, just answer the phone and watch the ads that he advises you to watch. Additionally, you can complete career goals and gather more collectibles, or scratch out the scratchers; these techniques work even if you’re offline, and don’t involve any ad videos.
5. A Simple Trick With The Tarot Cards
As tarot cards can either be extremely good or extremely bad for you and your career, we suggest doing this if you want to circumvent the bad results. Don’t touch the tarot card icon for some time, and if you’re connected to the Internet, pick up all available tarot cards and watch videos to skip the bad ones.
