It wasn’t too long ago when we covered City Mania, a town building game from Gameloft that was recently released for iOS and Android devices. As a recap, this game allows you to build the most awesome city possible, choosing from hundreds of different buildings as you expand it from a small town to a “big, bustling metropolis.” There are also landmarks and tourist attractions to be found in this game; if you want to include the Eiffel Tower or the Leaning Tower of Pisa in your city, this game will allow you to do so, provided you’ve got these attractions unlocked. But beyond those things and other cool features in this game, there are also various characters with their own unique and oftentimes funny personalities – you can collect them as you go on playing the game, and as we had explained last time around, these quirky characters are called Bizzies.
As Bizzies play such an important role in the game, we thought it would be a good idea if we focus on them exclusively for a moment for our new City Mania strategy guide. This guide deals on how you can get more Bizzies in the game, so read on if that’s been quite the challenge for you as of late.
1. Buy More Bizzies
Now this should really be a last resort, or something that you can do if you’ve got some extra money to spend. You can buy more Bizzies, or spend real money to unlock them, should we say, by buying a Rare, Epic, or Legendary crate, each of which contains Bizzie tokens. That’s all well and good if you’re willing to take this route, but the caveat here is that you still won’t have any control over the Bizzie you’ll be able to unlock.
2. Open Free Crates
If you’re hesitant to spend your hard-earned money on Bizzie crates, then you’ve always got the option to wait every six hours or so for your free crates. During those intervals, City Mania will ask you if you want to watch an ad, and after you’re done with the 30-second (or less) clip, you’ll get a free crate. Unfortunately, there are only two items inside each of them (they are free, what did you expect?), and the maximum you can get is three Bizzie tokens per crate. Still, that’s better than not getting anything at all, and as we often say, these freebies can add up. It’s going to be a real grind, might we add, but if you’re patient enough, it will be worth it.
3. Complete More Missions
The missions in City Mania are an easier way, we’d say, of getting Bizzies, though you may find it a bit difficult to complete the missions that do reward you with rare crates, or even those coveted Legendary crates. These crates come with a ton of items inside, as well as Bizzie Tokens, so always look at the available missions, and work toward completing them so you can get the Bizzies you want or need in the game.
4. Don’t Forget The Daily Missions
Not to be confused with the ordinary missions we mentioned above, the dailies in this game are randomly generated. But completing some of them will give you Bizzie tokens as a reward. But therein lies the catch, as the number of tokens you can get tends to be lower than the tokens you can potentially get with your Free Crates – think about one or two tokens for completing a daily mission. That doesn’t sound worth it, given that the dailies can be harder than the standard missions, but if you keep completing these missions too, they can add up. Once again, a little is better than nothing at all!
5. The Bizzie Bureau – What’s In It For You?
Lastly, you’ll notice that in City Mania, there’s a building called the Bizzie Bureau. This is a special building that could help you unlock Bizzies, but as is often the case in this list, there’s a catch that you should keep in mind. And it won’t be an easy decision to make if you’re torn between using this method or not – the game will ask you to produce and spend an almost unreal amount of items so you can unlock the Bizzies you’re looking for. But you can make this process easier by starting early on when your city doesn’t have too many items to produce. Either way, there is a good chance that your progress will be hampered, as the items that you will normally be using to grow and expand your city will be going toward unlocking Bizzies and completing the favors the Bureau asks of you.
As you progress further, the requirements will likewise progress and become harder, and it’s going to take you longer to fulfill the favors. In fact, you may even find it almost impossible to fulfill them. Think carefully before choosing to make use of the Bizzie Bureau, because if there’s one thing about these characters, they’re arguably a more prized commodity than the premium currency itself. Their importance in City Mania could not be understated, and the sad reality is that most of the ways to unlock them won’t be easy and/or affordable.
