Life simulator games appear to be gaining traction in mobile app stores these days, and one of the more promising games we’ve seen in this genre is Life Simulator 2016 published by Frozen Vortex Games. Like other games in this up-and-coming genre, this title comes with a series of mini-games, where you can control several aspects of your virtual life, such as going to school, getting a job, working out at the gym, reading books, and buying new stuff to improve your life. You can also win cash bonuses from the game’s challenges, which would further help you in your goal to get ahead in life. Additionally, the game lets you compete with friends and other players from around the world, as you strive for the highest possible Life Score.
Want to make the most out of your virtual life and become a filthy rich millionaire and then some? Want to get a raise from your boss, want to do well in school, or do you simply want to bulk up more effectively at the gym? There are many ways to make your life better in this game, and we’ve compiled some of the better ones in this Life Simulator 2016 strategy guide. Read on, and live your (virtual) life to the fullest, even in the earliest stages of the game!
1. Go Dumpster Diving In The Early Goings And Later On
You’ll start the game pretty much broke, and that means you will have to do your share of dumpster diving, as you scavenge the trash bins for food and drink. Doing so is more pleasant than it sounds at first, as all you have to do is to tap on the trash can until you’ve emptied it out. That will allow you to gather more food and drinks without having to pay for it, thus giving you sustenance in some form or another. You want to stay alive and stay healthy, and in a perverse way, dumpster diving is where it’s at.
2. Have A Breakfast As Your Only Meal
In the real world, this definitely isn’t going to work – we all need three square meals a day in order to survive. But Life Simulator 2016 is not real life, and you can further work around your early poverty by eating and drinking only in the morning, and coping with your hunger or thirst by sleeping. Somehow, this allows you to survive longer on your measly budget at first. There’s also a possibility you can score a meal or a drink at work, but for the most part, you should be good to go if you have one meal and one drink in the morning, and keep hoarding that food and drink as you go along.
3. Watch Ads To Earn Money
Your most reliable way to earn money would be the video advertisements that you have the option to watch or to skip. We would absolutely recommend watching those videos, as each ad video will earn you £100 each. Compare that to the £15 you will be earning per day in your first job. Watch those ads whenever the game asks you if you want to watch them, and if you want to speed up the arrival of new ads, you can try quitting the game right after you watch one, then come back after 15 to 30 minutes to watch another one. Yes, there are many things you need to do to expedite your progress in life, and watching ads, whether you may like viewing these clips or not, is among them.
4. Get A Job As Soon As Possible
Like in other life simulators, you’ll start out with menial jobs before you actually have a chance to earn some serious moolah at the workplace. Your first job will be as a litter picker, and while it might not sound like a fun or high-paying job, it is what it is – the only job available to you if you’re just starting out in the game. Do your best at this job, and keep on studying and improving in your job; the progress may not be as fast as you may like, but the idea here is to go from rags to riches. That wasn’t a simple thing to do for many so-called “self-made” men and women, so pick up that litter to the best of your capability, and apply for new jobs once they’ve been unlocked.
5. The Basics Of Jobs
Like in the real world, you’ll need to be qualified in a certain discipline in order to have a chance at getting any given job. For instance, you might need to do well in Computing and Physics if you want to be a game designer. There are also a lot of jobs that require skill in English and Math, and those two subjects are indeed common-sense choices when it comes to the first subjects you should be prioritizing. Once you’ve mastered those basic subjects, you can then move on to Business, Computing, Physics, and other advanced subjects. There really is no right or wrong answer when it comes to the subjects to go for, but you should always ensure that you’re spending on five classes per day.
6. Why Is The Five-Class Rule Important?
It’s not a rule as much it is a cap, but Life Simulator 2016 allows you to attend a maximum of five classes per day. Take advantage of this limit by studying all five classes, and when we say study, that means actually brush up on what you had learned. And once you’re done, you can go to sleep at around 7 p.m. or slightly earlier. And, as a bonus tip, remember that you can study both classes on top, or both classes at the bottom. When talking about multitasking, we suggest juggling only a few subjects at a time, and to juggle those multiple subjects based on what you think would be most helpful going forward as you search for better jobs.
7. Don’t Rush Your Way Up The Corporate Ladder
The better jobs will become available in time, so don’t rush trying to get hired for those jobs. Some players can get a bit impatient and may want to zoom up the food chain and be done with picking up the trash as soon as possible. What you should do is to focus on improving your rank within the job you’ve chosen, instead of jumping from one job to another, even if it’s not the best or most logical option.
8. Keep On Playing To Unlock More Gameplay Options
We won’t look into the gory details of these other features, but you can unlock those features as you keep playing Life Simulator 2016 and making progress at your chosen job. Moving into the Rundown apartment allows you to deposit money in the bank, money that would then gain interest, which you will need to collect at the soonest possible time. You will also gain access to the Gym, which allows you to improve your strength and become more popular, while becoming a more attractive prospect at other jobs.
