  • By taping a house you can move people in the house but this only happens at certain times.


  • Quests help you unlock more buildings.
  • The more you do the more you unlock.
  • If you complete all of them them you unlock the Golden Gate Bridge.


  • Factories make you money and help you gain xp.
  • Build as many factories as you can but remember you can only build as many as your population allows.
  • When you tap a factory you will see a list of contracts to take.
  • You must complete these on time to make money.
  • After you do a contract you must clean the factory and start over.
  • You will see a broom icon over a factory that needs to be cleaned.

Expanding your Town

  • Each expansion is 9X9
  • Go to the store menu and tap expand to expand your town.

Visiting Neighbors

  • You can go to the store menu and tap neighbor to visit a neighbor.

  • You can only visit 5 neighbors a day.

Factory Tips to Gain Fast XP and Coins

  • Set all of your Factories next to each other. This will increase your speed of gaining the coins and xp. Also make sure they have the same contract going at the same time. This 
  • way you will only have to visit your town at one time instead of a bunch of times. This will increase you productivity of your factories.
  • Make sure to activate your push notifications. This will alert you when you need to check your factories. If you wait too long then you can lose time and money but with push notifications you can prevent this.
  • After you factories make you items you will earn you xp and coins. (this will be different with different items) After you harvest the items you need to clean the factory. You will gain 1 xp and 5 coins per factory that you clean. After you clean it you can then start from the beginning.
  • Make sure to keep your factories going at all times.
  • If you wait too long and a contract expires it really isn’t worth reviving it so just let it go.
