NimbleBit's Tiny Tower [Free] had an update land moments ago that among other things, addresses one of the more valid complaints I've seen about the game in that (previously) aside from building up your tower and keeping your store stocked there wasn't much purpose to the game. That's totally valid, as for some, the drive to simply make your tower taller isn't enough. That's where the new missions system comes in. Check it out:

Now the game has actual objectives which encourage you to have a wide variety of floors so you can stock up items to satisfy the mission requirements. You even get some free Tower Bux for your efforts. In addition, stock can be gifted in between friends, so you don't even need to have those floors in your tower to complete missions if you've got friends willing to send you some stock. Or, stock can be traded between players just for fun.

Some new UI tweaks have been added as well, to make floors with dream jobbers on them easier to spot. And, of course, it wouldn't be a Tiny Tower update without new floors and costumes.

    cool stuff!! I love NimbleBit games, but lately haven't got the motivation to play this a lot (like checking it thrice a day or even less) and this sure will make me bring this up more often!

    It's still not a game. When I was growing up, games involved using your mind and reflexes to learn or earn skills that helped you overcome increasingly different challenges in order to reach an end goal. This is just rote and mindless consumerism and chance, designed to light up the reward centers of the brain. So are things like Jetpack Joyride.

      I'm 31, and I guess I feel like the pinnacle of video gaming was the SNES. I know it's a totally different market, but I haven't found anything for iOS that comes anywhere near any of the SNES's best games.

    I'm 43 years old and played more then half of my life videogames and ofcourse the Snes was and still is gamersheaven console number one. But hey come on dude I love Tinytower and ofcourse its a game. A brilliant one. When it first came out I was so hooked! And that for a portable game. If you want Snes- like games then play them on your Snes. I still got all my old consoles so if I want an old skool fix I take out one of my older consoles and start playing them. Keep those great updates comin for Tinytower, love them! Great stuff!!
