Nimblebit has been teasing a huge update to their massive hit Tiny Tower (Free) to celebrate its 5th anniversary since last month, and beta testing the update with folks in our forums since then, and as promised today that update has gone live in the App Store. This update contains tons of new content and features, some of which have made their way over from the spinoff/sequel Tiny Tower Vegas (Free). There’s new floors to build, new costumes, new roofs, new elevators, new BitBook posts, and much more. There’s also a new QuickStock feature as well as the ability to rename and trade your Bitizens with friends. The feature I’m most excited about however is support for the resolution of newer iOS devices. No more blurry Tiny Tower! Check out the pre-update screen on the left compared to the nice and sharp post-update screen on the right.
In addition to everything mentioned above, you can also now “prestige" your tower and start over from the beginning again, with every 50 floors from your old tower earning you one of the new in-game currency of Gold Tickets which can be used to upgrade a floor to have instant and free restocking or to instantly max out the skills of the Bitizens living there. If you choose to start a new tower you’ll still keep all your existing Bux, cosmetic unlocks, and Golden Tickets. If you’ve somehow never played Tiny Tower in the past 5 years, now is a great time to rectify that as the game is in the best shape it has ever been in. And with all the new social sharing features be sure to check out the game’s revitalized main thread or the specific friend code sharing thread in our forums to buddy up.
