    Where as the Americans claim things by planting flags, the Japanese just stick a j in front of it. I meant the Japanese App store. Ojay?

    Cross device syncing isn't supported since we allow offline play.

    I really hope this game enjoys some content upgrades that give the user more types of businesses and whatnots. Pocket Frog was very interesting for a while, but once I got all the frogs, there was no point in going on. I'll get this game nevertheless, but I hope I won't be deleting this game down the road either because of lack of updates.

    Judging by the achievements I can tell you there are at least 80 businesses, you can have 100 floors and 100 residents. The content is already great for a free game but I'd never turn down more stuff :)

    It actually isn't really 4-10. if the stop is on the 2nd floor, it is 4 coins, 3rd floor it's 6 coins, and so on going up by two per floor.

    And meh, I need more gamecenter friends too. I really wanna see other people's towers. Anyone mind adding me? :p

    no it's Zaraxiel

    jsrco - Yes, you get two different towers. Not sure how that would work with Gamecenter since I didn't really play pocket frogs that much.

    Oh by the way, It would be really cool if you could build underground floors. I see all of this empty dirt below the lobby and my storage apartments, and wish I could move it underground where most buildings' storage is.

    Don't forget every 100 buckets of paint costs one tower bux! Not such a bad deal though. I think each change of clothes costs one coin too... and moving a floor is one bux.

    Ah yeah, got you :)

    Any chance you will change your thinking on this once icloud arrives? At least make it an option to only play online and sync? Personally I found I played Pocket Frog alot less and then gave up because it was so much better on ipad but lends itself to wanting to check in all day.

    Suffering from impatience-itis, I used my Australian account ID to download now and will see how well I can overwrite it with a version from my U.S. account tomorrow - figure worst case it's a free preview.

    Digging it so far - has the sort of mechanics that made PF such a long stay on my device yet seems to have been designed with a more personal and social framework in mind.

    Off to add people in this thread :)

    iCould doesn't fix things getting out of sync when you play offline from two different devices.

    Couldn't you handle that the way books for kindle or ibooks do? Let the user decide what the "real" one is. Or have a way for users to "save" their game to the cloud and give them control? Since it's a SP game cheating isn't an issue (or is it?).

    Not trying to tell you how to make your game - I'm sure there are lots of things I don't realize are effected by this. But as a user who is a huge fan of your games I'm trying to find solutions for you (and make more work while I'm at it).

    I'll still be downloading this tonight, been looking forward to it.
