NYC Dream features an interactive game with a distinct goal and arena that differentiates it from other similar apps. The game features the realm of New York City and the variety of business transactions that go on there. Players become involved in the city in any way that they dream by buying and selling products having changing values. Players do this in an attempt to pay off a loan they have been given and, as they have no money, they must rise to the challenge of working the fully functional business system to their advantage.
The game features 50 different kinds of goods to be traded, from Coffee to Jewelry, Yankees Tickets, Used Cars, and much more. The player can go to any number of iconic New York City locations, such as Madison Square Garden, the Empire State Building, or the Brooklyn Bridge. Once there, players buy goods and go to another location to sell, making money with each successful business transaction. Handy arrows help first time players make their way through the layout of the game and guide them through their first successful transaction.
The loan must be repaid in 30 days from the start of the game, and a new day begins each time the player goes to another location to complete a transaction. The game keeps track of the day for the player in the upper left hand corner at all times. The home button in the lower left hand corner takes players to the home street, an engaging animation where they can view their accomplishments by clicking on the glinting trophy in the middle. 30 achievements are possible and, once completed, they will light up in the list for the player to view.
The player's money and loan information is available at the bottom of the screen, as well as his or her bag and its contents. Players must repay their loans before the 30 days are up. NYC Dream can be played via Game Center, allowing users to compete with friends and share their big city adventures.
An original new game idea, NYC Dream 1.1.0 provides an unparalleled fantasy world for its users. Once there, they can explore the ups and downs of business in China Town, Washington Square, Wall Street and more. This fun simulation of New York City business lets players realize their dreams of being a part of big business in an animated and realistic world.
"Players live their big city fantasies with NYC Dream," says Shi Yan Zheng of Gate9. "Compete in a friendly and exciting replica of city business!"
