This app thrusts you into a highly digitized, global trade system that demands your expertise. Travel the word with a keen eye for merchandising, and you’ll capitalize on everything from belts to bags, perfumes, clothes and more.
The screen is crunchy, but the price is right with the highly original, My Luxury Shop App.
The point here, like most everything else, is to make money. Trade items and fly between countries to accrue digital money and rubies. You’ll be flying something between a plane and a spaceship, cruising along within the most pixelated 8-bit landscape I’ve ever encountered.
Typically, I find this type of format totally enthralling. However, this app is so highly digitized and pixelated, that you’ve got to strain to read the text. For those that can read the instructions, you’ll encounter a sensitive and highly detailed trade system allowing you to train workers, sell items, build stores, travel aplenty, and ultimately earn (digital) profit.
From New York City, to Brazil, Dubai, London, Paris, Beijing and beyond, you can travel this landscape from top to bottom in search of the best items and most lucrative ways to sell.
Concept and Functionality:
This concept is original, cool and fun. The primary question is, “Why not?” when it comes to spending time selling digitized items rather than real ones. The app has a highly colorful template, and for 8-bit collectors, may just be an absolute must!
It has a backing soundtrack that reminds me of a Gameboy that’s been dropped on the floor one too many times, but hey, it’s kind of catchy.
In general, for the right gamer, My Luxury Shop it could be an absolute blast. For people who loved Zelda or Pokémon adventures that required familiarity with a highly complex and intricate alter-world, My Luxury Shop will probably hit all of the right buttons.
For a limited time, this app is 75% off. It’s optimized for the iPhone 5, and comes with enough bells and whistles to keep the most demanding gamers involved.
While it has its flaws, it still brings something highly unique and interesting to the table. Now if only I could wear a digital gold watch.
My Luxury Shop requires iOS 6.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
