REViEW | Business Strategy Android Game

There will always be at least one (1) person in your circle, if not you, who dreams of becoming a billionaire or be at the top tier of the socioeconomic classes. Well, that could probably be achieved in the near future, but while it's still an ongoing process to get there, there are some Android-powered games that allow anyone to simulate that path to financial success.

In "Business strategy," you can start working from the bottom, saving money, and then budgeting your salary to be able to get enough savings to invest in the stock market, in bitcoin or even in commodities like cotton, gold and oil. Once you've earned more than enough, you can then start your own business, but be aware that once you start your business, you'd have to quit your job.

What I like about this game is that even if it's not realistic, it enables you to see a shallow view of what it's like to reach for the top and be one of the billionaires. The goal of the game is to reach $1 billion in your account by 65 years old without dying from poor health or unhappiness. It's really as easy as that.

During the course of the game, you'd have to watch out for news that would tell you if something profitable is incoming or would warn you if you have to get out of a certain situation (perhaps sell some stocks or sell your business due to the changing landscape).

And if I were to rate this game, I would give it a solid 9 out of 10. It's lacking one point because the game is somehow predictable and ads keep on popping every now and then. It's somehow simple, but very educational.

Some tips while playing the Business strategy game:
  • Always look at your health and happiness meters. If it empties out, you'll lose. Adjust it accordingly by increasing your expenses on healthcare, food, housing, and leisure. 
  • Buy bitcoins. Sell at peak. Look at the market technical analysis tab.
  • Check out the News tab every turn. Something bad or good happens, which you can use to your advantage.

  • Commodity prices go up or down immediately one turn after news related to that commodity breaks.
  • The stock market is somehow my waterloo. I rarely invest in it.

  • Set up your business as soon as you reach $50 million. Use your money to improve the productivity and stability of your business. Sell once its worth is placing you near the billion-dollar mark.
  • Don't borrow from the bank as its rate is high. It might force you to bankcruptcy.
  • Finally, enjoy the game! It will teach you how to think broadly about money.
