Welcome to quickgamer’s Tiny Death Star walkthrough guide for beginners. For those that played Tiny Tower, the game mechanics will be easy to grasp, since there are actually just a few new features added, besides the Star Wars themed stuff of course. Check out other guides for the complete list of Bitizens, Levels, VIPs and Scenes.
Levels are the building floors you have to add in order to make your Death Star bigger, in order to create more Job Positions and also for adding more residential rooms. You can add a new level by tapping on the top button in the middle. The credit cost increases as new levels are added, but so is the credit generation from the business levels. There are 6 type of levels;
- Residential: you need residential levels so new humans start living in the Death Star, becoming available at the same time for a job position.
- Imperial Levels: Once unlocked, you can start completing assignments, which are special quests that take lots of credits to complete and have bigger rewards in terms of Imperial Bux.
Once you add a level, you need to wait a certain amount of time for it to be constructed, or otherwise pay 1 Imperial Bux to speed up the construction.
[box type=”info”]IMPERIAL LEVELS. What’s so special about Imperial Levels?. Once you reach the fifth mission and complete it, you will be granted access to Imperial Levels, these let you complete Imperial Assignments.[/box]
Assignments are carried out within the Death Star itself. For instance, the first task is to “Extract the Rebel Secrets”. But it’s not so easy, you need Supply Officers to obtain the necessary items. The first one is handed out for free, but for the following ones, you will have to either keep playing and wait for them to appear, or spend 1,000 imperial credits to get one to assemble an item. Besides, only 1 Supply Officer can work at the Interrogation Room at a time. Also, you might need of multiple Imperial Levels to carry out some Assignments
Each part needed to be assembled takes some time, although you can always speed up the process by spending some precious Imperial Bux.
JOBS – BUSINESS LEVELS.
So how do Jobs work exactly?. First of all, each level has 3 job positions available. Only 1 of them is active at a time, so what you are basically doing when adding multiple bitizens to the slots is making sure you can choose a job that fits your time needs, the third slot is always the one that yields the most coins, but also takes a longer time to order the stok
Every job slot has 2 stages. The first is meant to order the goods, which takes time, and the second slot is to sell the goods, which also takes a certain time. You can speed up both processes by spending imperial bux.
Once you have all 3 job positions occupied, only a single slot can make an order for stock. However, all 3 positions can sell once they received the stock. You should always start with the job position that takes longer to receive the stock, since this is also the one that will take longer to run out of stock. In the meanwhile, you can keep placing orders in the two remaining slots.
[box type=”info”]WORKING BITIZENS. These bitizens are randomly generated for each player. What this means is that you are not likely to find another player that also got the same name, dream job, birthday and skills that you did. The bitizen character avatar comes indeed from one in the album, but you can get the same avatar with different stats.[/box]
Each unit sold will give you 1 credit, which does not seem much, but when you find that each character can sell multiple units and that you will eventually have lots of floors selling stuff and services, then the credit counter will start increasing at much faster rates.
When in the “Hire a Bitizen” menu in a business level, you will see the best applicants first, with their corresponding stat highlighted. Notice that if you don’t have unemployed bitizens, you will be shown employed ones as well and that is one way of moving them from one Job position to the other.
UPGRADE RANK. What you do by upgrading a leve rank is allowing it to upgrade the amount of stock the level can hold at a cost of X amount of bux.
You sure need something, or somebody, to fill in all those levels. There is where the bitizens, this time Star-Wars themed characters, will start flowing in by getting inside the elevator and wait for you take them to the right floor. In fact, this is what you will do most of the time, grab the elevator and take them to their spot.
If a bitizen actually moves in, instead of just using a service in one of the levels, you will get profile card detailing the skills, name, birthday, level, etc.
A bitizen living and working in the Death Star has 4 skills; Food, Service, Recreation and Retail. The higher stat is the one you must take into account when giving the bitizen a job, since the higher the skill, the more the ordering time is reduced. The bitizen will get its dream job only when you already added quite a few levels.
EVICT. Evicting a Bitizen = fire him from its job position. But not only you will get rid of him from a specific job, but you will also kick him out of the Death Star.
If you want to force-unlock new bitizens to come to your Death Star to live and work is by tapping on Residential levels that have empty slots and rent them at the cost of 1 bux. This way you will get right away a human bitizen ready to work at another level.
Dressing Up the bitizen a differently with one of the multiple costumes available doesn’t change anything, and it’s there merely for fun. Special Costumes will cost you bux though.
Not every single Death Star bitizen visiting the Death Star will stay there for work, some just pay a visit to a store or service level.
Each time you take a bitizen to the right floor, it will immediately give you a few credits.
RECRUITING OFFICERS. Recruiting Officers appear randomly and will help you move new bitizens into the residential level you deliver it to. NOW, they not only get you a single bitizen, but actually fill up ALL rooms in a single move !!!!.
[box type=”info”]Bitizen of Interest. You will randomly see a blue alert icon at the bottom, which ask for your help to find a particular Star Wars character in the death star. Once you find the right character, you will be given 1 Imperial Bux.[/box]
Once you’ve transported a few bitizens to their respective level, you will be introduced to Missions. Missions, or quests, can reward you with quite a few credits/coins when you complete them, and they are a good way of following the right path to build your Death Star
Remember to collect your reward once the mission gets completed.
Scenes do not seem to give you any special rewards besides the fun of watching the clip itself. They are unlocked by delivering a specific character to that level. Check out our album guide to find out which character triggers which scene.
The album shows you the complete catalogue of Bitizens, Levels and Scenes, that is of course, until you actually unlock them. Remember you can force unlock a character by spending Bux.
The inventory is where stuff such as supply officers are stored.
Holonet = Facebook Wall. The bitizens living in the Death Star will start posting their thoughts on the Holonet wall, most of them are useless, but some could give you a clue of where the bitizen should actually be working.
TINY DEATH STAR TIPS.
- We suggest that you spend the first Imperial Bux in purchasing credits, otherwise adding new levels during the first gaming sessions can get painfully slow.
- Levels with more employees can stock and sell more products.
- The red arrows are your best friend to quickly look for the elevator. This becomes important when you have more than 20 floors.
- Your businesses continue selling items even when you are away.
- Icons Matter. Take a look at the top-left corner of each level to see if there are any job slots or rooms available for your bitizens.
- The 2nd and 3rd items produced by a business sell for two and three Credits instead of one.
- If you want faster elevators, you can buy them at the Store, they cost bux, but not so many. Most of them are locked and you need to buy the previous version in order to unlock the following one.
- It does not make sense to place a business level if you don’t have residential levels with rooms available.
- How do you Fire a Bitizen?. Can you move an employee from one Job to the other?. At the beginning, you might think that they only way to empty a job position in a business level is to evict a bitizen, but you thought wrong. Instead of tapping on Evict, tap on Job
- Remember, Bitizens looking for a Job will only move in to the Death Star if there are residential rooms available.
- When adding a new level, take a look at the level type distribution chart. Too many of one kind means buyers appear less often.
