Playing this game needs a good financial support. There are many things in this game will cost you much money to survive than other F2P on the market. I admit I have spent quite a lot on F2P. But Business Tycoon may cost you even more.

There is a quest, you don't know it's a serial quest when you accept the quest.

First quest is buy gold from the item mall minimum US$1. After you completed the quest, the 2nd quest appeared immediately, Buy gold minimum US$1 to complete it. SO you tell yourself, what the heck, it's only One Dollar, and the reward looks nice so you spent 2 dollars to complete the quests. Then the 3rd quest appeared again, buy gold to make it to US$30. Now, you were hesitated, but you already used your credit card or pay pal twice so you know it won't take long to buy $30 gold from the item mall. Wow, now you completed the 3rd quest and got a medal from the city mayor. Congratulation, but the quest still not finishing yet, the 4th quest ask you to buy total amount up to US$ 50.

Now, the quest seems never got an end or you may think the greedy never find a place to sit peacefully.

On the item mall, they even selling gold up to US$ 4,999.00. It is even more greedy than a online casino, however, you still have a chance to win something from a online casino but you are guarantee never able to get anything back spent in this game. 

The game did not update its poor interface but just added another real money game today. It's call undersea treasure. Wow, you may think about isn't this a business tycoon game? why the hell it sounds like a pirates game. Without spend real money, you won't be able to play this newly added feature. Now, the business tycoon makes me believe that those spent money to play this free to play game are real business tycoon.

Wow the game doesn't sound like a game at all! Sounds more like spend your money here to buy a little picture of a medal for your account so everyone who looks at you can see that your cool because you got the medal!

Rip off game...how the heck does a game like this even get made? Who would even play something like this? I mean I would if I worked for a company that paid all the expenses but not just to play for fun at home.

Business Tycoon is poduced by a China company, they sell the game to different territor agents. It's DOVO in the USA, and it's Family Fun in Asia, server in Hong Kong. The US Business tycoon version is very old version compare with Hong Kong version. I don't know if DOVO will update their game any time soon or never or custom made for the USA territory.

There are some people playing this game, and as everyone may know one fact, people try not to pay for a F2P because it might make him feel stupid to do so.

But Asian market are totaly different market, all kind of F2Ps included terribly made F2Ps on the market, and many game agents may hosting the same game included some P2Ps. People in Hong Kong or Taiwan would spend a few thousand US dollars into this game and brag how much he spent in the chat channel, or complaining the reward is not good enough after spend US 100 dollars to spin the reward wheel, something like that. So to make others to think they are rich is how they playing F2P as well as other game. I also heard they might steal something to get money to play F2P, or even selling drugs to get money.

Actually, the basic of this type of webgames are all the same, such as Lord Of Ultima, you need to upgrade the building, and it will take you 1 day 20 hours to finishing the upgrade. Everything you click will take you time to wait, during the waiting time, you can log out because there is nothing left for you to click.

The webgame origins from raising pet on your screen, you need to feed your pet daily, so is Business Tycoon. They are different from other F2Ps required to download and installoed in your PC,  after 2 years, if you still remember your login name and pswrd, you found your character still there. But this type of web game depends on each game, it will removed everything you have in the game in 45 days.

That said, if you want to play this game, you have to know if you are capable to login to play everyday or just playing for a while.

If you do not login to play everyday, you won't do any good, or say you do not even need to play the game. Wanna know why?

Seriously, this sounds alot like one of those Facebook-games by Zynga :S I rather play games that cost a monthly fee than games where you have to pay for bonuses and stuff. In the long term its usually cheaper to pay the monthly fee.

Though I thing that the "normal" monthly fee of 12.95 euro should be lowered since the companies behind a huge MMO earns shitloads more money than they spend on making and keeping up the game.

This game, I will not even try! Not worth it.

Some top players on several servers seem to spend such an insane amount of $, like 5k$ per week. At a point that it's so ridiculous that they are probably admin people, and trying to get other players spend too to compete with them. It's plain ridiculous. It's only a browser game, where you click here and there, nothing more.

It''s one thing to have a opinion, but enforcing one is unconstitutional.

 Bingo Gold!  This is ironic;  there is a game about being in business that drags you into dumping real funds......and they make money.

 

Lesson learned!

You gotta admire their chutzpah though.  Putting a quest in the game that tells you to give them money to complete it.  If only I had a team of 100 developers who all worked for free.  I'd be rich! Rich I say!  RICH!

I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.
