IPAD Time Waster Games: Best Friends
Genre: Puzzles (See Pictures)
I like this game. It is well designed, thought provoking and engaging. It does spam the fuck out of you to buy extra content but with all the rewards and bonuses, you don’t actually need to spend a dime on the game. The main dislike to this game is in order to unlock some of the levels, you need to have other Facebook friends that play the game as well. I have not had that issue yet where I could not unlock a level but I could see that if you did not have Facebook, you would not get very far. It’s pretty annoying anyway that you need Facebook friends in order to play a game. I’m assuming that you would have to pay with your rewards or money to unlock those levels if you had no friends but I have not verified that. Some levels are easy and some levels are challenging with a mix of side quests, there is a good balance. You do have to strategize which I like a lot.
Only if you like puzzle games and have friends that play as well. I have yet to spend any money on it and have made it to level 157.
Covet Fashion: Challenge Tip
Some of the challenges provide additional clues other than the picture and description. You will see a bar, close to the top, highlighted in pink. (See picture) Click the bar. This will open up a new pop-up window showing clothing items that are geared towards the theme. These items are not required. Some of those items might already be in your closet or you can buy them. Whether you buy them or not, it’s a good guide to tell where the theme is going and how other players are going to be dressing their character.
Some challenges also will have a little box in the corner that resembles a wand. This is the prop options. The challenge will allow you to use props in three different areas of the picture. Covet does not have a huge prop collection but props are free so if it fits the theme go for it.
Tips for beginners:
Daily: Every day, Covet rewards you with 100 diamonds and 20 tickets.
Enter daily challenge.:
This is the best challenge to enter everyday because there is no restrictions and you earn $500 covet cash just for entering.
I like this one because I can put on any unworn outfit and enter. I don’t ever expect a high score with this one since I’m using whatever outfit I have but eventually that daily 500 cash adds up!
If you are a beginner and low on funds, do not enter the flash back challenges. These challenges can be really expensive!
The flashback challenges require several pieces from previous seasons and if you do not have those items, you will have to buy them.
Jet Set Challenges:
You can do the jet set challenges as many times as you want.
You do not earn prizes with these challenges but you do earn stars. Stars will help you unlock other jet set levels and you can earn 500 diamonds.
Jet Set Challenges usually only last 8 hours and voting begins. So you find out results pretty quick. These challenges are also easy to win.
If you have the funds to spend, do the series challenges. These are like 5 to 8 challenges.
If you do all of them, the prizes are really good and this is only for entering them all!
The only thing that really sucks as a beginner, you usually have to buy 2 to 4 pieces per challenge.
You can borrow items from Facebook friends and if you are in a fashion house – you can borrow them too.
You can only borrow 1 item per challenge.
Pairing the right hair and makeup can bring up the score of your look when it comes to voters.
Eventually, in higher levels, details are going to be very important. (Jewelry, handbags, etc.)
I noticed short hair and albino skin do not do well in voting. Voters tend to like long hair and tanned/darker skin tones. (Just my opinion though)
You can view the top looks on the front page and that will give you a good idea on how people vote. I noticed a lot of voters have shit taste too. I don’t know why.
If you are going to buy diamonds, wait until Covet Fashion has a sale. They have a lot of sales!
All the challenges have some sort of theme going on. Pay attention to the picture and the description of the theme.
Many voters will not vote for your look if it resembles nothing to the theme.
Save your funds and only buy what you need for a challenge. Items cost an arm and a leg and you will run out of money very quickly.
When you do have to buy something, keep in mind that you might need that outfit in another challenge. Pick items that can be paired with other things.
Likes do nothing to help you. It just shows that somebody thought your outfit was cool. It does not help with voting.
Unworn & Season:
Max your unworn & season bonus if you can. This can put a 3.5 score outfit over 4.0 which will land you a prize.
You can edit an outfit up until it’s closed out for voting. This is handy if you don’t have the covet cash to buy something. Enter the challenge anyway, get the entry reward and then edit the outfit and buy the item you need with it.
Tucking in Shirts:
There is a tuck button that will tuck in a shirt. This will give your outfit an entirely different look and is helpful if a lot of people are going to be wearing the same look and you want to set yourself apart.
You can switch from classic to modern models as many times as you want. If you entered a challenge with one type of model, you have to stay with the model until the challenge is over.
Do not try to enter every challenge. This game can be addicting and you can end up paying a lot of real money to play it. Start with the Jet Set & Daily Challenges. Save your diamonds and $500 covet cash for a few days and then enter another challenge. Pacing yourself is key.
