App Store Description

From Rags to Riches - Instructions

Goal: The goal of the game is fairly straightforward - try to get as much money as possible. You start the game at the age of 5. At the age of 65 you will enter retirement and no longer receive income for doing Jobs. At the age of 100 the game will end.

Stats: The Stats page shows you how much your cost of living will be at different ages and allows you to adjust how much you spend on your Health and Happiness. Adjusting these amounts will affect your Productivity, which will affect how much money you earn when doing Jobs and how much your earn from your Investments. You can start a new game with the "Restart" button.

Jobs: You start the game at the age of 5. You will be able to make money right away by doing the Lemonade Stand Job. You will need to complete Skills and buy Property to become qualified for better paying Jobs.

Invest: Do be successful you will need to learn to Invest your money well. When you start the game, you will only be able to put money into a Savings Account, which will give you 2% interest per year. Once you turn 18 you will be able to Invest in Low Risk Stock, Medium Risk Stock, and High Risk Stock. The interest on these Investments will vary throughout the game from -10% - +15% (Low Risk), -20% - +30% (Medium Risk), and -40% - + 60% (High Risk). Make sure to keep an eye on the Charts page so you can buy low and sell high. You are allowed to take out Loans to help pay for Property, Skills, or living expenses while completing a Skill. The amount you can borrow is determined by the Skills you have competed.

Charts: The Charts page allows you to look at the history of your Net Worth and how the Low, Medium, and High Risk Stocks have been performing. You can use this information to determine when would be the best times to change your Investments. While you are doing Jobs, keep an eye on your Net Worth. If you see it start falling, it might be a good time to move your money to a different Investment.

Skills: You will need to complete new Skills to be qualified for certain Jobs and to increase how much you can borrow in a Loan. To learn a new Skill you will need to have enough money to pay the tuition cost and for your living expenses for 9 months. You are not allowed to earn income while learning a Skill, but your Investments will continue to grow or decline. Some Skills must be completed before a certain age, but you don't have to turn a certain age before learning new Skills (you just have to complete the prerequisite Skill and have enough money).

Property: You will need to buy different items from the Property page to be qualified for certain Jobs.

User: You can switch between Users and your games will be saved. You can also use this page to submit your score to Game Center.
