Seek-and-find game. Little Shop Big City invites players to try to open your own business in a big city. As you are short of money you work at different shops all over the city to gain experience and earn enough cash to fulfill your goal. Be ready to work at espresso shop, newsstand, floral shop, furniture gallery and spa and beauty. Every shop contains tons of items that are scattered around, and your task is to find the objects according to customers’ orders. You are to serve at least 10 customers, within the time limit in order to proceed to the next day, but if you serve 15 customers you earn gold star and qualify for the bonus round. If you get stuck, click on the hint button and customers’ orders turn from text messages to pictures. You have limited number of hints though you can replenish them by finding special question marks in the shops. Another new bonus is a thermometer; when you find it, you get addition help, locating the necessary items. At the end of every week, you can buy an upgrade for your shop, making it much attractive. When you complete all rounds in shop mode, you unlock Blitz Mode that challenges you to find all the items within minimum period of time.
Style and atmosphere inside the game:
Little Shop Big City is the amusing seek-and-find game that features stunning graphics, diverse sound effects and pleasant electronic music. All the shops look impressive; scattered objects are colorful and detailed. It should be also mentioned that the items correspond to a shop specialization; it means that the floral shop contains different flowers, pots, watering cans’ etc; the spa and beauty shop – brushes, creams, shampoos, etc. Another game highlight is hints; in the contrast to other games of this genre, hints exchanges name of necessary items for pictures. It is quite helpful, especially for those, who have insufficient knowledge of English, since there are over 1200 different items to find. As for upgrades of your shop, they are decent; you can upgrade entrance, marquee, box office, façade, sign and landscape. All in all, Little Shop Big City is the appealing game that is done on high professional level and contains several interesting innovations. I recommend it to try to all fans of this genre.
