How do you upgrade the managers?

Hi! I started playing this game yesterday and I am really enjoying it. But, I am a bit confused as to how th managers get leveled
up? Do I just keep hiring them or keep hiring hoping the same exact person shows up? 🤷🏻‍♀️

Good game! But...

I love this game so much and I enjoy playing it when I’m bored! I highly recommend this game for anyone who likes to customize!
The one thing I dislike about the game is that the customization is limited because you can’t put things were you want,
everything has to be in the same place. But other th

Almost a two thumbs up

I’d give this a good score overall. I play this often even but, it’s also not without a few things that I don’t like. First
off is the progression system. Theaters have to be upgraded fully before you can advance to the next, I wish it didn’t do that.
The other thing is some of my saved progress see

It’s an review

Even though this is only a review for this game.
I would like to say that the controls are very easy to use and the game is very fun to play. The graphics is a little bit boxy for
my taste when it comes to the people!
But overall it is a great game app!

Add a night mode!

I think we all can agree that most of us go to the movies during the night. Please add a night mode so the lights outside the
theater can pop out more and overall give it more of a feel! Other than that great game.

Best Game Ever!!!

I hardly ever leave reviews unless something is just complete terrible. This is by far one of the best games I have ever played
and sure does blow all the other IDLE games out of the water!

This game is amazing

Everyone should have this downloaded on your phone. This isn’t like the other mobiles games. It doesn’t spew ads at you for
money. It’s unique and it actually really fun. I hope my review helped you.

I rate this a five star because...

When I first started this game I was like oh no I can already tell I’m not going to like it and then I got to play it more and
it is amazing. I don’t like how you don’t get a lot of money though and you have to wait for it but other than that it is a
great game

Love the game but so many bugs

Love this game so much but since the movie update there’s a lot of bugs and when I enter the game it glitches me out and if this
is not fixed it will not go good for my star rating.

I’ve really been enjoying this game, but since it updated today the game crashes while loading. Shame I’m missing out on the
Halloween event :( Otherwise a great game, it’s simple and doesn’t require watching too many ads. I look forward to the next

Assistants disappear

Most of the assistants disappear after being bought. Say I need a assistant for a large theatre, when I buy them and finally get
the one I need I try and assign them to that spot they are not anywhere to be found

I downloaded 3 idle tycoons at once and tried them all. This is the one that remains downloaded. This game allows you to make in
game money quickly and easily. You occasionally have to watch an ad , but you will be rewarded for doing so. A little guy will
walk In and offer you in game money , as lon

'The one thing'

'The one issue I have with this game is that some upgrades will say -5.00 seconds off the total time I takes for your guests to
use a facility. But upon upgrading it, it only takes of a second or sometimes less... this needs to be fixed.'

'Ad Watching Tycoon'

'It’s a fun game but the developer went too hard in on the ads. The boost only gives you 10 minutes, which is insane as most
other idle games offer you 2 hours of more. That said, this game does seem to “move” faster than most other idle games. I’m
enjoying it quite a bit so far. 4 stars. Co

'So I don’t understand why spend $14 on offline assistance just for it to not be used when you open other theatres that’s a

have $3000 but still it’s fun and I totall

Really fun but glitchy

The video ads almost never work that allow you to double your coins or earn other perks. It freezes like 90% of the time and
causes you to reboot the app. I wouldn’t want to spend a dime on a game that glitches so easily because you’re risking losing
your money. It’s otherwise a really fun game to p

Ads don’t work.

Ok, I just got this game and I love it, but when
I need extra money, I need to watch an ad for the investor. But I can’t because the ads are fake. I would like real ads to help
me with my tycoon. Thank you for reading this.
