- "On the one hand, Tiny Tower is like so many countless iPhone games before it. Lure you in with a free game, then charge you real money as you tap, tap tap away at a menial and pointless task."
The review starts with the game's graphics. If you'd ask a person to review some screenshots of Tiny Tower, without that person actually playing the game will probably only result in negative responses. But as soon as you start the game, you'll be blown away by the "freaking amazing" graphics that are "very adorable" and will "put a smile on your face". Then again, the game has 4 1/2 stars in the iTunes store, which is far above average.
A second point Kotaku praises is the great balance between the free-to-play and paid functions. Like most, if not all free iPhone games Tiny Tower too has paid functions that will speed up building or add new items. However, these functions do not stop you from playing the game normally, and all of these functions are competely optional. Much like the hats in Team Fortres 2; they make you look awesome but are completely optional
