A million players have already downloaded it, and if you are one of the new players who have just joined the game, this post is for you. In this post, we will share with you the Idle Barber Shop Tycoon beginner’s guide. Make sure to note down all the tips and tricks we tell you, and you are good to go.
1 The right way to play
Most idle games try to keep you online, forcing you to tap on the screen to generate some extra money, but that is not the case with Idle Barber Shop Tycoon. Codigames loves making sweat and simple casual games, and this is what they have done with this game. It is important to note that Idle Barber Shop Tycoon is more of a story progression-based game, where you should aim to complete the story as soon as possible.
In Idle Barber Shop Tycoon, if you want to proceed faster, then it’s not about continues playing. It’s about coming back to the game after every 6 hours. Even if you are offline, your idle shop will generate both reputation and income for 6 hours. So your aim should be to log back into the game every 6 hours. This is also perfect as every time you log back in, you will complete a chapter of the story, and you can then continue with the next chapter.
Use the upgrade button to find out upgradable items
In Idle Barber Shop Tycoon, there are two types of items – decoration items that are merely for decoration and have no other use. The other type is upgradable items, which helps you generate more money and reputation.
As you progress in the game, your shop will be filled with so many items that it becomes tough to keep track of all the upgradeable items. This is why the game comes with an ‘Upgrade Button.’ By clicking this button, a blue marker will be placed on all the upgradable items. Use this button; it will make your gameplay a lot more smooth.
3 What to upgrade next?
This is the toughest part of the game, and if you get the hang of it, you proceed really quickly in the game. So talking of upgradable items, there are two types of items, one which increases your rate of reputation point and others which increase the money generation. So the question is what to upgrade and when to upgrade?
The simplest method to find out what to upgrade next is to by simply judging what is lacking. Every time you log back into the game after 5-6 hours, if you don’t have enough money to upgrade items, it’s quite obvious that you should upgrade items like chairs or haircuts to generate more money. And if you don’t have enough reputation points for your next chapter, you should be upgrading items that provide you reputations like Hot tower stand, Waiting area, etc.
4 Green Button is upgradable too
Most players don’t know that the speed-up button or that big green button in the center of the screen has great use. You can use it to speed up the activity in the shop. One thing to note is that it won’t speed up the activities on the reception desk, so use it accordingly.
There is one very unique item in the game, and it’s ‘Coffee machine.’ It is the only item that does not increase your money or reputation; instead upgrades your speed-up button. If you are one of the players who spend quite some time on the game, this is a must upgrade item for you, but if you are lazy like me, who don’t like tapping on the screen and rather just sit back and relax, you can ignore it completely.
5 Get more staff!
As soon as you have 100 Diamonds, just go to the shop and get one new staff member. Do it even if you don’t have chairs or don’t need staff in your shop because staff members are upgradable too. If you end up getting a staff from the shop you already have, you will get a ‘heart’ that can then be used to upgrade your character, giving him an insane boost.
6 Understand types of haircuts
All the haircuts and beard trims have been categorized into three sections in the game – basic, advanced, and elaborate (represented as bronze, silver, and gold, respectively). Ensure to upgrade your chairs and other items depending on what all haircuts and beard trim options you have. For example, you have only mastered basic haircuts and beard trims; then it makes no sense to upgrade items they are providing a bonus to advanced haircuts, right?
7 Other quick tips
- Try to grab ad offers; watching ads can sometimes give you a lot of free cash and reputation boosts, more clients, etc.
- Make sure to upgrade and master haircuts and beard trim for an income and time boost.
- If your staff is mostly idle, then launch an advertising campaign to get more clients.
- Use the green button, don’t ignore it.
