How to Move around the game Screen
To move around the game screen place your cursor near the girl and then while holding the left mouse button down drag the cursor to the area you wish for her to walk and when you let go of the left mouse button she will walk there.
NOTE – When in a store look for the pink arrow and click on it to move out of a store and back onto the street.
NOTE – When you want to go into a store simply click on the door and if the store is unlocked for you then your character will walk inside. If the door is locked you must wait until you reach a certain level in the game to unlock it.
How do you Win?
A showdown is what you will initiate between you and another girl in the game.
If you place your cursor on another girl a menu will appear above her head as shown above.
You can either chat with her (Compliments earn you confidence points), check her details to see how confident she is and how likely it is she could beat you in a showdown.
If you want to showdown with that girl click on “Showdown” at the top.
In a few seconds you will see a “-??” which is the number of confidence points that girl has lost in the showdown. Whomever loses the least amount is the winner of the showdown and will earn some money which you must click on when it is on the ground.
Showdowns are an important way to win money and confidence points as well as completing quests. The more outfits in your closet and the more friends in your Clique the more likely you will win these showdowns.
Shopping for Clothing and Accessories
Shopping for clothing and accessories is an important part of the game. The clothing you buy can add to your overall hotness score and help you win showdowns against other girls.
To go inside a store click on the door of the store and your character will walk in.
NOTE – You must reach certain levels before you can go into certain stores. You also can not take a cab or plane until you reach certain levels in the game.
Once you are inside mouse over the different racks and tables of clothing and accessories in the store.
Click on the the rack and you will lose 1 Stamina/energy point for searching. If you find a great item you have the option of trying it on and then purchasing it. If you purchase it you have the option of putting it on right then and there or placing it in your closet.
NOTE – If you see money or coffee cups fall to the ground after finding special items be sure to click on them as these are bonuses for finding special items.
Once you leave a store you may find you can’t get into the next one. This is because you must reach certain levels to go into certain stores.
At the top of the screen toward the center you will see how many hidden items are in the store. If you have enough energy to search for all of them you will eventually find special items which earn you bonuses and you will find special items to wear to parties.
Once you have the right outfit be sure to check your invitations and see if you can attend a party and complete a quest.
Parties, Nightclubs, Casual Events
To become invited to parties, Nightclubs, Casual Events or Black Tie affairs you can read Magazines at the Newsstand on the street once per day or you can read various billboards around the city.
Once you have unlocked an event be sure to note what kind of event it is and then make sure you are dresses appropriately for it. (See Key in image above)
You can also click on your Quests at the upper left side of the screen.
If you are not dresses appropriately you will not win showdowns.
Look near the top of the screen and you will see how much energy you have as well as confidence and place your cursor on other girls to get details about them. If you think you can beat them in a showdown then click on “Showdown” You will be notified right away if you have won or lost. Either way you will lose confidence points and will need to replenish them.
Change your Appearance
If you feel like you aren’t winning enough showdowns try visiting the Salon shown pictured above.
You can tan, change your hairstyle and color as well as make up.
This can increase your hotness score and help you win more showdowns but it will cost money so make sure you have enough.
