You could spend money on
- Purchasing food, healthy food is expensive and it gives a heart, trash food is cheap and it eats a heart.
- At some level, the OS will install a new application, where you could buy some items (not for you). To buy an item, you need an address. You could use it to "feed" the monkeys.
- A neighbor will ask you money. You are not obliged to spend money.
- The landlady will visit you every three days, and it will cost $90.
- Each new camera costs $50
- You could buy two add-ins for the cameras.
|New camera||50||Obtain a new camera. Some cameras are useless.|
|Rent||90||Every 3 days.|
|Pizza||18||+22 food, -1 heart. Factor money food:1.2 (higher is better)|
|Hotdog||6||+12 food, -2 hearts. Factor money food: 2|
|Chinese Food||14||+22 food, -2 hearts. Factor money food: 1.57|
|Fruit||6||+2 food +2 hearts.|
|Yogurt||4||+2 food +1 heart.|
|Coffee||6||+2 food -2 hearts +10 sleep.|
After a couple runs you will get familiar with the keywords and routines of the monkeys, so it is a good idea to take the three jobs on the first day and maybe the second and third, since it will let you buy cameras quickly.
You should take advantage of food sales, especially on fruit and yogurt. Once you get one fill your fridge with them so you can get fast food in case you need a lot of hunger points and always have a health source available.
There are some cameras that need a certain amount of days to be completed (such as the spaceship or the recording studio) so saving before you level up and then bulk buy all the cameras available is a good strategy (not for beginners, just enjoy the chaos the first runs ;))
You will feel dizzy and eventually faint if you lack sleep, possibly missing important moments, so make sure to have some coffee around and nap every time you have some time even if it is just an hour or two.
After a couple runs you will likely not struggle with money and food/sleep/health.
