|Vegas Towers Transforms 50,000+ Gamers per Day into Las Vegas Developers|

Facing real-time competition and enjoying a broad range of special features, VegasTowers gamers face the challenge of attracting thousands of visitors - and earning lucrative revenues - by building a successful Las Vegas resort from the ground up, and then skilfully managing hundreds of hotels, restaurants, shops and entertainment venues and more. Along the way, gamers need to constantly optimise and refine their development, or risk falling behind.
Special features of this unique iPad city building game include: a stunningly detailed simulation engine that allows gamers to zoom in and find out where visitors are heading and what they're saying; over 80 unique types of buildings to create, such as penthouse suites, casinos, restaurants, nighclubs, rooftop helipads and more; over 100 challenging and fun objectives to complete; in-game chatting with competitors; realistic management functions like monitoring noise control and staff productivity; an array of detailed statistics and reports; and access to a constantly-updated online reference to help gamers optimize their development as they reach for the top.
Designed by SiuYiu Ltd. and available as a free app, VegasTowers is a runaway success with over one million app store downloads since its launch just six months ago - an average of over 5000 downloads per day. Reviews have been equally as impressive, with an average of 4.5 stars (out of 5) from over 7000 gamers. VegasTowers was ranked in the top three free iPad games in the US, and was the top ranked free iPad game in Canada and Hong Kong.
"VegasTowers is a fun and challenging iPad simulation and strategy game," commented SiuYiu Ltd. developers Kathy Fung and Luxiou Chen. "And to keep things constantly energized, we're releasing one update per month. For instance, our most recent release included cooler hotel suites such as the MGM Grand- inspired SkyLoft that is exclusive to the 100th floor, and more ways for players to interact with each other through their friends list and the global rankings."
