    Good game, the later levels are actually a bit challenging. I had to try some different strategies to beat the game.

    Some hints to help you if you are stuck:

    The best things to build are boutiques, pet stores, jewelry shops, computer stores and supermarkets. Toy stores don't make much money, people stay in restaurants way too long, and the night club seemed to be bugged (only took 4 people at once). If you need some diversity on top of the 4 good stores, the toy store is the best back-up due to the fact that it is cheaper and can thus be upgraded more quickly.

    I was putting up benches, ice cream stands, and newspaper stands early in the beginning levels, but in the later levels I had to stop so that I could use my starting money to get more stores up faster. Once I had a lot of money I put some ice cream stands and newspaper stands in for a bit of extra cash, but stopped using benches. I didn't use the boom boxes at all, they seemed pretty worthless.

    Using different versions of each store is key. On the last 2 levels I relied on having level 1, 2, and 3 versions of boutiques and pet stores, as well as level 1 and 2 or 2 and 3 versions of jewelry stores, computer stores and, in the last level, toy stores as well. I never upgraded my super markets, I just bought 1 or 2 of them and left them at level 1. There might be a better strategy than this but I could not get past about 88% in the next-to-last level using any of my other methods. I ended up cutting it very close on the last level (Only won by less than 1%), but I did get it on the first try.

    It's also very important to put up a fire department and a police station about 1/3 of the way through a level (at least in the last 3 or 4 levels) or you will lose a lot of money to thieves and expensive stores to fires.

    Good luck!

    SOB. I am retiring from my 360 until I can beat the second level of this game. No H3, no FC2, nothing until I can get to the third level of Shopping city. (Let the Halo flaming commence!)
