Q: How can I save my game online?

1- Log onto the service you want to save your game to before starting this process.
2- Option wheel – Option tab – Transfer button – (the service you want your game to be saved on).

To save your game on Google Play or Game Center, choose ‘yes’ when the game asks you if you want to leave all the access to Game Center or Google Play at the very start, right after you install it. If you didn’t say yes then, you can follow the same path written above for Facebook and choose the proper cloud saving option; Game Center for Apple devices and Google Play for Android.

Game mechanic questions

Q: What are the Subs useful for?

A: To unlock new upgrades in the Knowledge Tree and to get you to the top of the Leaderboard.

Q: Do theme specific items in your room increase your views of videos being published?

A: No, they don’t.

Q: How does streaming work?

A: When you minimize or close the game for one minute, it begins. Streaming doesn’t start if you are publishing videos and will only start once your last video is published.

Q: How do I level up my Tuber?

A: Buy items with views. The more views an item costs, the more XP it’ll give.

Q: How do I get brains?

A: You get brains every time you level up your Tuber or a trend category. You also gain a few brains whenever you complete one of the Grand Quests.

Q: How often do trending categories change?

A: Every day.

Q: How do events work?

A: Events are divided in 3 rounds and are accessible when you are playing online and from the ‘social’ tab, the one with the blue and pink ‘characters’ at the bottom of the screen.
1- Publish: You pay 5 BUX and enter a room in the event. Make sure you follow the theme of the event. When this step is done, you can update the room entered at any time, and for free, by re-entering a room in the event.
2- Vote: During this round, nobody can modify a room entered in the competition. The voting round will slowly remove from the randomly shown rooms the rooms that get ‘passed’ instead of ‘liked’. As this is totally random, you may get to vote for your own room or see the same room more than once. Note that when the voting starts, no more notice shows in your room selection screen which of your room is entered in the voting round. You can now change that room to gear it up for the next event.
3- Ranking: If you finished among the 500 best liked rooms, you will receive a notification. Then, within 24 hours, you will receive the gifts and trophy associated with the rank you got. Congratulations! If you are not within the 500 best liked room, nothing happens.

Q: Does my room in an event change if I change the room after submitting it?

A: No, the room will stay the same until you re-enter the modified room or another room.

Q: Why can’t I crush certain items?

A: You’re not allowed to crush special celebration items since you can’t re-purchase them once the event is over.

Q: How can I remove a daily quest I don’t want to complete?

A: In the quest screen, you can see daily quests have a red ‘X’ in the top right corner. Tap that red mark and face a new challenge!

Q: What is Snappy mode?

A: It’s when you hold your device sideways while being on the game screen. Snappy, a pink octopus-like critter, appears on the right. Click Snappy to take a screenshot of your room.

Q: What are invisible cubes and how do I get them?

A: They are bought using the Pixel Dust you get when crushing items. You can then use them to make thing seem like they float! Invisible cubes will appear completely invisible to anybody visiting your room or whenever you turn your device in Snappy mode.

Q: Can there be more than one Network administrator?

A: No. If a Network administrator passes the administrator powers, he loses them.

Q: I’m the biggest fan of PewDiePie, is there a way I can talk to him?

A: The best way to contact PewDiePie is on social medias. I wish you the best of luck on being noticed!
