Collect virtual currency to advance, with limits on how much each income generator can hold.
Limits on the currency generators means having to return to the game frequently to collect the currency.
You can link characters in your game with people you are friends with on Facebook. When you use a character that you have linked to a Facebook friend, both receive an award.
Although it doesn't take much time to advance in the game, it is still a significant time investment, and it would be disappointing to lose all of the progress and start again.
This was common while the game was being updated, but isn't a problem anymore since the updates have been officially retired.
When you don't have enough virtual currency to complete a task, you are redirected to the menu where you can buy the virtual currency with real money.
The categories for income generators are different. The ones from the beginning of the game hold much less than the ones later on, meaning you'll have to have much more of them and check in on the game more often to keep up.
There is a poll activity in the game wherein you can answer questions and see other people's responses to them. When you answer these questions, you get a random reward with greatly varying degrees of grandeur.
The virtual currency available to purchase comes in bundles of varying degrees of size with vastly different prices.
The game has limited-time quests that expire a few days after unlocking them. Taking an extended break means losing the chance to partake in the quest.
