Let’s get started with our Cyber Dude: Dev Tycoon cheats, tips and tricks strategy guide to get rich quick!
Upgrade your computer’s specs!
Your computer is the gateway to the work world, and it must be upgraded a often in order to keep up with the demand. There are five possible upgrades for you computer, all of which are pretty important.
- Processor increases your work value, making your taps generate more money. If you play actively and tap a lot, be sure to invest a lot into this upgrade.
- Memory increases the amount of money you generate while idle.
- Graphics increases the maximum amount of money you can generate while away from the game. The more graphics you have, the longer you can be away from the game without having to worry about hitting the cap.
- Storage increases package value, and we are actually unclear as to what this does. From the wording it sounds like it increases the value of the roomba cash and the drone prizes, but it does not seem to do that.
- Internet makes your idle profits generate faster.
If you are playing the game actively, you will want to buy a lot of upgrades for your Processor. If you are going to idle a lot, grab the other upgrades.
Buy a new computer!
If you keep upgrading your computer’s specs, eventually you will hit a maximum level and you will need to upgrade entire rig before you can upgrade anymore. When you a buy a new computer, you will gain access to a higher tier of upgrades so you can make your computer extra powerful!
Whenever you buy a new computer for the first time, you will earn a star which permanent increases your profits, which we will explain in further later.
Work towards your missions!
If you tap on the green check mark at the top right corner of the screen, you will be taken to the missions screen. Here, you can complete specific objectives and you will be rewarded with coins, the premium currency of the game.
Not only are coins valuable, but missions are a great way to keep track of your progress. If you are ever unsure of what to work towards next, just take a look at your mission and do that first.
Move into a new place as soon as you can!
Once you have earned enough cash, you can move into the a new house. Each house provides you with a passive income buff, so you want to move into new houses as soon as you are able to. There is no reason to hold off and stay in your current house!
Cash in your earnings and earn some experience!
If you tap on the star icon in the menu, you will be taken to the experience menu. Experience in this game is treated like “prestige” points – that is to say, the farther you progress, the more experience you will be able to collect. You can see how much experience you will get before you commit.
When you collect your experience points, you will LOSE ALL of your cash, homes, and computer upgrades, but you will KEEP ALL skills, items, and coins. Your experience is then added to the permanent pool which increases your total earnings in this formula: Stars X Exp = % Earning Bonus.
This means that the more stars you have, the bigger your experience will be reflected in your earning bonus. As we mentioned before, you earn a star every time you buy a whole new computer for the first time.
It is up to you ultimately when you want to cash in your earnings to collect some experience, but just make sure not to do it too early so that you get hardly any experience.
Learn some new skills!
If you go into your upgrades and tap on the book icon, you will be take to your skills. Skills are where you can learn new programming languages, and each one will grant you a permanent bonuses to one of your computer upgrades. There are even some skills that grant you unique bonuses.
To learn a new skill, you must have the required amount of experience, then you simply queue it up to start studying it. Once the allotted time expires, you will learn the skill and the bonuses will apply. Remember that skills are permanent and are not lost upon collecting experience!
Watch for the drone and roomba!
If you leave the game open with sound on, you may occasionally hear a loud whirring noise. This signifies the appearance of either the drone or roomba, both of which have goodies that need to be collected by you.
The drone will carry boxes in for you and they will either be purple or yellow. Purple boxes are very important as they contain items for you to that provide boosts, while the yellow boxes contain up to 12 coins in them. Before you can open the yellow boxes, you must watch an advertisement, and you have to wait a little bit to open purple boxes.
The roomba will slide across the floor and if you tap on it, you will collect some free cash. It is not that much but every little bit helps, right?
Equip your items!
Once you open a purple box, you will get some items that have to be equipped for their effects to activate. There are four types of items: chairs, lamps, headphones, and glasses, each improving a certain part of your upgrades.
- Chairs get you free money every second.
- Lamps get you experience points every minute.
- Headphones earn you gold coins every 30 minutes.
- Glasses earn you free money every second.
In addition to the types, item can come in one of the four rarities: common (green), rare (blue), epic (purple), and legendary (yellow). The higher rarity items have better effects, but do not fear if you do not get any. If you receive duplicates of the same item, you can upgrade it to improve its effects.
Spin the wheel for a chance at prizes!
The prize wheel can be located in the shop, and you can spin it by watching a short advertisement. You may receive a 2x or 3x multiplier, which multiplies all of your earnings by that multiplier for a little while. This speeds up your progress exponentially, so we recommend having one active at all times.
You can also land on the jackpot space, which awards you with gold coins. Every time you spin the wheel and do not land on the jackpot, it will increase. Keep spinning for a big prize pool!
Save up gold coins to become self-employed!
If you save up 200 gold coins, you can be come self-employed. What this means is that you run your own web page and web site, which grants you passive cash over time. Even better is that you will start to earn gold coins every few hours as well, making this a great investment.
And with that, you should be able to get rich in no time! If you have any other tips or tricks to share, let us know in the comments below!
