How do you play Bitlife?

iOS and iPadOS Gaming

Hi guys. I just installed Bitlife and I can’t figure out what to do. I started a new life and it says I am an infant. I see no options other than to become a biticen. I thought I had to purchase the app so I did. Was this necessary? The app was expensive.

Any advice would be great.

There should be an age button, if you press it, it doesn't really seem like anything's happening but you're aging up and you can see things that are happening in the journal.

I just figured it out. Thank you so much for your help! I am playing now and this is great. It’s nice to have a game like this.

You can also do activities by clicking the activities button. Some stuff gets unlocked when you’re 12 but everything else gets unlocked when you’re 18. The school/job tab, is where you can interact with your classmates, faculty, go to the nurse, school activities, etc. When you get a job, it becomes the job button. This is where you can go and get a full-time job, a part-time, do side jobs for quick cash, and you can also use the job recruiter, this helps you find a job. And if you have a job, this is where you go to interact with your coworkers, HR, retire, etc.
The relationships tab is where you have your parents, siblings, if you have any, lovers, exes, friends, pets, kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews, etc. And to interact with them, you just click on their name and a list of options should pop up.
Last but not lease, there is assets. This is where you go to buy houses and cars. This is also where you can view your houses and cars if you have any. Heirlooms also appear in this tab. You get a new heirloom every day when you open the app for the first time.
Also if I can ask, what do you mean you paid for the app? Like did you get a bitizenship? just curious since you said you bought the app.

Thanks so much for all your help. I got the Bitizenship because I thought I had to in order to play. I have no idea what it is. If I don’t need it I want to cancel it.

actually, this bitizenship gets rid of all ads in the game and lets you access premium features. This includes pets such as dog breeders, cat breeders, the exotic pet dealer, and the horse ranch. It also allows you to have more than three pets. Interacting with your teachers/supervisors are also part of the premium features. And with every new update, new premium features get added. Speaking of new update, they released a new one today. Listing all the premium features will take too long LOL. But those are some that I remember. But if you don’t want it, I’m sure you could ask for a refund. It’s a one time purchase, not a subscription.

I liked the game, but the only thing I disliked about it it's when you get more and more text, you can't disapear the previows text. For me, I need to read all from age 0 to the last message, and I can swipe but it's sometimes dificult to keep trak of the point on the journal

So am I right in that is an accessible life simulation game?
okay, so, is it real time or not?

You don't need to read from age 0 in the jernal. If you updated to the latest ios it is way much easier to read the jernal from what ever age you need to.

Yes bitlife is accessible. And no it’s not in real time. You just press the age button to age a year. Then you do what you want and when you run out of things to do, then you push the ageButton again to Advance to the next year. You do this until your character dies.

Thanks for explaining the premium features. The game is awesome!

I try to swipe past the journal. It does get in the way sometimes but I think a lot of the menus are above it if memory serves correct. I’m still learning. :)
