Having a hard time completing Dress Shop Hop? We’re not surprised – it’s one of the toughest time management games out there! Hopefully our tips & tricks will help make the game a little easier.
In Dress Shop Hop you meet your goals by earning the amount shown on the top of the page.That money does not help you upgrade your equipment, the tips you earn will be what is used for upgrades.
The tips are small spools of thread that will roll on the floor when a customer gives you a tip. Once the thread has stopped moving, click on it to collect the tip.
In order to earn tips you must serve customers fast and you have to make sure that they have at least 3 or more hearts for you to collect your tip.
In most time management games, the main character can carry two items at a time, not so in this game. Bobbi is only able to carry one item at a time and so it’s very hard to get a good chain going.
Sometimes you have to wait until 3 customers show up before you start placing them on the analyzers. This will help you make the best choices since you will be able to place the least patient customers first. You want to take care of them first since they will not be very patient in line.
If you want to beat this game, I would suggest upgrading your machines as soon as you’re able to afford it. In order to make the most money you will need to serve the customers fast and get as many people through the door as possible. The more people you can get through the door before the clock stops the more money you will earn.
To those who are used to time management games in general, will not like the fact that you cannot queue things several steps ahead.You cannot have the machine automatically start making the next color fabric that you need. You have to wait for the machine to finish whatever it is doing and then click on the next color to start it.
You will get small chaining bonuses when you cash several people out in a row. Make and deliver all the outfits and once they have the dollar bill sign on their analyzer, cash all of them out one after another.
Color matching is one of the best strategies to win this game. It is better to lose some customers than to break your color bonuses. If you’re not able to beat some levels, stick to color matching instead of trying to serve every single customer. A good example of this is in the 2nd shop, 3rd level in which you have a lot of people coming through. If you were to serve everybody that came in you would lose a big chunk of your color chaining bonuses.
I always tried to place a different color on each analyzer so I could maximize my color chains as much as possible. It’s OK to have an empty space once in a while on the analyzer, just make sure to keep matching colors and eventually somebody else will come along that can go on the empty spot.
For every match you make on the same analyzer your times will be multiplied by ten. For example if you’ve made 9 matches on an analyzer, you will receive 90 extra points for matching colors so many times in a row.
You will also need to buy power-ups such as beverages to keep the customers happy. The happier they are the bigger the tip will be. Beverages give your customers hearts a good boost, give them something to drink while they are waiting and they will be calmer longer.
You can also give them beverages after you’ve handed the client their purchases but before you cash them out. Giving them a drink before you cash them out will boost their heart rate by one extra heart per drink. This is a great way to make a last minute tip.
Placing the client on the analyzer automatically adds one heart to them. This will come in handy when people are in line and they only have one heart left, this short boost will allow you to hopefully get them a drink or give you a chance to serve them quickly.
You cannot pick up the beverages when your hands are full, so make sure that your hands are empty before attempting to pick up any drinks.However,you will be able to cash somebody out even if your hands are full so multi task by cashing people out on your way to do something else.
When you have served all your bottles except one and you have angry people in line, make sure to serve the last bottle even if it’s not needed. That will give a chance for the beverages to refill themselves so you can have a fresh supply for your next set of customers.
Mannequins are a great way to boost your income since people will pay twice as much for an outfit that is on display. Before you serve any clients, make up an outfit and place it the mannequin. Certain types of customers will come in and want to buy whatever is hanging.
Put an expensive item on the mannequin, like a patterned dress, so that more people will buy that item and you’ll get more cash.
Make things in advance so you can save time when things get hectic as the level nears to an end. Prepare 2 or 3 extra pices of cloth so you can make outfits faster as the customers request it. You can also prepare certain outfits that are on the mannequin since you know certain people like the movie star and the overweight lady are going to definitely buy it.
Buying the accessory machine early on in the game is a good way to earn some extra money so you can meet your goal. Make sure to pay attention to the people that request certain items because you have a limited amount of time in which to give it to them.
If you don’t get accessories to the clients in time you will have to throw the item away and it will cost you money. Let’s suppose you made a belt for someone but you did not get to deliver it to them on time and nobody else wants it. If you had delivered it in time you would have earned $50 but since you did not $50 will be taken away from your total.
It seems that in some levels no matter what you do, you cannot meet your goal. If you’re not meeting your basic goals, you will need to replay some of your previous levels in order to win extra tip money that will help you upgrade your equipment.
Click on the pause button at the bottom of the page and then click on ‘world map’ there you will see all 5 shops. Pick a level that you would like to replay and try to beat that level again. Once you’ve beat it, upgrade your equipment as much as possible, go back to the level that was giving you problems and see if you can beat it once you have better upgrades.
You will not lose points if somebody walks out in anger, except for when the fashion designer, Marco Down, (the African-American male ) storms out. He will cost you 100 points each time he leaves, and as hard as it is to earn points in this game that is the last thing you will want.
Knowing your clients’ habits will help you in the game. If you know the fashion designer will make you lose points if he leaves, then make sure to take care him first. He makes decisions quickly and you can get him out the door quite quickly.
Mary (the overweight lady) always buys whatever item is on the mannequin and will pay twice what is costs at check out time. So when you see her at the beginning of a level make sure to dress the mannequin in something special. She also loves to buy accessories so make sure to look and see if she wants to buy any extra items.
Even though you can put both a top and a bottom on the mannequin, it’s better to only put one garment on it (i.e. pants OR a shirt, or a dress). That way, when Mary shows up you’ll know exactly what she wants and can start making it early before she requests it. (However, if there are both pants and shirt on the mannequin she might choose either one so you’ll have to wait until she decides.)
Norman, the Caucasian male in the suit always takes a lot of time to make up his mind once he’s on the analyzer. He is also very patient while standing in line so it’s OK to make him wait a little while, while you take care of the most impatient people first.
Maggie, the blue haired lady will always order whatever you put on the rack. Make the same 2 outfits and place one on the rack and the other one on the mannequin. That way you will be guaranteed that Maggie will order whatever is on the mannequin and you will also earn twice as much money since people always pay double for whatever is on the mannequin. You can also make a third ensemble and place it on the rack, use it when things get hectic but remember to leave one copy on the rack at all times.
Take a piece of fabric and click it onto a finished piece of clothing that is till on the machine. Click it onto on the machine, the pieces will automatically swap places and the machine will start stitching your fabric.
Things can get hectic in this game since you have to work fast to meet your goals so it’s a good idea to step away from the game for a minute or two. so you can refocus. If you find yourself getting frustrated while playing the game, pause it and return once you’ve had a chance to compose yourself. Since you paused it and did not exit the game, you continue exactly where you left off and your level of anxiety will be lower.
When you have multiple tasks to complete, do the things that are closest to you first so you can keep Bobbi from walking too far thus taking too long to get from place to place.
