Glam Fever Fizzle

I got bored playing Glam Fever. I reached a point where I had to either buy diamonds or just log in to get one diamond a day and it would probably take the rest of my life to reach a new level. So I just stopped.

I am done. I hope everyone has fun playing up to a certain point and gets the cool things for their stardoll suites. I still enjoy my bouquet of pink roses. I think that was my favorite gift from the game. 

Is anyone else as disenchanted as I am? It would be interesting to have your feedback.

Glam Fever Glitches

It is frustrating to have glitches in a game. I have communicated with many dolls who are annoyed that they have earned items but they cannot get them to send to their Stardoll suite. 

Tip: Do not take the offer to send the item to your suite at the time you earn it. If the app crashes at this time, you may have to earn it all over again! Instead, just close the pop-up window, finish the game and go to the city. Touch the gift and try sending from the Rewards page. I had to do this several times to finally get the Broadway sign. 

I finally earned the Teddy Bear gift (accepting 10 dates from Admirers on the 3rd floor.) and again it will not send to my suite. Instead the app crashes. This one took a long time to earn because the admirers seem to take days to ask for a date. I want to earn the roses and expect it will take some time because will have to wait for the admirers from the fourth floor to ask me on a date.

None of my facebook friends seem to be playing glam fever. So I am not using the feature for facebook friends and don't know how well that works.

The app is directly associated with Stardoll, so you can send your feedback and requests for help directly to Stardoll Staff and they will forward it to the design team and help you. Just be clear about what problems you are experiencing.

I could not get the dog on a stretcher to send to my Stardoll suite after earning it. I contacted Audrey at Glam Fever on Facebook and she helped me with that.

Glam Fever Admirers

Each of your admirers shows on his tag a potential bonus. You must go on dates with each admirer to get a total of 20 points in order to activate the bonus. If you break up with the admirer, you lose the bonus. 

Make sure to get only 1st floor admirers until you earn all the stuff you can with them. Break up with 3 to get a diamond. The next goal is to have 5 first floor admirers. Go on dates and get 20 points to earn the bonus shown. You can pay for dates, or wait for him to ask you. 

I broke the heart of one of my admirers. I was on a date and ran out of fever. (This was my fault, I should have waited until my fever was completely full.) Instead of buying more, I tried to just exit the date. A screen came up and asked me if I wanted to Ditch my Date! I did. Then I saw that he had a broken red heart on his tag. and a 1/3. Poor guy. I'm a heartbreaker. My guess is that I get three chances and then he probably will break up with me. 

After buying all my Equipment, Studies and Uniforms, I bought extra admirer slots. The bonuses they give can be really valuable. Admirers on the each floor offer better bonuses than the previous floor admirers. Bonuses include earning extra coins while “working”, less fever reduction, faster fever refill, expanded fever capacity and additional glam.

You can earn diamonds and more if you manage your admirers well. 

Check under the gift icon on the bottom left corner and see what your current goal is with your admirers. I have already broken up with all my 1st, 2nd and 3rd floor admirers. I purchased more slots and currently I have 8 4th floor admirers.

I earned great bonuses with my 3rd floor admirers. One gave me 15% faster fever refill. Another gave me additional +60 fever so I have more fever to work with when I play. (300 vrs 240) When I broke up with him I lost this bonus. 

When you get a new admirer, read his tag and decide if the bonus is something you will use. While I was working on finishing my career at the Zoo, I had an admirer whose bonus was 30% less fever consumption in Animal Care. I broke up with him once I finished that career.

Glam Fever Navigation

When you open Glam Fever you will be in a beautifully designed small city. Navigation is easy and intuitive. I swipe across my ipad to speed from one part of the city to another. The city is lovely in the daytime but I like it best at night, when a beautiful full moon hangs in the sky over the Love Fountain. There is one storefront that says "Coming Soon" and a newsstand that has no news. (yet)

Take a little time to play with going around the city and checking out all the places you can go. You may want to decide which career you wish to pursue first and then shop for the uniforms, studies and equipment you may need. Glam Galleries is a mall with several shops to purchase items to dress your doll. It is like another mini-city, and you will swipe your screen to view all the storefronts. The Bellisima Beauty Salon is the place to change your look. Go Home to dress your doll.

Touch the top of the screen where it says "Fever" to get details on your current overall game status. This will open up a daisy-like graphic display of your Glam, Fever, Admirers, Uniforms, Equipment, Studies and clothing. It will tell you how long it will take until your fever is recharged. Touch the top again to make the daisy retract. 

Touch the coin or the diamond at the top of the screen for a short cut to the Bank. This bank doesn't hold your money, it sells currency. You can buy both coins and diamonds here, or touch the tab marked "free" for more ways to earn coins.

While you are in the city there will be a small gift box on the bottom left of the screen. Touch it to open the Rewards window. This has two tabs. One for diamonds and one for gifts. This will help you see how few diamonds are earned by doing things. Use the gift tab to see what cool items you can earn and send to your Stardoll suite. Once you earn a gift, it will be marked with a gold checkmark. Touch the item and you will be given a window with a button to send the item to your suite.  

Glam Fever Shopping

Tip: Use coins to shop. 

Shops become available to you as you rise in levels. You can "look but not touch" the items that are not available to you.

Glam value is assigned to all garments, so to have the highest glam, you must dress your doll in your most recently acquired and expensive garments. Some of these outfits are not even harmonious! Whoever designed this part does not understand the art of dressing well. This game seems to be made by someone who assigns fashion a number value. There is nothing that encourages creativity. 

There is a shop for tops and bottoms and one for dresses. The game will allow you to wear one top and one bottom or one dress. There is no option for layering.

You get a few diamonds as a bonus for buying 50 clothing items. Later you can get a few more diamonds by buying 100 more clothing items. If you want to earn this, it will cost you a lot of coins, but buying those clothing items also increases your total glam and will help you level up. 

Tip: When you level up when shopping, your fever instantly is recharged. Go shopping when your fever is low.

However, you will find that you will not use most of these items. Your doll must be dressed in the highest glam outfits, so having the other clothing seems useless. If you get to the point (as I have) that you have bought everything you can for coins, you may find this frustrating. I hope they change this soon.
