You can change your outfit and redo your makeup and hair whenever you'd like in Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. If you're changing into something you already own, it'll cost you nothing. Not only that, but changing outfits regularly gets you noticed and you'll accrue points more often. So whenever you go on a new job or start a new quest, change outfits first! Just be sure you don't wear the same thing for too long or people may start talking.

2. Watch video offers for free stars and cash

You can use the phone menu to call contacts and connections while you're on jobs. If you bring someone along with you, you'll earn more stars and level up faster. The more prominent of a figure that shows up with you, the more you'll earn.

4. Start a long task right before you finish playing

If you decide to work a full or half shift at work, don't waste your energy on finishing the task quickly. Instead, start these kinds of tasks before you close the game and go with shorter tasks while you're playing that don't require as much energy. This lets you explore more without having to pay real money or trade in stars for energy.

5. If you buy anything, buy stars

Cash is pretty easy to come by during game play and can be racked up fast. Your energy meter will also add one bolt every 5 minutes. If you're going to spend money on anything, spend it on stars. This way if you absolutely need more energy, you've got stars to trade for them. There are also a lot of items you'll want or need that you can't buy with cash.

6. Don't use stars to buy clothes

Kim Kardashian: Hollywood: Top 8 tips, hints, and cheats you need to know!

One of the few things you don't want to use your stars on is clothes. As you level up, you'll unlock lots of items that are tempting but you really don't need them. Wait until you're at a point in the game where you can really afford it without having to skimp elsewhere. Save the stars to go on dates and network. People may make comments if you wear the same things but they'll still hang out with you, and that's what matters.

If you're going to buy clothes, aim for cash buys, not star exchanges.

7. Gifts get you to the A list faster

If you want to climb your way to the A list faster, there's no better way to get to that inner circle than showering the people in it with gifts. Use the phone section of the game in order to find out what people are already popular and give them gifts. They'll like you more and in time, you'll build a relationship that'll pay off in the long run.

8. Date lots of people, but don't get dumped

Kim Kardashian: Hollywood: Top 8 tips, hints, and cheats you need to know!

There's no rules when it comes to dating. Date as many people as you want and you'll climb to the top of the A list even faster. But don't get dumped by someone as it could negatively hurt your popularity. Instead, you don't even actually have to pay for a date. Just call someone up to meet you but don't actually go on the date. Basically, bring them to the place but don't tap on their conversation bubble. This will keep them interested enough to stick around.

  • Sorry young lady but the top tip is to never install it EVER! LOL ;) I can't help it. I can't even type the K word without cringing. I know that there are those that will play this game and enjoy it but.......
  • I died a little inside writing it. Not gonna lie.
  • You'll need to go wash yourself 7 times in the River Jordan to receive healing and forgiveness. Then tell Rene you NEVER want to feel that dirty ever again.
  • God help us all Posted via iMore App
  • I installed it 2 days ago to impress my crush, and I was hooked in 10 minutes. I became number one in the world yesterday night. Alias- Jack Harkness (probably would have fallen down the list a little bit by now...) #FML
  • This kind of stuff will be the downfall of humanity. It's deeply depressing.
  • A few weeks ago imore posted something about how this game was amazing, and naturally a bunch of us including myself raged somewhat on them in the comments unfortunately with no success. So I look at it like this; as long as this trash pays for the podcasts to remain free and to keep the site running as well as it does, I'm ok with it. I understand that this has no business being here and the only reason they posted this garbage is because they got paid a fortune to do it. I mean even Mark "Mr HBO" Walhberg did a transformers movie. But as long as the podcasts stay excellent and the content remains top notch, it's all good in the hood yo. Lol
  • I don't think anyone here said this game was amazing. The opposite actually:
  • So if it's bad why are you reviewing it again and in-depth?
  • I can proudly say that I have NEVER watched even one second of the Kardashians or the other fame-whore ilk that saturate the airwaves. Nor will I. Nor will I support them in any way such as buying a game. As someone else said, "God help us all."
  • Hopefully: No "Real Housewives" of New Jersey or whatever app.
  • Tip 1: Hold the icon until it giggles and then hit the little x in the top right.
    Tip 2: No further tips necessary. :-)
  • Im not sure what you mean I am a new user.
  • What icon
  • The app icon on the home screen. Aka delete it!
  • Please stop talking about apps that make society dumber as a whole.
  • Are you kidding me? Anybody that does anything to support those people in any way shape or form, are either 12 years old, or have the intellect of a 2 year old. And they keep getting away with it! Its amazing people protest against the top 1 or 2%, and not recognize these people are in that percentage, and are taking advantage of you.
  • Again... Stop making stupid people famous !!!! If you use such a bullshit you can realize that your iq goes down from minute to minute. Sent from the iMore App
  • And with this garbage post, I am no longer visiting this site. Ally, it's not your fault. I blame the editor in chief.
  • Hey! I just have a quick tip when someone tries to break up with you, simply exit out of the game and make sure you go on a date fast enough if you don't want to spend any stars on charming them. You have to go on a date asap, because they will call again, also make sure you stay inside the place where the date is occurring. I know people get annoyed with that so just wanted to let you know if you haven't already tried it !
  • Thank you :)
  • You all are the angriest people I've seen in so long. Shut the fuck up. Chill the fuck out. Yes the world is stupid and it's not just stupid the list goes on and on!! But you all are raging about Kim fucking kardashian. Leave this author the fuck alone lmao, what the hell is wrong with you assholes? I literally signed up for Imore just so I could say something nice to this author about this game and how much I appreciate the fact that this page existed. You fucking idiots haha. You all think you have the advantage against this woman because you're an army of disgusting assholes. If you're all so concerned with the world and how much it's going to shit. Don't fucking treat someone that way for no reason. You're just as disgusting as you're claiming Kim k is. Fucking wow I've never been so appalled. Go do something nice for humanity instead of bashing people with such hurtful words. I sound like such a peace twat right now but seriously you guys are fucking stupid. I haven't seen like one nice comment on here. And that has something to do with what's wrong with the world as well. Fucking idiots.
  • Thank you Allyson!! For taking so much time out of your life to make this page. I appreciate it (:
