Today I will be bringing to you an Idle Bus 3D Review.
I thought I would make time to do one after seeing so much promotion of the game, which is soon to be fully launched.
But even though they are in pre-launch, there are claims that they pay users as much as $680.
That is precisely what the ads for Idle Bus are showing, and considering you are just building bus lines, that amount does seem a little high.
Now you may have seen the same adverts as me and thought or even installed the game.
However, although you have started playing the game, your wondering whether or not, in the end, Idle Bus 3D will payout.
So if this is you, then this review will be useful to you, as I will answering the question of whether they pay and whether you can get paid three figures managing buses.
Idle Bus 3D Review Summary
- Owner: Extra-Life Entertainment
- What Are They?: Idle Game
- Cost: Free
- Verdict: Unknown
- Recommended: No
What Is Idle Bus 3D?
Just like the name Idle Bus 3D suggests, it’s an idle game that involves managing buses.
Ingame it is also 3D, which to be fair to the creators looks quite nice.
That is though another incremental game to come my way, and what that means is you only have to do simple clicks to succeed.
In this case, the whole idea is around setting up bus stations that will eventually bring in lots of coins.
From trying games like Puppy Town, its a case of the more work you put in early on, the easier it becomes.
While they aren’t a game I would play when I put up my feet up at night, they are trendy.
That reflects with the installs on this game in pre-launch, with over 100k in less than a month.
The developers go by Extra-Life Entertainment, which seems to be an Asian company as there are symbols found while playing the game.
For instance, the managers all have Asian symbols above the name. However, I don’t know what nationality they are.
How Does Idle Bus 3D Work?
The first thing you must do once you have started the game is to purchase your first bus.
Idle Bus 3D gives you ten coins for you to do so, as you can see in the image below.
As a result, you get a cash prize, in my case I received $2.89
Now the whole idea is around building bus lines.
At the start, you will need to do all the work. That includes getting the buses running and getting the passengers on the bus.
Tapping on each of them will get them both moving.
For each person who jumps on the bus, you will get rewarded with coins.
As you upgrade the bus stations, you will also earn more income per person.
At the start, it feels like you have a lot to do, but after all, you get used to it, and it all becomes automatic.
It’s like Idle Playground and My Cat but has a little more to it.
You will be able to become idler by hiring managers.
One for the buses and one for the passengers.
That will do the work for you. However, you will need to invest your coins in them.
How To Make Money With Idle Bus?
At the start, it isn’t obvious how you will make money.
From upgrading the buses and the stations, you get mostly coins.
However, from playing it, I found that once you get to milestone levels, you get bonuses.
So when I managed to get the bus station to level 10, I received another couple of dollars.
The other way to make money is by purchasing new stations.
If you do want to receive the cash, you will have to watch a short video first though.
How Do They Pay?
With similarities too, games like Fish Blast, Word Counter, and Bounty Puzzle users need to make $100 before they can get a payout.
Not only is the threshold needed the same, but also the design of the payout pop-ups and button is similar to the three games above.
Now with the payout being as high as it is, it’s not unexpected. After all, the adverts show a few people making hundreds of dollars over a few cashouts.
However, with the way the game plays and from getting a feel of it, I feel like it will be hard to reach that threshold.
Getting new stations becomes increasingly harder as to how much coins needed is higher than the last upgrade.
But and even though he could be tedious making enough to cash out, there is a chance you could get paid as Idle Bus 3D is new.
If you acquire enough in-game dollars, you can choose between an Amazon Gift Card or being paid through PayPal.
With reviews in the store disabled at the moment because it is beta testing, there isn’t a sign of proof of payment.
But once Idle Bus 3D is fully released, there will be more evidence on whether they do or don’t payout.
What You Need To Know About
1. Ads Claiming Big Amounts
When I first saw the advertisement for Idle Bus 3D, which popped while playing another free cash game, I had a feeling of what to expect.
They always portray this idea that these games are easy to earn.
To the point where they make you feel silly for not coming across them sooner.
But during these adverts, everything these people touch seems to turn to gold.
That is a screenshot of someone who checked their PayPal balance after using the game.
As you can tell, not only is the image fake, because if you have PayPal, you will know the layout is entirely different.
But the amount that this person has made has also been made up.
Not only will you struggle to earn $680, but you will likely struggle to make a single dollar.
Its the lure of these games they show you amount you dream off, then, in the end, leave you chasing that for ages.
Eventually, you will give up, leaving them with the ad revenue and you with nothing.
Now, as I have mentioned, this is a game in pre-launch, and they could surprise me by being different from every other app.
But that is unlikely as all these free cash apps are rubbish for earning.
2. Good Graphics
The game itself isn’t too bad. At the start, it is a little slow with you having to do a lot of the tapping to get buses and passengers going.
But with the graphics and the objective of getting a quick and efficient line of bus stations, it does make an enjoyable game.
The likelihood is that you are here to see if you can make money with Idle Bus 3D, which is fine.
But if you were on the hunt for a fun game on the store that you can have fun with, this could be it.
3. Ads After Each Click
Whether it is upgrading buses or collecting cash, everything requires you to watch an ad.
That does make sense since the business model does rely on ad revenue.
But if ads being shown at every opportunity, then you will probably get frustrated early.
4. Still In Pre Launch
With the game not fully launched yet, there isn’t too much evidence in terms of payouts.
Now I don’t want to be the bearer of bad news, but most games like this don’t pay.
Just check out Merge Number Plus and Lucky Plinko, who also have high thresholds but have a track record for not paying out.
I get many people asking me whether these games pay, and nine times out of 10, they don’t.
However, in this case, and once Idle Bus 3D is launched fully, we will have to cross our fingers on them paying their users fairly.
Once I get more information, I will return to this Idle Bus 3D review and update you.
The other aspect that I hope they fix up is the grammatical errors.
Sometimes you can let them slide however when there so clear it is hard to ignore them.
An example I found was this one:
Now, this is the section you go to in order to get paid.
But you wouldn’t know that since as you can see it says ‘Banlance’ instead of balance.
This is quite a big error and something you will see a lot of over these apps.
Especially the simple games that look like they have been created within a few days.
All in all, this looks very unprofessional and hopefully their team catch on to this and fix it.
Idle Bus 3D is a game that right from the get-go attracts you with the visuals and a game that offers something interesting with the bus theme.
However, there are questions on whether or not they pay out, especially with such a high threshold.
This is never a good sign, as apps never payout a lot even though the adverts claim they do.
From playing this game, I did get $10 quite quickly, but the trend is that after a few days of playing, you get a dramatic decrease in earnings.
The choice is yours whether you want to give it ago.
You could play the game for the game as it is fun, but as for the cashout options, I would take it easy and not invest too much energy and time.
As there are no guarantees that they will pay at the end of it, as after all, this is a new app as opposed to an established reward site.
If you have had a chance to play the game or have even managed to get paid, then do let me know by leaving a comment down below.
Thanks for reading my Idle Bus 3D review I do hope it helped you out.
