Welcome to my Idle Courier Tycoon Review.
After seeing an advert that I found hard to believe at first, I thought I would do some research on the app.
If you are here because you are wondering whether the game payout, then you have most likely already seen this advert.
But what it is, is a girl celebrating because she has just seemingly earned $2500+ from managing a courier business.
Now, of course, that is shed load of money, and when you take in for a second that this person made all this money within a few minutes, it does leave you puzzled.
If you are wondering whether or not they fulfill their claims or if this is all part of there elaborate plan to get you to install their game, then you will find the answer out right here.

What Is Idle Courier Tycoon?
Idle Courier Tycoon is a game where you manage your own courier service and take control of the business.
With the first word of the game, you will be idle, which means your role is to manage everything and make sure all is moving smoothly.
Similar to games like Merge Number Plus, Puppy Town, and Idle Bus 3D.
Over time you will earn in-game currency in the form of dollars that you can use to upgrade stuff.
That is because the idea of the game is to make as much money as possible.
But where this is confusing is that while you earn dollars, many users are reporting how they are worth nothing as it’s not withdrawable.
Basically, this money is to build your business, and unlike the advert cash, you can withdraw into your PayPal account.
How Does Idle Courier Tycoon Work?
First time launching Idle Courier Tycoon, you will be shown a tutorial from assistant Lara.
She will take you through how the game works and the first steps to getting a courier set up.
At the start, it is overwhelming as you are shown a lot that needs to be done.
But you get used to it, and with the machines and the trucks coming through by themselves, you can sit back.
As you upgrade machines, the money you earn will increase.
Here is what the gameplay looks like:
Why Had Century Game Made This Move?
So you have an idea of what I am getting on about here is images of the advert, which has made users furious.
Has you can make out from this photo, this user is upgrading a machine.
In return and as you can see from the top right corner, money is being made.
The dollars aren’t to be confused with the in-game one but the actual money that is withdrawable.
However, what you are seeing is nothing like the actual game.
If you watch TV you will see adverts where games show gameplay, however, make a disclaimer saying its not in-game footage.
So Century Game hasn’t even covered themselves here, which makes it even more shocking.
On to the question, and that is why have the developers decided to release a fooling advert.
The straightforward answer is to get a high CTR from people who view the advert to actually going to the app store and installing the game.
Its all about engagement, the more people who engage with the game, the better it looks.
What You Need To Know About Idle Courier Tycoon
1. Different Game To Whats Advertised
I know I have touched upon this already, but I just want to make it clear that what is advertised has nothing to do with the actual game.
It looks like you get PayPal money for each upgrade, which sounds great.
However, that is not the case, and with people getting the game only to find, not only is this not possible, but there are no opportunities to earn, it is very confusing.
This is where the problem lies and why I am making it clear now, as people are installing the game under the wrong impression. It’s not their fault but the people who have created the advert, as there portraying something that is nothing like the actual game they offer.
At the end of the day, the game is just a standard free to play one.
If you had not initially come across the advert for it, you would be surprised to hear that there was an ad that says you can get rewarded.
2. Constantly Encouraged To Watch Ads
Unrelated to the earning aspects I have touched upon but also a repeatedly raised complaint I found.
This was being encouraged to watch ads at every opportunity.
Along with just showing you 30 seconds clips anyway, just from playing, I noticed how I was offered a few more dollars just watching videos.
With these kinds of idle games, watching ads aren’t necessary as you will make money eventually as long as you upgrade smartly.
But none the less it is still annoying, especially if you just want to play the game, a lot of reviews do reflect this too.
Here are a few of the ones I found:
So Idle Courier Tycoon is legit and is a game that is fine to play, especially if you’re into a business/tycoon themed games.
That is not the problem with this game, as while I am saying that they are not a scam, there is a present issue that can’t be ignored, which is false advertising.
Business is competitive; everybody business wants to do better than their competitors and take their company to the next level.
However, there is a line, and in this case, the developers Century Game has taken it too far.
Their advert shows a game where you can make hundreds of dollars; however, that just isn’t the case. In fact, when you download the app, you feel as if you have downloaded a game different from the one advertised.
That just shows you how much they are misleading people, as there is not a single opportunity to make money on the game.
The game itself is completely fine; you can tell that the developers have worked hard on it, and that is reflected by many positive reviews where people love the gameplay.
But baiting people into downloading a game that they wouldn’t have even given a second look too if it wasn’t for the huge claims of making money is very wrong.
I hope you found this Idle Courier Tycoon review of use to you. As always, if you have a comment about the app that you would like to share, you can do so below.
Thank you for this update about the game. I really found it helpful. I have scammed by other games that don’t pay out. The acutal games were fun but the face that they advertised that they paid really turned me off.
Thank you for this update about the game. I really found it helpful. I have been scammed by other games that didn’t not pay out. The actual games were fun but the falese advertising really turned me off. This blog objectively acurrately describes the game, motive for developers to false advertise, but stresses that the actual game is legit. (Not used to steal information). Thank you!
So if they are advertising that you can make money, but it’s not actually possible to make money, how is it not a scam??
