The Kim Kardashian: Hollywood game is becoming more and more popular, recently reaching the top of the apps chart. The game has been compared to the Facebook game Stardom.

In the new game, players try to go from being a nobody to being a celebrity–with help from Kardashian. But some players need more help, leading them to search for cheats and tips.

Let’s check out some of those:


—Completing projects

The most important part of the game is completing projects, including photo shoots and acting gigs. After a project is completed, you can move on to others. It’s also possible to do more than one at the time.

You can check which projects you can do in your quest tab, and check which ones you’re currently embarked on by tapping the check mark box in the lower right hand corner of the screen.

—Earning extra money

Money is also important in this game, and a good way to get it is working at the So Chic department store. You can also work at some of the Kardash stores, which are spread across the country. The Miami, Calabasas, and New York locations specifically will let you work there.

The longer the shift, the more money you get, along with experience points. Work the longest shifts possible. Also, try not to start gigs until your energy is completely full because it’s easier to complete it and get 5 stars. If your manager calls with a long gig, ask if there are any shorter ones.

—Changing appearance

To change hair and skin color, along with make-up, go to the Clothes store by tapping the hanger button. After tapping the head icon, you should see a new head and eye icon. 

Use the menu to change the skin or eye color, or other options such as hairstyle.

—Connect with friends

If you connect your game on Facebook then you can flirt and connect with friends who are playing the game as well.

Just send them a request or a message on Facebook indicating that you’re looking to play together. To invite someone to a gig, tap the blue person icon with the plus sign, then choose the person. Friends can typically help you earn more.

—Connecting with contacts inside the game

The more people you meet in the game the better. You meet them at places such as clubs and bars.

Adding contacts earns you a fan bonus, and you can also connect with them in some of the projects.


To invite someone on a date, go to a restaurant, club, or bar then click the pink heart icon with the plus sign and choose the person. Try to always date people that are higher than you on the list.

It’s also best to start dates with full energy because it’s easier to complete the gig and get 5 stars. You can get more experience points by buying a drink at the bar and asking for gossip and tips. Also, try to save most of your money and silver stars to charm people who are above you.

—Remember where you are

The game has a number of cities players can choose from. They can move between them on public transportation. Your manager will tell you where your first gig is but it can that’s about it.

California locations include Pop Glam and So Chic in downtown Los Angeles, The Brew Palms in Hollywood, Panino and Kim’s Mansion in Beverly Hills, the Mystery Entrance in Calabasas, and the Airport at LAX.

Out of State locations include the Beach House and LIF in Miami, Chateau Nuit and Glamm Magazine in Las Vegas, and Gates Towards and Kardash in New York City.


—Get unlimited energy

One of the top cheats is getting unlimited energy, because players usually have to wait for it to be replenished as they go about the game. To get unlimited energy, advance the time on your gadget to speed up the automatic replenishment.

However, it’s a little more complicated because the game has tried to combat players doing this. You actually need to close the game and remove it from the cache. Then you can go to the device settings and move the time up, even for just 30 minutes.

—Avoid paying rent

It may not be considered a cheat by some, but a good way to save money is avoiding paying your landlord. The rent is $750, which you must pay when you go home.

To avoid paying rent, simply don’t go home. On the other hand, you can eventually purchase a home or homes when you get enough money. Available homes include the apartment you start off renting in downtown LA, a condo in Hollywood, and the beach house in Miami.

—Get free money

Money can also be had–along with silver stars–by watching videos and completing offers. You get $10 per video and 1 silver star per video watched. 

There appears to be a limit on this, to the tune of several videos a day. 


—Get hidden money and rewards

There are several places that have hidden money and rewards. They can be collected every two minutes. Check out the information below.


Downtown LA — Bird, Newspaper, Bike, Cat
Hollywood — Tree, Now Open sign, Fire Hydrant, Wine Bottle (Inside the Brew Palms)
Beverly Hills — Fire Hydrant, Coffee Sign, Tree, Wine Bottle (Inside Panino)
Calabasas — Hanging yellow and purple flowers, potted flowers, Mannequin (Inside of Kardash)
LAX — Newspaper dispenser, Bird, Suitcase (Inside gate 4 at airport)


Miami — Bird, Scooter, Fire Hydrant, Mannequin (Inside of Kardash), SH Bottle (Inside LIF)
Las Vegas — Newspaper Dispenser, Moving Phone Sign, Fire Hydrant, SH Bottle (Inside Chateau Nuit), Wine Bottle (Inside Miraggion Grande)
New York — Bird, Fire Hydrant, Newspaper Dispenser, Skateboard, Suitcase, Mannequin (Inside of Kardash), Wine Bottle (Inside Oak)

—Avoid getting dumped

If you haven’t gone out on a date with someone for about 24 hours, they’ll start feeling neglected and probably want to dump you.

You can avoid this by inviting them on a date–but once they get there, don’t tap their speech bubble. Then you can leave and they won’t be able to dump you.
