Series: Your Story Universe is a new interactive story game for the iOS and Android platforms that puts you right in the middle of your favorite movies and television shows. These range from classic teen movies like Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club to current shows such as NCIS and Vanderpump Rules and newer movies such as Bridesmaids.
Along with that, you have multiple episodes of each game, and you can play them however you want, by making choices that affect the outcome of the story. Plus, you can earn gems and tickets along the way.
Read on for some tips and tricks for Series: Your Story Universe!
In whatever story you pick, you don’t play one of the classic characters; instead, you play as yourself, or whatever avatar you decide to pick, design, and name. The choices that you make determine how the story progresses over the course of an episode.
In order to play a standard level of the game, you need to spend an episode ticket. You can get two free episode tickets every 2 and a half hours, or you can buy more of them to speed the game along.
Gems are the secondary currency of the game; the ‘premium’ currency as it were. Oftentimes there are choices that you can make during these stories that cost gems. When they do, they cost between 25 and 35 gems, typically.
However, you can only farm one gem at a time from a particular episode. And that’s only the first time that you play an episode; if you replay it, you won’t get a gem once you beat it.
Sure, there are a lot of episodes that you can play per show and per movie, and more are going to keep getting added, most likely, but that’s playing 25-35 episodes for only one choice.
So since you earn so few gems, you’re going to either have to end up buying them, or saving them, being stingy with them, and then using them very wisely on your favorite episode (or episodes) of your favorite story.
However, if you don’t care about the premium choices, then just play the game as you want to, while avoiding the premium choices. It may take 1:15 to get one episode ticket, but each episode lasts so long that if you are paying attention and reading along (not just tapping through), it will take almost that long to finish an episode sometimes.
