You are the new shopkeeper of Nitrome-Mart, a store devoted to selling Nitrome merchandise. You play the game by selecting ten items from a list. These ten items will be the items you have available for sale on that day. There will be hints telling you just what merchandise is popular on that day, to help you make the right choices and, in turn, make the most sales possible. Then you must select a price for those items. If a customer doesn't like that price, you may lose their business. Once you are ready to start the day, you click the Open button, and Nitrome-Mart opens for the day. Once the store opens, customers will begin to walk in. To see what they want to buy, hover the mouse cursor over them. If you have that item in stock, click on them to sell it to them. But be aware, as you sell items, you may be getting more money, but soon you'll be out of that item! After five minutes, the day is up. A box will come up showing you your daily profits. Then, you have to go into your menu and either select new items to put up for sale, buy more of an item so that you can continue to sell it, or raise and lower prices for certain items. Then, you click Open to start the next day. After 30 days/levels, (one month), your overall profits are pooled together to form your total score.
Use your mouse to select items for sale, raise and lower prices, and raise the number of certain items you have in stock.
How to Play
This was pretty much explained in the Plot section, but this will go into detail a bit more. To bring up the list of items, you click the Merchandise tab. To select an item, click the Plus sign next to that item. To deselect it, press the Subtraction sign next to that item. A bar running along the left side of the box the item is displayed in shows how much of that item you currently have. When this bar is low, you need to buy more of that item. To buy more, simply raise the level on that bar, but be aware that the more you raise the bar, the more money you are spending. Along the bottom of the box the item is displayed in is a smaller box with a number in it. This number is the price of the item. To lower or raise it, click on the box and type in the new number. You may have to raise or lower this number contrary to whether or not your customers think it is a good price.
