Introducing the Power-Up

So, you know in Super Mario Kart when you are racing around the track and you drive into those big glowy question-mark boxes? Those boxes are called power ups.

And now Empire Avenue has them, though our Power-Ups look and behave a little differently and you don't have to drive into them to collect them.

Exceptions to the rule
Power-Ups are a new class of Upgrade Item in Empire Avenue -- they're found in the Shop under Purchase Upgrades.

Power-Ups are designed to help you do things you can't normally do, but only for a short time or for a limited number of uses, or both.

Mmmm. Frappe!
The first Power Up is especially special :D Our good friends at Big Train are sponsoring the Break the Pie Power Up with their Frappe Range of products, make sure you check out their Empire Avenue profile and buy some shares.

This limited time Power Up will be available only until Friday, November 25th, 2011.

Here's how it works:

The Break the Pie Power Up allows you to break the limit of max shares possible in a person by 100. You must be maxed-out in them already for the power up to show. You can use this power up 10 times and must be used within 1 (One) week of purchasing!

How much?
Now here's a really neat thing; the price of the Break the Pie Power Up is variable, and based on your Portfolio and Bank Values. Which means for players with a lower value, the Power Up is less expensive than for players with a higher value.

One more thing
The Break the Pie Power Up actually allows you to break ANY maximum limit by 100, even the Fresh Face limit.

So there you go.  You've now got a new way to think about playing Empire Avenue, for a limited time only ;) So try them out, and let us know what you think! And if you've got some ideas for Power Ups, feel free to let us know!
