Once you've graduated from school and rushed into real life, you know how difficult it can be, to succeed and gain fast promotion. The game Jones in the Fast Lane is trying to simulate real life and guide you through a crash course of everyday life. At the beginning you will need to set your priorities and set up your life goals, what you want to achieve. You have to adapt four categories: money, hapiness, education and career. Surely, you have already guessed, you can not achieve absolutely everything and you have to compromise. This is a simulation game combined with turn-based strategy, so you have to carefully think about every move you make. You should start by looking for a new job. Since you are at the beginning with just a minimal education, you have to start at the lowest position, whether it is a janitor or clerk in fast food chain. Do not forget to eat, otherwise you're gonna have health problems and you will not be able to work and lose money. After you earn some money, you can spend them on clothes, food, education, but you also have to think about paying the rent at the end of month. How life of your character is gonna turn out it's up to you.
