Welcome to Shakedown: Hawaii! Shakedown: Hawaii follows three protagonists through a 16-bit open world. Build your own “legitimate” corporation by completing missions, acquiring businesses, sabotaging competitors, ‘re-zoning’ land, and shaking down shops for protection money. Explore the island by foot, by car, or by boat. It is filled with arcade challenges, sidequests, stores to shop at, houses to burgle, civilians to interact with, and secrets to discover. Build your corporate empire and destroy the competition.
Stage 1 – Play through the Story.
Play through the story completing all the main and sidequests along the way. As you play through the game you will learn how to earn more money, acquire more properties, and shakedown all your competition in Hawaii.
Stage 2 – Complete the Challenges.
This can be completed at any time. You will need to play through the 11 Score and 17 Weapon Challenges from the Main Menu. These are situations where you must earn, destroy, or kill a certain number of enemies to get a Gold Medal in a level. These can be replayed very quickly and you will be able to complete these in any order, even before Stage 1.

If you are having difficulties getting the boat steered into a garage correctly, you can move the boat with a car on land to get it aimed at a garage. See the video below.
Acquire every building in the city.
There are 415 properties that you need to buy in Hawaii. As you play the game and you start to earn money, you should shakedown businesses to increase how much money you are earning. Eventually, when you are able to buy Multiplier Cards for your owned properties, you want to maximize these on the properties that earn you the most amount of money. This will greatly increase your daily income. Repeat the process of buying buildings and applying for Multiplier Cards. When you are earning millions of dollars on a daily basis, you can buy as many properties that are currently available and then apply Multiplier Cards to them. Near the end of the game you will even need to buy your ex-wife’s house.
Note: The Story Mode>Properties Acquired will say 396, but it is actually 415, as shown in game.

Get a gold medal in every challenge.

These are also available in the Story Mode of the game and there are icons (Skulls and Guns) scattered across the World Map indicating where they are located. However, it is easiest to play these directly from the Main Menu. Most will not take very much time to kill/destroy/earn some many points in order to unlock the Gold Medal level for each one.
Generate over $5,000,000 per day.
As you play the game, you will earn a daily income. This income can be increased by shaking down businesses, buying properties, adding Multiplier Cards to your properties, buying all of a certain type of building like Parking Garages gives another cash bonus, and completing Missions and Sidequests throughout the story of the game. When you have eventually reached a point where you have enough money to buy properties and Multiplier Cards, you will want to spend almost all of your money so that you increase your daily income by an exponential amount.

Keep increasing your rate of buying properties and adding the maximum number of Multiplier Cards so that you have no issues with money in the game.
