The gameplay is totally based on the decision you made on the asked question. Some of the questions like Did you buy the cleaning kit? What if a messy passenger drops some of its cheese from the burger? Should I take a day off to complete the pending personal tasks? You will be given options and the sooner you select will take you to the next situation. At some point, it may ask what if you won't be able to make enough money at the end of the week to pay bills? And can you complete today’s quest by working 2 hours more to get a bonus?
The idea behind the game is to put forward the whole Uber system and how it works for the driver. In the easy version, you will be living San Francisco with high fares of rides on the other hand tough situation will take you to Sacramento where your credit is poor.
