A blog dedicated to the popular mobile game, The Simpsons: Tapped Out
If you’re further along in the game, sometimes random characters will prompt you to have them fulfill a task. Most of the time it isn’t necessary or part of any quest line. You can choose to ignore them, but if you tap on the “!” you’re going to see that one-off quest in the left-side of your task bar until you complete it. This can be pretty annoying if you’re hunting for quests that actually advance the story.
Most of the time these filler quests are easy to spot, like the example below with Luigi. He hasn’t been part of any storyline related quests since early in the game, so you know not to tap on him. Sometimes it gets tricky, especially when it’s a member of the Simpson family, as more often than not they are the ones you’ll need to tap on to get things moving in the story.
If you’re following the walkthroughs you’ll have a good idea of who you’ll need to tap on to get things moving along. If not, just try traveling to Krustyland and back, or just your friend page. The “!” rotates to different characters when it’s not an important quest, so if the same character is still walking around with a “!” over their head, it’s because there are more storyline quests that you’ll need to send that character on. Keep this is mind as you play to avoid getting hung-up on needless quests.
