When it comes to spending real life money on donuts to buy items in a game, one has a right to wonder if this purchase is worth it. Let’s take a look at Macaroni’s Shed and see if it’s worth the 30 donuts.

Should I buy Cremo Bot?

When a tapper is about to spend real world money on donuts for a purchase in a game, he or she has a right to wonder if it’s worth it. Today’s update is an episode tie-in and it brings us a new premium item: Cremo Bot. This Cremo Bot is to appear in this Sunday’s new episode “Days of Future Future” in which the couch gag involves a soon to be retired David Letterman.

 

Now let’s take a look at the pros and cons to purchasing Cremo Bot for your game.

Level 39 where are you?

Hello tappers! Is it just me or does it seem like forever since the last time we had a level update? In fact, level 38 arrived on January 16th, a little over 2 months ago. Since then, we’ve had 2 episode tie-in updates, the Valentine’s Day event, the Superbowl event and the ongoing St. Patrick’s Day event. While some could argue that EA has blessed us with a plethora of new content since the beginning of 2014, others will convey that they are very eager to see a new level update hit their Springfield. Especially those who need over 600,000 XP to reach a virtual level that gives donuts!

Last year, EA dropped new levels on us every 2 weeks for quite some time, but it seems that since the Halloween event, new levels occur less and less frequently. Fortunately, we do get to have special events related to real world holidays, and we are even offered items from those themes. Most of us missed out on these during the first year of Tapped Out due to the fact that the game was not yet available on Android at the time. This game gained even more popularity than ever before when that happened. It has me wondering if the game declined in popularity in the last few months? It can’t be a financial issue since we know that Tapped Out is one of the best grossing revenue game apps for 2013!

The bright side of this is that if you wanted to redesign your town, you’ve had plenty of time to do it. Even better if you were behind on a few levels. It gives you a chance to fill up your TSTO bank account, too. It’s always nice to have some cash in advance when a new level hits so you can afford to buy the new buildings right away instead of grinding desperately for the amount you need. It also gives us time to talk about a wider variety of Simpsons related things like my series on the actors behind the voices, the music from the TV show, the LEGO set and much more. The down time is also always a good time to speculate about what could be added next. Fans just LOVE talking about what item, building or character from the show could be added next. Sometimes, it feels like someone working at EA reads these blogs at night and pulls out our ideas in meetings. Are they doing it to be nice to the hardcore fans, or do they take the credit for the ideas? As long as we get Crazy Cat Lady next update – I guess it’s all good!

So, are you guys ready for a new level? What do you think awaits us next? Give us you hopes and dreams in the comments section.

Should I Buy the Wishing Well?

River greens ‘a flowin’ tappers! I hope you read that in an Irish accent! When it comes to premium items, you may ask yourself if the thing you covet is worth spending hard earned money for donuts in a virtual world. Today we are taking a look at a premium item for the St-Patrick’s Day event: the wishing well. As we have seen with previous holiday related events, EA likes to give us what we missed last year. This item was available last year under the same circumstances as this year.

WARNING: There are SPOILERS regarding the quest dialogue at the bottom of this post. Be careful if you don’t want to see it just yet! Now, let’s weigh in the pros and cons of purchasing this decoration.

The Faces behind the Voices

How are my dear Yellow Sky Fingers doing this Wednesday? Today I bring you a post about the fine people behind the voices of the Simpsons characters. This is mostly for fans of the TV show but it also relates to Tapped Out in the sense that it will explain why some of our characters are voiced in the game and others aren’t. If you are curious to know more about these voice actors, you’re in for a treat! There are 6 main actors on The Simpsons, 6 people doing recurring roles and several other guest voices that come back every so often. This installment will be posted in 3 parts, otherwise it would be too lengthy for one sitting. Today, we are going to talk about the main cast.

Snowball II – Friendship Level 3

Ho-diddly-ho neighbor-eenos! Today I’m going to talk about the 3rd level of friendship prize that is none other than Lisa’s best friend: Snowball II! I personalty think it was about time this character was released in the game. Santa’s Little Helper was made available long ago and it was mandatory the EA gives the cat too. Now, if only we could get a real version of Maggie instead of just seeing her on Marge’s 8 hour task, the Simpsons would all be reunited at last! But that’s another post. Let’s take a look at what this kitten means to Tapped Out.
