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.
