Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Oh great, another event involving tapping microscopic things. Good thing we have the funzo finder.

And I like how they repurposed the SciFi Fighter game. But that's OK. I'm still playing anyway.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

So other than tapping Funzo robots, tapping friends and defending the Simpsons house, is there any way to earn event resources?

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out



No, there really isn't a whole lot going on yet. No character currency tasks, and I have one open quest but it's waiting for a prize that I'm still like three prizes away from earning.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

The Bart and Lisa Elf characters will allegedly earn event currency at some point.

This event feels a little empty.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Well, they keep adding stuff to buy, but not much else to do.

I'm working on prize 5 of 7 so I'm sure I'll get there, though. About prize 4:
Spoiler:
The skating rink animation is fun.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Yeah, there isn't much going on. While I wouldn't mind that with most of the mid-year events I do prefer the Christmas ones to be abit more involved.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

I saw we got new Kodos and Kang tasks but figured they were just random and didn't realize it was the start of act 2. Still haven't found anything new to do, though.

The Kwik-E-Mart farming is great. With the XP collider on and my 600% multiplier, I farm only seven buildings and get halfway through a level.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

This event is pretty boring. But I'm glad they aren't doing the mechanic where you have to log in every four hours on the dot. That's what's turned off so much of the audience here.

Jesus' escalator/office is pretty nice looking.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

I also had to get Jesus. I mean, I already had Jesus. We all have Jesus. Or he has all of us? Look, I'm just trying to say Jesus loves everyone and I spent a lot of donuts on him, okay?

F this game for having these periods when I have to download 1885.3 MB of updates every time I try to play.

I know, right? Also, the game says I need to clear space on my phone even though I have the game installed on my SD card. Stinks.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

I bought all the Stonecutters I didn't have, which was 5-6, plus the spy mystery box prize people I didn't have, so I'm at least 9-10 storylines deep in my task box! "Task box WAAAAAY open!"

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

I bought the two Stonecutter outfits I lacked plus Number 51. Ten donuts each was pretty cheap. But outfitting those characters made me realize I also had one for Disco Stu that I'd never used.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Wow, an event that actually ended on time and without an update, I can't believe it!

Actually, they've been ending all these events on time for at least the past 6 months. No extensions/extra time to finish. I was surprised the first time it happened to me as missed Krusty's dad because of it.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

The prizes/etc. shut down on time today, but I was annoyed that the daily challenge was still to tap justice agents and when I did tap on them the counter didn't go down. Fortunately they've now replaced that task.

I guess now I can put my thieves on some of the tasks that have been stacking up.

And yes, I am still playing even though I have to download 1.4 GB every other time I try to play.

We just started playing. Pretty fun and not NEAR as demanding as some other daily games I've played. Feel free to add three of us from our family:

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Requests sent! Though I was surprised to also find a Sagerhero1. Having friends helps build resources when you're just starting out.

And I'm still downloading huge updates, but the last couple times haven't had to sign in, which is a significant improvement if it sticks.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Classic episode - who shot Mr. Burns! Seems like EA is doing constant events with lots of donut purchases.

For those of you that still are playing and are doing the Kwik-E-Mart farming, the best thing to do is to find a large open plot and place all of them in a square/rectangle pattern. Then you can tap and hold and bulk sell them after collecting. This was an immense time saver and prevents you from accidentally storing the Kwik-E-marts instead of selling them. I still haven't found a way to bulk buy buildings but bulk selling saves so much time and tapping.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Next update is Itchy and scratchyland. It will be interesting to see if it will be merged with Krusty Land, or maybe it will be the upper portion of Springfield Heights.
