Random Changes Level 57

Hey there Hoppereenos!

WOOHOO!!! BELLE IS IN THE GAME FINALLY!!! I swear EA took my list of “Bunny wants in the game…” and just keeps going with it. Sideshow Bob as a Character, Monorail, Maison Derriere… to name a few. Now if only I can keep sending them mental images of Maggie as a Character, I will be set. ;)

In the midst of the Monorail Event, EA has chose to dump on up a Level Update. Getting really used to this by now, so anticipated something coming. I am definitely happy with what they brought, that’s for sure.

Now with the New Items comes some New Changes, so let’s go over some of them.

Monorail Act 3 Is Live

Note: The servers have been giving me issues off and on since Act 3 hit.   It’s probably just a bunch of people trying to get in at once.  Or it’s just because it’s 4am here on the East Coast and 1am where EA is.  In any event…don’t panic if you see the Bart Screen.  Just hit retry and see if you can get back in.  If you can’t, walk away from your game for a little bit and come back to it later.  The servers will come back, they always do…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Happy Friday!  Woohoo it’s finally the weekend!  (well as soon as 5pm rolls around…)  But here I am up at just after 4am here on the East Coast because Act 3 (the final Act) of the Monorail is now live!

Remember…this is an automatic change in your game.  Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..

Just what does Act 3 have in store for us?  Let’s take a look…

Turbo Tappin’ Level 57: Old Jewish Man

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 57 hit our tappin’ devices earlier today and with it arrived a classic Simpsons character…Old Jewish Man!

So now that there’s a new Level in our tapping devices, you know what that means right?  Time for another Turbo Tappin!  So with that let’s jump right in and Turbo Tap the Main Questline (Freemium) of Level 57!

As we mentioned in the Level 57 rundown post the main questline is started by Homer, and the quest to build the Overpass Diner is started (24hr build).

Remember…this is NOT timed.  This is simply a Level update.  You do not have to complete it right this very second.  So take your time and have fun with it!

So now….let’s get to Tappin’ shall we?!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Looks like…amongst all the other craziness going on in our games right now…Level 57 has arrived!

2015-09-03 14.29.22

Along with 2 of the more requested characters/buildings.  (one Bunny and Wookiee have been asking for since 2013)

Things are a little hectic this morning but I’ll be back with more details as I have them.  But for now know that Homer kicks things off.  And you’ll be tasked with building the Overpass Diner which will cost you $1,062,600 and take 24hrs to build.

Back with more in a bit…

Oh and remember..this is a Level Update and it is NOT timed.  So take your time on this, and spend your time focusing on the Monorail (since that IS timed).  Level 57 will still be here when the Monorail is over… Continue reading

Springfield Heights and the Conform-o-Meter

Some new premium items hit our stores this morning. ..we’ll cover them a little later this morning when we’re a little more awake.  :)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Back a couple of months ago the Springfield Heights Expansion hit our tappin’ devices and with it arrived a bunch of new buildings and decorations.  Everything from solid gold mailboxes to flying cars!  So let’s take a look at how these new and returning items impact our Conform-O-Meter…

The Conform-O-Meter is an important part of Tapped-Out because it provides you with a bonus boost in your cash and  XP from everything you collect in the game.  When you achieve a 5-Star Town (it’s max rating) you will receive a 5% bonus on all money and XP collected in your town.  If you missed the previous Conform-O-Meter posts check here for the basics and here for how many points you’ll need to reach 5 stars.

While the Springfield Heights Expansion brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, it did bring a bunch of buildings and decorations.  So let’s take a look at how all of the new “goodies” impact our rating: Continue reading

Springfield Heights Real Estate Point Prizes: Montessori School to Ziff Mansion

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So the Springfield Heights Expansion arrived in our games a couple of months ago and it introduced a whole new area of extended play for Tappers.  Remember, Springfield Heights is NOT an event.  Instead it’s an expansion.  It’s designed to take some time to complete…so there’s no rush to finish it.  It’s not going anywhere.

Anywho…as I was saying, Springfield Heights arrived and brought a whole new area of play for us.  In addition to purchasing land and items you can also earn Real Estate Points, and those points will turn into 5 exclusive Springfield Heights Prizes.  Let’s take a look at the first four Springfield Heights Prizes and breakdown what they do, how big they are & how you earn them…
