Showoff Reminder: Halloween Preview

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well here we are, October 1st and you know what that means?  Halloween is coming!  The Simpsons are notorious for Halloween shows, and TSTO is no different!  Never failing to release an AWESOME Treehouse of Horrors update to our Tapping Devices!

So for this week’s show off….I want us all to get into the spirit of Halloween with a little Halloween Preview Showoff!  Dust off those dead trees and graveyards and show us just how YOU decorate your Springfield for Halloween!

Here’s a reminder of some events of Halloween’s past….

Tapped Out Walkthroughs: Level 44, Superfriends!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 44 hit our Springfield’s about a month ago…maybe a little less…and brought a new kid to town…Database!  Database comes with a super long, dialogue wise, questline that’s full of fun and laughs!

While we’ve had the Turbo Tappin’ walkthrough up since the update first hit (you can view it here) I know many of you still love going back and reading old walkthroughs.  They’re great if you missed any of the dialogue while playing the level, or if you just want to know what to expect when you reach Level 44.  So for those that may have missed it (or for those of you that want to live it again)…I bring you all the fun and humor of Database & Level 44…..

Clash of Clones and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Springfield has gone Medieval and Barbarians, Nerds & Castles have taken over the streets (and much in demand land), as the Clash of Clones Event is in full swing!   With all of the new items added to Tapped Out with the event I thought now would be a good time to take a look at how all of these items impact the Conform-O-Meter ratings.

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 Clash of Clones Event brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, it did bring us a ton of new items to add to our Springfield.  Let’s take a look at how all of the new “goodies” impact our rating: Continue reading

Should I Spend Donuts on Krusty’s Mansion?
