THE FINAL COUNTDOWN!!!

Tick tock, tick tock. There is now less than 1 hour left on the countdown clock.

Final Halloween Hour

Better hurry up and buy up all those items you waited on. Hit those last Goo Goals. Collect the last of the ghosts that you can and see if you can acquire more free donuts.

Just get it done NOW! Halloween is finally coming to a close.

…and just what comes next? Stay tuned to find out. :)

UPDATE: Countdown is over. Nothing there now but a blank screen. Oh EA, why must you torment us so? So…sometime…maybe…in the next 22 1/2 hrs…it will stop.

My Goo Count is Off- Update

A bit a go I posted in regards to the STILL ongoing issue with the Goo count just not matching up with the Spooktacular Bonus count. Not to mention sometimes just not getting one. I have been in constant contact with EA on the issue. Phone calls, emails, online chats, etc. I FINALLY got an update back. A little late for my taste as the event is about over, but at least they are trying to correct issue.

Halloween Event Must Buy Guide

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers,

Well Halloween is almost over in Springfield. Once it’s gone on November 7th, the option to buy many of the Halloween décor will be gone! Poof just like that! They’ll disappear into the night never to be able to be purchased again…unless of course EA decides to bring them back next year for Halloween.

Should I Spend Donuts on the Freakmobile

With all of the Halloween premium items that are limited-time it may be overwhelming trying to decide which items to buy and what to pass on. With that limited-time label on items I know it can be tempting to just buy everything you can. But, have no fear! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth your donuts & what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Freakmobile to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this store to your Springfield.

For our last but certainly not least Halloween donut Premium item, we will let our TSTO Addicts Forum Moderator Poisonshift put in his two cents. :)

Tapped_Out_Freak_Mobile


Decoration:
 Freakmobile
Donut Price: 35 Donuts
Unique?: No

Pros:
-0.75% bonus money and XP to all Jobs.
-Since this item is not unique you can place several of them and reap the multiplier benefits!
-Another car!!! Well, that alone spells it.
-Limited-Time decoration.

Cons:
-After Halloween is over, this very creepy looking car wont mesh well with modern civilization, even in Springfield.
-Fairly expensive for only a quarter percent increase to your overall net.

Final Thought:
If you’re saving your donuts for something, save them for something else unless you’re a completest or you want more cars in your parking lot. If you want to put it somewhere when the event is over I would suggest near Frink’s Lab if you have it. And think of it as the Frinkmobile, he’s always got strange things going on over there and it could go well with a lab compound setup if you have one like I do. Honestly, I think this would be the last thing you would want to buy for the Limited Time Halloween event.

Should I Spend Donuts on the Wailing Wall and Spooky Wall

With all of the Halloween premium items that are limited-time it may be overwhelming trying to decide which items to buy and what to pass on. With that limited-time label on items I know it can be tempting to just buy everything you can. But, have no fear! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth your donuts & what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Wailing Wall to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this store to your Springfield.

Tapped_Out_Wailing_Wall
Decoration:
 Wailing Wall
Donut Price: 50 Donuts
Unique?: No

Pros:
-Another spooky looking decoration for your town.
-You can add as many as you want to your town.
-Animation of faces pressing out through the wall.
-Releases Ghosts. 6 ghosts every 12 hours.
-Limited-Time Decoration.  Would look really cool as something to compliment/decorate with alongside the other Halloween items you have acquired in your town.

Cons:
-You already got one for free if you logged into your account on 10/31/2013 (USA).
-Does not come with unlock quests
-No interaction with other characters and/or animals in Springfield
-Once event is over, it will really only be a decoration (unless EA allows it to continue to generate in game cash).

Final Thought:
For those holding on tight to their precious donuts, I say this one isn’t worth it for me. 50 donuts is a lot to spend on a simple single decoration wall. The 2D/3D artist in me sees the value of designing with it, but the donut hoarder in me sees it as a waste at the high cost. So, unless you’ve already purchased all of the other premium characters/buildings or you’re a completest, I would really wait on this one and save your donuts to decide towards the end of the event if you really want it.

Next up…

Wondering if you should also add the Spooky Wall to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this store to your Springfield.

Tapped_Out_Spooky_Wall

Decoration: Spooky Wall
Donut Price: 1 Donut
Unique?: No

Pros:
-Adds 0.05% bonus money and XP to all jobs.
-Unique looking wall to decorate with.
-Least expensive decoration of those offered for the event.
-Limited-Time Decoration.

Cons:
-No animation
-Does not come with unlock quests
-No interaction with other characters and/or animals in Springfield

Final Thought:
For those holding on tight to their precious donuts, this one is a difficult choice. I do like the extra multiplier you get for each one. The 2D/3D artist in me sees the design value in it. But also knowing just how many pieces it does take to make an item, several will be required to accomplish the task. (I normally use between 50+ walls in my designs). So, unless you’ve already purchased all of the other premium characters/buildings or you’re a completest, I would really wait on this one and save your donuts to decide towards the end of the event if you really want it. Then stockpile a ton if you do, especially if you plan on creating something cool with them.

30 Billion GOO & King Homer’s Skyscraper

Hey Howdy Hey Ghost Busters!

Feels like it’s been a while since we’ve been here huh? We unlocked the Frog Prince back on October 22nd and now here we are almost 2 weeks later at our 5th and FINAL Community GOO prize King Homer’s Skyscraper! Congratulations Tappers!

Looks like EA has saved the best for last. The Skyscraper is one of the coolest building additions (at least in this Addict’s opinion) in the game.

I guess they felt they wanted to toss in just a little more. So hop on over to your game RIGHT NOW as this item is only available today. Halloween.
