Another 2D Journey from Wookieecorp (Emperor Moe)

My latest 2D happened quite by accident.  My friend and 2D admirer, Em Cha from www.tapped-out.co.uk. and TopiX posted some requests for 2Ds on the site to the resident artists (Shelfcleaner, Bunny and myself).  We all agreed on the images we wanted to do and I chose Moe.

Before you get your tapping finger locked and loaded to hit those spray cans, let’s review some Pros and Cons on Vandalizing a neighbor’s town… Continue reading

TSTO Game Crashing

If this happens to you (often) the good news is there are some simple things you can take to try and see if it helps solve the crashing problem.   So if you’re one of the Tappers who constantly have their Springfield crashing try these solutions first to see if the crashing is solved: Continue reading
