Where is…MY CHARACTER???!!

As more and more reports of the main quest line characters are coming in, I wanted to just touch basis and update everyone on the issue. Some have experienced Homer and/or Martin traveling to Krustyland, but are unable to get them to return back to Springfield to complete the next quest. Some, like Wookiee (keep clear, some arm ripping may occur), have Homer in Springfield…but off in the “dark lands”. (Mufasa told Simba not to go over there. “Everything the light touches” people, sheesh.) So some get the lovely treat and experience of being able to look at their characters…but unable to get to them at all. In my experience, I have nasty lil Gremlins “hiding” in the dark area. I assumed they just timed out as they are no longer there. (Thank goodness for that 4 hour count down.) I still have not had a response on my issue, I will update when/if I do.

Not sure where you are in the Halloween Event? Stressing out you’re not gonna make it? Well no worries. It seems as long as you are averaging 300 daily, you should be on target for all the prizes and goodies. But I know you are STILL gonna worry…so here is a little calendar to help you out. Stay ahead and at the end, you will be able to hit those bonus rounds to have a chance of FREE DONUTS!!!

There is a reported issue ongoing with the bonus levels. See here for more info.

(I set it to go until the 6th due to you never know what time they will actually shut it all down on the 7th. Better to play it safe.)




Now people wonder why they should continue beyond the 10,000 Goo. Two words…FREE DONUTS!!The Spooktacular Bonus. It works the same way as the XP bonus levels in that once you hit that extra 2000 Goo, you can pick from 3 boxes containing 1-3 donuts. Keep some extra cash for this. In case you don’t get 3 right away, you can spend $50,000 on each extra box and keep trying until you get 3 donuts. Pretty good deal to me. 🙂





You will also notice a new icon on your task book menu. A Halloween Candy. This is just there to show you are now collecting extra Goo beyond that 2000.


Snorky Speak Man

To the Hominid Readers of Addicts,

King Snorky here. Over the last month, a certain “Star Wars Fan” who calls himself “The Wookiee” has been blabbering away about my introduction into some sort of game called “The Simpsons Tapped Out”. As a peaceable sort of fellow, I let this galoof run his silly mouth and even had myself a chuckle at his meager attempt to immortalize me using strange objects. Although I don’t get using garbage bins to replicate my majesty, at least the poor brute tried.

Saturday: What’s in the ADDICT (Attic), BUNNY EDITION!

So here we are (in the USA anyway) on Saturday morning. You been up all night tapping and Goo collecting?  Thought so. Well, just to make sure you are on track for the prize at the end…try to collect 350-400 Goo canisters a day. You should be up to about 1500-1600 by the end of today in order to stay on track for all 10 prizes.  Grab a cup of “Joe” and rest that weary lil finger a bit for the last and final prize item for the Attic.

Oooooh a HAT in one of my popped ghosts (although I have been liking donuts more)! Weeeeee. No? Not much excitement? Too sleepy? Just get on with it? FINE! PICS AWAY!!
