Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
By now you all know Ol’ Gil is back in Springfield. This time he’s brought his bag of tricks to try and do everything his can to entice you to go in on his offer! What’s he offering this time? Unfortunately, not discounted donuts (we just saw that in December).
This time Gil is bringing an offer of Krusty sized proportions in Krustylu Studios, Sideshow Mel & the Cannon…and if that wasn’t crazy enough he’s thrown in Dr. Nick (because he always adds a little crazy to the party!) for a cost of 200 donuts! Those items combined normally would set you back 250 donuts. Seems like a great deal right? Well before you give in to Ol’ Gil’s terms let’s break down the deal and see if this is something you should spend your donuts on.
Now let’s break down the combined deal…
-You’re saving 50 donuts
-Two characters included in package. Both characters earn at a premium rate (50% more on all cash an XP) AND both come with their own questline when unlocked. (Walkthroughs are here for Dr. Nick and here for Sideshow Mel)
-Krustylu Studios earns $150, 17xp every 5hrs. A pretty decent rate.
-Canon unlocks a 30min (funny) task for Sideshow Mel.
-Canon earns a 0.5% bonus on all cash and XP
-Unlocking Dr. Nick will unlock a special quest for Dr. Nick and Bart on Squidport.
-Krustylu Studios is a neat looking building to add to your Springfield right next to Channel 6.
-Building will get used.
-You’re only saving 50 donuts.
-Krustylu Studios is a big building. At 12×10 it can be hard to place in your Springfield, especially if it’s already crowded.
Honestly…I think this is a decent deal. It’s hard for me to find negatives about Dr. Nick & Sideshow Mel. They’re two fun characters in the game and have amusing tasks. My only thought is this….if you’ve been saving your donuts for something else DON’T spend them to get this deal. Just because it’s limited-time and will run out in 5 days doesn’t mean you need to jump on it. If donuts are not something you easily come by save them for something you really really want. With this deal you’re only saving 50 donuts, so if you miss out now it’s not the end of the world.
Whatever you decide just remember…this offer is only going to be around for 5 days. Gil will leave Springfield on the 25th, just like Valentine’s Day. So if you’re looking at making the purchase make sure you don’t miss out!
What do YOU think of the Gil offer? Will you be adding these items to your Springfield? Is there something else you’ve had your eye on instead? Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you! 🙂
