Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Well…Black Friday has come and gone and Gil is still sticking around! Why? Well because today is Cyber Monday, and what better way to get the holiday season going than with Ole’ Gil taking a bunch of your donuts!
So what’s he offering this time? Well…for a limited-time (ie today, Monday 12/1, only) you can purchase Truckasaurus! Truckasaurs is a premium decoration for your Springfield.
Now I’m sure you’re wondering…”is this something I should take Gil up on? Or am I better off saving my donuts for something better?” Well…before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this robotic beast to YOUR Springfield!
Cost: 225 donuts
Bonus %: 4.75% on all cash and XP
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +400
Unique: Yes, only 1 per Springfield.
-It looks cool
-Animated when tapped
-Offers a nice bonus%
-HUGE. At 12×6 this thing is MASSIVE! Can be hard to fit into your Springfield
-Doesn’t actually “eat” or crush the car
-Insanely expensive for what it is/does
-Only improves Vanity, one of the easiest Conform-O-Meter requirements to max out
-No character interaction with it. No quests.
This is basically a less expensive version of the whale. It’s cool to have in Springfield, but it doesn’t do much…and is crazy expensive. While it offers a nice bonus %…it’s hard to see that overcoming just how massive it is. With space tight in many Springfields it can be difficult to find the right space to put Truckasaurus. So in my opinion…unless you have a TON of donuts to burn or you just LOVE Truckasaurus…this one is a pass. With Christmas right around the corner you’re better off saving your donuts for those limited time items then blowing a large chunk of them on this 1 decoration (even if it is cool).
Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would/wouldn’t do…and I can tell you this is one I plan on passing on. I don’t own a whale and I don’t need a robot taking up a ton of space in my already crowded Springfield. Just remember…whatever you decide this IS Limited-Time so be sure to make your decision before Gil leaves Springfield on at 0800GMT on Tuesday 12/2!
There is a little bit of dialogue that pops up when you purchase the Truckasaurus and here it is…
Homer: Ooo! Ooo! Ooo! TRUCK-A-SAURUS!! Who wouldn’t want a giant car-shredding robot monster?
And that’s it!
