12/22 In Game Update: Apu, Frankincense & Donuts

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Looks like we had a little in-game update hit our Tapping Devices…..

2014-12-16 14.28.54

I’m hoping the main reason for this update is to fix the Zutroy glitch..so if he’s been missing in your Springfield and you finally got him after this update, please let us know.

Update: This is NOT a Zutory patch.  The patch is still on it’s way…this is something else…

In addition there’s also a new questline with Apu that’s popped up.  It’s called Frankincense, Myrrh, and Donuts.  I’m currently running through it to see exactly what’s involved and will let you know on this post shortly….

Christmas 2014 Walkthroughs: Zutroy

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well Part 1 of TSTO Christmas is coming to an end very soon.  And many of you should have completed your Elf Tunnel tasks over the weekend.  Once you complete all 19 days of tasks you’ll be awarded Zutroy!

Zutroy is a Freemium character (since he’s awarded for free) BUT he earns at a Premium rate!  And I know many of you are wondering just what this character has to do with Christmas…and in reality, nothing.  BUT his questline is fun & has a great message at the end.  One that I think is perfect for this time of the year…

So now that we’ve got Zutroy, let’s take a look at his questline & just what happens when he enters your Springfield…

Note: I know many of you are suffering from a lack of Zutroy in your Springfield right now.  This is a known glitch with EA..and one they are working to resolve.  For now you can try some of the basic troubleshooting (you never know…your situation might now be glitch related & could be something else)…and if those steps don’t work then contact EA and let them know you’re impacted too.  Details for missing Zutroy can be found on this post.


WARNING: Dialogue ahead…

Where Did THAT Come From – Nativity

Hey there holiday tappers! Howzit? So TSTO is officially in White Christmas mode and the snow is a’falling. I don’t know about you but I love my town covered in snow. As a Southern California resident, I like the snow I can oooh and aaah over without being cold or shoveling it. Of course with a brand new event comes brand new stuff to chat about. My favorite part is of course re-watching Simpsons episodes and then sharing with you just where THAT comes from. For this edition, let’s take a look at the Nativity.

Christmas 2014 Walkthroughs: King Winter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

There’s a chill in the air in Springfield and the snow is falling.  It looks like the temperature drop brought a new wintery character to Springfield, King Winter.

We’ve already broken down the pros and cons on this premium purchase, and if he’s worth your donuts.  But now we wanted to take a look at what happens when/if you do purchase him & just what’s involved in his qusetline.  So let’s break it all down for you in the full Walkthrough version for King Winter….

As a reminder…King Winter WILL be leaving the store once Phase 1 is over & Phase 2 starts.  So if you’re thinking about getting him make sure you pick him up before 12/24….
