Where Did THAT Come From: Clamphitheater

Now that the major TSTO Events are over (Halloween & Christmas) & there’s a little bit of a lull in our games…we now have a chance to reach back into our TSTO vault and post a few posts we wrote before the madness hit.  Enjoy this look back at a premium item that arrived via Level 46, the Clamphitheater. 

In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where did THAT Come From?Springfield Clamphitheater

Time Is Up…or Is it?

Update #1: Take down is now live on iOS 

If you have an iOS device you’ll find the Christmas removal update in your App Store (Android and Amazon yours will follow soon behind).  Remember…you don’t have to update right away.  If you’re holding on to get more bells you can keep your game (for now)…eventually EA will force you to update (you’ll get a message in game saying update to latest version).  But you can hold onto Christmas for now…

As far as the update goes…naturally I left my iPod at home today so I’m not able to download it just yet.  But from looking at the game files it looks like it’s purely a removal and there’s nothing new added…yet.  I’ll keep digging to see what I find…but for now update if you want to get rid of the snow in your Springfield!

Update #2: Reader LM reports Sideshow You is working again after the update.  Still waiting for it to hit my Android phone, once it does I’ll be able to confirm.  But for now…check your Sideshow You to see if it’s working for you once again. I can confirm it’s back to working.

Update #3: Removal Update has now hit the Google Play Store.
If you don’t see it (I didn’t) try restarting your phone.  And yes…it comes with a poem in the app store..

Springfield might look a little different to you…but that’s just your eyes getting readjusted to the green instead of the snow.  It always looks brighter after Christmas is over…

Oh and the Ice Castle does not melt! 

Update #4: Fever snowmen melt (Burns & Homer), Kwik-E-Mart is back to paying out income, the Cannon Still fires, you can store the Workshop, Tunnel & Cannon Control building.  Bunny will have a full rundown of all the changes…

Also, you cans till purchase the Small Islands.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The official clock in the game has run out….BUT you can still keep collecting bells (for now anyway).  So if you still need those last minute bells to make it to the next prize (or donut bonus) keep pushing for it.

Just remember…you’re playing on “borrowed time” now and at any minute EA can pull the event plug  on you.  So proceed with caution!

Happy Little Elf 2

What are your thoughts on the event overall?  Too long?  Too short?  Let down of prizes?  Thoughts on the 2 phases?  What do you hope comes next?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
