Update Alissa 3/12/15 11am EDT: Gil is back once again…as is The Homer. It’s once again available for purchase in your store…
Note: Make sure you get another in-game update download screen. If you don’t see it, hard close and restart TSTO.
UPDATE BUNNY: We do not know if it is due to the major issues with Apple Market Down or something else, but Gil was pulled from the game again. For those that bought the car and had it taken away (mine is still there) please contact EA right away if your donuts were taken and not returned.
In the meantime, we will keep an eye out to see if the Gil Deal makes a return.
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
We interrupt your Superheros tapping to bring you….”The Homer”!
Our old friend Gil is back in Springfield and this time he’s selling “The Homer” Car! How awesome is that?
This is an in game update that will hit your devices bringing Gil back to Springfield! Note: I had to hard close and restart TSTO to see the update, so if you’re not seeing it try hard closing and restarting TSTO…
So just what’s the deal this time? Let’s take a look…
For those that don’t remember “The Homer” is the car Homer created for his brother Herb Powell….could this mean Herb is coming soon? I certainly hope so!
When you tap on Gil in your town he’ll start up some dialogue:
Gil: Powerful like a gorilla, yet soft and yielding like a Nerf Ball. This car’ll get ya anywhere you want to go!
Homer: No way!
Gil: Yes way! Also, it was design by a former metal patient! And believe me, it shows!
So for 82 donuts you can own this epic failure!
If you purchase it you’ll see…
Gil: Congratulations on your purchase. Did I mention it comes with somebody’s garage door opener?
If you decide against it you’ll see…
Gil: This deathtrap of a car is going to be the ruin of old Gil!
If you don’t purchase it you’ll still be able to access it from your store menu (or from Gil walking around)..
Here are a few quick specs on “The Homer”:
The Homer is 5×3 in size. It’s an animated decoration, when you tap on it the lights flash. Also, it adds a 3% bonus to all cash and XP
Don’t worry we’ll have a full breakdown on the Pros and Cons of purchasing “The Homer” soon…
If you decide to purchase it…keep Homer free because he will have a small questline with it:
Homer’s Homer Pt. 1
Homer: Now that’s a stupid looking car! Who the hell designed this piece of crap?
Lisa: That was you dad.
Homer: This car is beautiful
Lisa: Dad, I’m concerned as to why you don’t remember this.
Homer: Yeah, that’s a read head-scratcher, Lisa.
Make Homer Drink Beer- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Homer’s Homer Pt. 2
Homer: Hey Lisa, what moron would put me in charge of designing a car?
Lisa: Your brother.
Homer: I figured it would have to be someone related to me. Also, I have a brother?
Lisa: Yes! Well, half brother. His name was Herb, and he let you design your dream car… which subsequently drove him into financial ruin.
Homer: Doesn’t ring a bell.
Lisa: That’s a horrible thing to forget! What if I told you I forgot about Bart?
Lisa: Just call your brother.
Make Homer Give Herb a Call- 1hr, Earns $70, 17xp
Homer: Hey, Herbie. It’s your illegitimate half brother, Homer Simpson. Sorry we lost touch, buddy.
Herb: It’s been over twenty years since you called, so your apology really changes everything.
Homer: You sound just like Marge when she accepts my apologies.
Now….time for a little speculation. This Addict (along with Bunny) both think this means we could see Herb in the very near future! How awesome would that be?
What do you think of Gil’s deal? Will you be purchasing it? What do you think about Herb coming to Springfield? Do you think we’ll be seeing him? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
