Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Well…after giving us a bit of the “ole’ in and out” Gil is still sticking around in Springfield for a few more days! Why? To sell you stuff you didn’t think you needed until Gil said you did!
So what’s he offering this time? Well…for a limited-time (ie until, Monday 3/16) you can purchase The Homer! The Homer 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 most epic fail of automotive history to YOUR Springfield!
Decoration: The Homer
Cost: 82 donuts
Bonus %: 3% on all cash and XP
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +820
Unique: Yes, only 1 per Springfield.
-Animated when tapped
-Offers a nice bonus%
-Comes with a small questline (2 tasks for Homer)
-Something nostalgic from the classic Simpsons era!
-It’s a bit overpriced compared to the other cars in Springfield, even when you compare it to the premium cars. (although it did cost a fortune in the episode)
-Only improves Vanity, one of the easiest Conform-O-Meter requirements to max out
Honestly, this was an instant buy for me. I didn’t really think that hard about it (In fact I got it before Gil disappeared yesterday). This is from one of my favorite episodes of The Simpsons and just screams nostalgia! That being said….it may not be for everyone. However, I will say out of all the deals Gil usually comes around with, this one is the most reasonably priced. Usually Gil doesn’t come to Springfield for anything less than 200 donuts. The short questline associated with the car is pretty funny and the bonus pay out is nice for donuts spent. So for premium players, I do think this is a good buy. Plus, if Herb joins the game later don’t you think you’ll be kicking yourself if you didn’t buy The Homer when it was available?
This one is going to be a freemium tossup in my opinion. I think it’s a decent buy (even if you’re a freemium player) but it’s going to come down to how many donuts you have and how nostalgic the car makes you feel. I know there are some die-hard Simpson fans that are freemium players that would much rather have The Homer than any of the other Superhero stuff. This is one where I’d say if you want it, go for it.
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 picked up right away. Just remember…whatever you decide this IS Limited-Time so be sure to make your decision before Gil leaves Springfield on at 0700GMT (3am EDT) on Tuesday 3/16!
