Hey Howdy Hey Crime Stopping Tappers!
It’s Superhero time in Springfield! And there’s a new “superhero” in Springfield to help clean up crime! Fruit Bat-Man has arrived! While he’s a fairly new addition to The Simpsons (original Episode aired in 2013) many of you have been asking just when he’d be brought back to Springfield…well he’s finally here! Now I know many of you are trying to decide if this winded superhero is worth YOUR donuts, but don’t sweat it! We’re here to help you decide what’s worth the donuts and what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add Fruit Bat-Man to YOUR Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this senior citizen crusader to YOUR Springfield!
Character/Skins: Fruit Bat-Man
Donut Price: 90 Donuts
Originally Released: 2013, during the Dark Knight Court Episode tie-in. And yes, when he was originally released he was premium for the same 90 donuts.
-Premium skin earns 50% more cash and XP on all Jobs
-Can help attack Felons, in fact he’ll attack a felon in 3hrs
-Comes with a questline
-Returning costume from the early days of TSTO, a chance for newer players to pick it up.
-A skin for Mr. Burns, not an independent character. So you’ll have to have Mr. Burns available to use.
-Doesn’t come with a building/decoration
-Does not have a event currency earning task, beyond attacking a Felon. So if you have no Felons available in your town…he won’t earn event currency.
This one, in my opinion, is a premium toss-up. If you’re a completionest this is one you’ve probably been looking forward to EA bringing back for a while (I know a few of you who couldn’t wait for this one), however if you don’t really feel an attachment to the character you may want to pass on it. Still lots of cool things coming to the game & this one doesn’t add a tremendous benefit to the Superhero Event, beyond attacking Felons. So if you weren’t instantly wanting this one, I’d say pass on it.
For the record….I do own Fruit Bat-Man and have had him since he originally was released. So I purchased him way back then when there was no event for him to benefit (I just thought he was cool)
I’d pass on this one. It may be tempting, since he’s from way back in 2013 and this is the first time they’ve brought him back, but I’d still pass if I were a freemium player. Your donuts are better spent on Spider Pig or Bartman. Pass on Fruit Bat-Man and save those sprinkles for something better….
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 I’ve purchased him way back when he first came out! However, whatever you decide remember this is a limited-time item and will disappear when the event ends. So make sure you make your final decision before March 31st or he’ll disappear from the store!
