Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
The Terwilligers are making their way back into Springfield! And with this event there are a bunch of new premium items in our stores for purchase, and just yesterday several premium items made their way back into our stores for a limited-time. While many of them were returning items, there were two new items to hit our stores, the Rad-ish Station and the Pet Mutant Seedling. Now I know you may be trying to decide if this is worth YOUR donuts, but don’t sweat it! We’re here to tell you what’s worth the donuts and what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add the Rad-ish Station or Pet Mutant Seedling to YOUR Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these items to YOUR Springfield!
Character: Pet Mutant Seedling
Donut Price: 40 Donuts
Honestly, I love this one. The little Jelly Blob makes me giggle and the fact that he comes with a short 2 part questline is an added bonus. Normally I’m against NPCs, but this one is just fun and makes me giggle. If you’re a premium player and have the donuts to spend & get a giggle when you see the little Mutant Seedling hopping around your town…pick this one up 🙂
I think this one is a freemium pass. While I love it as a premium player, I do know that for freemium players donuts are hard to come by. And I do think there are better items you can get with your hard earned sprinkles…so as a freemium player I’d pass on this one…
Here’s a look at the short little questline that pops up if you purchase the Mutant Seedling…
Weed ‘n’ Feed Pt. 1
Lisa: Dad, can I keep this mutant seedling as a pet? Can I can I can I!?!
Homer: What does it eat and where does it poop?
Lisa: Well, it’s a plant. So it eats dirt and poops fresh air.
Homer: Fine, you can keep it. But you’re cleaning up the fresh air.
Tap Pet Mutant Seedling
Lisa: Huh. It doesn’t seem very friendly.
Bart: Give it time. Remember when I got my elephant Stampy? I don’t know how many times it trampled Dad before it got used to him.
Homer: And it didn’t hurt me one little…blort.
Weed ‘n’ Feed Pt. 2
Lisa: I’ve tried feeding this mutant seedling everything! It’s even a pickier eater than I am.
Bart: Plants remove bad gases from the atmosphere, right? How about I fart at it.
Lisa: I just have to come up with the perfect blend of organic materials. Finally, a use for my years of self-righteous organic gardening blog posts!
Make Lisa Compost- 2hrs, Earns $110, 27xp
Lisa: Dad, I’ve credited the perfect compost for the little seedling to eat.
Homer: I don’t think he’s hungry any more. I was trying to open a beer can with my teeth, because my other hand was also holding a beer can…And I cut myself. The little guy started licking my blood up as happy as could be!
Lisa: Dad, did you ever see the movie “Little Shop of Horrors?!”
Homer: If it did have a car driving out of a helicopter, I didn’t see it.
Lisa: I’m just saying, maybe we should drop this mutant off at the Vegetable Shelter.
Building/Decoration: Rad-ish Station
Donut Price: 200 Donuts
Bonus %: 5% bonus on all cash and XP
Conform-O-Meter: Tree-Hugging +10
Where Can I Place It?: Grass/Pavement/Beach/Boardwalk
Size: 4×4, floats over Springfield. So only the 4×4 square is required.
Unique?: Yes, only 1 per Springfield
-Comes with a 2 part Questline
-Nice bonus %
-Basically a remake of the Rad-Station
-A Giant decoration, no character interaction (After questline) and does not earn income.
Honestly, for me…this is a pass. Even as a premium player. I just think it’s overpriced for what it is/what it does. So in my mind, as a premium player, this is one to pass on….
You guess it…this is a complete freemium pass for me. Not worth the 200 sprinkles to add this to your town. So freemium players, save your donuts and pass on this one.
Here’s a look at the questline that comes with it…
The Other Other White Meat Pt. 1
Lisa: You know, I feel sorry for Bob’s vegetable clones. They never asked to be created and now they’re being exploited to point of extinction.
Homer: I never asked to have to eat everything I see, but there you have it.
Frink: FrinkCo, in association with the Monsarno Corporation, has developed a habitat where the clones will be safe. I supplied the idea, Monsarno supplied the funding.
Cecil: And we’ll be keeping the profits.
Frink: Talk about exploitation!
Place the Rad-ish Station
Wait for Lisa to finish Raise Mutant Awareness- 6hrs, Earns 4225, 55xp
Frink: Pretty radical-ish, isn’t it? Once again, science has produced a convoluted and dangerous solution to a complicated and perilous problem it created. Gotta love science.
The Other Other White Meat Pt. 2
Frink: The Rad-ish Station is operational! Now, you merely need to herd the mutant vegetables on board.
Lisa: They seem kind of reluctant.
Frink: We’ll have to tempt them with these bowls of sour cream dip, with no raw vegetable can resist.
Lisa: Promise me one thing: this isn’t some sneaky plan to sell them all to Krusty Burger.
Frink: Perish the thought. Or should I say “Rad-ish the thought”? Nnn-ha! Nnn-ha! No, I shouldn’t.
Make Springfielders Herd Mutant Vegetables- x15. Send 15 Springfielders to Herd Mutant Vegetables. 2hrs. Earns $110, 27xp Freemium and $175, 40xp Premium
Bart: Where’s Homer?
Lisa: On the Rad-ish Station, drinking bowls of sour cream dip.
The Other Other White Meat Pt. 3
Frink: The mutant vegetable clones are loving the Rad-ish station, just as the simulation predicted.
Lisa: What simulation is that?
Frink: A freemium game I play on my phone where a bunch of mutant clones were introduced in an update and then there was a rad-ish station.
Lisa: That is so confusing. And you’re positive you’re not giving the mutant vegetables to Krusty Burger?
Frink: Absolutely not.
Krusty: Because he’s not giving them to me, he’s selling them to me!
Lisa: I knew it! I knew there’d be a nasty twist.
Krusty: Hey, you’re the one who’s always demanding a fresh vegetarian option at Krusty Burger.
Lisa: Well those days are over.
Make Lisa Protest Against a Fresh Vegetarian Option at Krusty Burger- 1hr, Earns $70, 17xp
Krusty: It’s no good protesting, Lisa. People love eating these mutant clones. They combine the health benefits of vegetables with delicious flavor of things that think.
The Other Other White Meat Pt. 4
Lisa: Professor Frink, you have to do something. The Rad-ish Station is being used to trap sentient vegetables to feed smug health-conscious consumers.
Frink: Fear not. The Station is completely independent and self-powered. By merely flipping this switch, we can make the Station activate its defensive measures, leaving the mutant vegetables sealed off forever from all danger. However, the consequences for humanity may be extremely dire, and–
Lisa: Flipping it!
Make Lisa Flip the Switch- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Lisa: I locked down the Rad-ish Station. Now what happens?
Frink: Well, the mutant vegetables will continue to evolve, safe from interference by the outside world. Eventually they will achieve sentience greater than ours, and then they will emerge from the Station. They probably won’t be too pleased with humanity. But luckily you and I will be long dead by then.
Lisa: And if not?
Frink: Then we’ll be short dead right now.
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’ll be getting the Pet Mutant Seedling but passing on the Rad-ish Station. However, whatever you decide just remember that these two will be leaving our stores when the Terwilliger Event ends so if you’re thinking about it getting either of them make sure you make your final decisions before the event ends or you’ll miss your chance.
