Sorry this post is a little late today. Was up late working on this and wanted to make sure I looked at it again with fresh eyes before posting. This will breakdown a lot of the who, what, where, when & how for you guys, so be sure to read it all…
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Well like many of us predicted, EA was too quiet these last few weeks so we all thought something was going to hit! And something sure did hit, a fun little summer sporting event…complete with Homer making up the rules! (is there anything better than a game where Homer makes up the rules as he goes along?)
So for this first Act (kinda funny how they’re still going with Acts, something tells me they didn’t changes the coding from Terwilligers), as always, you’ll be greeted with a questline to walk you through the game basics and help you collect more currency to earn prizes!
Note: There are some additional questlines indicated in the files that have not popped up for me. This is exactly how it played out in my game
