In-Game Update: 4th of July 2015

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just when you think you’re safe for the night..EA pulls you back in!  It’s the 4th of July in Springfield!  We certainly didn’t think EA would forget about Independence Day in Springfield but honestly, I thought this would hit tomorrow (Wednesday)…so my apologies this is a bit late.  Was settled in for the night watching USA soccer!


Anywho…we’ve got ourselves a little 4th of July update, inside Tap Ball!

As always we’ll be back with more info once we go through it, but for now know that it should auto-start for you with some dialogue from Homer… Continue reading “In-Game Update: 4th of July 2015”

Where Did THAT Come From – Sportacus & Football Nelson

Hey hey tap ballers! In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where did THAT Come From?

Tap Ball Prize Guide: Act 1, Prize 1 Homertron

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Are you ready for some Tap Ball!? Tap Ball is the newest sensation sweeping the streets of Springfield.  A game invented by our very own Homer J Simpson!  In the First “Act” of the Tap Ball Event (funny they’re called Acts, really they should be called Periods like Hockey.  Oh EA, it thought you knew sports 😉 ) you’ll unlock Referee Homer, Soccer Lisa, Pin Pal Apu, Build a Stadium (with a little help from Duff, the Kwik-E-Mart, Costington’s and Stupid Flanders) and challenge your friends and neighbors to some friendly Tap Ball competitions!

This Event is broken up into 3 Acts (again, should be called Periods EA…), with each Act containing part of the story.  To help you move along with the event you’ll get several prizes per Act.  Each prize will either be something fun for Springfield or something to help you move along in the event.  For the First Act you’re tasked with collecting Foam Fingers (ico_june2015_foamfingers_01) to unlock each prize!  The First Act 1 prize awarded at 1,900 ico_june2015_foamfingers_01 is the Homertron, a new state of the art scoreboard for your Stadium!
