Should I Spend Donuts On the Murderhorn?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s getting sporty in Springfield!  With the 2015 Tap Ball Event loads of new sports related decorations and buildings have been introduced in our stores.  During Act 3 of the event the Murderhorn has arrived in our stores. 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 Murderhorn to YOUR Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this mountain to YOUR Springfield!

Decoration: Murderhorn
Donut Price:
250 Donuts
Bouns %: 
5% bonus on all cash and xp
Size:
14×14
Conform-O-Meter Impact: 
Tree-hugging +2500

Pros
-Comes with a funny, short questline and 1 time use task for Homer
-Neat looking design.
-Decent bonus % offered with it
-From a classic Simpsons episode (way back in Season 9)

Cons
-EXTREMELY pricey for what it is/does
-No animation
-Homer’s task is only one time, after that it’ll sit useless in your Springfield.

Final Thought:
Premium:
Personally I don’t think this is worth the donuts.  If it paid event currency or the task was permanent, I’d think it was a little more worth it…but as it stands I think it’s a pass.   Unless of course you really love this episode and have no problem dropping 250 donuts for the mountain (and have the perfect spot for it, because it is massive!)

Freemium:
Stay away from this one in my opinion.  Just not worth the donuts for what it is/what it does.

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 will be passing on this one.  In my mind, it’s just not worth it.  Whatever you decide, just remember it is limited time, so if you’re thinking about getting it make sure you do before Act 3 ends or you’ll miss your chance!

Here’s a look at the dialogue that pops up:

Is So Mountain High Enough
Homer starts

 

Homer: Hey, look!  A mountain just appeared out of nowhere.  That’s…normal, right?
Grampa: Cripes!  I’ve gotten pretty used to entire buildings being erected in 24 hours.   And it certainly makes sense that construction can be completed instantaneously if you lob some donuts at the building site.  But a whole mountain?  Son, I gotta admit.  This one scares me.
Homer: You hear that, Sky Finger?  You scared an old man.  Nice going.  You just had to splash some premium currency around, didn’t ya?  Couldn’t bear to leave a single item un-purchased.
Grampa: Now, son.  You should thank the Sky Finger for spending its hard-earned money–
Homer: No!  I’m through kowtowing to the whales!  Do you know what it’s like to live in a town that’s constantly changing?  When I look out the window, I never know what I’m going to see!  Maybe there’ll be some massive new stadium where Moe’s used to be.  Or maybe a thousand identical blue houses will be crammed up against my backyard fence!  I can’t take it any more!!!!  Just stop already!!!!
Grampa: Son…if the whales stop buyin’ stuff, EA will pull the plug on this whole thing tomorrow.  They ain’t running a charity.  Then you, me and everyone we know just ceases to exist.  Poof!
Homer: …Uh…hey there, Sky Finger.  How we doing?  Listen…about what I said before… Just a joke, all right?  We love our whales.  Really.  You guys are the most special, wonderful, world-paying-for folks in the whole universe.  So what’d say we kick the tires on your latest purchase?  Let me at that Murderhorn!
Make Homer Climb Murderhorn Again- 20hrs, Earns 20ico_june2015_amateurbucks_md, 200xp
Homer: Hey, look–a yeti.
Yeti: *ROAR*
Lenny: Watch out, Homer!  Them snow abominables will eat anything that moves!
Homer: Lenny, this is a video game.  I could eat HIM if I felt like it.  In fact, I AM kind of hungry.
Yeti: *Extremely worried noise*
Lenny: ….Oh my heavens, you did it!  You ate an entire yeti.  I can’t believe what I just saw.
Homer: Mmmm…mythical creature.  Anyway, it seemed like the easiest way to wrap this mission up.  Now…on to the next thing!
