Hey there Hoppereenos!
Sorry for the delay. Gotta love traffic!
There is a New Gil Deal in the game. I Scream! You Scream! We ALL Scream! FOR ICE CREAM! Ice Cream Homer is in our games, WOOHOO!!
THIS IS LIMITED TIME! GOES AWAY IN LESS THAN 6 DAYS!!
To start, you will need to make sure you are Up To Date on the App from your App Market to ensure you see all the content and have the patches necessary.
Additional warning, some Players reporting the game crashing as well with the Update. Looking into that a bit more. Additional note: It seems this is hitting more iOS6 and iOS devices. Cuavsfan has started a Forum Thread on it. Feel free to light it up with your comments.
Back with more details on the offer in just a bit.
When you first pop into your game after it is fully up to date, you will see Gil roaming your streets with a Fudgesicle Icon over his head. Tapping on it will trigger the dialog…
Gil: Used truck for sale! Used man selling a used truck!
Homer: Not interested.
Gil: I’ll clean all the half-melted ice cream out of the back. I’ll wreak havoc on my sciatica, but what choice do I have?
Homer: Half melted! Ice Cream! Sciatica! Wait, not the last one. But those first ones… SOLD!
The offer will then Pop Up on the Screen.
Ice Cream Homer w/Ice Cream Truck: 120 Donuts.
If you do not take the offer…
Gil: It’s me isn’t it? It couldn’t be the ice cream, because who doesn’t like ice cream? But everybody doesn’t like ol’ Gil.
The offer will then be moved into your Main Menu Screen.
If you take the offer and place the Ice Cream Truck in your Springfield…
Ice Cream Truck: Is a Decoration, but animated when tapped. The lights flash, engine rumbles, and smoke shoots from the tail pipe. It also plays some Ice Cream Man Music, followed by “Product contains neither Ice or Cream.”
Gil: I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!
Gil: Also I scream at the nightmares brought on by the sadness of my horrible life.
You will then see the Pop Up for Ice Cream Man Homer’s Outfit. You will have to play through the Questline to unlock it. More on the Questline in another post.
Homer will start the Questline for “Ice Cream Man Cometh.”
For whatever reason, EA swapped out Fat Tony for Snake in LA Body Works. Task name remains the same, but Snake is now in that spot. Looking into it, but this may be permanent.
There you have it. Now I am REALLY craving some Ice Cream. Thanks a lot EA. Ben & Jerry’s Tonight Dough is calling my name now. 😉
What do you think of this Gil Deal? Are you going to pick it up? Did you already? Unlocked Ice Cream Man Homer yet? Let us know.
