Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Level 56 hit our devices last week and with it arrived a fun blast from Simpson’s past….Springfield Gorge and Daredevil Bart! 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 Springfield Gorge to YOUR Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this daring combo to YOUR Springfield!
Building/Decoration: Springfield Gorge
Character/Costume: Daredevil Bart
Donut Price: 250 donuts
Bonus %: 5% bonus on all cash and XP
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +1,000
Level Requirement: Must be at Level 56, unless offered Early Access when the update first hit. (If you’re not at Level 56 and received Early Access, don’t worry this WILL return to your store once you hit Level 56. So don’t panic about buying it)
-Comes with a quest line
-Premium costume for Bart, which earns 50% more on all cash and xp than a freemium character
-Nice bonus % offered (although not the best in the game)
-Unlocks a GREAT task for Homer at the Gorge once the questline is done.
-Only 1 outdoor task for Daredevil Bart
-The Gorge is MASSIVE in size…
This is one of those…it’s crazy expensive but premium players have to have it…items. Almost everything goes wrong with this item (it’s crazy expensive, no new character, it’s massive..) BUT it’s a classic Simpson’s item AND unlocks a sweet visual task for Homer from said episode. It’s really hard to resist. Premium players this is one I say pickup provided you have the space and the donuts. HOWEVER….I would wait a bit to get it and see what else may hit our games in the coming days. This item isn’t going anywhere, as it’s part of the Level 56 update, so there’s no rush to grab it.
Freemium players this is one you may want to take a pass on. I know it’s a classic item, but it’s insanely expensive. And when donuts are hard to come by, there are much better combos you can pick up for much less than this combo. So as a premium player, I’d pass on this one.
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 purchasing this at some point, but it’ll probably be a little while before it hits my Springfield. However, this is NOT a Limited-Time Item so take your time with your thought process. The Gorge will still be there in a few weeks. So if you’re on the fence or worried about saving up your donuts relax..there’s no rush to get it.
