Note from Alissa: This is one of those posts we’ve had sitting in drafts for a LONG while, but events kept pushing back the need for this to go up. Plus many of you barely have had a chance to touch Krustyland recently. So now that we’ve got a little downtime in the game and figure many of you are taking advantage of the time to redesign Springfield and K-Land, we figured it’s a great time to refresh our minds of the menu changes in Krustyland. (Remember we discussed the changes for Springfield here…).
Bunny here. Putting on my glasses, getting out my pocket protector, and getting my magic fingers and thumbs ready to type those zeroes and ones. Basically…it’s Nerdy Time!!
For whatever various reasons, our game likes to frak with our minds and heads and nothing seems to quite go right. We panic. Throw our device. Scream. Yell. There may be many tears as well. Just slowly take your thumbs/fingers off the device or you may crack the screen. Lol. It’s ok. I am here to help. All of us are. Promise.
Due to all the Questions we keep getting on Menus, I figured a quick refresher would be helpful.
In this post, I will be going over the basics of using the Newer Krustyland Menu EA put into our games in November. Help you find and locate items easier and make sense of it all. So sit back as we dive on in.
There are a lot of cool new changes to the Menus now and it can be kind of overwhelming to try and find information. To help, I am going to break down each icon section to make a bit more sense of where everything is tucked away now and how you can find it.
Now that you are in the realm of the Clown, in your game in the lower right corner is the Hammer and Saw icon. This is your Krustyland Menu. Tap on it to bring up the Menu Pop Up Screen. (THIS IS NOT THE INVENTORY.)
Once inside the Menu Pop Up Screen aka “The Store”, you will see a basic layout. On the left, 3 icons of Main Items. Characters, Buildings, and Decorations. Right along side of them an arrow that when swiped will open all the icons.
In the upper left corner is the Back Button.
In the upper right corner are two Feature areas.
The Movie Clips Video Camera Icon (Cut Scenes). That will let you rewatch the lil videos from the very start of the game.
The Settings Cog Wheel Icon (Options). This is where you can adjust the in game volume, Character/Sound Effects volume, Push Notifications, set Confirm Donut Spend, Language, and more.
Now that you have the basic outline, let’s look into The Store Menu a little bit more in details of what you will see when you tap on them. These sections will vary on where YOU are in walkthroughs and what YOU have/have not purchased. Also keep in mind that many items will be in MORE than one place. So tap on that arrow and drag it across your screen to open up ALL the icons.
Krustyland Path & Land Icon (Land & Roads). This is where you will find the Land Expansion icon to purchase land if any is currently available. It is also where you can locate one of the places to Krustyland Paths for the park.
Pavillion Tent & Park Bench Icon (Miscellany). This is where they tucked stuff that just didn’t fit in the other categories. You can find things like cars, Grabage Cans, fountains, benches, and many other just random items.
On a side note, you will also see icons under the pop up. One to take you back to the other menus and one with a Homer Golden Statue.
Homer Golden Statue (Character Sets). If you are curious of what all has been released into the game vs what YOU have in the game, this is the place to go. It will show ALL the Character sets from ALL events and releases. You can see what ones you have completed and what ones you did not.
That about breaks down the Krustyland Main Menu and the Categories inside of it. Keep an eye out for other Menu Posts.
As always, we are here to help in anyway we can. (I even try to harass…errr…I mean contact EA on our readers behalf to see if there is anything more I can find out too.) Just keep hanging in there. Changes happen. We will all get used to it eventually. 😉
