Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Gil’s back in Springfield! This time he’s peddling premium items with a rebate. Some old and some are new, but all are offered at a discount! So bust open those piggy banks because Gil’s tempting us all with this deal.
Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything because it’ll be gone soon. But don’t sweat it! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add the Street Cleaner to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding things street legal Roomba to your town.
Bundle: Street Cleaner
Donut Cost: 90 Donuts with a 35 Donut Rebate, so a Net Donut cost of 55 Donuts
Bonus %: None
Conform-O-Meter Impact: None
What Does It Do: Like an NPC. It will ride around the streets of Springfield…”cleaning” them
Leaves stores on
Sunday April 17th, Tuesday April 19th, at 0800 GMT. Sorry guys my mistake. I didn’t check the timer before I purchased it…thankfully I have C & D games I can double check 😉
-Drives automatically on the street
-Does not earn any additional cash
-Does not offer any additional bonuses
-Small in size. (height wise, can be hard to see)
-It’s basically as useless as a Mutant Vegetable from Terwilligers
Premium or Freemium:
Look, this is one of those stupid items that many of us will blow donuts on for no reason other than it’s cool. Seriously this sweeper offers absolutely no value to Springfield other than it’s the first “vehicle” (or anything really) that can go on the roads. And it actually drives around. It’s seriously one of the coolest things this game has ever offered.
So if you’re premium or freemium…I recommend getting it strictly because it’s cool. Otherwise, both parties should pass because it offers absolutely no value to your town.
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 grabbed this one, immediately. I seriously think it’s just really cool. Whatever you decide just make sure you do it before the house leaves our games on April 17th…or you might miss out on this one.
What are your thoughts on the Street Sweeper? Will you be picking it up? Or did you already? Thoughts on Gil’s rebate deal? Anything you’re looking forward to unlocking so you can buy? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
Some of you have mentioned you purchased the sweeper and you can’t find it. Check around your Springfield because it is fairly small and moves around the streets. If you don’t see it, contact EA.
