Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Everyone’s favorite down on his luck salesman is back in Springfield! Yes, that’s right Old Gil has returned to our towns and this time he’s got an insane deal!
Yes, during this Superheroes Sequel Gil is pushing an insane asylum…because hey Felons need to go somewhere right?
This deal hit our games overnight, sorry I was busy snoozing…so let’s take a look at what happened while I was sleeping…
So when you first logged into your pocket sized Springfields this morning you may have noticed Gil waving his arms around (like he just don’t care) trying to get your attention. (me, me…ooo call on me!) ..kinda like this:
Either he’s trying to get your attention, or he’s moonlighting as a football ref.
Anyway….when you finally decide to tap on Old Gil he’ll give you his latest pitch for something you really don’t need, kinda like those people that call your house trying to get you to switch to “more affordable” energy…even though in the end you’ll pay 10x what you currently pay.
So now that I’ve gone completely off the rails…back to what Gil’s latest sales pitch…
Gil: Superheroes, today I have something that I am sure you will AB-SO-LU-TELY love!
Pie Man: A boatload of donuts on sale? (way to look out for us Addicts Pie Man)
Fallout Boy: A superhero’s utility belt?
Gil: No sorry, I was told not to do the first one ever again and the second would cost more to manufacture than I’m worth.
Pie Man: I hear ya.
Fallout Boy: …
Gil: I have something much much better! What about the Springfield Home for the Criminally Different?!
Fallout Boy: The what? That doesn’t sound like something we’d love to have in Springfield.
Gil: It’s a lunatic asylum, and it’s EXACTLY what superheroes are looking for… Did I mention that in the last ten months escapes are up 150% and that 75% of staff members end up as residents and visa versa? How can you possibly beat that?
And if you refuse the deal…
Gil: Can’t blame you for not wanting to add some zip-zam-zoom to your gloomy life. Probably afraid of the dark corners and the constant sounds of screaming…
And if you accept…
Gil: Good doing business with you, pally. Everyone needs friends and you and these loonies are gonna end up fast ones.
And here’s everyone’s favorite…the Should I Buy portion of this post….
Building: Springfield Asylum
Donut Price: 200 Donuts
Conform-O-Meter: Obedience +20
Leaves Stores on June 29th….
-Comes with a questline, 1 part
-Animated when in use, lights flicker
-Spawns 1 group of “super” felons to battle every 4hrs. These “super” felons have a lifeline of 5 hearts.
-Milhouse will have a 2hr task there after the questline is over
Freemium or Premium:
Don’t waste your donuts on this one. It’s absurdly priced for what it is/does. You don’t need extra Felons in your town, you’ll unlock all of the prizes without this. (especially since the 3 groups that spawn from the Alley are more than enough for many of you with the heroes you have.)
Save your donuts, save your time…save your sanity. Avoid this one.
I know there are some of you who will buy this anyway…Ryan…but for the rest of you. Save your donuts. Don’t give into Gil. He’ll be ok if you skip this one….
Of course in the end we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do, the final decision is up to you. But I can tell you this is not in my Springfield, nor will it be in the near future. Whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our stores on June 29th….
Here’s a look at the short questline that comes with it….
A Lovely Lunatic Lunch
Bart: Dare you to go in the asylum Milhouse!
Milhouse: I double dare you to go into it!
Bart: I’d triple dare you but I’m unsure of numbers after that so let’s just draw straws.
Milhouse: Okay. Aww the short straw?! Alright, call the police if I’m not out in 5 minutes.
Make Milhouse Enter the Asylum- 2hrs, Earns $175, 40xp
Milhouse: Bart! You’d never believe what I saw in the asylum!
Bart: You were in there for 4 hours!
Milhouse: I know! The patients were so entertaining. We played escape games from these white jackets and something called loboto-me!
And that’s it my friends, the full rundown, and Should You Buy, for the Asylum….
What are your thoughts on the asylum? Will you be skipping it? Or do you do you have donuts burning a hole in your pocket? If you purchased, where have you placed it in your Springfield? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you.
