Should I Spend Donuts On the Basketball Court?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Because all Superheroes need a sequel…Superheroes 2 has found its way into our pocket sized Springfields!  This super event hit our devices…and with it arrived a whole new Event to make us scratch our heads, and drive us slightly insane. So it’s time to break out those donuts for their super hideouts because there’s a whole store full of superhero inspired premium items!

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 Basketball Court to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this jet propelled court to your town.

3

Building/Decoration: Basketball Court
Donut Price: 60 Donuts
Bonus %: 2.5%
Size: 6×11
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +200

Leaves stores on June 28th 

Pros:
-Really cool animated decoration…when tapped a Jet appears from below the court
-Comes with a short questline, 1 part
-Decent bonus %, not the greatest for donuts spent but decent.

Cons:
-No character interaction
-While it comes with a questline, it’s a short questline (1 part) and it’s not a character task.  Just tap on the court.

Final Thought:
Premium:
I like this one.  It’s cool looking, has a fun animation (the jet will appear for about 10 seconds before going back into the floor of the court).  I would say this is a good premium item to pick up.  Decent bonus %…and it’s just cool.

Freemium:
This is one i’m on the fence with in the freemium perspective.  I think it’s a fun decoration, with a decent bonus %….so if you like it and think it would make a fun addition to your Springfield pick it up.  Otherwise, save your donuts.

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do.  And I can tell you I’ll probably be picking this one up.  Of course whatever you decide just remember this item is limited time and will be leaving our games (the store) on Tuesday June 28th.  So just make sure you make your final decision before it’s gone from our stores.

Here’s a look at the questline that comes with it…

Homer: Nice new basketball court Mr. Burns!
Mr. Burns: Foolish Simpson!  I haven’t exercised since James Naismith and I hung the first peach basket.  This court is for much more than basket-ed ball.

  1. I like it but Im gonna have to pass on this one. Theres still a lot of time in the event and Im waiting to see what else comes out. I prefer getting premium characters. I did get Citizen Solar and Wind Lad.

  2. I bought it because some day I might Wish I had. There have been more than a few items in that category that wasn’t in my inventory and I’ve kicked myself for not buying. Do I think this will come back in another event or Gil buy? Maybe, maybe not but I won’t have to worry about it.

  3. It’s cool and everything, but it doesn’t strike me as a must-have. If it had come out before Tap Ball filled my high school area with various sports things, I probably would have been more tempted.

  4. Still need a little work on making it fit in but it’s fun. I haven’t seen this in anyone else’s town can you activate it in a neighbor town?

    1. Unfortunately you can…

      I say ‘unfortunately’ because once I saw it in action I couldn’t resist it! 😊😊😊

      I’m sure once the novelty wears off I won’t tap it more then 8 or 9 times a day…
      😄😄😄

    2. Personally I think it fits good right near the Burn’s Summer Mansion since it makes it appear as an underground extension of that. Like Fruit-bat-man flies out from it when he gets the bat signal, even though that’s not how it was in the show.

  5. As soon as I saw it had a bonus (and a decent one, at that), this was an instant buy. I don’t even care about the jet (though I don’t mind it), I just wanted the basketball court. After all, the 33 in my name was my number, from playing basketball back in the day. 🏀😃

    1. That a valid reason.
      I bought Number 51 after seeing him in the Stonecutters episode. He gave a spit take Homer style. Only such a waist of a good cup of espresso.

    2. no lie, i thought the 33 was supposed to be EE, and your name was a play on david bowie…..

      haha, i can’t help but laugh at my misinterpretation now.

      1. That is really funny! I’m not that big of a fan of Ziggy Stardust…nor am I that clever. You’re the second person to have misinterpreted my name. BigPhil thought it was Davidboss. I gotta say, yours makes more sense. Sorry, BP. 😃

      1. Well, I’ll be honest with you, my Chinese is a little rusty. But “rise rise” can work on the basketball court, too! 😀

  6. Picked it up after seeing in a neighbors town goes nicely in my space are, like the hidden plane.

  7. As a freemium player, I’m on the fence. It’s cool and comes with a bonus %, but it’ll also wipe my donut count to zero. Still thinking that I’ll pick it up, but haven’t pulled the trigger just yet.

  8. Those lift engines look like they’re supposed to swivel, but there’s no way for them to as drawn, and being fixed in that position would create a ton of drag.

  9. I was really bummed when I could only get one. As soon as I tapped it, I immediately went back to the store for another one….. I was sorely disappointed

  10. I like to get one fun decoration from each event. I got the quicksand from the Wild West event, and Devil Flanders from the chili cookoff.
    I snapped this up as soon as I saw what it did 🙂

    1. Yeah, the initial picture in the store just showed the court; they added the VTOL later.

      1. I’ve only been playing this game two years, but honestly most of the things they offer for sale the last few events seem like a three day old garage sale. You know, only the stuff that didn’t sell “yet” but hopefully before it’s over on Sunday. Kind of nice, but overpriced. All the good items were offered a year ago or more.
