10/5 In-Game Update: Patches Galore! (Hideaway Bonus % & Monster Timer FIXED)

NOTE: it looks like the has FINALLY hit the UK Kindle stores…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a quick note…a short while ago EA released a server side patch in our games.  This patch..RESTORES THE BONUS % FOR THE BEACH HIDEAWAYS!  Yes, now it’s back to paying the 20% per hideaway (if fully upgraded).

This patch has also, it appears, corrected the Monster Timer Glitch.  Thank goodness because it was getting old!

I’m checking to see if anything else change, those were the two I noticed right away.

So thank you EA for fixing the issues quickly.  Although it’s frustrating they were there to begin with….

But in the end…I guess my angry socks worked 😉

Addicts Question Corner: Halloween Act 1 & Glitch Round Up

IMPORTANT: DO NOT HARD CLOSE YOUR GAME (meaning shut down the app)!  Hard closing impacts the Monster Timer…hopefully EA fixes this soon…

Note: ALL of the Halloween Event Posts Can Be Found On the Halloween Event Page Here

NOTICE #2– this one from Patric–
There is a patch coming from a mini-update that will return your XP % Back to Pre-Glitch levels. Close and restart, if you haven’t seen it. Post here.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

I get it…a lot of you are angry.  Your frustrated.  Your game isn’t working right.  You feel cheated.  You’re mad as hell and you’re not going to take it anymore.  I get it, I really do.  I’m angry too.  I even wore my Angry socks today…

Hopefully that at least made you crack a smile..or even a little laugh…(and yes, those are the socks I’m wearing today…those are indeed my feet lol)

Issues/Bugs/Glitches/Problems/Lack of Game to download….are not new issues for this game.  And if you’ve been playing as long as I (or Wookiee, or Bunny, Or Patric) have, you’ll know we see them all the time.  And well..

They suck.

It sucks when it happens.  We hate when y’all are impacted by them…even more we hate when we’re impacted by them.  (Wookiee’s currently experiencing one of his own…again)

So let’s compile a list of all the issues and tackle some of your burning (get it..because of the angry socks hahaha) questions and see if we can put our colletive minds at ease.  (as well as hold EA’s feet to the fire to fix some of these bugs…)

Included in this post are…
-Game Lockout (your ID/Password doesn’t work)
-Missing Acorn Kirk
-Monster Timer Issue
-Downloaded the update, don’t see any changes
-Missing from Kindle markets
-Spawn rates
-Neighbor actions
And more!

Turbo Tappin’ Halloween 2016: Act 1

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Our games have turned dark, the water is mucky and the trees have changed colors….it must be Halloween in Springfield!

The Halloween Event hit our devices yesterday afternoon and with it arrived, not only various monsters invading our pocket-sized Springfields, but a whole new questline to work our way through!

As was mentioned on the rundown post Act 1 runs until October 18th, and you’ll need Homer and Lisa free for a variety of 6s tasks to get things started.

Remember, the questline is there to guide you.  So when you get stuck on something, or haven’t unlocked something, just follow along with the questline and it’ll take you through everything you need to do to complete the first Act and unlock everything you need in order to play properly.

So let’s take a look at the questline to see just what you need to do get rid of those Monsters and help Lisa get into a good school (you know if she ever ages beyond 8)….
