Four Years and Glowing! TSTO Numbers are Eye-Opening!


EA is a  company that rarely takes the time to blow their own horns. Outside of the regular ballyhoo that surrounds the huge marketing blather around a new release, EA is kind of a “Keep the Hits Coming…Deal with the Fallout Later” kind of a company.

So, even though we know that TSTO is far down the list as one of their top priorities in development, it is news when they release a new “Info-Graphic” because it is such a rare event.  How rare?  How about only the 2nd time since 2012?

An “Info-Graphic” is kind of what it sounds like, a large graphic used to disseminate information about something. The FIRST IG, talked about the huge success of TSTO (after just a couple of months), and how it was at the “Top of the Mobile Game Revenue Charts.”

Well, we know that TSTO has been displaced from the “Top of the Charts,” and in fact rarely shows up on the “Top 50 Grossing Mobile Games” However, there are a few distinctive numbers that should give all of us TSTO players a bit of pride and comfort in the game’s future, that can be dissected from the latest InfoGraphic.

Let’s Take a Look…

Halloween 2016 Event 101: M-M-M-Monsters! (Monster Battles Act 1)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Halloween in our pocket-size Springfields!  Yes that magical time of the year when our towns turn dark, our water becomes mucky and there are monsters everywhere to battle.  And of course an all new event means all new twists and turns to make us all a little crazy….

Seeing lots of questions from you guys about the Giant Monsters How do you get them?  What do they do?  How do you get it started?    Let’s take a look at all those questions and more as we break down the details of Monster Battles…2016-10-05-23-41-51 Continue reading

Crazy Cat Lady Halloween Bundle(s)- Should You Buy?


Let’s start off with the fact that there has been plenty of “crazy” to go around here lately.  And as the movie “A Beautiful Mind” taught us, there are many levels of “crazy” that border on genius.  I think that one of things that attracts me most to crazy cat lady, is that she in fact borders on that line, and dares to step across it from time to time (stepping back to “normal” from crazy).

Aren’t we all just a little nuts about something in our lives? Say…oh…a digital game or something? But, I digress…

Eleanore (bet you didn’t remember she has a name) started out in life like many of us, with ambitions and dreams that are far above those of an average 8-year-old girl. According to the WIKI, “Eleanor Abernathy was a smart and ambitious young girl who wanted to be both a lawyer and a doctor “because a woman can do anything”. She was studying for law school at 16, and by 24, she had earned an MD from Harvard Medical School and a JD from Yale Law School. However, by 32, suffering from burnout, she had turned to alcohol, became obsessed with her pet cat, and would randomly take to cutting pieces of her own hair. By the time she was 40, she had assumed her present state as a drunken, raving lunatic. She once shared a cat with Moe.”  (See her full life story HERE)

So, right away, there is something deeper and more substantive than the average Springfieldean.  There is something endearing about someone who has found a way to deal the general insanity of the world (throwing cats), and has found an outlet for her unrequited love for humanity, by absorbing herself into another obsession. No. Not a mobile app game…CATS! Makes as much sense to me as loads of other things people do to cope.

But enough amateure psychology. What you guys really want to know is, “Should I BUY the Crazy Cat Lady Bundle or Not!!!  Get to it already!!!!”

OK. Let’s take a look.
