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, there are monsters everywhere to battle and (as with all events) there are LOADS of items from Halloweens past to spend those sprinkles on!
Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks as awesome as this 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 Halloween Flashback Bundle 3, Wailing Wall, Helter Skelter or Shauna to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your Springfield…
Leaves Stores November 4th
Items: Flashback Bundle 3
Contains: Bad Dream House, Cemetery & the Raven (you can buy each separately if you already have 1 or 2 of the items. Pricing varies)
Donut Cost: 85 Donuts.
Bonus %: None
Earns: Bad Dream House- $500, 45xp/24hrs; $260, 26xp/12hrs (the Raven is an NPC)
What Do They Do: Bad Dream House and Cemetary earn income, while the Raven is an NPC (so it’ll just hop around your Springfield). Bad Dream House is the best of the bunch IMO, it’s animation is fantastic. You can see this animation if you send the Babysitter Bandit on a task there, or send Raphael to check the plumbing (however he’ll only go there if the Bad Dream House is the closest building to him. So to get that animation to appear…store the Googolplex and replace it right next to the Bad Dream House. Then you can move it back once Raphael goes on his task there)
Should I Buy Posts: Bad Dream House, Cemetery, The Raven
My Opinion On them Now: The Bad Dream House alone makes this bundle worth the 85 donuts..pick it up if you can.
Leaves Stores October 31st
Item: Wailing Wall
Cost: 50 donuts
Bonus %: 2.25%, Also Earns $300,30xp/12hrs
Previous Should I Buy Post: Wailing Wall
My Opinion On It Now: This is one of those unique Premium items that earn both a decent bonus % AND an income. It’s not a bad buy…
Leaves Stores October 29th
Character: Helter Skelter
Cost: 25 donuts
What Is It?: Non-Playable Character…so just roams Springfield
My Opinion On It Now: This returns from last Halloween…and my opinion on him is the same as it is with all NPCs…if you like it, get it. Otherwise pass. It’s completely useless for game purposes. So this is one you’ll have to get because you like it, and that’s about it.
Leaves Stores November 15th
Cost: 90 donuts
Previous Should I Buy Post: Shauna
My Opinion On It Now: 90 donuts for a character isn’t the greatest price, but it’s not bad. Shauna will help with the event (Trick or Treating) and she’s a highly requested character since she’s limited-time. She’s appeared several times in the past, but everyone always requests for her to come back. I like her, I like the buy. I’d grab her again if I didn’t already have her.
And there you have it my friends, the breakdown on the two latest returning premium items to hit our stores.
