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 4 or Count Burns 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
Leaves Stores November 15th
Character/Skin: Count Burns
Item: Count Burns’ Coffin
Cost: 120 donuts (I can’t confirm this, unfortunately my low level game doesn’t have the offer, so I’m going off the last donut price)
Previous Should I Buy Post: Count Burns
My Opinion On It Now: While Count Burns does earn Event Currency at the MAG building, this combo just isn’t worth it to me. 120 donuts for a premium skin (not character, skin for Mr. Burns) just isn’t worth the purchase. I’d pass on this one.
Leaves Stores November 6th
Items: Flashback Bundle 4
Contains: Talking Krusty Doll, Burns Monster & Devil Flanders
Donut Cost: 100 Donuts.
What Do They Do: Devil Flanders is a Skin for Flanders with a full set of fun tasks, Talking Krusty and Burns Monster are two NPCs that will just roam Springfield.
Should I Buy Posts: Talking Krusty Doll, Burns Monster, Devil Flanders
My Opinion On them Now: The NPCs aren’t worth it..they never have been, but i’m not a big fan of NPCs. However, Devil Flanders is one of the best skins (in my opinion) available for Flanders. So that alone makes the 100 donut combo price worth it. However, if you only have the individual option available (for 75 donuts), that’s a rough one. I’d wait till Act 3 starts and see if anything new peeks my interest before deciding.
Individually on the Burns Monster (25 Donuts) and Talking Krusty Doll (60 donuts), not worth the donuts. So save them for something better…
To sum up…Combo- Worth it. Individually- Devil Flanders…see what’s coming tomorrow before deciding. Burns Monster and Talking Krusty Doll- Pass and save your donuts.
And there you have it my friends, the breakdown on the two latest returning premium items to hit our stores.
