In-Game Update: Great Phatsby Mini Episode Tie-in

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A super quick episode tie-in hit our games this afternoon.  This is for this Sunday’s upcoming 1hr episode “The Great Phatsby”.

This really is super quick…

If you don’t already have the Burns Summer Mansion (from Superheroes 2), you’ll have to build it. (for free)


That will be followed by a quick 6s task for Mr. Burns.

And that’s it…you’ll then see this message:


And that’s it.  All I’ve come across anyway.  Really short, really simple.  Really just a reminder to watch on Sunday…and a nice way to get the Mansion if you missed it during Superheroes.

Oh and this update should fix the Princess Nerd questline issue for Martin and the Ice Castle.

That’s it my friends.  What are your thoughts on this super short task for Sunday’s episode?  Think there will be more to it?  Excited for a full 1hr episode?  Sound off below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. Anyone else had a glitch with the daily task to play Sideshow You? I’ve completed that task 6 times and it doesn’t get recognised. Any ideas how to fix it?


  2. Does the mansion come with the 2 upgrades if you buy it?
    I have it from the superheroes event but i couldn’t reach the last upgrade


  3. I hope they give us the Snoop Dogg character it would be really cool with him tokin up around town.


  4. Didnt fix my Martin task


  5. Worst update..ever.


  6. Well, that was an anticlimax. I was really hoping for a small quest-line with something meaningful at the end. It was small, I can’t deny that. All it really achieved was to get me to start my Ebenezer Burns quest-lines. He normally lives in his Gorilla Vest, I just love the extra revenue.

    I’m seriously hoping for a massive fire sale soon, I’m not going to be tempted to buy more donuts when I have so many sitting in the bank, if I’m going to be tempted to spend some real cash they need to give me something to spend my stash on!
    I even bought all the NPCs just cos I was bored of not buying anything new. Yes, even the Funzos!
    I fear donuts are not the precious items they once were. That’s a major change to the game that I find a little sad.
    I know some of you will think I’m crazy saying that but give it time, in 6 months or a year, if you play the game a lot, you’ll be earning donuts quicker than you can spend them.

  7. I have a problem. It won’t let me place Burn’s Summer Mansion. It goes red even when I place it over an empty space.


  8. Queue 6 second task – commercial tie in for the next episode of THE SIMPSON’S (an hour long episode, too) …. and that’s all Tappers got today – a tease! 😅


  9. Why are so many people continuing to be surprised that Ice Princess Martin’s task is still there? Alissa has said repeatedly (including as a full half of a recent post….not just in the comments) that the soonest it’s likely to come down would be with the next app store update. This was not an app store update…it was just a small update pushed out for the episode tie-in.

    Patience, people! In the scope of things that could be wrong in the game, this one is really pretty minor…


  10. Beep ! Beep ! Beep ! Beep !

    This is a test , only a test.

    If this had been a real emergency .

    You would have been told to RUN LIKE HELL .

    See ya bye . Wish you were here . 👽

  11. I didn’t notice it the first time around but if you place the summer mansion so that the front faces the sea the gold MB diamond by the front door is upside down. It’s the right way round when the mansion is turned round but all my buildings face the sea so it would look ridiculous. If i didn’t have mild OCD it wouldn’t matter 😃

  12. Not the kinda quickie I’m used to. I mean, it should have been aaaat least a 2min task, right?! Just sayin, EA coulda been a little more into it 😉

    I’m ankle deep in broken crockery that I’ve smashed on the floor.
    Why should newbies get something for free that I had to toil so diligently for.
    Why, why, why?
    Sob, sob sob 😥😥😥😂😂😂😂😇😇😇😇

    On the bright side, my wife has been bugging me to purchase a new dinner set.

  14. It wasn’t a “mini event”. It was a 6 second commercial for The Simpsons. Duh. I’m mean D’oh! 😉


  15. Really? That’s it? I was surprised when I saw the update coming and especially when the dialogue started since I didn’t think anything would start while Homer the Heretic is still going on. But to just have one 6 second quest and re-release a building, that can’t be all there is to it? Right?

  16. My email had to download 600MB worth of data for that stupid 6-second task. I am not happy.


  17. Man that was a difficult event – I might have only got through it thanks to a Let’s Play on Twitch.

    All joking aside, it would have been better had it not been a 6s task (it took longer for him to get there) and a reminder to watch an episode of a programme that I won’t be able to see for months (as we don’t all live in America).

  18. Princess Nerd still showing up on my game, even after going to Krusty Land and back.


  19. I would love to see that goose and the bling cooling towers in the game,(instead of offering only one thing that was available 6 months ago). I won’t be able to see this episode for a few weeks or months because season 28 has only just started on the channel that I usually watch Simpsons on last Sunday. 🙂🤑

      It’s only just started for me in the UK. Atleast two episodes are airing a week, I think, as two aired on sky 1 last Sunday. It would of been cool to see Burns’ virtual reality set up, and VR costumes for Burns, Marge, Lisa, Bart, and Maggie. 😛 And even though this was just a really small mini tie in thing, it would of been nice to see a few items in the store.. 🙂

    • Yeah it was Monty Burns’ Fleeing Circus + Friends and Family that aired as I am also in the UK. This could be a teaser for something next to come in the game.
