Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Looks like we’ve got ourselves an in-game update on our hands. This time we’re celebrating Chinese New Year!
This is an in-game update…nothing to download from the App Store. It should download into your game automatically and start up with some dialogue between Lisa and Homer, this will be followed by a 4hr Task for 3 Simpsons to Clean.
If you don’t see the dialogue launch try hard closing your game…if that doesn’t work restart your device. And of course make sure you’re in an area where you can download (ie Data over your phone or Wifi)
So, as always, let’s start with the basics and what’s new in the store…
This event ends January 31st. So it’s 6 days…not very long. This tells me it’s a placeholder, “filler”. Something to keep us busy tapping until they’re ready to launch their next event.
So keep that in mind when you’re frustrated over the lack of items offered….
Here’s what’s new in the store…
Great Wall- 60 Donuts, Build a wall around Springfield! Main Tower offers a 2.25%* bonus on all cash and XP. Side walls do not offer a bonus. (Am I the only one laughing that this was introduced today, of all days. Seriously can’t stop laughing about it…)
Dragon Bundle- 100 Donuts, Red, White & Yellow Dragon Decorations. Each Dragon offers a 2.25%* bonus on all cash and XP…so 6.75% bonus for all 3. (Good deal for those seeking to increase their XP Bonus)
*Bonus % as indicated in the files, does not show in the game menu. I will verify for the SIB posts for each via the in-game Bouns %.
Right now the questline is 3 parts, with a note that it will continue on January 28th (Saturday). Since it’s a super short initial questline, I’ve included the Turbo Tappin’ Version here:
Year of the Rooster Pt. 1
Make Simpsons Clean- x3. 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp Freemium and $260, 70xp Premium.
Year of the Rooster Pt. 2
Place Chinese Lanterns- x3. $5,000 each.
Make Homer and Flanders Practice Being a Dragon- 1hr, Earns $140, 34xp
Year of the Rooster Pt. 3
Make Homer Sample Chinese Beers- 2hrs, Earns $110, 27xp
Make Lisa Admire Decorations- 2hrs, Earns $110, 27xp
Make Marge Prepare Chinese Food- 2hrs, Earns $110, 27xp
And that’s it for now my friends. A simple, small little update bringing a little culture to Springfield! Could this update lead to a “romp around the world” like the App Store description suggests? Only time will tell..or stayed tuned to a future post where we analyze what the files are currently telling us… 😉
