Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Well that didn’t take very long….we’ve got ourselves a fun little in-game update. This particular update is a tie-in for Sunday’s new episode of The Simpsons, “22 for 30″, and will kick off for you in your game automatically (after the download) with some dialogue from Skinner & Milhouse.
This will be followed by 4hr tasks for the kids of Springfield…
Back with more as I go through it…More details, including the questline, below
Remember this is an in-game update, but you won’t see it unless you’ve downloaded the removal update for Around the World that hit App Stores yesterday. And no, this hasn’t fixed the missing tourists yet…
So this episode tie-in contains a couple of new items, 2 premium 1 free, and loads of returning content from events past. Here’s a look:
Should I Buy posts will be up for the new premium content…likely tomorrow.
Update: Thanks to readers in the comments…
Also a new task was added to Channel 6 Studios…. Channel 6 Sports week.
Here’s the Turbo Tap version of the questline:
Hijinks and Hoop Dreams Pt. 1
Make Youngsters Play Basketball Instead of Doing Math- x5. 4hrs. Earns $175, 45xp Freemium and $260, 70xp Premium
Make Milhouse Shoot Some Hoops- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Hijinks and Hoop Dreams Pt. 2
Place the Outdoor Basketball Half-Court- Free
Make Milhouse Practice his Two-Pointers- 2hrs, Earns $110, 27xp
Hijinks and Hoop Dreams Pt. 3
Make Milhouse Practice Very Nervously- 2hrs, Earns $110, 27xp
Hijinks and Hoop Dreams Pt. 4

After the questline is done Milhouse’s Practice Two-Pointers task AND Milhouse’s Fight Bart tasks will both remain in Milhouse’s task list. BOTH are animated tasks and both are done really well. Very impressed with this two animations.
