Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Ol’ Gil is back in Springfield…he couldn’t stay away too long! This time he’s bringing us a deal of Hellish proportions…
Yes, Gil’s peddling a fun little Hellfish Bundle this time around. Fits in nicely with our military inspired items from Rommelwood. This bundle includes costumes for Grampa & Mr. Burns, as well as a couple other Hellfish items.
So when you first opened up your Springfield today you would have seen some dialogue popup…
Herman: Someone broke into my shop and stole a bunch of WWII memorabilia.
Grampa: That’s why you should’ve hired WWII vets to guard your store.
Herman: I did hire you!
Grampa: Your first mistake.
At which point you’ll see Gil famously waving his arms in the air..
When tapped you’ll trigger this…
Gil: Ol’ Gil’s back in town and he’s got a real deal for you: a veritable bonanza of WWII treasures – don’t ask from where. I’ll take check, cash, or a warm meal. Ok ANY meal.
At which point you’ll see the offer appear:
If you decline you’ll see:
Gil: I guess I’ll have to go sign up for war instead of just profiting from it.
And if you accept you’ll see:
Gil: Thanks, soldier! Remember, you can’t spell war profiteering without profit. Or war.
So what does this bundle include? 4 total items…
For 190 Donuts you’ll get…
So what are the pros and cons of this deal? Let’s break them down..
-Premium skins for both Grampa and Burns (earn at Premium rates, instead of their typical regular rate)
-Hellfish Monument is animated when in use (and will be used), the monument slides back and stairs are revealed
-Hellfish Grampa and Burns have some fun outdoor animations
-The only instance of Hellfish that we’ll get in Springfield (at least for now)
-Over priced for two skins for existing characters and 2 items
-The Treasure Chest lacks a bonus % (for now at least) and offers a fairly weak animation (crab crawls out when tapped)
So, if you’ve really been wanting Hellfish stuff this is likely your chance to get it. It is overpriced, but the number is relative to what you want in your game. Personally, I don’t think it’s worth it. But I know there are bunch of you premium players who will disagree with me, because you love the combo. And that’s ok, if you’ve got the donuts to spend and love the items pick it up. But if you want my opinion, it’s overpriced.
Pass. This “deal” has all the red flags that we usually tell Freemium players to avoid. It’s over priced. No new characters, only skins for existing ones. No bonus % offered on items, although the one does pay out cash. And the questline is pretty short. My personal opinion for freemium players is pass. It’s overpriced and underwhelming.
Of course in the end it’s your decision. We can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do. And in this case I’ll likely pass. Whatever you decide just remember that this is limited time and will be leaving our games next week. So whatever you decide just make sure you do it before it leaves our games for good (or for now).
