Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
The spies are invading Springfield! Yes, the Secret Agent update has hit our games. We’ve got hacking, drones, dossiers and a shrinking donut bank account because there are LOADS of spy items in our stores just tempting us with those sprinkles!
Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks awesome 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 Globex Compound to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this world domination HQ to your Springfield…
Building: Globex Compound
Decorations: Globex Operations Wing & Globex R & D Wing
Donut Price: 115 Donuts
Conform-O-Meter: Compound: Obedience +20, Operations Wing: Vanity +100, R & D Wing: Vanity +100
Bonus %/Earns: Nothing
Size: Compound: 6×11; Operations: 4×10; R&D: 10×4
What’s The Deal With This: So when you first purchase it you’ll get the Compound, 1 Operations Wing and 1 R&D Wing (they’ll go in your inventory). However, the Compound will let you build additional Operations and R&D Wings. Simply tap the Compound and you’ll have the option to build (similar to how you build Squidport tiles) more buildings. Each wing (Operations and R&D) costs $2,000 & takes 20hrs to build. And you can only build one at a time.
Here are the parts:
Leaves Stores April 11th
-Can build more components to build a massive Globex compound (or use the buildings elsewhere)
-Both Hank Scorpio (regular Hank) and Willie have a 1hr task at the Compound building. (Willie- Apply for Fancy Janitor Job, Earns $70, 17xp. Hank- Host a Lunch & Learn, Earns $105, 26xp)
-Compound is animated when in use, either via task there or when it builds a new wing
-R&D Wing and Operations Wing are animated when tapped
-Does not earn income, the compound only builds doesn’t bring in any additional income.
-No bonus % on the wings
-Can only build 1 building at a time & it takes 20hrs for each…slow going
Premium or Freemium:
This offers little value in the way of advancing game play, no bonus % no income. (although there are 1hr tasks there for 2 characters) So this purchase is going to purely be a design choice. If you like the look of the buildings, have a purpose for them & think you’ll get use out of “building” more wings..go for it. Otherwise, pass.
Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do. And I can tell you as a premium player, I’m debating it. I have a couple of design ideas, just trying to decide if it’s worth pulling the trigger for them. Just remember this is limited time, and will be leaving our stores soon. Whatever you decide, So be sure to make your final decision before it’s gone from our games for good. (or for now..)
And here are a couple of design ideas from Ebron (if you missed them in the comments) :
