Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Fall has arrived and there’s a haze over our Springfield’s, that can only mean one thing….it’s Halloween in our pocket-sized towns! This year EA’s thrown a little magic into the mix, with an Angelica Button theme invading our towns. An all new event means loads of new premium items in our stores just tempting us to drop those donuts while they’re hot!
Of course with that limited-time label, it can be tempting to grab everything in sight 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 Walking Kwik-E-Mart to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this elevated kwik-e to your town…
Donut Cost: 55 Donuts
Earns: $135, 15xp/4hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Consumerism +10
Other Info: Can be placed on Grass|pavement|boardwalk|dirt|pier
Leaves stores October 13th
-Comes with dialogue and a short questline
-Apu has a permanent 4hr task there (Bolt Down Products), which earns at a premium rate
-Characters will all earn at a premium rate for questline (if you don’t send Apu on his task there for the questline you can keep earning that infinitely)
-Always animated when not in use. Legs move around..kind of dances in place.
-When Apu (or another character) is using it, it will come down to the ground (like a normal building). So that “walking” animation ends
-Doesn’t actually walk. More like walks in place.
-No benefit for this event, just a whimsical building
Meh. It’s another building for Springfield. Another Kwik-E-Mart that Apu will have a task at, and that’s about it. If you like how it looks grab it, otherwise pass. There are better items to buy with this event.
Pass. Don’t even think on it, just pass. Far better items to spend your Freemium donuts on.
Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as I premium player I’ll be passing. Just doesn’t seem worth the donuts. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).
Here’s a look at the questline…
Apu: I will not allow my precious store to be ruined by whimsy. I’ve never been a mover and a shaker and I don’t want to be now!
Kirk: This place is jumping around more than Milhouse on meds. And it’s making me queasy!
Make Apu Bolt Down Products- 4hrs, Earns $260, 70xp
Make Springfielders Get Motion Sick- x3. 4hrs, Earns $260, 70xp
