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 Sorcerer Frink to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this scientific magician to your town…
Character: Sorcerer Frink (costume for Frink
Bundles: If you already have Professor Frink you’ll just get an offer for the costume, if you don’t already have Frink you’ll have a bundle option for Frink, his Lab and the Costume
Frink, Lab & Sorcerer Frink: 150 Donuts
Sorcerer Frink Stand-Alone: 100 Donuts
The rest of this post will only focus on Sorcerer Frink as a Stand-Alone. However, if you’re being offered the bundle it’s a pretty good deal. Info on Frink + Lab can be found here.
Leaves stores November 14th
-Another character for the Serfsons Character Collection
-Fun outdoor animated tasks
-Helps fight beasts and Lord Montymort
-Expensive for just a costume for Frink
-All of his tasks or either outside or at his lab, won’t utilize other buildings
Meh. Expensive with only a small benefit for the event. At the end of the day it’s still Frink, you’re not adding a new character to Springfield. (And Frink’s already a premium character). So I’d pass and spend your donuts on one of the other premium character offerings.
This one is hard for me to get behind for the freemium player. Bit pricey for a costume. I’d pass.
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 can tell you I’ll likely be passing. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).
