Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Well, it’s officially Cyber Monday, and it looks like EA decided to extend our sales for another day! Now the Black Friday & Cyber Monday boxes/items will leave stores tomorrow, November 28th. Which means I can actually write a Should I Buy for the one brand new item to hit our towns this weekend! So let’s check out the new premium bot….
As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us 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 Itchy and Scratchy Bot to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this robotic Cat and Mouse to your town…
Character(s): Itchy & Scratchy Bot (2 bots walk/act as 1)
Donut Cost: 60 Donuts
Other Info: NPC (non-playable Characters), they walk and are animated when tapped. NO tasks.
Leaves stores November 28th (EXTENDED)
-Comes with some funny dialogue
-Animated when tapped (see below)
-From a classic episode of The Simpsons
-NPCs, no tasks and no purpose in Springfield other than walking around town.
Premium or Freemium:
NPCs are almost always a toss-up. They’re in the category of “if you like it, get it”. Some people won’t spend a dime for NPCs since they serve no benefit for Springfield, others will spend all their donuts on NPCs because they make them laugh (I’m looking at you Brooders). And some are like me. Practical. If you have a fond memory, you’ll get it. Otherwise, you save your donuts.
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 picked it up. This episode is just too great not to mark my town. 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 dialogue it comes with…
Homer: The robot rebellion is finally upon us! Please, oh mechanical overlords, allow me to serve you and betray my fleshy brethren.
Bart: Dad, we already defeated the robots once. All we need is a camera with a flashbulb.
Homer: Yeah, but when was the last time you saw an actual camera? It’s every man for himself! Take the boy, robot masters! He blasphemes your glory!
Tap Itchy and Scratchy Bot
Homer: Looks like we defeated all the robots. By outsourcing their destruction to the Sky Finger. Ah, outsourcing, another gift from corporate America.
Bart: Yeah, but what about the next time machines try to destroy our society? Should we prepare?
Homer: What did you say? I just beat level 500 of Happy Elves.
Bart: Hmm, maybe they’ve already won.
And here’s what the animation looks like when tapped…
