Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
So something EA’s been slowly rolling out over the last year or so is this new bonus for actually spending cash on donuts. (instead of just farming them) Where they attach a premium, limited-time, character to one of the donut bundles in addition to bonus donuts.
This time around we’re being offered Hans Mechman, a FULL character, for a tray of 132 donuts. While it’s hard for me to sit here and tell you if you should or shouldn’t spend actual cash on the game (spoiler, I think you should always spend at least a small amount…even if it’s $.99/year on the game if it brings you joy and you want to see it continue) I thought I’d do a quick breakdown of Mechman, his tasks and other details you may be curious about.
So let’s consider this an abbreviated Should I Buy….
For those who missed it, Patric did a fun post about Mechman and the great “deal”. You can check that out here…
So what is the deal? When you can find it in the Currency Tab of your Store (also by hitting Get More)…
Basically spend $9.99 on a Tray of 132 donuts and get 60 bonus donuts (so 192 donuts total) and Hans Mechman.
And yes, for those outside of the US I know my price is probably lower than yours. EA only charges 9.99 USD for this package…anything over that that you are currently paying goes to Google/Apple/Amazon for Tax and Duty etc. EA only collects the 9.99.
So, personally I think this is a good deal. You get 192 donuts plus a premium FULL character for $9.99. (no this isn’t Hans Moleman, you won’t get him with this. This is a seperate full character)
So here’s a breakdown on Hans Mechman….
-He is not voiced
-Comes with a complete set of tasks
-Comes with a questline
-Some fun visual/animated tasks
-THREE visual tasks
Here’s a look at his task list
