Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Let the heisting begin! The latest event in Springfield, The Springfield Job, is all about pulling off elaborate Heists…well not too elaborate Homer is involved…in a bet between two Nuclear Power Plant owners.
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 Arthur Fortune and Fortune Megastore to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this money tossing combo to your town…
Character(s): Arthur Fortune
Building/Decoration: Fortune Megastore
Donut Cost:145 Donuts
Conform-O-Meter: Consumerism +10
Can Be Placed: grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt
Leaves stores April 17th
-Comes with a questline (which can wait until the event is over to complete)
-A couple of amusing visual tasks, including a flying one
-Will use Megastore for tasks
-Can do heists for this event
-Corner building for Springfield, which is always nice
-Both animated tasks are essentially the same action, throwing money.
-Pricey for a one-off character in Springfield
Somewhere in the Middle
-His visual 4hr task is a flying task, like Arnie. I know for some this is a pro but for some, this is a con.
I’m a fan of this combo. Not a big fan of the price, but I like the look of the building and I like Arthur. So if you like it grab it, otherwise pass.
Freemium players, unless you really really love it…pass. There are better items to spend your donuts on (Westminster Abbey is one). I’d pass on Arthur, at least for now.
Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as a premium player, I picked this one up. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).
