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 Raoul & his Penthouse to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Miami/Cuba combo to your town…
Building/Decoration: Raoul’s Penthouse
Donut Cost:150 Donuts
Earns: $200, 22xp/8hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Indolence +20
Can Be Placed: grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt
Leaves stores May 9th
-Comes with a questline (which can wait until the event is over to complete)
-Will use Penthouse for tasks
-Can do heists for this event
-Penthouse has a small footprint, which is nice compared to other buildings with this event
-The penthouse is animated when in use, lights on silhouettes in windows
-Pricey for a one-off character (although it’s what we’ve come to expect these days)
-Lackluster animation on the Penthouse
I like it. It’s on the pricey side for a one-off, but it’s a nice building (and a small footprint), he’s voiced, he’ll help with the event and for his 8-hour task he’ll use the rooftop of his Penthouse, I really like visual tasks that interact with a building.
This isn’t a bad buy, but there are items that are a better bang for your buck. So check into some other characters (like Guy Incognito) before making a decision on this one.
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).
