Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s event time in Springfield! With the launch of Itchy and Scratchy Land, summer can officially begin for the residents of our pocket-sized towns! Of course, an all-new event means a new opportunity for EA to add new premium items to our stores!
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 Jeremy and Nickel ‘N’ Dime Animation to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this animation Duo to your town…
Building/Decoration: Nickel ‘N’ Dime Animation
Donut Cost: 150 Donuts
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +100
Can Be Placed: grass|dirt|pavement|boardwalk|pier
Leaves stores July 11th
-Comes with a questline, every questline task earns event currency
-Can staff rides at Itchy and Scratchy Land
-Pricey for who he is/what he does
-Does not earn at a premium rate for Staffing rides, earns same rate as every other character
This one is another one where it’s hard to justify the price. 150 donuts for a character that’s only appeared in a couple of episodes is rough. But he is cheaper than Scratchy and meets a lot of the standard requirements we talk about for Premium combos…he’s voiced, comes with a building (which he will use) and helps with the event. Not the best pickup in the world, but not a terrible one either. If you like it grab it, otherwise pass.
Freemium players I’d pass on this one. There will be better items to spend your donuts on as the event progresses, so I’d hold off and see if anything else peeks your interest as the event progresses.
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’m on the fence. 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 his tasks…
