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 the Park Engineer to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this theme park crazy man to your town…
Character: Park Engineer
Donut Cost: 65 Donuts
Leaves stores July 11th
-Comes with a questline, every questline task earns event currency
-Can staff rides at Itchy and Scratchy Land
-A couple of amusing tasks
-All of his indoor tasks have no location associated with them. The character just roams around Springfield aimlessly (i’m sure this will be corrected eventually)
-Really unique to I&S land, no real ties to Springfield or any other episodes
Premium or Freemium:
I like this one. It’s not an awful price for a stand-alone. His outdoor tasks are pretty funny and he’s voiced. More pros than some of the other characters added lately…I’d pick this one up if you’re in the market for an I&S character
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’ll be picking him up. 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…
Park Engineer’s Permanent Tasks:
|Check Operation Status||1hr||$105, 26xp||Location Missing…|
|“Fix” Malfunctioning Robot||4hrs||$260, 70xp*||Outside/Visual|
|Conveniently Escape a Conversation||8hrs||$420, 105xp*||Outside/Visual|
|Greet Park Visitors||12hrs||$600, 150xp||Location Missing…|
|Deal with Near Catastrophes||24hrs||$1000, 225xp||Location Missing…|
He will also have tasks to Overpay for Sex on the Beach, Try to Win At Blackjack, Drink and Babysit and Dance the Senor Burns…provided you have the buildings associated with those tasks.
