Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Halloween is back in Springfield! Yes, the water is murky, the screen is slightly darker, monsters and minions are roaming our towns…is there anything better than Halloween in our pocket-sized towns? Of course, by now, we all know that a new event means a new excuse for EA to fill our stores with limited-time premium items to tempt us.
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 Cursed Tomb and Mummy to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this mummified combo to your town…
Building/Decoration: Cursed Tomb
Character: Mummy (Amenhotep)
Donut Cost: 145 Donuts
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +400
Can Be Placed:grass|pavement|dirt
Leaves stores November 14th
-Comes with a questline
-Earns Pickaxes and event currency at Holy Forge (premium rate, so 3 pickaxes)
-Cursed Tomb is animated when in use (Tomb door opens, lights flicker)
-It’s a Mummy, not exactly canon in Springfield (although what is these days…)
Not a bad pickup for the event. His outdoor tasks are pretty funny and he’s helpful for the event itself (although who needs the help at this point?). Not a bad premium pickup.
Like many other characters with this event, this isn’t a bad pickup. It’s fairly standard for what we’ve seen. However, given the choice between the Mummy and Beatrice, I’d choose Beatrice. The Mummy isn’t a great fit in Springfield (aesthetically) and the tomb earns cash and XP..instead of a bonus %.
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 likely be picking 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).
Here’s a look at his tasks…
