Should I Spend Donuts On Kamala and the Rigellian Infant Pod Transmitter?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Gather ’round the tapping device everyone, it’s update time in TSTO! As Halloween is alive and well in our pocket-sized towns…even if it is seven days into November!  Of course, an all-new event means all-new premium content in our stores, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!

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 Kamala and the Rigellian Infant Pod Transmitter to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Alien combo to your town…

Pros
-Helps with the event (Week 4), earns a special premium rate
-8 and 24 hr visual tasks
-Comes with a questline
-A number of tasks involve Rigel VII, from the prize track
-Will use the infant Pod for tasks.
-Maggie has a 4hr Premium Job at the Transmitter, Phone Home

Cons
-The transmitter is really tiny

Final Thought
This is a fun character. Fun tasks, uses the Transmitter for tasks, also utilizes Rigel VII, plus helps with event currency tasks. Other than that it’s a standard character/decoration combo, with event currency tasks. If you like the combo, and want to complete your Aliens, pick it up…otherwise pass.

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 already picked it 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 the tasks…

  1. 2 things about Kamala and the transmitter.

    1. The transmitter contributes towards socialism which is only increased by visiting friends and buying buildings and decorations that contribute towards it. Or is this the first item that actually contributes to socialism?

    2. Kamala was voiced by Tress MacNeille in the show but she’s also voiced in the game which is a first since I also thought that voiced characters in the game were played by the core 6 cast in the show plus Matt Groening. I’m not complaining if this means that more Tress MacNeille characters get voiced in the future.

  2. My heart skipped a beat when I first saw that another Rigellian was up for grabs. I couldn’t buy her fast enough. Being voiced was the cherry on top.

  3. 🎃Silly story, but anything w/Kang & Kodos is basically enjoyable… And they did at least make effort w/graphics such as when tapping Satan book😈

  5. Got this character, as well as the other premium characters from this event. Should be able to get the final track prize (Lucy’fer Satan) tomorrow. I also had only 4 items from the recent mystery box 2 weeks ago (Moe-Devil, Amenhotp, Voodoo Queen, and Nosferatu) and cleared the box. As for this event as a whole, again the multi-event format has gone stale. The story is also confusing. Also, it’s the middle of November and Christmas is only a month away (though I don’t want to hear Christmas music this early on the radio!) I’m ready for Black Friday and the upcoming Winter event.

    I usually play with the sound off (fix that toilet/bird noise already, EA!) but according to the TSTO forum, Kamala is voiced by Tress MacNellie yet only characters voiced the main 6 voice actors (Dan/Julie/Nancy/Yeardley/Hank/Harry) are voiced in the game (Matt Groening is an exception to this). Could Tress’ other characters (Agnes, Dolph, etc) being given voice clips in the future considering that she’s been credited in many Simpsons episodes (she’s been there since season 1 but regularly until around season 7 or 8). Maybe some of the other cast, like Pamela Hayden (Milhouse, Jimbo) or Maggie Roswell (Helen Lovejoy, Maude Flanders) will finally have their characters feature voice clips? Milhouse is probably the most important character in the game who is NOT currently voiced. Could use few more female voices in a sea of men as Yeardley only voices Lisa (and her clones such as President Lisa), Julie voices only Marge and her relatives, and Nancy only voices some of the boys (Bart, Nelson, Ralph). Celebrity-voiced characters (such as Sideshow Bob) and characters whose voice actors have died (most recently Russi Taylor. RIP) will likely remain voiceless as it would be seen as disrespectful in the case of the latter.

      You brought up so many good points and the main one for me is the fact we finally got Tress MacNellie to voice a Character in this Game App (I wish they’d have arranged this for all her voiced Characters already available – her vocal talents were used in some early EA Simpson’s Games for consoles and PC).

      As for why the vocal talents of Pamela Hayden, or Maggie Roswell, are also missing from the Game App? I guess it all comes down to 💰 (they all deserve to get paid!)

  7. Yep, the dialogue and story lines were quite good 2-3 events ago, but have fallen far quickly. I daresay they probably had to work harder to come up with something this nonsensical.

    I’d say we’ve hit Zombie TSTO at this point.

    I’m using donuts to speed up this event to end it sooner and then will spend my time farming more donuts while they have it working. I expect the crashes to kick in shortly after the event is over.

  9. Kamala and Rigellian Infant Pod Transmitter

    If you 💜 your 👽’s on TSTO? You will spend sprinkles con this Character Combo (and lol at how tiny the Infant Pod Transmitter is – we’re talking as small as some Easter Event Prizes – ‘memba those?) 😅

    She is voiced (funny dialogue) and great visual Tasks! Is she THOH? More so then a 3 Bears House!

  10. Ok, I am having some serious problems with this plot line.

    As I see it, we are made to believe that Bart and Lisa are unconscious, yet while they are unconscious, they are sent on tasks. How can they do that while unconscious? It just doesn’t make sense.

    Oh, and by the way, no use of the chewbacca defense.

    CBG: worst plot line ever.

      Agreed! There is nothing cohesive about this year’s THOH!(I’ve had to relearn – zero expectations means zero explanations for the lack of logic!) 😯

      Tappers will get to complete their 👽 Collection (well, expand on it!) we’ve come a long way from shooting down Flying Saucers!

      Act 4 / Week 4 is better then the 3rd, but this is a D Grade Event!

          Last Event Prize for Act 4 / Week 4 is Rigel VII (aka Rigel 7) it’s the 1st time this has been introduced to TSTO Game App (prior? we had the Portal and the 🛸’s – 2 of them) – some Content came back as Event Prizes, or THOH Mystery Box Items, but not everything Rigellian related from prior Events.

      • I set the bar low for expectations here.

        That image out the window could have been done with a green screen, or it could be Mr. Sparkle in clothes to look like Honer, or it could be Guy Incognito, those are all plausible.

        But this plot line is just weak. I mean they could have had Vlad steal their souls and have them doing tasks as zombies or some kind of undead. It was all right there, but they didn’t go with it.

        Oh wait, was the script on goldenrod? Come on EA, there is still time to pull this one out.
