The Sounds of TSTO: Breakout Bounty

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Your senses can evoke powerful memories in you. The smell of saltwater can trigger you back to your youth spent at the beach, the touch of cotton can bring you back to memories of your mom, and hearing sounds of TSTO can bring back countless hours spent tap, tap, tapping away.

So let’s take a trip down memory lane via the sound effects of TSTO…

Springfield Showoff: Breakout Bounty

As we sit here frakkin files, pulling pics, and typing a million words a minute to get our readers the latest updates and information…we sometimes find ourselves forgetting to stop and enjoy our own games. More so our neighboreenos. So we try to make it a point to hop in n out of the towns now and then to see what cool things YOU are up to. So we have decided we want to continue to focus more attention (as if we don’t already 😛 ) on YOU…our readers. From time to time we will be peaking into your towns, checking our Flickr, and also the posts in the comments below to see what cool ideas and designs YOU have come up with to make your towns unique and…well…YOU.

So here is YOUR chance to show off all your hard work, time, donuts & in-game cash spent. Send us your work, no matter how big or small, and brag about it to the world. We want you to! Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

In-Game Update: Season 33 Prize Track

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It looks like EA is once again breathing a little bit of new life into TSTO and trying something different again!  Well…kinda something old, but a different spin on it!

Folks, it looks like episode tie-ins are back! 
But in a new way….

We haven’t seen an episode tie-in in TSTO since 2018!  After being such a fun part of the game since its inception, it’s really nice to see them make a comeback with the start of Season 33 this weekend!

Now, these episode tie-ins will be a bit different than what we’re traditionally used to…and honestly I’m ok with that! It looks like EA is putting a new spin on things, and an attempt to make it more fun and link it directly to the episodes.

So what’s this all about?  Well, let me break down as much as I know so far…
