Happy 10th Birthday TSTO!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Today, March 1st marks the 10 year anniversary of TSTO!  This game officially hit app stores on March 1st, 2012 (Apple App stores, until 2013)!  Although remember, the game was pulled from the App Store shortly after it arrived because there were LOADS of issues.  It returned later that summer.

Look for a very special episode of Addicts Live to air later today celebrating the 10 year anniversary with YOU the members of the Addicts Community!

You’ll be able to view the video here once it goes live, but of course, we’ll have a post up as well.

But for now I thought it would be fun to take a look back at the some of the fun promotional YouTube videoes that EA released for TSTO…

And of course this one with over 42 million views! 👀

And of course this one…that I think EA should revisit the motto of “finally something to do in the game besides just tap…”

Do you remember these videos?  Which one is your favorite?  What’s your favorite TSTO memory? Sound off below you know we love hearing from you!

  1. i started playing when it originally came out. when it crashed, i checked in daily to collect income. there was a glitch where i had two springfields and i never knew which one would open. One was level 20 (the max at the time) and the other was lower. When they fixed the issue, i was very relieved that the level 20 game was saved and became my only game. And bc i checked in once a day, I had lots of cash for the new levels.

    when the validation issue hit (and i hadn’t updated my email in my acct) i thought i lost everything after playing from day 1. i struggled to verify my account for months (no data in my acct except email and birthday, which was wrong for some reason). then i added my credit card so i had info to verify and it worked and i got my TSTO back! happy birthday TSTO!

  2. I’ve had my EA account since 2011 so I think I’ve been playing TSTO since the beginning and man is my finger sore and a little flat on the end! 🤣

    • I know what you mean. If you see my post about the donut count I have on the Addicts Live ep 92 page and consider that was all me tapping to place trucks and open bonut boxes hour after hour for about 600 hours or so of grinding or swearing at the Bart screen . . . !!
      – so glad I built my daft gadget – Still takes time but saves my tapping finger from wearing out . . . 😊

  3. Guess I’m too late for the cake, but I’ll have a drink to celebrate 😊

  4. mr.rooney.to.you

    The best thing is it’s free, sort off lol 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇺🇦🤣🤓

  5. Let’s just say that the initial “birth” of TSTO was an under-formed preemie at best. It wasn’t a “viable life” until August. But that analogy may be too creepy to use on a “birthday” celebration! LOL! So…yeah…YAY, TSTO! You’re (mostly) ten!!

    • I mean…even a preemie’s birthday is still the day they were born. Just because they may have to spend a few months getting to full strength doesn’t change their actual birthday…but hey everyone has their own take I suppose 🤔

  6. The “are you spending too much time with your family?” ad is brilliant. As always, the writing is top notch. Or maybe I’m just tired of being a successful, healthy person.

  7. Yeah…feels a bit early. But, then again…TSTO has outlived expectations several times over. So why not celebrate early. Right?

  8. a decade for one of the best Mobile Game Apps ♥️
    and soon a decade for thee best Simpsons related sites ♥️
    (Oh you know I 🎃 those THOH Event videos!) 😊👍🏻
