Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Spending actual cash on donuts for a character is back in TSTO. This is something EA’s been rolling out over the last few years, and it’s a new bonus for actually spending cash on donuts. (instead of just farming them) Where they attach a premium, limited-time, character/costume/building/decoration/combo to one of the donut bundles sometimes in addition to bonus donuts.
And I want to be perfectly clear…you do not need to buy these characters to complete an event. You can still play this game, and complete all the tasks and prizes, 100% free. These cash-for-character items are a new type of premium currency…because donuts have been so devalued with donut farming.
This time around we’re being offered Quetzelica, a premium character for Springfield for a tray of 132 Donuts ($9.99 in the US). While it’s hard for me to sit here and tell you if you should or shouldn’t spend actual cash on the game (spoiler, I think you should always spend at least a small amount…even if it’s $.99/year on the game if it brings you joy and you want to see it continue) I thought I’d do a quick breakdown of Quetzelica, tasks, questline and other details you may be curious about.
So let’s consider this an abbreviated Should I Buy….
So what is the deal? When you can find it in the Currency Tab of your Store (also by hitting Get More)…
Basically, spend $9.99 on a Tray of 132 donuts and you get Quetzelica.
And yes for those outside of the US I know my price is probably lower than yours. EA only charges 9.99 USD for this package…anything over that that you are currently paying goes to Google/Apple/Amazon for Tax and Duty etc.
So here’s a breakdown on this one…
-A full premium character
-Comes with a complete set of tasks
-Comes with a questline
-Some really fun visual/animated tasks
Here’s a look at the task list

Homer: What are you two doing?
Lisa: We’re communing…sharing our thoughts on a spiritual level. You should join us!
Homer: I dunno…will this get me in trouble with Reverend Lovejoy?
Lisa: No more than you falling asleep in church already does.
Homer: If I join you will you stop judging me?
Lisa: For now.
Homer: Omm…omm… *snores*
Make Quetzelica Commune With Nature- 4hrs
Make Lisa Commune With Nature- 4hrs
Inner Obese Pt. 2
Lisa: There seems to be an awful lot of criminals roaming Springfield lately.
Homer: Yeah, probably drawn to town because of this superhero event. *bites into potato chip*
Homer: Oh, sorry, are we not supposed to eat while we commune?
Quetzelica: I’m sensing something… something very bad.
Homer: Is it Reverend Lovejoy? He’s found out I’m sleeping through someone else’s sermon!
Quetzelica: It’s the demons of the underworld come to claim my power!
Homer: Don’t let them take my potato chips!
Quetzelica: Look out!
Homer: My chips! Something knocked them out of my hands! Must. Retrieve. Chips!
Quetzelica: Get out of the way, you idiot!
Make Quetzelica Fight Demons- 4hrs
Make Lisa Get Behind Quetzelica- 4hrs
Make Homer Get in the Way Looking for Chips- 4hrs
Homer: Oh, happy day! I found them!
Quetzelica: I’m happy you’re happy, but next time defeating murderous demons should come before you searching for your chips.
Homer: Murderous demons?
Quetzelica: Did you not see that entire fight sequence?
Homer: Sorry, looking for chips causes one to miss things.
Inner Obese Pt. 3
Lisa: That was amazing! It’s so refreshing to see a woman take charge like that.
Quetzelica: Yes, strong heroines are pretty “in” right now.
Lisa: So, should we get back to communing?
Quetzelica: I’d love to, Lisa, but I need to report back to the others on what just transpired.
Homer: Don’t worry. Daddy will “omm” it up with you, sweetie.
Lisa: Okay, but can you stop crunching chips while we’re communing?
Homer: No problem. I’ll switch to quiet pasta instead. *slurps down a noodle*
Quetzelica: I can knock him out if you want…
Lisa: Nah, I’ll just wait until he falls asleep again.
Homer: Omm… *slurp* Omm… *slurp* Omm… *snores*
Make Quetzelica Report Back to Base- 4hrs
Make Homer Pass Out While “Communing”- 4hrs
Make Lisa Ignore Homer’s Snoring While Communing- 4hrs
That’s pretty much it on Quetzelica.
I’ll be honest on this one…I’m passing. Just not a character I’m interested in, so I’d rather save my money for something else down the line.
