Secret Agent Simpsons Update is Live! (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well we teased it earlier..and now it’s live (on both iOS and Android from what I can tell)!

This is an APP STORE update, so check your app stores to update.  If you don’t see it as a pending update search your store for Tapped Out.

As always I’ll be back with more details as I go through them, but for now…

It starts off with a 6s task for Homer, followed by another 6s task for Homer, and another (along with a 6s task for 3 Springfielders).  You’ll then be tasked to build the Agency HQ (free) and then a 4hr task for Springfield “agents”.    Building the HQ will unlock the prize track for you as well as new items in the store…

The characters (villains) in the dialogue look strangely like the Villains from Superheroes 2….

More details below….

Update is Imminent…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well according to the EA update pattern we should be expecting a major app store update next…and that’s just what’s about to happen!

An update had hit the files (quite large too so be prepared for a big download), although it’s not in the App stores yet to download.  It is coming,  so be prepared cause it looks awesome!

Stay tuned to Addicts for all the details when it hits,  for now I’ll leave you with this teaser…

Wowser! This looks AWESOME!

What are your thoughts on the new update?  Ready for it?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you

Pi Day (Contest Alert)

Have you checked out the date today?!  Today just so happens to be 3-14 or in the  world of Geeks, Pi Day. As 3.14 is the short short short version for the symbol Pi. (Click here for more info on Pi.) Not to mention one of the Geeks of ALL Geeks, Albert Einstein, just so happens to have his birthday fall on 3-14. Seriously! It is quite a celebrated day. The College Kids at Princeton REALLY get into it each year. Just check this out.

So just why are we sharing all of this with you?  Because it’s that time of the year Addicts…the only day of the year where we give away PIE!  Mmmmmmmmm PIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEE!

See when we think of Pi Day…we think of PIE!!  So in honor of all the geeky nerds, nerdy geeks, and all in between…WE ARE GIVING AWAY PIE. (Again!)  WOOHOO!!

TSTO Changes You May Not Have Noticed….

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So over the last two days we’ve seen two updates for our pocket-sized Springfields.  The first happened on Tuesday (March 7th), which was an app store update to remove the Destination Springfield event from our games.  The second happened yesterday (March 8th), which brought some new content into Springfield in the form of an episode tie-in for Sunday’s “22 for 30” episode of The Simpsons.

Both updates brought changes to Springfield, many of which you’ve all noticed.  However, a few changes were made that you may not have noticed.  So let’s take a look at what you might have missed….

Housekeeping Note: Norbert’s Tasks Quick Change

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

I’m working on a post all about Norbert, but it likely won’t be up until later tonight.  (later than usual) My apologies… it ended up being a crazy day at work.  In the meantime I can confirm…

YES, the Airplane ticket spawn rate has changed.  It’s now 20 minutes, instead of 2 minutes.  Those seeing various times, it’s because the timer is running in your town already (so you’ll see 8m, 6m, 12m etc).  (shout out to LPN for showing me what I was completely missing…)

And YES, the “multi traveler” glitch is still working.  As of now.  Although with this long of a wait time it’s not really worth running…

I’ll be back later tonight with a rundown on Norbet.


New Stuff Alert! Superbowl Tie-In Breakdown

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

One thing is for sure with this Around the World update…EA is going to keep the Addicts staff BUSY with posts!  Loads of content coming and going nearly every single day…so please be patient as we try to parse through what’s hitting each day and have the time to write up posts about what’s changed/what’s been added.

Early this morning new content hit our stores (some was related to the Around the World Event) to celebrate Superbowl Sunday (which is this Sunday on FOX).  So let’s breakdown all the items, new and old, to celebrate Football!

And yes for those wondering…this does mean EA has “events” inside this event planned.  You can expect to see Valentine’s Day items in a few days as well.  So brace yourself for the craziness!

Around the World Event Is Live (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The newest event in TSTO, Around the World, is now live!  Check your App Stores, this is an APP STORE update.   If you don’t see an “update” listed search Tapped Out in your Store and manually update that way.


This is a large update & it’s late in the day.  I’m going through as much as I can and will be back with more details on it as soon as I can.

For now know that Homer (and Frink if you have him) gets things started. And you’ll be tasked with building The Springfield Airport

Back with more as I have it…(and after Riley goes to bed) Now that a little girl has gone to bed, I can update the post, more details below….

TSTO New Facebook Teaser..What’s Coming Next?!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

EA has just released (well ok an hr or so ago at this point…sometimes real life gets in the way of tapping ;)) a new Teaser for TSTO.


It looks like our own Wookstradamus prognosticated correctly!  It appears as if we’ll be getting an Around the World event in our games very soon!  (as if the Chinese New Year theme didn’t already tip many of us off 😉 )

What are your thoughts on the event teaser?  What would you like to see in this upcoming event?  When do you think it will hit?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
