In-Game Update: Time Traveling? Forgotten Anniversary?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well we’ve got ourselves a very little (and I mean very little) in-game update.  A little dialogue will appear and it’ll be followed by 1 free items and several premium items in the store.

While it’s not a yard sale…it is a short 1 week update (ends May 30th) to get us (likely) to the next major event…

Here are the details….

In-Game Update: Pin Pals (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well that didn’t take long, now did it?  We’ve got ourselves an in-game update on our hands!  An all new mini-event has found it’s way into our pocket-sized Springfields!

The Pin-Pals are back and better than ever!

More details as I work my way through (that’s way I get for attempting to work lol)..but for now know that you’ll need Burns, Homer, Moe & Apu free for a series of 6second tasks to launch the mini event.

Back with more in a bit…. (and I can’t help but wonder…bowling, will the “French Fop” come into play?)

Details below the fold…

Secret Agents Removal Is Live…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Currently live in your app store is the removal update for the Secret Agents Event…

At the moment I only see the removal update on Android, nothing on iOS yet currently available on iOS, but I did have to reboot my device to see it in the store.  Amazon I can’t check, but if you see it let me know.Reportedly live on Amazon as well.  And I don’t see a “what’s new” description just yet.  If one shows up later I’ll add it to this post

Note: You may have to actually search your App Store for “Tapped Out” to see the update.  It may not initially appear in the update list…if you still don’t see it try rebooting your device.

And here’s the app store teaser…

As of right now there’s nothing really “new” with this removal update.  It just removes the event from your game…including rolling back the Splash Screen to the regular screen.

There are a few changes with this update though, which I’ll cover below… Continue reading

Creative Minds! (Contest Alert)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

You may remember back in the fall of 2016 (so just a couple of months ago) we had a few TSTO themed T-Shirts available for purchase.  This first, a Tapped Out Addicts shirt, was a huge hit but the second, a Keep Springfield Weird shirt, was a swing and a miss. But it was on the Keep Springfield Weird shirt post that several of you thought it might be a fun idea for y’all to design the next t-shirt Slogan….

So that’s exactly what we’re doing!  So get those creative juices flowing because it’s time for a Creative Minds T-Shirt Slogan contest!  Where your Slogan could be picked for the next Addicts T-Shirt BUT you can ALSO win Donuts!  And Who doesn’t like FREE DONUTS?!

Keep on reading for more (including how to enter, and what you can win)…

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….

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….
