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

Springfield Showoff: Rommelwood Academy

Note: There were a few submissions (from Showoff regulars) I forgot to add last night, so I’ve added them in now…so take another look through to see a few you may have missed…

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 find ourselves sometimes 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. 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. Brag about it to the world. We want you to. (That and Bunny loves to see other designs and get inspiration from it.) Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.
