Where Did THAT Come From: Sir Loves-a-Lot

The Valentine’s day update was quickly followed by the chaos of Superheros, so we didn’t have a chance to cover everything before Superheroes hit.  Here’s an Addicts post we wrote during Valentine’s Day, but are just now getting the chance to share it with you 🙂

In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where Did THAT Come From?

Tapped Out Special Event Walkthroughs: Valentine’s Day 2015

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Valentine’s Day has arrived in the streets of Springfield!  And this year’s Valentine’s Day theme revolves around Lisa and her true love Fallout Boy Sidekick Milhouse.

As we mentioned in the Valentine’s Day Rundown post, Lisa gets things rolling for the event with her never-ending Valentine writing, including sending one to a boy!  Fall Out Boy!  And now that the event has left our games I thought it’d be fun to take a look  back at the at the dialogue this year’s event brought us.  Just in case you missed any of it while your fingers were busy tapping…or if you just want to relive all the fun, let’s take a look at the super hero action of Valiumtime’s Day!

Last Chance Valentines

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a friendly reminder that as of tomorrow morning (2/17) at 0800 GMT (3am EST) all of the Valentine’s Day items will leave our stores.  So be sure to make your final purchases before they’re gone until next year!

Just want will leave our stores?  ALL of the Valentine’s Day content will leave our stores…

You can find complete details on what arrived with Valentine’s Day & will be leaving in the morning here.

Need some help deciding on which premium items to buy?  You can find the complete Should I Buy for returning items here.  And the new Animatronic Bears here.

Also…Don’t forget to get your Sidekick Milhouse Skin before it’s gone tomorrow!  

So what will happen tomorrow, if anything?  Well no one quite knows for sure.  All we know is the content will be leaving at 0800 GMT (3am EST).  Something could hit later that morning or later that afternoon.  To be safe, I wouldn’t send any characters on long quests tonight.  Figure nothing more than 8hrs and be conservative who you send on tasks tomorrow, and for how long.

What are your thoughts on the Valentine’s Day mini-event?  Any items you picked up or something you choose to pass on?  Thoughts on what might be coming tomorrow? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

Valentine Rewind: Should I Spend Donuts on Returning Items

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Love is in the air in Springfield!  And our stores are full of premium items from Valentines past!

As with Valentines past (and other events) EA has decided to make old items new again, and give players who might have missed out on something a second chance to get it.  Of course that second chance doesn’t come with out a price, as many of the returning items are premium.

The Valentine themed premium items making a comeback this year are: Phineas Q Butterfat’s, Howard’s Flowers, Up Up & Buffet!, the Tunnel of Love, Madame Chaos and Mindy, Brandine & several decorations!

I know many of you have been asking if these items are worth your Sprinkles. Well before you hit that confirm button…let’s break down the pros and cons and take a look and see if these items are worth YOUR donuts!

Valentine’s Day Has Arrived in Springfield! (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

We’ve got ourselves a little Valentine’s Day Update in our games!  (finally)  Looks like love is going to hit our tapping devices after all…

2015-02-12 17.54.47

This is an in-game update…so nothing to see in the App Store.  Just start up your Springfield and the update should download for you (if it doesn’t, try hard closing TSTO & restarting it.  If that still doesn’t work try restarting your device)

As always more details as we go through them..but for now know that Lisa and Marge kick things off with some Auto-start dialogue..and then you’ll be prompted to send Lisa on an 8hr task.  So make sure she’s free.

Back with more in a bit…

Oh and just a heads up….one of the Addict’s most requested items is in this Event…click more to find out who/what it is!  Continue reading
