Simpsons Wrestling Act 3 Is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast, and that means Act 3 of the Simpsons Wrestling is live in Springfield!

Things kick off for Act 3 with some dialogue between Homer and Burns…

Homer: Just give that double A-hole the deed to the power plant so those SEW wrestlers will leave!
Burns: Handing over the plant would be like killing one of my own children. Don’t look that up.

This triggers the Act 3 questline, Of Hosses and Hookers, and is followed by 4hr tasks for 5 Springfielders and Burns, as well as a task to collect Act 3 Currency (200).  Of Hosses and Hookers is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of the Act 3 prizes.

Let’s take a look at what else is in store during Act 3…

Simpsons Wrestling Act 3 Starts Sunday

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Posting this a little early because of the impending weekend….so, just a friendly reminder that SUNDAY morning, April 26th, Act 3 of the Simpsons Wrestling Event will be starting.  The official start time is 10am ET.

The Act 2 (and Act 1) questline won’t be going anywhere, so if you haven’t finished the prizes you’ll have a chance to complete it even after Act 3 starts.

Also, here’s some inside info to help you prepare for Act 3 to start…

During Act 3 it’s up to Bart and Dr. Bonebreak to save Springfield! Of course, you’ll have to follow along with the dialogue to find out what happens, but the same characters used for Act 2 currency tasks should be used for the Act 3 currency tasks, including a brand new one for Act 3! So we’re looking at:
Homer
Marge
Bart
Lisa
Grampa
Burns
Smithers
Moe
Prof. Werner von Brawn (Premium)
Rumbleina (Premium)
New Premium Character for Act 3

You’ll also need Burns and 5 Springfielders free for the initial questline objective…

There will also be one new premium character combo introduced during Act 3 (a Gil Deal!), and that character will be able to help with the currency earning for Act 3.  (150 donuts will be needed if you’d like to purchase the combo)

And that’s it my friends!  Be prepared for Act 3 to start up Sunday morning!

Thoughts on Act 2?  Ready for Act 3?  Excited to see where the story goes?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

Black History Month Act 3 Is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Sorry about the late post of this one, weekends can be unpredictable around here! 

It’s officially after 10am here on the East Coast, and that means Act 3 of the Black History Event is live in Springfield!

Things kick off for Act 3 with some dialogue between Ralph, Lou, and Wiggum…

Ralph: Uncle Lou the cop, will you tell me a story for my school report? You’re my favorite policeman ever!
Wiggum: What about me, Ralph?
Ralph: You’re not even my favorite Daddy ever. That’s Babar!
Wiggum:
Lou: How about I tell you the story of my toughest case? The disappearance of Lewis Clark.
Wiggum: Ooh, I never heard this one!
Lou: *sighs* You were there, Chief.

This triggers the Act 3 questline, In the Lukewarm of the Twilight, and is followed by 4hr task for Wiggum, as well as a task to collect Act 3 Currency (400).  In the Lukewarm of the Twilight is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of the Act 3 prizes.

Let’s take a look at what else is in store during Act 3…

Valentine’s Day 2019: Love, Springfieldian Style Act 1 is Live! (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, it’s been teased and now it’s officially time for Valentine’s Day 2019 in Springfield!  Or Love, Springfieldian Style…

Yesterday we received the App Store update that brought a brand new town portrait feature to Springfield! I should note there are a few initial bugs with this, particularly on Amazon devices and iOS.  I’ve posted a Town Portrait Bug Thread here, so if you’re having issues with your Town Portrait feature post your comment over there.  This way they’re in one place, EA can view your problems and if it’s fixable others in the community can assist.

And now it’s time!  It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast which means Love Fest 2019 can begin!

Things will kick off with an AUTOMATIC dialog start with Marge, Bart & Lisa.  The initial quests will be 6s tasks for Marge, Bart & Lisa.  After you’ve completed that set of tasks you’ll have another 6s task for Lisa.  Once completed you’ll start the Lisa Live questline, which is the week 1 story to follow….

I’m working my way through this, and will continuously be updating this post.  So continue to refresh and check back for new details.  Once the post is completely updated i’ll add (Updated and Complete) to the title.

Where Did THAT Come From – Big Butt Skinner Balloon

Summertime… and the livings easy…

Hola Amigos!

So in a period of EA downtime, our game has brought us a bunch of returning items at discount prices. Pretty cool that people get the chance to get items a little cheaper but mega cool that there’s at least one new item in the midst of it all. Sunday’s Gil Deal included the Big Butt Skinner Balloon for 95 donuts. But what the heck does this item have to do with the Best, Show. Ever? Is it a parade balloon, Bart Simpson prank or heavenly omen? Let’s take a look at the show and find out.

In-Game Update Gil Deal: End of School Promotion

Glitch/Bug Alert: There’s apparently a bug going around with Jimbo that several of you are reporting.  If you purchase him he disappears from your Springfield.  If that happens, contact EA and let them know.
You can contact them here.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Looks like we’ve got ourselves a little in-game update for donuts to keep us busy over the weekend!

2015-06-12 14.25.53

When you start up your Springfield you’ll see our good friend Gil’s back…and this time with an end of school promotion for us all.

As always more details as we go through them….details of what Gil has in store for us below…

ico_stor_single_endofschool2015Just a thought…usually updates like this make me think that EA’s biding time because they’re working on something else.  Especially because this offer is only for the weekend, it makes me think we’ll see something much bigger early next week.  So try not to get discouraged with this little update…since everything costs donuts.  I think we’ll see bigger and better things next week 🙂 Continue reading

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Anywho…so Ol’ Gil’s in town and just what is he offering this time?  Well…for a limited-time (ie until, Tuesday 4/7) you can purchase one of the items Gil picked up on his Polynesian travels..the Easter island God.  The Easter Island God is an all new decoration for your Springfield.

Now I’m sure you’re wondering…”is this something I should take Gil up on?  Or am I better off saving my donuts for something better?”  Well…before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this stone head to YOUR Springfield!
