Should I Spend Donuts On- Snow People/Animals

Once there was a snowman, snowman, snowman
Once there was a snowman, tall, tall, tall.
In the sun he melted, melted, melted.
In the sun he melted, small, small, small.

With a new Holiday Update and Limited Premium items just added to our menu, it may be overwhelming trying to decide whether to buy or to pass on them. With that limited-time label on items I know it can be tempting to just buy everything you can. But, have no fear! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth your donuts & what you might want to hold off on. Continue reading “Should I Spend Donuts On- Snow People/Animals”

OH HOMER, WHERE ART THOU?

Howdy everybody!

Just wanted to get some info out about a possible glitch that could effect every one’s gameplay.

Even though I’ve been playing since last Halloween and been very fortunate to have only minor glitches so far, I’ve had a pretty serious one during this update.

Homer is missing!  

Homer

Yesterday I sent Homer on his 12 hour Halloween task.  I laughed as he grew bigger to eat ghosts and then took off PACMAN-style eating donuts.  While I followed Homie to get screenshots, I watched as he continued off my game screen off into the deep blue sea.  No worries right?

I didn’t think anything of it until Homer wasn’t in my town today.  Of course, I thought I was SMRTER than him and tried to find him by setting new tasks but apparently, he is trapped in the twilight zone under the water to the bottom left of my town.  I can see his yellow thumbs up briefly on a green background.

homer twilight zone

All the usual glitch fixes have not worked and I have an e-mail in with EA to see if it can be fixed.  Just wanted to make sure I got this info out to all you dedicated Ghostbusting Addicts.  If you’ve had success with the task in your town, I would not panic.  This glitch may just be isolated to the Wookiee but I would feel terrible if I didn’t use my soap box to let y’all know, especially since so many game tasks require the big guy.

As soon as I know the fix, I will let you know.  True moral of the story is to not freak about glitches. They work themselves out and it is really only a game. Sometimes they are even hilarious.

If you want to be on the safe side, be careful of Homer’s 12 hour Halloweeny task. TTFN Addicts… Wookiee out!

UPDATE 3 OCT 13 @ 2219 PST

I have been in contact with EA and they stated they are aware of this problem.  Some people’s characters have been disappearing when they do their Halloween tasks.  Provided it is not Homer or Lisa, the quick fix is to store the building they came with.  I did this for Martin (The Springfield Library) and he reappeared.  As a bonus, EA gave me 17 donuts so I would recommend letting EA know of any big glitches you may have.  Happy tapping and I hope your game is glitch free!

WAWW… MORE MANSIONS

What’s up Addicts? Here’s another edition of What A Wookiee Wants. You might be wondering why I get my own forum to do this and the simple answer is, who knows? lol. The long answer includes some complex mathematics, quantum physics and a theory that EA is afraid of my Wookiee rage and prepared to add at least one thing I recommend every update. While we all hold our breath for this fantasy to be true, I’ll continue, I like to think of my rambling on this post as an episode of PADZ on Channel 6…

Quests start right after the video of Homer blowing up Springfield Ends
-Square One
All dialogue spoke by Homer here:
“Hello, anybody here? Huh.  I guess it’s true what they say about atomic blasts—the safest place to be is ground zero. I wonder where my loving family is…and Bart.  Task book is then highlighted.  Whoa, whoa – if there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s when you open books, bad things happen”
Prompted to build the Simpson House, 6 seconds.

Homer: “Lisa!  Thank God you’re here to guide me through this tutorial.”
Lisa: “ What happened?”
Homer: “Difficult to say sweetie.  The town blew up, I built our house and you showed up.  All we know for sure is, I’m completely blameless.”
Lisa: “Hmm.  Maybe if we keep building things, Mom and Bart will show up too.”
Homer: “I’m sure they will.  This thing would be way too sad if they didn’t”
Lisa: “Then let’s do it.  But first, we should clean this place up a bit.”
Homer: “You’re joking right?”

Springfield Cleaners Pt. 1 Despite his objections, Homer cleans up some of the debris left by the explosion (6 seconds – don’t make him clean up everything – just one piece is enough for this stage.)

Springfield Cleaners Pt. 2 Lisa joins in the Springfield clean up (6 seconds, Lisa finds a donut)

Lisa: “Hey, I found a donut!”
Homer: “It looks like one of the donuts from the break room.”
Lisa: “It must have been irradiated when the plant blew up.  Now it has the power to locally speed up time…as well as to buy things, for some reason.”

The New Evergreen Terrace Pt. 1 Build a road (prompted by Lisa)
