Spending actual cash on donuts for a character is back in TSTO. This is something EA’s been rolling out over the last few years, and it’s a new bonus for actually spending cash on donuts. (instead of just farming them) Where they attach a premium, limited-time, character to one of the donut bundles sometimes in addition to bonus donuts.
And I want to be perfectly clear…you do not need to buy these characters to complete an event. You can still play this game, and complete all the tasks and prizes, 100% free. These cash-for-character items are a new type of premium currency…because donuts have been so devalued with donut farming.
This time around we’re being offered Pixel Homer, a premium character, for a tray of 132 Donuts ($9.99 in the US)..no bonus this time around. While it’s hard for me to sit here and tell you if you should or shouldn’t spend actual cash on the game (spoiler, I think you should always spend at least a small amount…even if it’s $.99/year on the game if it brings you joy and you want to see it continue) I thought I’d do a quick breakdown of Pixel Homer, tasks, questline and other details you may be curious about.
So let’s consider this an abbreviated Should I Buy….
Remember, this app store update does not start the event it’s just the download for the event. The event will start TOMORROW August 4th at 11am ET…time zone converter hereET is New York time zone. So please, don’t ask why the event hasn’t started in your game if it’s not August 4th at 11am ET…
Anywho here’s the app store description and what’s in store for us:
So be sure to download the update, and be prepared to go Into the Simpsonsverse tomorrow, August 4th!
