If TSTO is illegal… then send my ______ to jail!

Hey hidey ho Tapperinos!

By now it’s probably safe to say that most Addicts are either neck deep in Level 35 or foaming at the mouth in their journey towards it. While I am happy to see Homer’s archnemises finally in the game… I thought about how easy it is to forget cool characters that we received just a little more than a month ago.

Weekend Update

20130823-194911.jpg
Happy Weekend Tappers!

It’s been just over a week now since Level 33 hit our devices. Some of you might be right in the middle of the Level (after all it does take about 11 days with out Donuts) and others might be finished with Level 33, donut users like me (I like to think we keep EA in business with our donut buying), and hungry for more. Addicts was designed for tappers on both end of the donut world, and everyone in-between, and (I hope) our posts reflect it. So if you’ve missed anything from the Addicts team this week here’s your chance to catch up!

New Feature in Level 33!

Some of you may be aware of this already, but for those that aren’t i wanted to share a minor update with you that may have gotten lost in the Level 33 commotion.  With the release of level 33 you can now put parking meters directly on the curbs in your Springfield.

Yes, EA has finally decided to allow you to make your Springfield look more realistic and move the parking meters that much closer to the road.

Here’s a couple of shots I grabbed from my own Springfield’s “Downtown” area earlier:

As you can see, they can be placed either way on the curb, so you can accommodate street parking or lot parking.

Now your Springfield can look a little more legit and Eddie and Lou will have an easier time getting to the meters to write those tickets!

Will you be moving your meters to the curb?

Tapped Out Walkthrough: Level 33 Part 4

Hey Tappers!

Back with the 4th and final part of the Level 33 Main Quest walkthrough!  Miss the first 3 parts?  You can find them here: Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.
When we last left off Eddie, Lou and Chief Wiggum were rounding up, just about, all of the residents of Springfield and arresting them for anything and everything under the sun.  We continue the walkthrough with Chief Wiggum realizing, maybe it wasn’t such a good idea to arrest kids…

Turbo Tappin’ Level 33: Eddie and Lou

Hello Tappers!

Back with another Turbo Tappin’ TSTO walkthrough.  This time we’re going a little back in time for those on Level 38, but something perhaps in the future for new tappers.  We’re Turbo Tappin’ Level 33 and Eddie & Lou!

For those of you who don’t know Turbo Tappin’ is our quick version of a walkthrough for the Level/Update/Character where we give you who starts the quest, the task and what you earn.  This way you have your quick guide on who to keep free and when.  This is great for our fellow Addicts who love to copy and paste the walkthrough into their device for quick reference.  You can check out more of our Turbo Tappin’ Walkthroughs here.

So let’s get to Tappin’ on Level 33!

The Sunsphere and The Simpsons

simpsons tapped out sunsphere wigsphere
Hello Fellow Tapped Out Addicts!

Level 33 has brought us the Sunsphere!  Since it’s another one of those additions to the game that may leave some tappers scratching their heads (after all it’s not in Springfield) I thought it’d be fun to break down the Simpsons connection.

Simpsons Connection
The Sunsphere is from a 1996 episode of the Simpsons “Bart on the Road”. In the episode Bart spends the day at the DMV with Patty and Selma. When they’re not looking he makes a fake driver’s license.
After seeing a brochure for the World’s Fair, Bart uses the fake ID to rent a car and drive Milhouse, Martin and Nelson to Knoxville, TN.  They arrive in Knoxville only to discover the World’s Fair was actually in 1982 and the Sunsphere has been renamed the Wigsphere, since it’s now wig warehouse.
Real World
The Sunsphere is a real attraction in Knoxville that was built for the 1982 World’s Fair. In 2007 the Sunsphere was renovated and restored.  It’s now a 266ft multi-level restaurant with observation decks. Not a wig in site!

Will you be adding the Sunsphere to your town?

Should I Spend Donuts on Little Lady Justice?

Level 33 is here (woohoo!) and with it comes Little Lady Justice, a new premium decoration for your Springfield.  I’m sure you’re asking “Should I Spend Donuts On This?”  Well before you hit that confirm button, lets break down Little Lady Justice and if she’s worth your donuts:
thesimpsonstappedoutlittleladyjustice
Decoration: Little Lady Justice
Donut Price: 75 donuts
Unique?: No, you can have as many as you want
Bonus: 2.75% (bonus cash and XP to all tasks)
Bonus % Per Donut Spent: 0.037%
Conform-o-Meter Points: 10 Obedience 
Where Can I Place It?: Little Lady Justice is one of the few decorations that can be placed on your land, on the beach and even on the Squidport Boardwalk

Final Thought: At 75 Donuts Little Lady Justice is one of the more expensive premium decorations in TSTO.  It’s actually the same cost as the Boardwalk Fountain with the same Bonus percentage awarded, except the Boardwalk Fountain is unique and awards 1000 vanity points.  It’s a fairly decent bonus percentage, but not the greatest return for the amount of donuts spent.
If you think she’s a great fit for your Springfield I say add it, but if you’re more concerned about maximizing your bonus payouts there are plenty of other (less expensive) decorations that award a higher % rate per donut spent.

What do you think?  Will you be paying 75 donuts for Little Lady Justice?

Tapped Out Walkthrough: Level 33 Part 2

Hey Tappers!
Back with Part II of the Level 33 main questline. Missed the first part of the Level 33 Walkthrough?  You can find it here Part I
When we last left Eddie and Lou were back in Springfield (via the S.W.A.T Van) and in an effort to “crack down on crime” Chief Wiggum drank a little too much of Cletus’s Moonshine while questioning him.  We pick the walkthrough back up with Eddie, Lou and Chief Wiggum trying to find “big crime”…and it not working out so well…

Should I Spend Donuts On Arnie Pye?

Level 33 is here (woohoo!) and with it comes the much anticipated Arnie Pye.  I’m sure you’re asking “Should I Spend Donuts On This?”  Well before you hit that confirm button, lets break down the Pros and Cons of adding Arnie to your Springfield.

Arnie Pye Tapped Out Unlock Message

Character: Arnie Pye
Donut Price: 85 donuts
Before you can purchase Arnie Pye you must be Level 23 or higher and you’ll have to have completed the Western Civilization 101 Quest.
Pros: 
-Reasonably priced.  At 85 donuts he’s the same price as the Rich Texan and less than Dr. Nick.
-Premium tasks that earn 50% more than regular characters
-Voiced
-Comes with a quest line
-Great outdoor quests, in fact all but 1 of his tasks are outdoor tasks.
-Unlocks a 2 day task at Channel 6
-Introduces the first ‘live action; mode of transportation in the game with his helicopter flying around your Springfield.  (Perhaps a sign of things to come for TSTO in the future?)

Cons:
– Doesn’t come with a building, and his helicopter only appears during tasks.
-At 85 donuts he’s at the higher end of the premium characters that don’t come with a building.
-After his quest line he has no other interactions with other characters in Springfield.

Final Thought: Personally I think this is a great purchase to make if you’re looking at adding premium characters in the game. He adds an exciting new element to the game (with the helicopter flying) and comes with 5 tasks (4 of which are outside).  Arnie is a character worth the donuts!
