No other word for it but Déjà vu… July 4th items in the WDTCF archives

What’s up Tappers?  Seriously… does anyone else know a series of words to describe Déjà vu?  It’s a hard one to define any other way.

The July 4th update has come into our games and with it some really cool stuff. Add to that the return of previous items coveted by some and it’s a pretty fun affair for all.  Here at Team Awesome Sauce, we always love providing you with up-to-date content and info about all the buildings, characters and decorations.  What’s even better is when we’ve actually done this before an update even drops.  I dug through the vaults (lots of fur and cheetos dust in there btw) and figured rather than rehashing previous posts, I could just share posts you may or may not have seen.  Sound like a good idea?

Whatever you are, be a good one.

Well, hello there friends.  You know, there’s nothing like a casual stroll through all your neighborinos towns.  So many cool things to see.  Building placement, decorating finesse, 2D/3D amazingness, Abraham Lincoln….

Wait, did I just say Lincoln?  How’d he get there?  Can I get him?  How the heck does he have anything to do with The Simpsons?

Well, I’m here today to try and answer these questions for those of you who may have noticed the 16th President of the United States wandering around in Springfield.

Should I Spend Donuts on Devil Flanders?

With all of the Halloween premium items that are limited-time it may be overwhelming trying to decide which items to buy and what to pass on. 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.

Wondering if you should add Devil Flanders to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding Devil Flanders to your Springfield.

ned_devilflanders_menu

Character: Devil Flanders
Donut Price: 75
Unique?: Yes
Pros:
-The only costume, I’m aware of, for Ned Flanders.
-Humorous Alter-ego for Flanders
-Great outdoor tasks
-Limited-Time costume from last year that was brought back. Great for new tappers and Android players who couldn’t play TSTO last year because it wasn’t available on Android.

Cons:
-No quest line with it.
-For 75 donuts you’re not adding a new character or building, just a costume.
-Does not earn premium rates on tasks

Final Thought:
Honestly…if you can swing it, I say go for it. This is one of the more sought after items to the game, and the fact that EA has brought it back for this Halloween is AWESOME. At 75 donuts it’s not the worst item you can buy & some of his outdoor tasks are great!

Devil Flanders’s Tasks:

Task Length Payout Building
Show his Wrath 1hr $70/17xp Outside
Check in with the Minions 4hrs $175/45xp Power Plant
Emergency Satanic Bible Study 8hrs $275/70xp Flander’s House
Sign up New ‘Clients’ 12hrs $420/150xp Outside
Inspect the Hell Labs 24hrs $600/150xp Church

Should I Spend Donuts on the Raven?

Character: The Raven
Donut Price: 30 Donuts
Unique?: Yes

Pros:
-Reasonably priced
-Flys around when tapped
-Limited-Time character from last year that was brought back. Great for new tappers and Android players who couldn’t play TSTO last year because it wasn’t available on Android.

Cons:
-No tasks are assigned for the Raven
-Does not come with an unlock quest
-No interaction with other characters and/or animals in Springfield

Final Thought:
Personally I think you’re better off saving your donuts and passing on this one.  The Raven really provides no benefit to your Springfield and aside from the entertainment value of his flight, has really no return for your invested donuts.  So, unless you’ve already purchased all of the other premium characters or you’re a completest, I’d pass on this one and save your donuts.
