Salutations Senors, Senoras, Senoritas, Statisticians & Strategists,

2D vs 3D

People continually ask me what the difference in 2D vs 3D is. In my latest rambling of words and crazy ideas in my head, I will break them down for you in a very basic and short post.

So this post is a mix of both my 2D art and also what I would like to see in a future game update. It goes more to a character I am kinda disappointed in within my TSTO game. Maggie Simpson, though silent, is such a strong character in all the episodes. I had thought they would’ve done SOOOO much more with her than have her only out when Marge walks around with her. The tasks she could do could be hilarious. Like not letting Burns take her candy, trying to “walk” around Springfield (but she keeps falling down), trying to “pet the dogs” at the Springfield Downs, even a Daycare can be tossed in for a new building to go with her. There she could have fights with other babies (similar to her movie “The Longest Daycare”). She could even ride Santa’s Lil Helper like a horse around town. Possibilities are endless. Not to mention she is ADORABLE.

New Building Price Guide For Level 34

EA just gave us happy tappers a gift of a new level. Number 34. We here at Addicts would like to provide you with as much up to date information as possible. To help assist my fellow bloggers, I am providing you the following information I compiled.

In case you didn’t know, the purchase prices of the buildings in the top 6 levels decrease in price until they hit their base cost. The starting point/most expensive is the building at the top level (like the new Level 34 buildings). Many are just starting on their TSTO tapping adventure, some are a few levels behind. For what ever reason it may be, below is an updated list of the current costs to purchase a building. The list is here to help you in your quest for information.
