Springfield Showoff: Halloween 2016

As we sit here frakkin files, pulling pics, and typing a million words a minute to get our readers the latest updates and information…we find ourselves sometimes forgetting to stop and enjoy our own games. More so our neighboreenos. So we try to make it a point to hop in n out of the towns now and then to see what cool things YOU are up to. So we have decided we want to continue to focus more attention (as if we don’t already ūüėõ ) on YOU…our readers. Time to time we will be peaking into your towns, checking our Flickr, and also the posts in the comments below to see what cool ideas and designs YOU have come up with to make your towns unique and…well…YOU. So here is YOUR chance to show off all your hard work, time, donuts & in game cash spent. Send us your work, no matter how big or small. Brag about it to the world. We want you to. (That and Bunny loves to see other designs and get inspiration from it.) Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our¬†“SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

Feral Monsters Evolve Again!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

As some¬†of you have noticed…your Feral Monsters (aka Rats) have evolved yet again this morning. All that RedBull must have made them hungry because they’ve plumped up..and now they’re HANGRY for more…

charactersets_feralbeast03Clearing these winged creatures requires FOUR¬†taps. ¬†Quadruple the taps also means, quadruple¬†the currency! ¬†These Plumped Up Flying Ferals will earn you 10ico_cur_thoh2016_clapboard_lg¬†each time you tap them…so¬†40 ico_cur_thoh2016_clapboard_lg¬†each when you clear them.

Pretty sweet right?

Note the new Feral Monsters always fly…they don’t crawl around on the ground.¬†

The¬†smaller Winged Monsters are still around as well…

feralbeast02_defeated_image_2

Remember this guys take 2 taps to clear and earn 10ico_cur_thoh2016_clapboard_lg each tap.

So winged earns 20ico_cur_thoh2016_clapboard_lg when cleared
Giant Winged, earn 40ico_cur_thoh2016_clapboard_lg when cleared.

Oh and the original Feral Monsters…well what’s the old saying? ¬†Evolve or die? ¬†Yea…they’re not around anymore…

Should I Buy the Shinning Hotel and Maze Bundle?

shinning-main

As with all of the recent updates, and especially the HUGE major updates (including the one in which we now find ourselves deeply immersed), there are LOADS of opportunities to purchase buildings, decorations, and characters from updates past. Some call ’em “Retreads,” others call ’em “A Second Chance to Get What I Missed,” and still others call them nothing at all…but still pull the Donut Trigger when they are offered.

In this installment of “Should I Buy?” I cover the Shinning Hotel and Maze combo. Is my DTF (Donut Trigger Finger) itchy? Or will I keep the safety locked firmly in position?

Let’s take a look….

How Does the THOH 2016 Stack Up to the Past?

thohrated

First of all, I realize that we are barely 1/3 into the huge THOH 2016 update in TSTO. ¬†However, while I realize that Alissa is resolute in her decision not to talk about items we haven’t seen in the game before they actually come out, I am going to break that rule and talk about some things we are going to see in Act II and Act III. ¬†I, like many of you, sneak off to some of the “spoiler sites” and can tell you that what I have seen is…

Hold on… I have a text coming through. It’s from Alissa.

Uhm. Ok. So I won’t be talking about a lot of items that are coming in Act II and Act III. Holyfreakinshirt...That girl is everywhere…and she has some really threatening emojis!!

Actually…I really don’t need to talk about what’s coming, because I have a pretty clear opinion about how THOH 2016 stacks up with previous offerings.

And you might jut be surprised at what I have to say…
