Should I Buy…Returning Halloween Items?? Part 2

SIDE NOTE BUNNY: Yes, I saw the FB post about the “creator”…and YES…I got an idea just what it is. 😉 Stay tuned for info WHEN it goes live. 

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Halloween time in Springfield! Leaves are falling, there’s a dimness to our towns, something is floating in the water…oh and items from Halloween Past have returned to our stores!

As with Halloweens past (and other events) EA has decided to make old items new again, and give players who might have missed out on something a second chance to get it.  Of course that second chance doesn’t come with out a price, as many of the returning items that were once free are now premium.

Recently EA brought back several items from 2013 and 2012, Burns Monster, Ghost Zapper, Ultrahouse 2, & Super Collider & Black Hole!.  Now many of you are curious if any of these items are worth your hard earned donuts, and we’ve broken a lot of these down for the previous events…however we decided it’d be great to give them another look in a Halloween Should I Buy reboot post!

So now let’s take a look and see if these items are worth YOUR donuts!

The Kidz Aren’t Alright: Hugo

Do you hear that? Me either. It is so nice and quiet and… OH NO!! Spoke to soon! Here comes the kids! D’OH!!

In our silly lil games, there are some smaller sized characters roaming around that don’t seem to get as much attention as the adults.

“Won’t somebody think of the children??!!” Lol.

Well, we thought of the children, decided that the kids aren’t alright, figured it was time someone took them out of the time out chair, so we can give you an idea of what it’s like growing up in Springfield.

Candy Time!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Candy time is back!   For a this weekend (it looks like this ends Monday 11/03 at 0800GMT) you can purchase Candy (and nails) from the store!  Of course to do so you’ll have to spend donuts, but they’re actually priced fairly well.  (At least in my opinion anyway…)

Here’s what you can get:

Candy

It looks like all the prizes from the Gold and Silver Treat bags can be purchased…which is great if you’re struggling to collect Pumpkins or Chocolates!  🙂

Remember…this will disappear on 11/3 at 0800GMT (4 am EDT)…however it looks like it will be reappearing each weekend…like the Elixir.

What do YOU think of the candy for sale?  Have you purchased any?  What items are you currently saving to craft?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

Weekend Update: October 26th- November 1st

Goodbye Phase 2, Hello Phase 3: Long Protein Strings Are Here!

FYI Make SURE you update your game in the App Store (I know it’s on Google Play, not sure on the others…please let me know).  This Update will ensure you have the PROPER Version of Phase 3 (you should be earning 5 Protein Strings/squish…if you’re only earning 3 Update)

Update 8:45am EDT: UltraHouse 2 is back as well…i’ve updated it below.  Also, for those wondering…you can still craft prizes from the Probes Prize box.  So if you missed out on those they’ll still be there as well.

Also…wondering if you’re the only one who can craft another Hover-Copter?  You’re not.  Apparently it’s going around.  If you look in your Ray Gun Prize box it may show that you didn’t win it, even if you did.  Mine’s showing no Hover-Copter…but it’s still in my Springfield.  So yes…you can craft another one.  BUT I wouldn’t.  1. you don’t know if it’ll be able to be placed in your Springfield and 2. why spend the items on that when there is new stuff to craft?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The switch has happened…Ray Guns are gone & Protein Strings have arrived!  We’ll be working through the details of the new phase and have any changes up for you soon…but the basic principle remains the same.
