Tapped Out Up-Dates

We originally ran this post back on August 28th and we’ve been updating it as we go.  However, with a recent increase in questions from you guys about when each update hit…and so you can do your own tracking and analyzing….we’ve decided to repost this.  This way you guys can make your own judgement about whether or not EA is releasing new content the same way they’ve done in the past or not.

With so much talk and anticipation coming up more and more for the next TSTO game update we decided it’d be fun to go back and review all of the release dates of previous TSTO updates to try and see if we can guess when the next update will arrive. While there truly is no way to know exactly what day and time the next update will appear in the game, it’s still fun to speculate.

The Van Houten 2020 Multi-Event was Update #197 to The Simpsons Tapped Out (although EA says it’s #201 🤷‍♀️). Here’s the complete list of each update and its release date:

What do YOU think about the update list?  Do you think EA is following the same pattern as last year?  More updates?  Less?  Sound off in the comments below and let us know what YOU think, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

Where did THAT come from – Bachelor Arms

Hey hey hey Addicterinos!

No more mist, no more ghoulies, goo, gremlins or haunted buildings!  Who knew there was so much money to collect in your town, right?  The vandals are back to spray paint your useless, errr, I mean non-money earning buildings (well… some of them) and Level 37 is here.  It’s officially Milhouse Day!

Milhouse Day

Level 37 already seems like a pretty swell update to the game and as further proof that EA loves us, we got another female character (150 for a character/building ain’t too shabby, eh?) who just happens to be the better half of Milhouse’s parents.  For free (my favorite number by the way), we also got Mr. Van Houton with his apartment building but where the heck does THAT come from?

Where did THAT come from – Springfield Museum of Natural History

Well hello there all you classy tappers and tappettes!

As if the Halloween Update wasn’t enough to keep us busy, EA heard the groans of boredom from some and dropped Level 36 into the mix.  Still think they don’t listen to the consumers?

In the mix of 36 (rhymed intentionally), came some really cool new stuff.  One item though that apparently isn’t too popular is the Springfield Museum of Natural History.  I personally love this building because I am a huge history buff.  Some day, I hope to teach history in my real life.  For now, I’ll stick with finding the “history” behind the cool new stuff we keep on getting.

Included in the new update were the highly desired Patty and Selma Bouvier, Selma’s beloved Jub-Jub, the Spinster City Apartments, Springfield Pet Shop, and the one and only Disco Stu & Stu’s Disco!

-When Level 35 hit the Addicts team had it covered! Wookiee helped us all figure out What in the world a Jub-Jub is! As well as breaking down Gil Gunderson and his Level Up! Message, in The. Best.

-With all new levels comes new premium items. This week we broke down if Disco Stu & Jub-Jub are worth your donuts!

Of course this week hasn’t just been all about Level 35 here at Addicts. We’ve been busy little Tappers this week and brought you so many other great posts as well…..

-Last Sunday we showed you how some good tips for redesigning your Springfield with the post Springfield of Tomorrow; Build a Better Springfield. And of course Bunnydud got our week started right with her funny post about how her addiction truly is costing her everything in TSTO! (Oh and there’s a great Sideshow Bob 2D in there as well!)

-On Monday we asked you what do you think will be coming first, the Halloween event or Level 34. Well 61.25% of you got it right in saying Level 35! (For the record 61.25% said Level 35, 18.8% said Level 35 & Halloween Event as 1 update, 11.28% said something else & bringing up the rear only 8.27% of you thought the Halloween Event would come first.

-On Friday Wookiee told us just what he wanted in his WAWW post, telling EA to introduce Mr. Teeny as a playable character in TSTO!

Weekend Update: August 31st- September 6th 2013


Happy Weekend Tappers!

It’s been just over a week now since Level 34 hit our devices. Tappers who started right away should be just about finishing up the Chalmers quest line and tappers who started the quest a little bit late might be smack dab in the middle of the Level. Either way, if you’ve been busy tapping away this week here’s your chance to catch up on what you’ve might have missed here at Addicts!

-Last weekend Wookiee helped Tappers discover the lost ride at Krustyland, Krusty’s Broken Koaster Kars. You can check out how to make Krusty’s Kars in your Krustyland here.

-This past week Wookiee and Nick took a deeper look at a couple of the new decorations level 3 brought tappers, starting with Nick’s look at the World’s Largest Zircona and it’s connection to The Simpsons. Then Wookiee took a closer look at Chalmer’s _onda, the newest car to join the Tapped Out World!

-Alissa started to break down the basics of the Conform-o-meter in your Springfield. You can find the basics here and how many points you’ll need to max out the meter here.

-We also took a look at some issues you may be having with TSTO in Losing your Jebidiah Springfield Statue and your game resetting back to level one!

-EA made a couple of updates and announcements this week as well. They released a minor iOS update earlier this week and announced that all tappers should be creating a Origin ID, or risk losing your Springfield forever!

-This past week also brought new updates to our Walkthroughs page, focusing on Level 23 and Bumblebee Man. Of course if you missed any of our level 34 updates you can find them on our Walkthroughs page as well

-In his “Are You Ready For Some Football” Nick made the connection between The Simpsons and football, in anticipation of the start of the NFL football season here in the US.

-Nick also took us back in time to 1999 as he uncovered the history behind Tomacco!

-Bunny Nerded out on us this week, in her Nerd Alert post, going over the finer technical details of things like Blue Stacks and Jail Breaking!

-As always there was certainly no shortage of 2D and 3D posts this week. Bunny took a look at 2D vs 3D and Wookiee announced a Wookiee’s 2D Challenge (be sure to get your designs in by Monday night!)!

-Finally, Friday saw the first meeting of TSTO Anonymous with group leader Wookiee! And Wookiee also took a look at what the Halloween update might look like!

It has been a week here at Addicts, full of great posts filled with humor and packed with information! Here’s to the week ahead Tappers, and here’s hoping we’ll see a Halloween Event this week!


Happy Tapping Friends! 


Tapped Out Update for iOS

Hello Tappers!

Just like Android had one a couple of weeks ago, EA has released an update for Tapped Out for iOS users only.  Nothing visibly different, as far as the external display on the game, so most likely this is just an update on the files of the game.  
Could be fixing a glitch or two or it could be prep for an upcoming event or update.  Either way if you’re playing Tapped out on iOS be sure to go to iTunes and update your game!

Happy Tapping Friends!

Weekend Update: August 25th-31st 2013

What a week for Tapped Out!  Just as many Tappers were finishing level 33, level 34 was released!  With the release of levels 33 and 34 so close together (not to mention Krustyland just before level 33!) Tappers will be busy tapping away throughout the weekend.
We’ve been busy at Addicts too!  And in case you missed anything from the Addicts team this past week here’s your chance to catch up! Continue reading

Weekend Update

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!
