The Simpsons Tapped Out
I’m not much of a gamer but recently discovered this game and likes it quite a lot. Not surprising to me of course given that I like everything about The Simpsons. Actually the game is very simple and lack of challenge so if it wasn’t about The Simpsons there wouldn’t be any compelling reason for me to keep playing.
The story is Springfield explodes because of a failure in the nuclear power plant (not surprisingly caused by Homer). The game starts with Homer and Lisa trying to rebuild new Springfield. You unlock characters as you complete tasks. You build houses and collect taxes to buy more items to decorate the town. Here’s what my Springfield looks like:
I like the fact that you can just assign the tasks to the characters and after 8 or 12 hours you tapped them to collect the money and experience points (required to pass levels) they earned. So you don’t have to play it constantly.
There are lots of premium items available but I found the pricing too expensive so I’m just playing it for free. For example you can buy 300 donuts for £14 and for that amount of donuts you can only buy a few premium characters (Otto and Professor Frink for instance). I think for that money you should be able to buy everything in that game. Still I’m happy with the free Springfield I built.
