Now there's even more stuff to do in The Simpsons: Tapped Out [Free]. Yesterday, EA rolled out another content update to its free-to-play Simpsons game, adding a few "limited edition" buildings, quests, and characters. There's even a new collectible currency: Santa Coins, which can be used to "get seasonal facades" for your Tapped Out buildings.

This is probably one of the biggest Christmas-themed updates we'll see this year, as EA went all-out. Santa's Little Helper and Santa Homer are two of the new characters, for instance, and one of the building additions is a reindeer feeding farm called Santa's Village. If you're into the specifics, bang on this link to catch the full notes.

The Simpsons: Tapped Out hit the App Store this March. It's seen six updates since, and will probably see a few more since the game is clicking with folks.

    i can't even get it to load up now. :/

    • D Schutz

      looks like the servers for the game are getting hammered. wouldn't be surprised if they picked up a truckload of new players due to the update.

    • Rob M.

      Try deleting and reinstalling the game. I did and it works fine now. You won't lose any of your work by deleting and reinstalling.

  • Rob M.

    The game won't even load now that I updated with the Christmas app.. WTF is going on with this game?!?! Grrrr!!!

    • Sonny Williamson

      Try deleting and reinstalling the game. As long as you're not on a first or second-gen iPhone or iPod Touch of course, in which case it's no longer compatible.

      • Rob M.

        Thanks! Giving it a try now.. was afraid to do that initially because I didn't want to lose any progress... hope this works!

      • Astrid Afanador

        Won't this delete the data? Will I have to start all over again?

      • Rob M.

        No, not at all.

        It doesn't delete your data because it's stored on the Origin server, not in your iPad. Once I reinstalled the app it was as simple as signing in like always. Try it and good luck!

      • Astrid Afanador

        Thank you!

      • Rob M.

        It worked! THANK YOU for the suggestion.

  • Aaron Marroquin

    Is this game any good/worth investing time in? It looks interesting, but there are so many games to try!

    • Martin Gumucio

      It's not really a game, more of an interactive lava-lamp that is constantly asking for your money. Having said that its quite fun!

  • Victoria Louise Smith

    grrrr so update it but then no-one can get on it - so annoying

  • lαurєn cєchvαlα

    Yeah mine downloaded fine, but once I bought some donuts it closed the app and wont open past the fox screen. I tried deleting the app and reinstalling, tried restarting the phone... nothing

    • Rae Rae

      You have to have about 100 coins to get the decorations ... Because decorations are like 50 coins a house .... So keep collecting !

    I can't finish the decorate the houses quest. I've finished 12 out of 13 and don't have any if the other buildings to decorate to finish. Is there a way to avoid building one of them, which would cost me actual money to buy more donuts. ??????

    I'm on level 25 but I do not have most of the quests from previous levels. I'm beginning to get annoyed that I do not have channel 6, hibberts practice, hospital and now mr burns manor. Is there anything I can do to speed it up.
