595276_largerEA's The Simpsons: Tapped Out [Free] received a new update the other day, adding in a bunch of new stuff especially for maxed out players. Of most note, the update expands the cap to level 29 and allows you to pick up Agnes Skinner. Also, new buildings, including Sprawl-Mart have been added in addition to a new quest involving Agnes and new Springfield Park Entrance and Cobblestone Wall decorations.

The Simpsons: Tapped Out, for the 12 of you or so who haven't seen it yet, is a free-to-play city simulation game that tasks you with building a new Springfield after the first one got blown up. Along the way, you'll meet familiar faces and build familiar places. EA constantly updates the app, adding in stuff like the above for users.

You can download Tapped Out now, of course, but be warned: this thing seems to eat up folks' time.

    I stopped playing due to the grind. Mostly fun on account of the samples but wears very thin when a single grind session takes almost half an hour.

    • themostunclean

      Yeah. After about 15 minutes I already felt strangled by timers and premium currency so I deleted it. The game joking about the freemium model doesn't make it any more bearable.

      May have stuck around for the characters if I actually liked the show anymore. It stopped being good 10 years ago.

        Nah, the show is still good

    i play cuz im in too deep... didnt even spend a single cent though.. i usually do a 24h run every day and thats it

  • airwa1k

    Interestingly this was available before the app update.

    • tranceforma

      Yes but updated added more premium buildings and removed the snakes

    "Be warned that it eat up folks time??" I think it is just out to suck your money out of you. smh

  • FanboyOfNone

    I agree with the other comments. I only play since I'm "in too deep" myself, but the month long snake quest was a ridiculous click fest.

    Then the update? Lisa mentions something about a sale on premium items for the season finale. Stepping out of character to peddle donut items? No thanks.

    Without the Simpsons name, this would be a few thousand spots down on the App Store. Stay away.

      I agree guys. The high production values here are obvious but the grind is harsh and the constant user feedback required just to collect XP and money is just far too intensive. The only reason I've stuck with Jurassic Park Builder is because maintenance is pretty minimal. You simple tap once to collect your funds.

      What really killed Tapped Out for me was the multiple disconnects from the server. I only played until Level 5 and deleted it last night after only having it installed for no more than two hours? It shouldn't be so reliant on the server.

      Unless you're a diehard Simpsons fan, stay away. Even then I'd recommend something like The Simpsons (beat em up).
