The Simpsons: Tapped Out Hits Google Play, Homer Went and Blew Up Springfield

The Simpsons

D’oh! This morning, an official The Simpsons title has been launched by EA called Tapped Out. The back story is your typical Simpsons – Homer, instead of doing his job at the plant in Sector 7-G, is at his station fiddling with some app on his tablet. Naturally, he is too involved with his game that the plant erupts, causing Springfield to be completely blown off the map. And as we find out, the safest place to be during an atomic explosion, is ground zero. Your job is to then recreate Springfield and find your family. 

The game was written by the creators of the Simpsons, so it has the same humor that you would associate with the show that has been on the air since I was still in diapers. The game itself looks great, as it was designed using HD graphics, so everything looks very crisp. As a plus, the game is free!

You can never have enough Homer in your life.

    To shut off the notifications(Homer’s Voice) on the Android, go to
    settings then to apps find the tapped out app, open it and just under
    force stop there is a show notifications box uncheck it, and that should
    shut Homer up!

    This damn game woke me up twice last night yelling at me, that my buildings were done.

      I haven’t seen a way to turn off notifications yet. I uninstalled it due to the annoying alerts.

    It’s about dam time…

    My one complaint so far is it seems like they’re secretly trying really hard to get you to buy donuts in the game. I have all of my characters tied up in extended activities to get more XP, and I can rush it with donuts. I played the game for about an hour, and now I have to wait until later tonight to use the people again.

    • blackmagick20

      That’s kind of the point of the game…it’s time based, so you have to wait. I like that, because I can make them do 8-10-12 hour activities and then not bother with it until after I get off work. That also works well for when I’m going to bed. I prefer not having to micro manage the game. Just my opinion though. The doughnuts thing is kind of crappy, because there’s some things you would have to purchase them for in order to buy. I dislike that!

      • Brian Walker

        If I knew that going in, I would have gone right in to making Homer do a 24 hour movie marathon. I didn’t realize it was real time. Now that I am more familiar with that it is, I’m having more fun.

        • blackmagick20

          But…if you were to compare the money/XP from a 24 hour task versus doing a 1 hour task 24 times, you get a significant amount more of each from the lesser tasks you have to do more often. That’s the trade off

    In class and can’t watch vid- is this like Sims or something?

    • EvanTheGamer

      Well, sorta. It’s a point n’ click city-building simulation kinda game where you can level up, buy things(buildings, decorations, pavements, etc) with virtual money/donuts, do quests, etc. Sorta like SimCity Social on FB, but better due to the fact that this is a Simpsons game as well as being completely 100% free(I don’t see any In-app Purchases of any kind so far).

      • http://twitter.com/dvschnk dvschnk

        There’s in-app purchases to buy “doughnuts” which can get you special items/building or speed up tasks. Hopefully this freemium model doesn’t get in the way of things…so far it has been fun

        • EvanTheGamer

          Oh…okay, thanks for letting us know. Didn’t realize.

        • http://www.facebook.com/rene.barba.89 Rene Barba

          Mmmmm . . . doughnuts.

          LoL, Homer moment there.

        Tried this out on my work issued iPad last Spring and the freemium got WAY in the way. You get to the point where you can’t get any more donuts. This does not stop the game but makes everything you do take FOREVER and there will be things you cannot do unless you pay.

        So, Simpsons farmville?

        • EvanTheGamer

          Yes, in a way, but with the great The Simpsons flare.

  • EvanTheGamer

    Operator! Give me the number for 911!

  • Tony

    the lack of ” “s being used in the title made me want to search Google Play for something called “Tapped Out” related to the Simpsons!
