Simpsons fans rejoice! Electronic Arts Mobile has released their latest game, The Simpsons: Tapped Out, for the iOS system & it’s loads of fun.
The game is based around a catastrophe that Homer caused (I know, what’s new). Do you know how Homer always drops that radioactive material in the opening credits of the show? Well, this time he has caused a total meltdown and sends the city into shambles.
It’s up to you to help rebuild the city any way you want, complete with all The Simpsons characters you know and love. Basically, you will perform a bunch of missions that will earn you money and experience points. With that, it will give you the ability to add new buildings to the city and make it like it once was. It’s almost like Sim City, but Simpsons style.
“The Simpsons is a beloved entertainment franchise that has continually broken new ground in the new media space, and we are proud to see that level of innovation continue with The Simpsons: Tapped Out,” said Peter Levinsohn, President of New Media and Digital Distribution for 20th Century Fox. “Thanks to the ground-breaking work of the creative team at Gracie Films and the top-notch game developers at EA, The Simpsons: Tapped Out brings all the unique comedy that fans have come to expect from The Simpsons to iPad, iPhone and iPod touch users everywhere.”
In the process of creating their own living, breathing Springfield, players interact with their favorite characters in hilarious new ways, including:
- Help Homer find Marge, Bart and the rest of his family and friends! (Ned Flanders, too.)
- Grow and harvest Tomacco on Cletus’s Farm.
- Party down with Duffman at Duff Brewery.
- See how your Indolence, Consumerism, and Gluttony stack up on the Conform-o-meter.
- Visit friends’ Springfields, play pranks and collect “cash.”
“The Simpsons is the ideal brand to bring laugh-out-loud entertainment to mobile devices,” said Nick Earl, Senior Vice President of Global Social and Mobile Studios, Electronic Arts. “We worked closely with Gracie Films to create a freemium game experience that The Simpsons fans will enjoy playing every day complete with irreverent humor and their favorite characters.”
One of my favorite characters has always been Ralph Wiggum, he is just dumb fun. Who is your favorite character?
