All Articles: The Simpsons: Tapped Out
Just don’t call it SpringfieldVille!
Electronic Arts plans to bring another city-building freemium game to the iOS this year with The Simpsons: Tapped Out. Like Zynga’s CityVille, the game encourages iOS users to erect their own virtual Springfield by purchasing buildings with in-game currency (in this case, donuts). As with CityVille, doughnuts can be purchased with real money to speed up the process of rebuilding Springfield.
That’s right, I said “rebuilding.” Homer has caused (another) meltdown at the Nuclear Power Plant, leveling the town. Thankfully, we don’t have a “Day of the Mutants” situation. In fact, no one has been hurt at all. Best of all, they even offer to help Homer fix things. The entire Simpsons family, Duffman, Hans Moleman, and many more of Springfield’s citizens will lend a hand to place a building or complete a quest.
To further capture that authentic Simpsons feel, EA has recruited the show’s writers and voice actors.
The Simpsons: Tapped Out will be released as a free download for the iPad and iPod Touch/iPhone “in the coming weeks.” An Android version is also in development and will be released a few months after that.
