Collect Your Favorite Characters

Help reunite Homer with his loved ones - Marge, Lisa, Maggie (and even sometimes Bart) – as well as his not so loved ones, like Ned Flanders.

    The Simpsons is good in both game and show form

    I have been watching The Simpsons for about 1-2 years now. At first, I didn’t like the show very much, bur I gradually grew to like it. I found out about this game from casually browsing the Simpsons Wiki. Since I like town-building sim games, I decided to get it to help pass time during the coronavirus outbreak of this year. Contrary to what some of the reviews say, it works really well and I have no trouble making in-app purchases given appropriate credit (most of the bad reviews seem to be from haters or people with older devices). I have an idea for a new feature. It is to make it so that one can spend in-game money (the not doughnut one, whatever that is called) to improve the chances of getting a particular item in the Yearbook Mystery Box slightly each time you do this. That way, the chance of wasting 30 doughnuts on an insignificant item is lessened. I sincerely hope this game lasts as long as The Simpsons TV Show (kind of exaggerating there, but you get the point). Thanks for reading my review if you chose to. It would be really nice, especially if the developers read this review

    FUN!, FUN!, FUN! from 3DAYS

    I have a serious problem. All my land is full. I have to rearrange every new buildings in a new arrangement. I need new land. Please. Please. Please. I have been playing this game from the first day it was issued on ITunes. It then crashed and the returned. I loved it. I was 65 at the time and had to attend Kidney dialysis 3 time a week at 4 hours each day. The game gave me I something to do and kept me excited. I have played almost everyday. Only a few times did I become a little disinterested such as the last Easter theme, but but most of the time I have loved all the themes and levels. This comic book theme is fabulous. The battle and castle game was equally super fun. I love the creativity and imagination of the writers and animators. Keep it up. I know that there are a numbers of themes, personalities, and fun stuff that can keep this game going. One complaint: MORE LAND!! Other than that, keep this old 68 guy happy by keeping this game going on. By the way, this is my first electronic game (and only one) that I have ever played. Thanks for the fun, no matter what others have said.

    Used to be awesome

    I played this game religiously for three or so years, and then one day I tried to log in and couldn’t. Somebody hacked me. I was never able to recover that Springfield. It made me angry because I spent a LOT of time playing Tapped Out. My Springfield was huge and I spent almost no real world money on it, just lots and lots of patience. I let two years pass, and I decided to try the game again. Well, I noticed that the price for land expansions has either skyrocketed or I never paid attention to how much it cost back then. It’s ridiculous. There is no way to expand in time to make room for all the buildings and characters. The reason I give it one star is because while I was enjoying playing it again, and I got to level 20, I got tired of seeing the Mothers Day quest still on my task list. So I deleted and re-downloaded the game and tried to log in and it says it can’t log in. Did the typical reinstall, I waited a while before trying to log back in, and it still says it cannot log in. Obviously nothing has gotten better as far as connectivity and log in issues go. Got my hopes up thinking this time it’ll be better, but it’s not. Sad, because I really really really liked playing this game. The other games like it aren’t near as fun. Too bad, I wish EA would get their act together. As it is, I refuse to sink more of my time into the game when I can’t be 100% certain I won’t get hacked or locked out of my own account. Peace out. Deleted.

    Great Game

    I have been playing this game for several years and it is one of the best ones out there. In fact, I have had this game longer than any other game. For a long time I did not spend any real money and was able to play the game and finish any of the events they had. I only log into the game 3-4 times a day and have never had problems completing an event. I spend money now, because I want to show my appreciation for not making this a “pay to play game.” Also, when I do spend money, it is never on the current event. There are some glitches and bugs every now and then, but they are always quickly resolved. I also do not know a single software company out there that doesn’t have bugs or glitches when they upgrade or update their programs or software. Sometimes you just can’t anticipate everything, but the important part is that you know how to fix it. If you are new to the game, just be patient, have fun and you will get there.

    My favorite game but last update created a glitch

    Every time I go in to complete the last task and I clear all the thumbs up out and Try to assign other tasks to my characters the game won’t let me. Open the left-hand corner where the picture is of the character with the checkmark next to the picture when I try to tap on that and assign a character task the game won’t let me instead it goes to the area where the character is supposed to be in the game but the character isn’t there so I can’t tap on the character to assign another task it is very frustrating and every time I go out of the game and then go back into the game all the thumbs up that I had just cleared from the previous task are there all over again it’s like Groundhog Day. Can somebody fix this glitch please I only have till July 25 to finish getting my decorations and I’m never going to get them because I can’t get through to the other tasks because the game won’t let me.

    Best Simpsons Game Ever (except for Hit and Run)

    I have played for a while now (a few months) and this game is still fun. I like opening the mystery boxes and see what I will get, I like seeing things from some of my favorite episodes that only showed once or twice. I know that many people are upset that at E3 there wasn’t a Hit and Run 2 or something like that, which I didn’t expect due to it being made a long time ago and having a Grand Theft Auto feel to it. Some people with missing screws thought that they would make a road rage sequel, which would never happen because it got lawsuits from Crazy Taxi. I think this update, or another game would be the best thing they could do. And it delivered. The Simpsons may not be in its “golden age” any longer, but I still tune in on Fox to watch my favorite cartoons (even if they dropped in quality). I still enjoy the Simpsons and that isn’t going to stop anytime soon, just like Bart’s antics.

    Good game but for years ive had this one problem pop up every now and then

    Seemingly randomly the game will basically uninstall itself and log me out of the game, forcing me to reinstall and log in again. Sometimes its multiple times a day, other times ill go weeks without it happening. Ive checked online and everyone says its caused by not having enough storage space, so the game only installs the files temporarily. But im at 53.4 GB of 64 GB on my phone, so that cant really be the problem. Other than that problem i absolutely love the game. They keep adding more to it over the years and theres constantly new events ranging from holidays like halloween and christmas, to one-off events based on special episodes. Originally the game had little to do, you would assign people to do actions, ranging from 6 seconds to 24 hours, and place the few buildings you could. It was a run of the mill mobile town game like Family Guy Quest for Stuff or that Futurama one. But as its gone on theyve expanded the amount of buildings and decorations, added new districts like the krustyland amusement park and the springfield heights rich peoples district. Now they even have materials that drop from some actions that you can then use to craft special buildings and decorations, and then upgrade those buildings too. This game is truly worth your time, whether you just stop by for a few minutes a day or for hours a day there is always something to do

    Longtime player with minor issue

    My nephew told me about this game when went away to college and since he graduated in 2013 I’ve obviously been playing a very long time. I absolutely love playing this game, being able to build the town and all the new characters. I especially look forward to the Halloween update every year. My only complaint from giving it 5 stars is being at level 203 I am no longer able to purchase land with coins anymore I can only use free land tokens. Apparently my town is too big now that I’ve bought all the land possible with coins. It wouldn’t bother me if I had to buy land tokens for like 5 donuts but that is not an option either. I have to wait until you give them as quest rewards. Now I have to decide what items I want to put in storage just so I can put up the new buildings that come with the new updates. I have like 56,000,000 coins now and nothing to do with them. Would you please make it so us longtime dedicated players could enjoy the game again and let us purchase land again with coins? Thank you so much for all the fun you’ve given me for the last 8 years and look forward to what’s ahead!

    Downloads update every time I enter the game

    I used to love this game so much, I even had it for over a year and deleted it, sometime later I downloaded it again but I didn’t remember why I deleted it in the first place, but after downloading it again it hit me, every time I open the game it starts to download “a new update” and it takes forever to open the game, it also asks me my age every time I open it, I really wanted to play this game again but it’s just impossible with all the waiting, I get for a game to load before you start playing, but to download a “new update” even tho it’s the same once it downloads seems off for me, specially since the download takes about a whole 20 minutes, I really hope you guys can fix this since this was the only town-building-game I actually loved, the other sad part is that I was soooo ahead the previous time I had the game and now I have to start all over again even thought I made sure I register my account so that in the future I could get back to it but apparently it’s lost Again, I would love for the game to be fixed so I can download it again!! Thank you

    Love it

    I reviewed this a long time ago. I’ve decided to change my review a bit from 5 down to 3 stars. The game started going something new that’s driving me nuts. I now have to sign in almost every time I play. The game now has to do the same 2,600MB +/- update almost every time I log in. And it takes forever to download that much info. I’ve tried everything to fix this problem. Deleted the game, cleared all history, rebooted my iPad, and reinstalled the game again. I’ve done this a couple times and it still has the same glitch. I HATE to delete the game permanently after so many years of playing it, but I can’t wait 20+ minutes every time I log on. I’ve never actually time it, but at least 20 minutes. I’ll update this once I see what happens. I've been playing this game for several years now. Really enjoy it. Being able to make Springfield any way you want let's you be creative in so many ways. The events are fun, but I do have a tendency to OCD about getting all the rewards and special event items. So be warned, when people use the word "addictive", they ain't kiddin'. 😉 Lots of fun.

    Great game, sad RL influences

    Speaking on strictly gameplay, this game is great, and has a tendency to really draw you in when editing your town. It has a ton of features, items, buildings, characters, etc. There is almost always an event going on (which can be good or bad). Constantly new stuff being implemented. Gameplay and features are 5/5 stars. Beyond that, I sincerely despise seeing all this stuff added into the game that has no place in the game. A bunch of political crap in a game I play to try and escape reality? Not a fan of this at all. I’m not saying we shouldn’t make fun of everyone, because this being Simpsons and a game, we should. It just gets old, fast. I see enough idiocy in the news from day to day, and I really hate reliving it in my game. For the past year, I’ve not read a single chat bubble in any of the quests in-game. There is no point anymore, as the humor is massively overshadowed by petty cultural references. Until this stops, and in turn you stop trying to play or downplay one side or another, you get 3 stars. I do not care what you believe, this is a game, not a social media post.

    Completely Lost Hope

    The Simpsons Tapped Out was once my favorite game on my phone for many different reasons, mostly because I could rearrange Springfield however I wanted. But, almost a year ago now, a few bugs appeared, starting with an in-game update. The screen said that it needed a 950mb update to continue, so I clicked ok and it took about 30 minutes but the game was normal for the most part afterwards. The next day though, I came back to check on my city, and the game wanted me to update the same thing again. I was a little confused, but I still went ahead with the 30 minute update. As you might tell, I was pretty dedicated to this game at this particular moment. The next day, the same thing happened, so I contacted EA. They gave me the basic troubleshooting steps like restart your phone, see what amount of storage you have, etc. I did all that and yet- nothing. So, I took a break from the game for a while, thinking that in three months EA would’ve fixed the glitch. Today I got on again, and it had to update again, another almost gigabyte of storage wasted. I think that today was Tapped Outs final test to see if it would be fixed, but I think my Tapped Out days are over. I had a lot of fun with this game in the past, but now playing it is a waste of time.

    About time to end

    It's was always been a bit buggy. But with the latest update the iPhone6plus gets hot to hold and quits after about 5-15mins of play or switching 1-3 neighbor towns. This along with the lack of sales on premium currency, I've started phasing the game out. It's not worth the cost. On this game it should only cost 50% the max cost and and last you a year. When they had the sales it would save a good amount and would last most of the year. And as time went on the sales got better, though this trend would continue. But the sales of premium currency stopped and now would only last you half the year. When you look at the amount spent, I could get a AAA title collectors edition with a season pass. I loved the game but the bugs with increase of cost is making me rethink, if it's worth still playing. Update: may 23, 2018 So they increased the ways and amount of premium currency you can earn in the game. But the bugs and crash of the game have gotten more frequent. And a new bug, I was trying to speed through a event using premium currency. The game crashed and on reload the event was over. And far as gameplay, their is no news/alert on game events starting. So pretty much always came in late and could never finish the first act. Probably the only good thing is I haven't spent any real money on the game in a while.
