    Awww! How refreshing!

    What a nice thing to post, I love this game too and think they are doing a great job. I've tried every "builder" game out there and nothing compares to this one.

    I used to be part of the "completist" group and had to have everything but now due to lack of space in my town, I've gotten off that train and only get things if it fits into the design of my town. Asia de Cuba does not so I didn't get it.

    You know how I thank the developers? By giving them my money for a glitch prone game.

    I think the biggest difference is that the other games of this style generally make it where if you don't spend cash consistently, you end up with a cluttered village full of partially completed items and unfinishable quests. That's annoying on its own, but eventually you find yourself pretty much unable to progress in the game on any real level.

    I suspect this game would have been successful based on license alone, and it could have had the same traps, but they didn't. Considering EA often gets a bad rap, I think that's worth celebrating!

    I'm scared and confused by your sarcasm/honesty. :?

    I guess I'm lucky in that I have not encountered any glitches or serious problems. I play on a Nexus 7, and it pretty much runs smoothly with an occasional slow-down.

    I must admit I've spent money on this game as well as some of my family members I've gotten to play :D
    At first I didn't think the game would be all that addicting until I started playing it more and actually put some time and effort in it so I'll admit I'm addicted to this game but in a good way not addicted in a bad way to where I'm losing my life or job or spouse over it as I've heard a few people talking about stuff like that happening to them but I feel that is completely crazy if you'll let a game mess up your whole life as for like I said before I don't have that problem it's called "having your life under control" and sorting out your priorities!!! Don't get me wrong I do love this game and I play daily :lol: So yes, Thank you E.A!!! :mrgreen:

    The game may have glitches occasionally, but EA always comes through in fixing them and then throwing some bones our way in the form of free donuts and such.

    The OP makes an important point. You don't HAVE to spend money on this game to enjoy it to a pretty large degree. I have spend some cash on it, but not until much much later into playing it. And if you don't want to spend a single donut, you can still have fun and participate in all the promotions. Not many games like it.

    So yeah, it isn't perfect - but I'm tired of the whiners, bitchers, and complainers. This game is pretty good and with frequent updates and fixes, it's getting better.

    I am utterly addicted to this game. I have spent a lot of money on it, and despite the glitches (Harp of Death! Having To Rush Rich Texan quest with donuts!), I can't stop playing. It continues to both surprise me and make me laugh, and I love that constant self-aware nods to tappers ("Time is arbitrary. It takes 6 seconds to clean nuclear waste, but 6 hours for me to lounge in the pool.")

    I am a HUGE fan. Thanks, EA!

    And, yes, I recently spend $19.99 on donuts, and plan to take advantage of the upcoming "Day Old Donut Sale" in order to get ready for the Springfield Squidport updated. So my gratitude is indeed tangible. :P

    I would say that the price of doughnuts is a bit extreme, but it seems to be working for you and so I thank those who do buy them for enabling me to have the fun I've had.

    You're welcome :-)

    Thanks to the developers of Tapped Out I've started buying the Simpsons DVDs and play episodes pertaining to the game.
    Sometimes for quick visual references for inspiration or something to listen to while I play.
    For the moment I watch episodes with Fat Tony and his goons because of the recent update. May go back to the Whacking Day episode to start on a Fort Sensible layout.

    Donut bug? That's probably ringworm. I'd contact a doctor.

    I used to play a couple other tappy games. Never spent a dollar on them.
    That all changed when I got this game...
    Used to feel guilty, now I don't. I could spend money at a bar and literally * all my money away, or I could have Otto jamming out in front of his school bus for as long as the game is active.
    Being a HUGE Simpsons nerd, this game does it for me. I was pretty high leveled in the other games I quit just to focus on this one.
    The glitches can be a curse, or a blessing. My girlfriend did a golden scratch-off once, it said she won 100 donuts and she wound up with 500+ donuts.
    The glitch that occurs frequently with me is that my friends list disappears.
    Another glitch that occurs frequently with me as well is that I get more donuts than what I asked for, which is always a good thing. I also bought a golden scratch off ticket, said I won the lowest prize or whatever... then the ticket re-appeared and gave me 100 donuts (3 axes) for free.

    I also appreciate that they reference a lot of the older episodes I know, love, and grew up with. When the newer tie-ins come around like Swanky Fish (meh), I ignore them. But when the classics come around, I scoop them up immediately.

    Just be careful. Once you buy donuts, you can't stop. I haven't bought a boatload or anything yet, but them scratch offs add up quickly!

    I agree with you 100% I myself also haven't spent much money on this game and I like yourself didn't spend any money until later on into the game but either way rather you spend money or you don't this is a game that you can actually play all the way through and still participate in everything and have all the privileges as a person that spends money. The only difference between someone spending money and someone not spending money is the person spending money can get premium items that are limited time (only can get by purchasing donuts) to where the person not spending money can't! But all together either way it's still a really fun game even though there is sometime glitches EA is working on that and they're making really good improvements so far if you ask me. :mrgreen:

    great game. My biggest complaints would be doughnut prices and how long it takes to start up. Other then that I've enjoyed it much.

    In the beginning i was like: only stupid people are spending money in this game but now i'm stupid...and i love it. I spend 6 hours on this game every day and i think it's more like an expressive way because you can be so creative with this and it costs u a little bit of money but i do it for the updates and because i'm stupid :).

    AND for the FUN guy's !!!!

    This board is refreshing to see. I am a huge Simpsons fan & own all the seasons available on blu-ray. Seasons 13, 14, 15 & 20 & the Simpsons Movie. Also have the Simpsons game on PS3.

    I too love this game & will continue to support the developer for many years to come. This is the only game I play on my iPad 3.

    Great job EA. Keep up the good work & I can't wait to see what's next.
