Anyone else disappointed with the ghost bombs?

    I thought it was my imagination, but I guess not. No goo increase for me either and I tried two bombs.

    Not disappointed, but then I wasn't expecting too much more than what we got. I mean sure there was a sliver of hope the bombs were going to let you generate ghosts in others' towns and ramp up goo collection, but it wasn't much. I was more surprised it was introduced so late in the event.

    My biggest complaint is that, after using so much goo to unlock the item, its more than likely not going to be present once the Halloween event ends.

    Don't need them at all... I visit my town regularly and even in the morning I don't see the point of using it. For me only the first community prize was nice, the cat...couldn't care less, it's small most time I don't even notice it, not that I would care to notice it either so basically :thumbdown:

    To those that have are having the glitch, did you look at it very closely? I just did a bomb now. I had 11908 before I tapped the bomb icon (all Goo collected prior to detonation). Then I tapped the screen. The bomb effect when off and my total was 11937. So it was within the time of turning it on (as if the game knew how many ghosts were there) and when the effect was over.

    I'm a little upset with these Ghost bombs, I would like them if we could use them in our friends towns but we can't. EA should of never made this a community prize because its horrible!

    I think your expectations are unfair.

    It would be a waste to use them in friends' towns since there's a max of five ghosts you can tap for each friends town per day. Why would you waste a ghost bomb (which cost donuts after the first five we were given) for five ghosts in a friend's town?

    It makes wiping out all ghosts in your town very easy, and should help amp up the ghost collection rate a bit.

    Sorry, have to disagree with you. I'm not disappointed because they're exactly what I expected them to be. I think you just made an unfair and not well thought out presumption about the bombs. The only one you can blame for that is yourself.

    It would be nice.if.bomb generate ghosts instead of killing em, for example additional 20 ghosts in your friends town when you drop it or in yours,
    They didn't bring anything for me, we could do without em

    I can agree with that.

    I haven't tried using one, but I still don't even see why we have them at this point. Finding and tapping ghosts is part of the fun, so nuking them all seems pointless.

    They're actually very useful for the many players suffering from event fatigue. Much like Whacking Day, tapping thousands of ghosts/snakes gets old after a few weeks.
    Furthermore, I'm at 26,000 GOO, so to have these bombs made available at this point of the event makes me shrug my shoulders even further.

    Can I cash them in for their value in doughnuts? :)

    26,000? That's an average of over 1,600 per day. Either you spend a lot of money on gremlins or a lot of time playing and visiting all your friends.

    Nope! I love them. I was so excited this morning when I got up and had some. :)

    It just makes life a little easier. If they didn't regenerate so quick I'd honestly buy more. Now, if they had something like it for collecting houses. Omg id totally buy.

    The only thing I don't like is that, I'm at almost 9000 goo, and they just got released. This update has been soo easy. We needed this in whacking day.
