update blah

Prev1
You're probably expecting a little too much for an App game. It's a nice, simple holiday update. We'll most likely get a bigger event/ expansion next month, with a level update between now and then.

    I'm liking it so far. Storyline's simple but there's some clever dialog. After the last few months, I could use something a little relaxed. :D

    I am liking that they tied it in with the season finale indirectly, and that they are giving those of us who weren't around last year to get the items we weren't able to get. It's not glamorous but it's not bad either 8)

    We've been to spoilt, people forget that this is the original way the game is played. Always something isn't? Just a reminder, it's not a pc/console game where you play it as long as you want, you play this game when you have a spare 20 mins or so. It's just to fill in time.

    I'm fine with small updates like this one, especially after an event like the Stonecutters.

    July 4th has always been a small update. The next big update should be Halloween. A lot of people can't devote the time to play back to back big updates.

    Absolutely. My husband would probably divorce me if this game was constant big events. Whacking Day and Halloween were touch and go... :lol:

    As said above, it's only an app game for a mobile device, what do you some people expect? It's not the Elder Scrolls

    I think you have to remember that this wasn't supposed to be a big event like Easter / Stonecutters / Halloween etc, it's just something for the weekend really, a new building/character, a couple of quests and a few new things to buy!

    It's not great, but it's only a mini-update, comparing it to the event whose name shall not me mentioned is crazy! :P

    Last year we got Squidport followed by a barrage of complaints about tiles 8)

    Perhaps this year will be the Monorail as an expansion followed by the complaints about......

    You can call it a holiday tie in!! Like the episode tie ins! It pretty much is the same as last year. The real events have a new splashscreen and app store updates so be patient it may come.

    IMHO this year's 4th July update is awesome. It's much more than I expected.

    That would be nice. I'm really hoping we get the Chili Cook off next month.

    Right now the next major event we know of is THOH so It would be nice to get another event before then if there is no expansion

    THOH? Tree House of Horror? Do you mean Halloween or is this something else? And is it confirmed or speculation?

    Why do people continue to play an app game that they dislike so much? I hated this game when I first played it, instead of moaning about it, I UNINSTALLED IT. Came back when I saw the stonecutters were part of it, and have been enjoying it. Once I get sick of it, I'm not going to whine and complain on here, I WILL UNINSTALL IT AGAIN.

    I could name 30 games that I used to enjoy, that after awhile, I got sick of, so I uninstalled it, and those 30 games are all within the past year. I can name numerous TV shows I got sick of, so I quit watching. I don't continue to do something that I do not like.

    I wonder how many of the whiners and complainers still force themselves to eat Lima beans, even though they hate them, because if they still play this game as much as they hate it, they surely must eat Lima beans since they hate them as well

    Yes Treehouse of Horror is the Halloween one
    The only major updates we get that we know of is Halloween and Christmas
