Possible SPOILER and 2 questions

Due to the different aspect ratio of iOS vs Android devices the splash screens are different. But as the building is in the splash screen why don't you just say what it is? Because right now your post is a bit confusing. :)

    The top left of my screen (Android) shows Woolly Bully. We've already got this.
    Be a bit less mysterious (you've already, quite rightly, indicated in your thread title that spoilers may be involved) and tell us what you're talking about.

    They're talking of the purple weasal in the dump. Exstrapolate from that point.

    You might be on to something there Lee, or at least it's a great idea even if it isn't true :)
    Wall E. Weasel! It would be nice to get the character as well as the restaurant.

    We already got Homer's work away from work station (although I didn't get it) with the mini Thanksgiving event.

    Possible future clues could be the robot Clank Clank from Cockamamie's Collectibles. John and the store would be a really fun addition. Lots of other possibilities in the Dump like the Grade F Meat or Planet of the Apes musical (then they could have Hank Scorpio for sale! :D )

    Sorry I did say, "the more observant" will already know about (Wall-e-weasel).......
    ..and those who didn't could investigate for themselves (if they choose)
    Like a double layer of spoiler protection! but I didn't think it was that cryptic :roll:

    Just remembering now that there's a "Mr. Sparkle" box in there somewhere 8)

    No need for roll eyes - Wall-E-Weasel's is only on the Android splash screen, not on the iOS one. It's cut off due to the different aspect ratio. So your post might be confusing for player who only know the iOS splash screen.

    Is that from an IPhone? It's cut off on my GFs Ipad. Could be the Iphone is 16:9 and has the same screen as Android. Ipads are 4:3

    Edit: just checked that quick. Indeed, at last newer Iphone models have a 16:9 ratio while Ipads have 4:3. So they have different splash screens.
    And if somebody did't get it: I'm not about being right or winning on the internet, I just tried to be helpful.

    I play on my iPhone and my splash screen doesn't show it either, but I sort of inferred it from just having been staring at the Rail Yard Dump :)

    Something Mr. Sparkle related would be great. I would've loved the Mr. Sparkle Billboard, whenever that was, but didn't have the donuts at the time.

    It might not be a strict Android/iOS division, but it is certainly clear that you'd have to be more than merely "observant" to work out that the post was referring to Wall-E-Weasel if your splash screen looked like mine does on a Nexus 7:

    Apparently, I'm really oblivious. I'm not surprised by this revelation, however. :mrgreen: (also, also, not visible on my iPad 2, visible on my Samsung phone: either way, didn't notice. :P)

    If we are speculating on things from the Dump that could make it in to the game, I would like the statue that appears to be rolling it eyes. Mostly because it amuses me.
