Editors' Review

The Simpsons: Tapped Out tasks you with rebuilding Springfield after it's been wiped out by a nuclear meltdown. As you construct more buildings, you'll find more of your favorite characters, and you'll also discover some unexpected effects of the disaster on the space-time continuum.

Pros

Dialog and story: This game incorporates plenty of classic Simpsons-style dialog that pokes fun at the show, the characters, the game, and just about anything else you can think of. The loose storyline and constant jokes will be a plus for any Simpsons fan.

Play with friends: Since the nuclear meltdown seems to have also altered the space-time continuum, you can move from one parallel Springfield to another. That means you can go visit your friends' cities to help them and earn bonuses for yourself. And you get a chance to see what they've done with the place.

Cons

Loading times: This game can take a while to load. And you're almost certainly going to find it downloading updates the first time you open it. It also tends to pause in the middle of dialog sometimes, and that may cause you to move on to the next speaker without letting the first person finish what they were saying.

Paying for speed: It takes time to build just about everything in your new Springfield, and that means waiting. Unless, that is, you're willing to pay to speed up the process with doughnuts. Shelling out a few doughnuts will have your buildings up in no time, but they're also tough to come by in the normal course of gameplay. Your only options, then, are to wait the several hours or more until your building is finished, or to purchase more doughnuts with real cash. Some characters are also Premium, which means they can only be unlocked through an in-app purchase.

Bottom Line

The Simpsons is a fun way to pass the time, but it can get frustrating if you don't want to spend real money to play the game. If you're a fan of the show, though, it's definitely worth checking out since it's free to download and play, as long as you don't mind waiting a bit.

"Great game for Simpsons Fans"

October 04, 2013  |  By chezjuan

2013-10-04 07:10:05  |  By chezjuan

 |  Version: The Simpsons: Tapped Out 4.4.2

Pros

Frequent updates with new tasks and activities
Great references to current and past Simpsons episodes
generally fun to play

Cons

Somewhat unstable on my iPad (first gen)
in-game earning of donuts (mmmm, premium currency) is slow compared to similar games

Summary

The building part of the game is nice, but most of the fun is the writing. The game brings in references to great Simpsons moments, updates with tie-ins to new episodes, and is generally a fun "tap" game. My main complaint is the speed of gaining premium currency (and the cost), but EA needs to make money, I guess.

Also, it's clear the CNET editors didn't spend more than a few minutes with the game, or they would have understood that after the tutorial you can change the placement of anything, and would have understood what the donuts are for. Their "review" is actually pretty shameful and seems to be written by someone who is lazier than Homer on a workday.
