App of the Week: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

This week, EA officially released the very popular simulation freemium game, The Simpsons: Tapped Out on the Google Play Store after almost a year after it's iOS counterpart was released. As says the description of the game on the Google Play Store, "This Game is Life-Ruining Fun", they literally mean that (sort-of). Once you start playing this game, you can never stop. In this review I will talk about the following categories:


  • Presentation
  • Gameplay
  • Replay Value
Presentation:

Tapped Out is a beautiful looking game, even though it may not be graphically intense like other games such as GTA: Vice City or Dead Trigger, it still does look great. This game is fluid , smooth animations and no stuttering make the game all the better. I tend to enjoy a game better if it looks as good as it plays, Tapped Out is no slouch. Each character has their own individual actions and motions for each of the different things they can do, such as making Homer play with his MyPad or make Mr.Burns Walk the Hounds.

Gameplay:

This game's gameplay is superb, it is enjoyable yet also "sometimes" tedious.  It is a simple game to play, and it is highly addictive and hard to get away from. However, there are those times where you have to wait for a character to finish their task and that could take up to literally 24 hours of real time. Fortunately this game is a freemium game which means you can make in-app purchases where for $4.99 you can get about 60 donuts. Donuts in the game is what you can use to help speed up your characters to do their tasks faster. Another thing worth mentioning is that this game REQUIRES a Internet Connection, even though the Android version does not have EA Origin support and you cannot visit your friends yet.

Replay Value

This game has huge replay value, meaning you will keep playing and playing until "your fingers  hurt". This game is highly addictive and highly replayable.

Wrap-Up:

In conclusion, this is a great game and deserves your "great" attention  because you will be playing this forever and ever and ever.And wouldn't
