Although I wasn’t really expecting an update so soon after the release of Springfield Heights (which I promise I am going to cover as soon as I figure out where to start), I was more than pleasantly surprised to see Level 56 drop and even MORE so when I saw what the new level brought with it. I can’t speak for any of you but I was born in the late 70’s making me a full-fledged 80’s baby and one of the most iconic real-life stars of that time, for me, wasn’t who you typically think of when, or if, you ever think back to that time. No I’m not talking about Max Headroom, E.T., the entire cast of The Ghostbusters and so on and so forth. Im talking about a legendary, fearless, one-of-a-kind stuntman named Robert Craig “Evel” Knievel.
Evel Knieval was a household name back then and not because of that badass hairdo or outfit, but because this man broke pretty much every bone in his body multiple times while attempting stunts with dirtbikes and motorcycles so insane he actually failed most of the time and people still loved him. I fondly remember having an official Evel Knieval playset at home and would easily recreate his many devastating crashes as they were a hell of a lot easier to do than to actually pretend successful jumps.
I’m sure many of you at this point are wondering what in the world any of this has to do with Tapped Out so I’ll quit reminiscing and make the connection. Cue, Level 56 and Captain Lance Murdoch! All will be revealed after the jump along with the entire Level 56 Overview!
