Halloween 2012/2013

Hello everyone and this post is about something that people have been asking for in the comment section recently quite a lot, Now since we are coming up to Halloween and with rumors and spoilers speculating more and more each day, I thought it would be right to post a few of last years stuff so that android players and other players who did not experience the Halloween update can know what could be coming and how much they might need.

I’m going to start off with listing the prices of last years Halloween event as that is the most asked question with people wanting to save up donuts for the event. Here is a list of how much items cost on the Halloween event:

Characters And Costumes:

  • The Raven – 30 Donuts.
  • Burns Monster – 300 Candy.
  • House of Evil with Talking Krusty Doll – 100 Candy.
  • Springfield Subatomic Supercollider and Black Hole – 100 Candy.
  • Mayan Calender and Mayan God – Free.
  • Cauldron and Witch Marge Costume – 90 Donuts.
  • Raygun and Kang – 100 Donuts.
  • Zombies – When Springfield Cemetery is built.
  • Pet Zombies – Springfield Pet Cemetery is built.
  • Mayan Homer Costume – Unlocked when The player answers the trivia question the Mayan God gives.
  • Devil Flanders Costume – Unlocked “The Black Hole Pt. 4” is completed.

That is the price of the characters and their costumes. Some characters arrived with buildings and the buildings will be listed separate below without the characters. The zombies and Pet Zombies were only limited time characters and disappeared after the event. Sometimes characters were seen changing into Zombies, This is because In the game, once zombies have come out of the cemeteries, they walk around your Springfield. When they meet a character, they turn that character into a zombie. Once tapping on the zombie character, they return back to normal…until another zombie comes along and turns the character into a zombie again. However, Halloween characters, such as Kang, do not get turned into zombies. Some of the children of tapped out were able to change into trick or treat costumes but this was not a costume for a character as it was just similar to the zombies. All images will be listed at the end of the post. Here is the buildings of the Halloween event:

Buildings and Facades:

  • Springfield Cemetery – Free
  • Springfield Pet Cemetery – 10 Candy
  • Springfield Subatomic Supercollider – 100 Candy
  • House of Evil – 100 Candy
  • Bad Dream House – 150 Candy
  • Mausoleum – 60 Donuts
  • Heck House – 300 Candy (Facade for First Church of Springfield)

As you are probably noticing now there are items that are purchased by using candy and this is the currency you had to pay for some Halloween items, Candy could have been earned from Killing Zombies, Egging and TP-ing Friends towns, and cleaning up mess friends left in your Springfield, Collecting from Halloween buildings and Sending characters on limited Halloween tasks. There may have been more ways of obtaining candy but I think they are the main ones. There were some items that were available for purchase by using game money and that was decorations and the Halloween decorations can be seen below:



  • Mayan Calender – Free
  • Jack-o-Lantern – $135
  • Dead Tree – $270
  • Spooky Tree – $325
  • Pumpkin Patch – $420
  • Cauldron – 90 Donuts
  • Ray Gun – 100 Donuts

And I think that’s about everything covered and I’m not sure about the Black hole being in the characters collection but If I have made any mistakes please let me know as it was a long time ago and I have forgotten most of it any way. Now I’m going to show a few images of the characters during the update as Zombies, Halloween Costumes, Ect. I have edited the pictures into one big picture, So click on the image to enlarge if you can’t see it very well in the post.


Above is just a small example of characters that were transformed into zombies. Here are ALL of the images on the Halloween event when the children of Springfield turned into their Trick-Or-Treat costumes.


And it looks like I have covered everything cost wise on last years Halloween event, If I have missed anything out or I have made a mistake please tell me in the comment section below. It looks like we could be expecting Level 35 on Thursday or another update If EA are releasing fortnightly updates. Halloween will be on its way soon and I can’t wait! Flinster42 will be back this weekend to post some stuff about what we could see during Halloween and part one can be found here. Thanks again – Nathan. Here is a trailer of last years Halloween update:

  1. I missed last years’, so really looking forward to playing Halloween. One question: Has anyone experienced crashing/freezing during play? Since the last upgrade to Halloween, mine is crashing on average every 2minutes. That’s playing on an iPad and an iPhone.


    • I’ve had it crash on my iPad a few times but not every 2 minutes. I’d normally say uninstall and reinstall the app, but it’s happening on 2 devices? hmm. What kind of iPhone and iPad do you have?


  2. Thanks for this post! I started playing for the Fourth of July event and I feel like I missed out all the fun stuff. I love Halloween decor way more than Christmas, so I am very excited!


  3. Wow, great post, left us all excited for what’s on store!

    I started playing last halloween and so I didn’t have all the characters at the time. Martin’s costume is hilarious!

    I really hooe there’ll be zombies again, and I think there will because the cemitery still says “incubating zombies” when you tap on it. I’m crossing my fingers, because it was really fun!


  4. I can’t wait for the Halloween event! I didn’t start playing until Feb of this year so I missed some of the major holiday events & I’m excited to be able to do them this time around


  5. I’m sooo excited!! My fav holiday! Excited about the Halloween vandalism and candy currency. Thanks for the info on last years Halloween, I missed it 😦


      • Fortnight is used just before the video. I don’t understand Cesto’s problem. Lately we have been getting updates every fortnight so we might see something at the end of the week. Maybe he means fortnightly should have been used instead of fortnight.


      • I really don’t think his complaint was because he didn’t say fortnightly.

        I think it’s because in North America it’s really not a common word at all–reading it here was the first time I can remember hearing/seeing it since I was in school.

        That being said, there’s no reason to stop saying it just because someone doesn’t like it! I actually enjoy it, I didn’t realize it was still a common word in other parts of the world!


        • Well I cant understand the problem. Its only written once. What do they say in Northern America? I think in the majority of English speaking countries “fortnight” is used as it means 2 weeks, Rather than “once every two weeks” as its shorter. There’s no need to complain about an English word being used when its in its correct context. Thats just a difference in different English speaking countries. I spell and use the language from Australia. There’s no need for people to complain because i spell “donut” “doughnut” Because thats how I learnt. Have you heard the saying, “You say tomato, I say tomato””You say potato, I say potarto”

          Thank you for for letting us know. The first paragraph is directed at the top person of this comment.

          This blog isn’t just about helping each other, its about share ideas, culture and bringing people around the world together. I can understand bad grammar or spelling mistakes, but complaining over a word that is used(and in correct manner) is ridiculous.


      • I completely agree, Mikus!

        We usually just say biweekly. Not really sure why “fortnight” faded out of use here, but most of the time people think it sounds colonial or something!

        But you’re right, it’s a common word being used in its correct context–just because it isn’t common here doesn’t mean you should stop using it! I’m sure the original commenter just didn’t realize it was such a common word, because like I said, I didn’t!


      • Wow I learnt something new today. I didn’t realise (and that is with a s not a z lol) that America didn’t use it. That seems so weird as it is so common here.


      • @Mike we were just commenting on the fact that someone was complaining that Nathan used the word fortnight. Its so common of a word for us non Americans that it is a weird complaint. Personally I find it a much better word than biweekly (which can be confusing whether it means twice a week or every two weeks).


        • Ha ha, yeah I tend to forget that Nathan is not American and I want to go in his posts and start correcting so bad until I realize. The last time I heard fortnight was in some old poetry I believe. Definitely not something we hear this side of the pond at all. Bi-weekly is exactly as it sounds 2-weeks. Twice a week is called twice a week, it’s a tricky one that is, : )


        • Thats how we use the word biweekly and ive never heard it used for fortnightly before. Im all good for correcting a mistake like “fortnight” to ” fortnightly ” but as far as im concerned if its in the dictionary and used correctly i won’t change it. Thanks for your support Esteban.


          • Absolutely. It’s always used correctly and I would never change it due to that. I meant because of how strange it looks for me. It’s funny to see.


    • Hmmm, Cesto…you just had to comment to say *that*? Lol, I like the word fortnight, but yeah, it is rarely used in America. Considered quite Colonial in our part of the world. 😉 Play & be happy!! People sometimes complain just to say something, we certainly live in a time when people feel the need to be heard. Just sayin’.
      Thanks for the awesome blog and 9/11 in my thoughts, always.


    • I am saddened at Cesto’s complaint of Nathan using the word “fortnight(ly)” too often. Nathan spends hours writing up information to help us learn about our beloved game and all Cesto can do is complain about a specific word used to much. Where is the thank you? Cesto, we are not all perfect people. We are just gamers sharing the love of a game. Forgive grammar errors and certain over usages of specific words. I am sure you have plenty to complain about in my post, but please keep them to yourself and just try to hear my meaning not my improper delivery. I want to thank everyone who spends their time writing these informative articles telling us more about our favorite games. Thank you!!!!


  6. Can’t wait as well. I started playing at the end of November of last year, so I missed out on it. Not that I even knew as I was so new at the game I had no idea. lol. Though from what I understand, it ended sometime during that month.

    I may actually spend real money and get donuts to buy all the Halloween stuff, that’s how amped I am. 🙂


    • I think it ended 8th November and I think EA are going to top last years Halloween with a bigger and much scarier update 🙂 Loving the youtube videos by the way 🙂


      • Glad you like my videos. I will obviously be doing Halloween videos as well. Hopefully most of the main items from last year will still be in.

        Been a fan of the past and now current site for ages. I love the game and the site of course is well run by you and everyone involved, so please keep up the good work. Side note though, if you do ever want to use any of my stuff, go for it. (not that I have much of anything lol) Just do all the usual giving people credit stuff and go nuts. It’s all good. 🙂


  7. I missed last year event, I can’t wait… Do you think the theme will be the killer dolphins now that we have a beach front ?
