I’m back! I know there’s been a lot of speculation going round. Stuff like …
“Is the end near” … “might EA stop updating the game” and “Will the game ever end!” Well in this post I will be going over what I think about this topic.
So join me after the jump to hear my opinion …
So first I think I need to start by mentioning that EA is getting tons of money from the millions of people playing Tapped Out daily all around the world! I don’t think that EA are going to suddenly turn off the plug just like that as it would loose them tons of money, because that really is the only reason companies continue! So whether this means that EA might slow down on the updates or not is up to them but I don’t think that EA will ever stop the game completely.
Another option for EA is to only do seasonal/holiday updates and occasionally add in some items here and there! However EA still have quite a lot of items to add to the game that have featured in the Simpsons! So here is a list of my favourite characters/buildings and ideas that EA have yet to add to the game.
Please bear in mind that there was a huge list of stuff EA haven’t added so these are my favourites that I believe would add to the app (and not be too random):
Snake’s girlfriend (Gloria Jailbird) – she could have some fun tasks with Snake and even Mr Burns!
Jeremy Jailbird – Yes I know he is featured in an animated task with the new Outlaw Snake skin but we got Maggie and Marge had an animated task with her
Gil Gunderson – As a playable character, there could still be Gil Deals but instead of an NPC begging on its knees your character (Gil) could! An unlock image is also present in the files!
Maya – Moe’s girlfriend in the episode – “Eeny Teeny Maya Moe” She could have some tasks with Moe and maybe an inside task like Double Date with Homer and Marge
Crazy Dog Man – I know he only featured in 1 scene in an episode but he has potential for a fun character! He could have some fun tasks with Crazy Cat Lady (if you have her) and some good visual tasks (throw dogs, SHOUT, etc).
Groups (these are people shown in groups but could be separate characters for the game):
Family Guy and Futurama family (please!!!):
The many amounts of hippies we’ve seen throughout the episodes:
And lets not forget the amount of bands we have seen:
*Rolling Stones (and many more!)
These are character that died in episodes (RIP) so could be unlocked as ghosts or with their original body …
and Bleeding Gums Murphy (much requested)
EA could also add the numerous amounts of guest stars that played themselves/character (I won’t list them as it could go on) – guest stars playing themselves might be harder to add due to legal reasons but some guest stars played loveable characters that I would like to see:
Leon Kompowsky – Secretly voiced by Michael Jackson
Mr. Bergstrom – Secretly voiced by Dustin Hoffmam
Krusty’s Clown Collage (or Krusty’s Clown College depending on which scene you base it on)
Donny’s Discount Gas (maybe as a character/building combo unlocking Donny)
Story Town Village
Skatepark (unlocks animated task for Bart and bullies)
Ideas for EA to add
Neighboreeno resource swap system – where neighbours could trade resources (loads of money for donuts or donuts for SH resources/items)
Cancel Tasks – The chance for people to cancel tasks instead of having to store and unstore characters
Place cars on road – This would be a really cool feature!
Place boats on rivers – I don’t get why this still isn’t a feature!
Whole Town Stitchup screenshot – A button which automatically stitches up your town and makes a screenshot of it!
More hidden bonuses – like the jebediah statue and 10 free donuts hidden bonus
Place Cars/bikes on parking spaces
So in total I think that EA has hundreds of ideas to base new updates for and the list above is a tiny minority of characters,buildings and ideas that haven’t been used! Even when EA do run out of ideas (which in loads of years time realistically they will) there is no reason why the game can’t keep going with some Tapped Out Exclusives (they did it with Chester Dupree)!
So in the meantime, enjoy the game and don’t worry! There is plenty more to come!
Whilst I’m on the point of updates: EA where is level 60?! Might it come with the Wild West takedown!
Don’t worry when nothing much happens in the game! That annoying gap between events just means that EA is working on something (event, levels, Mini-Update or events)!
I hope you enjoyed the rundown of items that EA hasn’t added yet and my opinion on Tapped Out ending! Did I miss any of your favourite characters or buildings that have yet to be added? Tell us in the comments as we all love to hear from you! Happy Tapping …
