In this days, the game is celebrating its 5th anniversary and the staff of TSTOTopix would like to celebrate with you all!
On Febraury 16th, 2012, the game was released on iOs for the first time ever, in France, followed closely by other countries in Europe, to be released then on March 1st in the US. 1 year later, on February, 2013, the game was also released on Android on the 6th and on Kindle on the 24th. The game has come a long way, with a total of one hundred and forty-four content updates, as of the Destination Springfield, Football 2017 and Valentine’s 2017 update.

The Characters and Costumes Of The Simpsons Tapped Out (Update: Homer vs the 18th Amendment and “Homer is Where the Art Isn’t” episode tie-in)

Hello fellow tappers, recently it was requested to post the complete collection of characters of the game so here we are.

I’ve included all characters collections and mentioned all costumes (that don’t appear in other characters collections). Enjoy. There’re a lot: 111 with 3 just added by the Homer vs the 18th Amendment and “Homer is Where the Art Isn’t” episode tie-in updates, and 2 unknown ones added by the Spring Cleaning and the Destination Springfield Takedown updates.
All costumes pictures has been added now as well as the item they’re associated with. Characters in red means the character or costume is not associated with it.
Characters in blue means the character is an NPC, with no jobs.
Thanks to SurlyCodger at AHQ for the list of items associated with the characters.
Notes: There’re a lot of images in the article. Beware of your internet limit.

Freemium/Premium: What Did You Get (Easter 2014)

Note: The term Freemium refers to those who play for free and only go premium by earning donuts without spending money. E.g. by levelling up/free donuts in events etc… I know it is a weird term but that is what it means. Sorry for any confusion.

Hello and welcome to our most fresh series of post. That’s right, another series! How exciting. At the request of one of our amazing readers, we are starting a “Freemium/Premium: What Did You Get” series, the purpose of this series is to see how our readers (and writers, if they vote) went in the event that just happened and what items they won. The latest event we have had is the Easter 2014 event, lets jump into it shall we?

These posts are going to work like this: I am going to create two polls for the post, one will be for our freemium readers, they will enter our poll and check off each item that they received during the event. The second poll is similar however it is for the premium players. With decorations excluded, please enter the poll that is relevant to you and let us know what buildings and characters you won in the Easter 2014 Event.

Poll 1: Freemium:

Note: Again, just a reminder, the term Freemium refers to those who play for free and only go premium by earning donuts without spending money. E.g. by levelling up/free donuts in events etc… I know it is a weird term but that is what it means. Sorry for any confusion.

Poll 2: Premium:


So take your vote, you have exactly one week. Remember to only vote in the poll that applies to you so we can acquire accurate results. I am posting this on a thursday afternoon which means that you have until next thursday afternoon before I post the results, so get in quick! If there is any problems with the polls, please let me know.



Premium Guide: Should I Buy Eggstra Eggs

Hello there, how are my favourite tappers this fine day? It has been a mad couple of weeks for me, full on mayhem for where I am and I have hardly have time for my favourite readers! I have had a birthday, I am directing a musical and on top of that finding time for a life! However I am back and I am happy to be reunited with you all. Now lets talk TSTO shall we?

Easter has been upon us for a quite a bit now and an important series of posts that we bring out for each update is the premium guides. There is always one premium guide that doesn’t come around as often as others though, the premium guide on currency. Hopefully this post is going to make you feel a whole lot better, as I’m going to tell you that you don’t have to use donuts, or of course you can just ignore my advice. Lets jump into it!

Note – This post was ready to go before the ability of purchasing gold eggs came in so it had to be updated, sorry for the delay.

TopiX History Files: Blocko Store

Hello and welcome to a guide on my new favourite building, the Blocko Store! I don’t know whether it’s the design of the building or the history it has or what but I absolutely adore this building. Speaking of the building’s history, when a building or a character comes along that isn’t premium (therefore not requiring a premium guide) we create a special post for it and entitle it the TopiX History Files. This edition of the TopiX History Files will be focusing on the Blocko Store!

The TopiX Pre-Opinion: Your Thoughts

Hello tappers, hope you are all enjoying the Easter update!

Oh, wait, some of you aren’t enjoying the update? But some of you are? Some of you feel in the middle about it??? Luckily you have all come to the right place.

We need your help on this matter. If you’re interested please read on!



You’re probably thinking that you’ve seen a similarly titled series of posts before, well you have, but here is the difference!

The TopiX Opinion started a while back and was the writers way to let you know their views on an event that has just passed. It was usual to post it at the end of the event  and the readers would sound off their views in the comments.

This is our way of, instead of reading our thoughts after the fact, letting you all sound off on the event. Why? So you and your opinion can be featured on our Opinion Post. We want to give people things to think about, stuff they might not have previously considered. That is why we are asking for your help!

How it will work:

There will be two ways for you to help us:

1. In the comments write your view on the event. Let us know what was good, what was bad, how you felt, if you got all the prizes, if the prizes were good, if it exceeded your explanations, bla bla bla. I think you get the point. Try to keep this option to about 50 words or less, if you go a little over we won’t mind but it becomes a bit tiresome to read 40 200 word essays (even though Mickus and I do it for a living).

2. Answer the poll below. This is just a way to get pure statistics as the options are a bit limited but every vote counts. This will help us show how many of you liked it or didn’t.

Here’s the poll: (As you can see, you can vote for more than one option)


Please help us as much as you can so that we can gather a full opinion post when the event is over. You have until about May 10th (a rough estimate) to get your opinions in as the event ends May 13th.


Eggs, Baskets and Friends – The Exchange Guide

Hey howdy-doodly-hi-dee (oh you get the point) tappers! How are all of my fellow rabbit slayers? This is my first proper post in quite a while as I have recently rejoined the workforce, hopefully this time for good, so I haven’t had much time to get anything. Thanks to the glorious creators of “the weekend”, I am now able to catch up with all of my special folk – you.

Today I want to talk about a hot topic with the inaugural Easter 2014 event for Tapped Out, the Egg Exchange process. Also since this “exchange” option has been added for the event your reward and actions for visiting friends has changed drastically and are now almost forced to exchange eggs. But I will get to that after I break down the entire process.

PinkBasket BlueBasketPinkBasket BlueBasket

Before we begin any discussion of exchanging eggs it is vital that you know what color egg “earner” you are. Thanks to my good friend and all-knowing Tapped Out wizard, mrfy, we have this post here to read up on and discover what color egg you are predisposed to collect more of.  Once you have found out the necessary information follow me to the land of the Egg Exchange……….

New Easter 2014 Add Me Page – Announcement Only!

Hey, how is every bunny doing? Just thought I’d let you all know that we have created a brand spanking, crisp, new Add Me page to coincide with the Easter 2014 Event. The new page is located under the Easter menu heading at the top of our site. I realize it should be in the Add Me menu but I want the Easter menu to be a one-stop shop for anything and everything regarding this event.

Take a moment to stop by the new page and add your Origin ID and perhaps what color egg-earner you are OR what color eggs you need the most so new neighboreeno’s know what to leave in your town. The New page can also be found here. Enjoy!
