User Rating:

The Simpsons has been one of the rare TV shows that actually has had a good gaming career, starting with the original arcade game in 1991, and having a its last console game in late 2007. Now, EA (whom has made many games for The Simpsons) has released Tapped Out, a game that is slowly but surely sweeping mobile gamers off of their feet.

The Good

Tapped Out is an incredibly fun and addicting game to play, in the style of other city builders, but the game takes itself less seriously. The story fits perfectly in The Simpsons’ world, and provides for some comedic moments. Your mission is to find all of the missing characters from The Simpsons, and all of your favorites make an appearance. You can add friends via Origin, and earn in-game currency from their cities. The game sounds great, looks great, and plays great.

The Bad

The game is a little too easy, and that is just about the only negative thing that I can say about it.  I’d like to see more content added in the future, with more buildings and quests.

The Ugly Truth

The Simpsons: Tapped Out is the most fun you’ll have playing mobile games, even if you don’t follow the series. I found myself playing it for over an hour before I looked up from my phone and realized it. The social aspect of the game is welcomed and executed well. Best of all is that the game is free.

Quick Take


Would I Buy Again:N/A

Learning Curve:N/A

Who Is It For:Fans of The Simpsons that love previous Simpsons games.

What I Like:Funny story, great gameplay.

What I Don't Like:Too easy, not much of a challenge.

Final Statement:The Simpsons: Tapped Out is an incredible feat from EA, and I recommend downloading this game, especially if you watch the Simpsons.
