    It's the standard directions: choose to attack enemy, change or recover fighter

    Sometimes it'll glitch and make me lose a fight if I click the fist too many times at once to skip the animations. Speaking of which I really hate comic book guy's lightsaber animation that takes twice as long as everybody else's

    I've recently gotten back into this game, it's pretty fun. Though the new event annoys me when there's so many criminal guys in a relatively small town. I'm on the Mr. Burns level
    as a side note I made a discord server for this game you're welcome to join if you want no hurry https://discord.gg/JXzhjDS

    Lol, I unlocked Bouncing Battle Baby, but thanks to a glitch, whenever I select her for battle, she walks into the alley as Homer in his normal outfit before suddenly turning back into Maggie for the actual fight.

    I usually just press the skip button. If I need to heal my fighters I just buy a Band-aid box.

    It's nice to see Bongo Comics characters appearing in Tapped Out, like Bouncing Battle Baby for Maggie (from Simpsons Comics #60) and Doctor Crab (who was only mentioned on the show but appeared in the comics).

    The end boss for the event is great, I won't spoil it but he does give out a lot of crab juice as a reward so it should be easy to get the final act 3 prize.
    UP AND ATOM!

    I completely gave up on this event. I'm not too big on any of the prizes or crafting, even Maggie's costume so I'm not terribly bothered. I hope the next time they wanna try superheroes it isn't as tedious feeling, though.

    I think all events are gonna feel tedious if they're six weeks long. Why can't just do them 2 weeks at a time?

    I like the content of the event, but the length is crazy. 20-30 days max is cool. I mean, at only halfway through my characters were strong enough and there was no challenge.

    Same here. And one of my daily tasks is to upgrade my fighters... which I clearly can't do as every single one is maxed out...

    Yeah, even though I've been really enjoying this event and the prizes and characters that have been available, it's been going on for a long time. I actually started feeling tired in the final chapter, at least until the final boss arrived. I hope they'll take a break from events for a little while, or at least make the next one shorter.

    Admittedly, the final boss for this event is great and looks pretty cool. It's kind of an odd choice, but I really like it. It's nice that they actually bothered to re-release all the previous premium characters from the event (except Milo) to fight the boss in case anyone didn't buy them before. The huge amount of crab juice the boss drops for it's questline also helps out too.

    A weird thing noticed is in the latest Gil deal (where he offers the Radioactive Man movie set and maybe the Sidekick Milhouse costume too), they actually had Gil show up in person in Springfield and gave him an animation where he gets on his knees and begs. I don't think they've ever had Gil actually show up and physically appear in the game until now.

    Gil has always done that with every deal for as long as I've been playing (Whacking Day event)

    I unlocked Bouncing Battle Baby and then gave up. Nothing to add that hasn't been said already. Bloated and drawn out.

    I've actually quite enjoyed this event to be honest. It's much better than the fucking western event which I despised.

    Well, I managed to actually get all the prizes and beat the end boss. Now I'll just wait or the event to end.

    ....So, uh, what's going to happen to the Soliant Red Factory? It's not making any can's anymore, and I can't put it into storage. Am I supposed to just leave it out there on my Springfield forever?

    Once the event officially ends, you can put it in storage

    Damn, I skimped on the social battles and I'm not going to get all the prizes for those. That'll be the first time in forever that I didn't get all the prizes for an event. Can they still be bought for donuts after the event is over?

    Well, that’s all of the act prizes. I also own all of the social battle prizes and the craftable items (many of which I made multiple copies).

    I just got The Dead Lobster for completing the final boss. Now I have every single one of the event prizes (not counting premium items).

    In retrospect, I should have bought another cow.

    Update to remove the superhero event just dropped. But EA has already started another mini-event, this time about the monorail. Man, I was hoping for a break for at least a little while, I barely have enough land to fit in all these buildings they giving from all these events because they keep adding more and more, and I don't have time to organize them.

    Also, the felons you could fight and play as in the superhero event are now available in the store, but their quite possibly the worst premium 'characters' they've introduced in the game yet. Their not even actually playable, they just stand around in the orphan's alley fighting against each other, so your basically just buying a difference skin for orphan's alley. Disappointing.

    Jeez my monorail has been purposefully deactivated because of how laggy it made my game during events. I guess I'll check it out now that superheroes is finally done.

    Forgot to post here when it happened, but I managed to save up enough doughnuts just by playing that I was able to buy Barney's Bowlarama. This was my first BIG doughnuts thing, so I am still pretty psyched.

    I am only 1 social battle point away from the last prize, so I'm gonna try to hold out updating and see if I can get it tomorrow.

    Finally updated to the regular Springfield. Good fucking Bye to that superhero event. I was one of the very few people who enjoyed it, although I was getting sick of it after a while

    Feels so good to go a day without playing this game, lol.

    Though I do love the additions they made since the event ended. A tunnel through the mountains for the monorail was something I really wanted!

    Interesting teases btw in the back to normal update. So we have another sports event (ugh), doppelgängers (very interesting) and an outlet mall. Still waiting on that Springfield International Airport...

    The doppelgängers could very well be the addition of all the weird lookalikes we had over the years. Like the Simpsons Movie defaced wanted poster family, Homer with a mustache, that rich kid that looked like Bart... Lester and Eliza (most likely).

    So, is the monorail a permanent addition, and not just another mini-event? I haven't noticed the countdown clock they have for events. It'd be pretty cool to have the monorail around all the time.

    And who's that hippie looking guy that comes with the Uriah's Heap Recycling Center? I don't recognize him.
