    The Superhero event just kicked in, I got till the quest where I had to send Krusty on a quest but he was still busy with the Monorail. They returned the music and and comic font & styling from last years event, and this time they use a combat mechanic similiar to the one of Tap Ball. It may seem a bit complicated for now, but it could turn out fun. The prices look good so far.
    Episodes rated best and worst from each season:
    1: Krusty Gets Busted/Homer's Night Out 2: The Way We Was/Bart's Dog Gets an F 3: Colonel Homer/Dog of Death 4: Marge vs. The Monorail/So It's Come to This: A Simpsons Clip Show 5: Cape Feare/Bart Gets An Elephant 6: Treehouse of Horror V/Another Simpsons Clip Show 7: Mother Simpson/Homerpalooza 8: You Only Move Twice/The Canine Mutiny 9: Lisa's Sax/The Two Mrs. Nahasapeemapetilons 10: Lisa Gets an A/Sunday Cruddy Sunday 11: Behind The Laughter/Beyond Blunderdome 12: Trilogy of Error/The Computer Wore Menace Shoes 13: I Am Furious Yellow/Homer the Moe 14: The Dad Who Knew Too Little/Large Marge 15: The Way We Weren't/Diatribe of a Mad Housewife 16: Thank God Its Doomsday/Mommie Beerest 17: Marge's Son Poisoning/Bonfire of the Manatees 18: Marge Gamer/Revenge is Best Served Three Times 19: Treehouse of Horror XVIII/That 90's Show 20: Gone Maggie Gone/Coming To Homerica 21: O Brother, Where Bart thou?/The Devil Wears Nada 22: Homer Scissorhands/The Fool Monty 23: Holidays of Future Passed/Moe Goes From Rags To Riches 24: Adventures In Baby-Getting/Whiskey Business 25: Brick Like Me/White Christmas Blues 26: Bart's New Friend/The Musk Who Fell to Earth 27: Halloween of Horror/Every Man's Dream 28: There Will Be Buds/Moho House 29: Gone Boy/Throw Grampa from the Dane

    Meh, I don't mind the splash screen.

    Although that's probably because I have been forced to stare at it for hours while waiting for my phone to download all the updates that this latest event has mysteriously caused to be uninstalled, so now I've just gotten used to it.

    Tapped Out is free to download. It's the premium items in the game that costs money.

    So that Splash screen is official. Guess they had an intern draw it. I can't stop looking at all the weird forms on Homer and Radioactive Man.

    Krusty looks alright, but Homer and Bart appear off. I think it is in part the pupil sizes, and the fact that Homer's mouth looks really low (or the Pieman mask just always looks goofy). Also doesn't help that they did a deviantart-style shading.

    Aaaaanyway, to hate the game or the event for the splash screen is stupid given it is seen for like a few seconds when you launch the game. The event itself reuses some of the better aspects of the last superhero event, I love the tweaks to the in-game menu and the comic book text and harsher shading on the trees, as well as the heroic music. The event has quite a lot to take in, but really it is essentially Tap Ball meets Superhero 1 event. Most everything looks easy to obtain, though those friend battle prizes look to be a slog. Do we really need to win 10 games for each prize? I'm not too sure I want to play 100 games in friend's towns... but I guess I'll have to for those sweet sweet prizes.
    UP AND ATOM!

    Yeah wait who hates this event just because of the image?

    However, this fighting mechanic is a style of gameplay used in the Family Guy app for all of their events since the beginning and has always been a pain in the ass to me. So I'm not terribly excited about having to do this again. At least it is more interactive.

    Is "billowing backpacks!" the only thing Fallout Boy ever says?

    Ugh, how disappointing.

    I mean, the line itself isn't bad, and Fallout Boy was a never a big character, but still...one line? That's going to get old real fast.

    Anyway, so far I'm enjoying this event. I'm a big comic book fan, so I'm getting a big kick out of the new comic book style panels and heroic music. The new battle system took me a while to get used to, but I like it so far. Getting one character and three skins basically all at once was nice, even if I had to buy a bunch of new land for all the new buildings we got. Interesting that it's Fallout Boy that is the star of the main quests so far and not Radioactive Man though. I'm still waiting for Bartman to show up, although I might pick up Fruit Bat Man along the way. I'm also happy to see Stretch Dude and Clobber Girl finally show up. I didn't except to see Bouncing Battle Baby show up as well though. Didn't she only appear in the spin-off comics? I didn't know the game could use characters from the comics.

    Hope the event can keep up being this fun.

    hmm there was some kind of glitch this morning that was letting me upgrade springfield heights buildings without actually consuming the resources. it only worked for stuff i was actually able to upgrade at the start, unfortunately, which was only modern mansions, but i managed to upgrade all 10 of my modern mansions from level 3 to level 5 . went from like 450 million realty points to 700-something

    Why can't we have AT LEAST a 2 week break in between events anymore?

    And I honestly thought the splash screen was a joke at first. It looks like one of those early 2000's fanart Simpsons drawings that eventually make their way onto badly screen-printed t-shirts in Chinatown 99¢ stores.

    Also, first post on this topic. I've been playing since '12, so add me if ya like.

    The return of this superhero crap is almost enough to make me quit this game once and for all. Seriously, does anyone like this stuff? Are most of these characters even real? Who is this solar guy and wind guy? Who are these villains? Can anyone tell me with a straight face that they enjoy having to go through these "fights", which are lamer and more boring than RPG fights from over 20 years ago?
    The completist in me wants to unlock all the prizes, but I can't condone such a shitty excuse for "fun" here. This is not fun. This is work.

    yeah, not a fan but i also have completist tendencies that force me to grind it out. i want to at least get the buildings just because they look sort of cool, but the characters i don't give a rip about
