  • If you're a fan of the show, you'll love it

    by M.K.Hammer

    Gamers with no soft spot for the longest running show in history can still get into this game. Fun and humorous dialogue, and tons of unlockables keep you looking forward to the next goal. Clearly a ton of work has gone and continues to go into this game. Can never go wrong with an EA game IMO. My problem with this game is my problem with this entire game genre... NOT going to pay a hundred dollars for a boatload of donuts! I will say though, this is the first game in the genre that actually tempts me to consider it...

  • Update

    by Biohazards117

    I had just done an update not to long ago and it deleted my whole game! I was so far into it and I had done so much! Is there a way to get my original game back? If I can't get it then I have lost complete interest in playing the game, I mean I don't want to start over what I did and if this is going to happen all the time then I don't want to do an update where it completely deletes my game every single time, please fix!

  • Feeling a little ripped off...

    by Starprincess13

    I've been playing for quite awhile now, and have enjoyed the game. This latest update for Valentine's Day has me a little annoyed. You have only been given a short period of time to gain hearts an spin the wheel for prizes. I've spun that wheel 5 times now, and I've received the same 2 lame prizes. Is it because I'm not spending real money to buy hearts? Because if I were, I'd be down right angry...

  • Can't get into Krustyland

    by JessRené

    Can't add any friends! What's up with that?!

  • I really enjoyED this game buuuttt....

    by Lauraliu

    For over 2 months now I have been unable to get on. Been playing for around 2 years.I have contacted EA multiple times and have done all that they have said but still can't get on. They keep closing out my ticket. I STILL CAN'T GET ON! I reply and tell them what I can do: ie : log on. That's it. The game won't load. But yes, I can log on. And I get a response 'I can see you can log on and get in your Springfield, we are closing out your case'. No, I cannot get on to my Springfield. I keep getting the "cannot connect to server" msg and after trying and trying I can never get on. What more can I do? THEN i try to submit a question on the help forum.... and it will not let me enter a question. This is so frustrating. Guess I won't be playing this game anymore

  • Valentines update

    by Dominika E Privatt

    Ever since the update I can't check my Simpsons because every time I go on it, it crashes. And I'm getting frustrated! Honestly, you need to fix that bug because we have to spin that wheel and I'm already sucky when it comes to that and there are only a few days left on the update.

    So, I've been faithful to this game! But..... Since the new update I've been icky. First of all I had a very great amount of neighbors but since the update, the neighbors are a waste of space because if your neighbor is not committed to the game and you go to their village you can't get Vday cards or money. Is there a way to hide them....

  • Fun game, too many updates

    by Edgar Conn

    I play this game daily, but lately there have been updates 3 or 4 times a day. During these updates, I have to clear out every app on my phone and even then it still says I don't have room. I don't think we should have to delete other apps because of updates.

  • Keeps crashing

    by No named woman

    I can't play the game anymore because it keeps crashing. Please fix. It's been 3 days now. I have the game on another device but it won't let me continue where I left off because of the one that crashes for no reason won't let me sync. Fix it please. I don't want to start over again. I took time and money to get as far as I did.

  • Tapped Out of Cash

    by Hex Nightshade

    Seriously, what's the deal with overpricing the donuts? This is just a little iphone game, if I wanna spend more than 60 dollars I'll just buy a PS or XB game. 2400 donuts should be at least 2 dollars. Yea sure, items give bonus xp or cash, but do you see ps/xb add ons costing 100+ dollars? This is you robbing us of our hard earn money just for 1 virtual building costing 20 dollars or so (exaggerating a bit, but you get my point). Other than that and the ridiculous waiting periods (which starts at the beginning of the game.) this game could be fun.

  • I hate time walls!!!

    by Bman210

    I have recently deleted Tapped Out from my iPad and tablet because, I do not want to support ANY app that puts my progress behind a time wall!! I shouldn't have to spend $5, $10, $20 etc. to have one of my characters complete a task faster! No longer will I support EA or ANY other company that tricks people into wasting money on simply progressing through their game!!!!

  • What happened?!?!

    by Dancell

    This game crashes every time I open it since the valentines update. If I am able to get in and visit friends the game crashes. Please fix EA!!!!

  • Love it

  • Crash on loading screen

    by SFClever

    Before updating this app crashed when trying to collect bucks or traveling to Krustyland. Now after the Valentine's update, it just gets stuck on the loading screen with the spinning donut in the corner. I can't even open the app now! Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app to no avail. Developers please fix this!

    Other than the occasional crashing when going to Krustland, I find this game to be great fun!

  • Decent Pooping Game.

    by HaroldSax

    Great way to spend a good 5 - 10 minutes or so every here and there. The whole Origin thing being tied in is actually kind of cool which I didn't expect!

    by Sprad8451

    Ever since the update, I keep getting the cannot connect page when I go to the friends page.

  • Fun game but...

    by Hector D

    Can't connect and when it does...well, it takes forever to load. It's a fun game with the Simpsons characters, but it needs a better way to gain donuts. Also horrible for the iPad. After the new update, it doesn't connect. Please fix!

  • Easy

    by Hahaha

    The game has always been buggy in the last two years since I played, now when I log out and go to my other account it won't let me and shows the id for the one I'm logging into but the game of the other and it keeps resetting a day back too when I had completed so many tasked and had won many things I know it's a game but it's been like this for 2 days and it's not acceptable when they are making money from us!!!! And they won't reply back to your emails too!!! This is too far and not acceptable if they do this tomorrow I will tell all my friends to delete this game as well since they are having problems too

  • Fun game but I'm the only person I know that plays

    by Jason Yant

    Love the game because I'm a Simpsons nut but I don't know anyone else that plays so when I have to rely on others like during valentines day I can't get any where because none of my family or friends play the game & certain quest end up costing me donuts that I can't spare just to get them out of my notepad

  • Usually an awesome game, but horrible since last update!

    by hotPinklipstick

    This game is so addicting. The donuts are hard to come by, which is frustrating since you really need them, other than that, I love it. However, I can't even load the game since the recent update. The game stays in the "loading screen" for minutes before I finally give up and close out of the game. Please fix!

  • The only building game that I've stuck with.

    by Hdvtfhrhrbchh

    This game is my favorite town-type game. I've had t since the summer of 2012. After all this time, I've received a lot of bonus premium items; I want to see how much bonus I actually get.

  • Great game

    by prem omitsu

    Super entertaining

  • Expensive

    by Joanii_08

    The game itself is super fun and very addictive, however, in app currency is SO expensive. Everytime I think I might purchase donuts, I see the price and change my mind immediately. I wanna know if anyone out there actually pays for donuts in this game? Too expensive to get the game experience id like to have

  • Great time passer.

    by Crizam

    If u are bored and need to pass some time great game to do so. If u have a big city already rearrange all ur building and that will pretty much take a good while. Plus this game is pretty cool IMO.

  • Valentine's update not working.

    by ewitskiwi

    Other than that, i love this game. Been playing it for a year and a half now!

  • What the what?

    by Kaybe153

    I've been playing this game for months, updating it with every holiday update without any issue. Today though, with this Valentine's Day update it will not open. Hopefully with all of these negative reviews the creators will "fix the bugs" and award us all 5donuts, lol. Btw, it's a really cool game when your able to play. Update: the bugs have been fixed.


    by Butterbean1991

    This game is alright if your not waiting hours for it to update, log in or connect to the server.

  • I love the game but the Vday update is awful

    by kodora1316

    Seems like they may be using the same bugged code as last year, when their vday update gave us the Harp of Death. In app purchases not bad but performance is exactly what you expect from EA: unprepared. Overall, as long as it was anybody but EA, this would be a fantastic game. They made a bad choice with EA, winner of America's most hated company many years running.

  • I can't get anywhere with the valentine event

    by Home designer123456

    I've updated my phone software and uninstalled/reinstalled the game and it still crashes. I have max neighbors but I can't visit them to collect hearts. I keep getting the retry screen. I close all apps and just go to the Simpsons but it doesn't work. Out of over 70 neighbors I can get it to visit maybe 7. It doesn't benefit them or me. What's the point of running these specials if people can't participate? I wouldn't recommend this game to anyone the way it is now.

  • by Sooooo rad

    I mostly enjoy the game but there is one thing that bothers me: when I bought the "homer Buddha" it said that it would give me something rare but it just gave me a bench and trees. I got those for 15 FRICKIN donuts.

  • Can't visit neighbors

    by STG33

    Since the last update my system crashes every time I log on and anytime I try to visit neighbors. Totally frustrating because my Springfield gets visitors. Confused and disappointed- please help...
