The Simpsons are going to your phone! Again! Cnet
reports that EA is planning to release a free-to-play Simpsons game
called The Simpsons: Tapped Out
. The free iOS game focuses on rebuilding Springfield after Homer blows it up. Unlockable characters (voiced by the show's actors) will give you quests as you work on your version of the city.
Of course, your progress will be limited every day, unless you purchase virtual currency, in the denomination of "donuts." You'll also be able to find them in town.Tapped Out
is due on iOS in the next few weeks. An Android version will follow a few months later.
