Call it an example of fighting with fire. Or you can say it’s a case of “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.” In the end, it doesn’t really matter which cliche you prefer, because they both apply to the latest update to The Simpsons: Tapped Out.
As the new “Preparing for War” trailer explains below, it’s time for The Simpsons: Tapped Out to take aim at “the game that keeps beating them in the App Store.” Here’s a hint: it rhymes with “Mash of Plans.”
In any case, the 4.10.2 update for Tapped Out is now live, and it does indeed give you something to do in the game besides tap. You may not have thought of Springfield as a location for epic battles in the past, but after this, you just might.
So attack, defend, and watch as your favorite Simpsons characters trade burgers and beers for swords and bows. It’s a loving parody of one of the most popular mobile game genres out there, because after all, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Make that three cliches from which to choose. You’re welcome.
