The Simpsons: Tapped Out is a pretty standard social game, with two big differences: it’s incredibly polished, and it knows its audience inside-out. It’s a must-play for fans of the show, past and present. Its charm and style will embiggen your heart and soul.

It may not have the depth of Sim City or the dedicated following of FarmVille but Tapped Out is still a thoroughly entertaining and addictive experience; arguably the best videogame based on The Simpsons yet.

Aside from its lack of any real innovation, the only nagging problem with The Simpsons: Tapped Out is its insistence that you connect to EA’s Origin service, even if it’s only used for online features such as visiting your friends’ parallel Springfields for daily bonuses. It’s spotty at best, and there was a long stretch during the review process when we couldn’t connect at all. If you can suffer through that, though, you’ll find a Simpsons experience that knows its audience well, and one that thus manages to nudge its way into the list of the best games of this sort to date. It doesn’t go out of it ways to innovate, true, but if Homer Simpson taught us anything, it’s that you can dish out minimal effort and still be a star.

I Simpson: Springfield è un titolo ben realizzato, ricco di sfumature e dettagli ma soprattutto assolutamente imperdibile per un fan che si rispetti. Se poi la pazienza non manca, anche la gratuità mascherata da "freemium" può essere benissimo confermata e le "sirene" tentatrici delle microtransazioni allontanate, lasciando gli incarichi più lunghi al giorno dopo e concentrandosi solo su quelli rapidi. Un buon manageriale dunque, senza troppi eccessi ma destinato ad un pubblico ampio, che sfrutta senza grossi problemi una licenza molto importante.

Trading on its licence and some scraps of humour from the Simpsons table, The Simpsons: Tapped Out is a bog-standard city sim with little to recommend it once you get past the Groening gloss

The Simpsons has everything you need for an excellent free-to-play game, including universal appeal, a wealth of material, and excellent little sound bytes like "D'oh" and Krusty's iconic laugh. It's just a shame that Electronics Arts has to choke the life out of that wonder with their oppressive Origin service. When Bart plugs that server back in, I'm going to have a lot of fun, but I'm wondering exactly how long it'll be until that payoff.

An all die Leute, die Geld in Die Simpsons: Springfield investieren: Hier ist eine App, die auch euer Geld nimmt. Der Spielspaß ist fast genauso hoch, die Interaktivität nicht viel anders und ihr dürft euch danach sogar noch ein wenig gut fühlen. Oder ihr spielt Die Sims: Mittelalter. Das taugt wenigstens was, vielleicht weil ihr das Geld im voraus bezahlt.
