The Simpsons: Tapped Out comes to Android

Popular iPhone game transitions to Google Play with HD graphics

EA Mobile’s freemium title, The Simpsons: Tapped Out, is available now on Google Play.

The game can now be played by Android users following several months on exclusivity on Apple’s App Store.

Despite initial issues that resulted in the game disappearing from the App Store for an extended period after its launch last year, The Simpsons: Tapped Out has grown in popularity to hit the number one spot in 20 countries around the world, including Australia

Based on the long running television cartoon of the same name, the app has achieved as many as 3.2 million daily active users following its launch.

The game’s availability was initially limited to the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, though the introduction of the Google Play versions means that over 1,600 different Android devices will now have access to it.

“Working collaboratively with The Simpsons team is an incredibly fun and creative experience,” EA All Play’s California and Bight Studios group general manager, Aaron Loeb, said.

“It’s particularly exciting for us to bring The Simpsons: Tapped Out to Google Play for the first time and introduce a new audience of Android consumers to one of EA’s most successful and engaging mobile games.”

The game borrows elements from EA’s own The Sims franchise, where the player is put in charge of rebuilding Springfield after Homer accidentally causes a meltdown at the nuclear power plant.

In addition to rebuilding the town, players have to carry out tasks that enable Homer to find his family and friends.

So far The Simpsons: Tapped Out has more than 30 fan-favourite Simpson’s characters, like Cletus, Millhouse and Ned Flanders, and over 45 buildings, such as the Kwik-E-Mart, Springfield Elementary School and Duff Brewery.

The game gets regularly updated with seasonal content, with the most recent one being the Valentine’s Day pack that added new chatacters, buildings, and quests.

Currently new to this game, and can't believe how much fun it is, when i barely get to play for ten minutes. You asign tasks that take a good amount of time for any decent amount of xp. Your not given many choices on what to build or spend your money on. The begining is extremely slow after the tutorial. Of course if you want to speed things up or get the good items you have to pay for donuts... Your granted some each lvl but hard to save any good amount. You cant add friends on the android version ... Which is all i have. Still i cant stop playing it.
For the version launched on Android google play *3/5*
After a major update may i give this 4 to a possible 5 stars and purchase donuts

So after searching for hours and hours on forums and random sites. I am now assuming that EA Origin is not going to add the Feature to log in to your Origin Account on Android. Now you can with Scrabble but not any other games :(. Wish they would hurry up and fix this. Don't see why they won't. Wonder if Apple is paying them off haha.

You can't add neighbors yet because you are unable to log in and/or create a username and such. Wish they would fix this so I can continue playing from my level rather that starting again

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
