EA Mobile has announced the latest content update for The Simpsons: Tapped Out on mobile devices. Focused on Sideshow Bob and the Terwilliger Clan, the update will sees players interacting with a new character: Cecil, Sideshow Bob’s brother.
In the event, Cecil has supposedly returned to Springfield to make amends for past crimes. In order to earn the town’s trust, he brings the Monsarno Research building to town, allowing users to genetically modify Springfield’s food for increased resource production.
This event has multiple stages, and will see players collecting resources in bulk by completing Cecil’s timed tasks and the event’s overall quests. As players send specific characters to complete jobs, they’ll earn currencies like spades and corn. Items like corn are used to craft new prizes, including a Cane Field, Springfield Farmers Market and Sani-John Smokehouse.
Meanwhile, collecting spades gives players a separate set of rewards, as they reach certain collection milestones. The first prize is a Monsarno Founder Statue, followed by items like the Old Simpson Farm, a Pet Mutant Plant and bulk resources. Additional prizes will be added to the event in 13 days.
Finally, players can spend some of their resources on upgrades for the Monsarno Research building. Doing so unlocks new jobs for specific characters, and opens up the possibility to earn even more resources over time. This entire event ends in 41 days.
