The Simpsons: Tapped Out by Electronic Arts is finally available to download on Android, almost seven months after it returned to iOS for the second time. The freemium title allows gamers to build their own Springfield after Homer wiped out the town with a nuclear meltdown. But it’s currently only available in the United States.
Tapped Out first launched in March 2012, but it had to be pulled when it became too popular and crushed EA’s online servers. EA made a lot of improvements to ensure it didn’t happen again, and then relaunched the game on iOS back in August. Android users have been waiting since then to get their hands on it, and it’s finally available.
You’ll only find it if you’re in the U.S., however. Presumably this is to ensure the game launched smoothly, and that EA doesn’t suffer the same issues it had with the iOS release. With that in mind, Tapped Out should rollout to international Android users in the coming weeks.
Those who can get it now certainly should. It’s a great game, particularly if you’re into building titles; it’s like a cross between Sim City and FarmVille — but with all your favorite Simpsons characters. And a lot of effort has gone into it, with the show’s writers and actors providing a lot of the voices and material.
We must warn you, however, that it’s very addictive.
