    Who plays? Is it just Farmville with Springfield in its place? Anything redeeming about the shameless money grabbing?

    I played it briefly, but then it just became more trouble than it's worth.

    It can be money grubbing... but it is perfect for when you have to take a dump... or wait in a line etc... do sign up for a Origin account for a couple of free donuts and it "remembers" your town if you have to do a factory reset... or in my case getting a new phone.

    Like stevethrower said. Not a bad time waster. Some things can be annoying and the money grubbing can get old, but there are worse money grubbing games out there.

    Hmm didn't show up... and when I try to add you says failed to add even though it found your user ID... meh. I'll try later.

    Oh note I am playing it on an Android... dunno if that makes a difference.

    Edit: Never mind... I added you.

    I've been playing this one for almost a year and I had to "tap out". It became like another job and I had to come to terms with the fact that I'd never get the Popsicle stick skyscraper or the elevator to nowhere without opening mine own wallet.

    Yep... when I originally tried to create an Origin account it was when Sim City was being released... and their site was fucked up during that whole week or so.

    I was playing it for a while, but then would go a few days without even remembering to check it. Takes too long to really do anything.
    Plus, the file is fucking huge.

    It was running fine, but I keep a lot of Spotify stuff stored on my phone. So, with how little I was playing it, I'd rather have the ~300MB

    Yeah...mine doesn't, lol. I've only got 5 for internal storage (which Samsung views as an sdcard, so people are having trouble getting an apps2sd solution working)

    For now. If you "level" up in the mean time you can get up to 1,2, or 3 donuts. If you get the 1 you can spend $50K of your in game cash for a 50/50 shot at 3 donuts.

    This is currently my heroin... I've put money into it because I'm an asshole with too much free income.

    I like it because it knows it's an asshole and teases you for your addiction. Gotta respect that.

    Plus, creating my own Springfield is kind of cool. I'm looking forward to them opening up the seashore in a week or so.
