The Simpsons: Tapped Out goes all Clash of Clans in new update

By , on August 20, 2014

The Simpsons: Tapped Out gets a lot of stick in the games press for being an overly simple, mindless game of tapping and wait timers, with no creative value whatsoever, and precious few original ideas to call its own.

The bods at EA Mobile have gone ahead and added a whole new element to the game, no doubt to prove the haters wrong: they've brought war to Springfield.

You can still do all the tapping you like, of course, but the new update allows you to raid other players, defend Springfield from attacks, and see how Homer and the gang would fare in fantasy warfare.

If you're wondering just how inspired by Clash of Clans the new update is, take a look at these two bits of promotional art, and make up your own mind.

Keen to try the new update? Go grab The Simpsons: Tapped Out on iOS or Android now.

Sometimes I wonder why EA would doing this sort of crap? Now they do clash of clans style gameplay? Crap is this a joke?
