EA has severely underestimated the popularity of any game that involves characters and voices from the hugely popular animated TV series The Simpsons. After releasing its latest game called The Simpsons: Tapped Out, it has now embarrassingly had to remove it from the App Store as its servers are being slammed and user experience is being badly affected.
The game is still playable if you already managed to grab it; but it is no longer listed in the App Store. The game involves rebuilding Homer’s home town of Springfield after a nuclear explosion. Players rebuild the city and gain game currency which is measured in donuts by completing tasks along the way; players can also buy donuts through in-app purchase to advance more quickly through the game.
EA hasn’t said when the game will be back in the App Store but we will keep an eye out for it and let you know as soon as it does!
