They had to remove it because it's full of bugs. My online game got completely FUBAR'ed, along with plenty of others. Add connectivity issues (especially when it launched) and you're better off not downloading it.

I wonder how much longer it's going to take to get back in the App Store?

I honestly think EA has abandoned it.

you really think EA would abandon this? I would think they had to pay through the nose to get the voices of The Simpsons on board and to write original material for the game. And judging by how many people d/l the game it seemed to be quite popular.
I know EA blows but I just can't imagine they would abandon the game. Then again it has been a month...

Seeing as it's a crappy freemium game, very little has been lost. It would be nice to think they're taking some time to rework the game for fun instead of a money grubbing cash-in, but I doubt it.

I just added a new friend today for one of the tasks and it says they have a new version when I try to go to their world and that I need to update to go to it, I don't get how that can be though and I'm afraid to update...?...

Current Fave Five iPad games:
Swordigo, Simpsons Tapped Out, Infinity Blade 2, DragonVale, Cloud Patrol

Lots of people get that. It's either a bug, or they may be using a different region. The game launched in a few other areas like Canadian iTunes about a week before the US, so many people were impatient and grabbed it from there or other sources.

Well, either abandoned or they're completely rewriting the mechanics of the game realizing that they can't just patch it. The network code seems to be abysmal. It requires such a fast connection and huge server capacity to effectively work. It relies far too much on the server and far too much data is being sent back and forth.

I wouldn't actually be surprised if EA was willing to fix things but the Simpsons big shots are cancelling the agreement for fear of tarnishing the franchise with a shoddy game.

Can't help but feel that this game is exactly like the recent episodes of the TV show. Not as witty as the classics and not as entertaining. Though its probably a tiny bit less broken than the TV show is these days :P
