Collect Your Favorite Characters
Help reunite Homer with his loved ones - Marge, Lisa, Maggie (and even sometimes Bart) as well as his not so loved ones, like Ned Flanders. Re-populate Springfield with your favorite characters, from Barflies (Barney Gumble) to Wise Guys (Fat Tony). Add them all, we wont judge! Dress your characters to the nines with options like Daredevil Bart or Lizard Queen Lisa, and relive scenes from your favorite episodes of The Simpsons!
Take Charge of Your Springfield
Cant control your own life? Now you can control the lives of the citizens of Springfield instead! Make Apu work ridiculously long shifts at the Kwik-E-Mart, have Moe smuggle illegal animals, or make Homer toil poolside all day that last one might not be so bad.
Build Your Own Springfield
Think Homer deserves to live next door to Moes? Or the monorail can survive a few more sharp twists and turns? Or Krustyland needs 40% more cartoon violence and 40% fewer health inspectors? Well you can finally make Springfield just the way you want it! Expand your town to the Waterfront, grow its businesses with the glamourous shops of Springfield Heights, and enjoy its sights, all with only a few taps.

Sure is. This game isn't so great either. Played for maybe 25 minutes, deleted.

Only Mr. Burns would take a fantastic IP like the Simpsons and pair it with a crap freemium model. I'm gonna drink a Flaming Moe and avoid this like if it was a plate full of Springfield three-eyed fish.

I'm actually quite surprised by this. I was expecting it to be total crap. But it's got loads of Simpsons humor, the intro for one is hilarious. Sure it's another farm/town/whatever freemium game but with the real voices and humor this is looking like I might actually play it for a while.
It is still the usual affair though. Do a mission wait X amount of time and repeat.
