Well, it's free so it'll only cost you your time. It's a fantastic game and I'm totally into it. It has minor problems with stability and network performance but I expect them to get sorted.

Got my 5 day mystery box today. 10 Donuts, not too shabby. I'll definitely have to purchase some donuts to get some of the better stuff. Nerdy teen sounds promising? 150% increase for job xp and cash.

Has anyone had a problem with the game sort of, losing actions upon lock and resume? I've had a few instances where I complete a job and assign a new job, but next time I go back in all of the old jobs are still waiting to be completed. I've gotten a "mission complete" popup twice doing this. I doubt I'm getting double rewards, and assume that my progress is for some reason just not being saved.

Game Impressions

I'm starting to think this game has some serious bugs. I was just going through my friends list, joining towns and completing things, when all of a sudden I joined someone else's town logged in as them. I had compete account access. The dollar and experience values were not my own. I never thought to look at donuts. I decided against tempting vandalism after rotateing a building to test my access and closed the app.

When I logged back in my town had been scrambled. The buildings were intact and in the proper locations but the ground tiles were a horrible mess of pavement and water and grass. The extra land tiles that I had purchased also became completely different some extended out in different directions, others greying out buildings.

I tried to force quit the app and then come back in and now it crashes when it loads my town. Same story on the iPad. I am extremely happy that I didn't purchase any donuts. It's nice to test out in smaller regions but game breakers like this are pretty serious and it's not ready for prime time.

To sum up this titles game breaking flaws:
-A bug exists which allows for unintentional unauthorized account access
-A possibly related bug can cause world and account corruption to the point of being unable to play
-Users on the app store are reporting issues purchasing donuts and not receiving them
-the app cannot connect after resuming and generally needs to be relaunched

Yeah! Out internationally! Great game!
Btw what does the homer statue? In its description it says; gives you premium items. What do they mean?

New bug.... now when I click on the dollar signs, or thumbs up when jobs are done and to collect tax, you get the sound, the icon disappears and you get neither xp or money...

Is this happening to anybody else?

I have the nerd. The 150% increase is just for himself. Not all.

Yeah, if you exit right after collecting reward or assigning jobs, the status won't get uploaded and when you come back nothing's been done. A way around that for me is to go to the list of friend's towns and come right back to my own. Takes forever due to crappy network code in the game.
