Halloween is right around the corner near the end of this month and The Simpsons: Tapped Out has just made an exclusive update for this specific event.

We’re pretty excited to see brand new content added into the Simpsons: Tapped Out and players will definitely not be disappointed with this brand new update. Perhaps the biggest change you’ll notice for the game is that the splash screen has changed completely to fit the spooky and scary theme of Halloween.

The juice of this update is that there are limited time characters, buildings and quests. You’ll also have new characters like Edna and Otto Mann (premium character).

A note on the previous character Nelson, is that the cost for building the Muntz House been lowered (thank heavens).

Notes on the Halloween Stuff in The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Our game hasn’t shown how to get the new features specified in the update notes yet (Oct. 2rd 2012, 6PM EST). We’ll update as soon as they stream the update worldwide.

The content is probably locked until a certain time or. We’re not happy about downloading 127MB of data for this game. Definitely not bandwidth friendly for mobile wireless users


That was quick. Just 30 minutes after the update, it seems many of the Halloween items have been unlocked in your game! Including a mini game! Check them out in your game!


You need to ensure Homer is free and has a bubble for the Quest. He will say “Halloween is coming! Let’s crank up the “spooky” factor around here by building the Springfield Cemetery!”

  1. It past 30 minutes nothing has changed I’m using this on my iPad 2 can you help or give me advice.

  2. It’s didn’t work it past 30 minutes and nothing happen on my iPad 2 can you help and give me advice please because I really want to have a appertunity to do these please.

  3. It says the trees, decorations etc are limited time. Do you think it’s only limited to acquire or to use during the event. I wanna make a massive Halloween section in my Springfield, if it permanently stays there all year around that would be good. I’m Australian also, without any cable tv. Are you going to update us on the secret message? Thanks

  4. I want to know about the artiffacts, where can you get them?

    • First you have to build the pet cemetery. There will be a little event with Homer and Lisa. You will receive your first two of the seven pieces by squashing zombie pets. From what is said it seems that you will get more by squashing more zombies. A zombie will also tell you twice to watch the treehouse of horror episode on October 7th so maybe that will have some clue to finishing it.

    • Pretty sure you get the artifacts after you squish zombies.
      Also if you want more pieces of candy, you can earn it by sending the kid characters trick or treating

      • Yeah but that takes 16 hours for one piece. It’s much faster to take the eggs and TP you get from zombie squashing and go make a mess of your neighbors Springfield. It’s good for them too because cleaning the mess helps their righteousness rating. If you want to spend donuts the wicked treat boxes often give you lots of candy or you can by the witch costume for Marge. Witch marge is the BEST character ever! Everything she does earns 1 candy so you could get a piece an hour is you like but she can also use magic to speed up your crops, helping you earn way more money!

        • P.S. If you speed up witch Marge in the middle of her crop speeding spell that just stops the spell and the time on your crops goes back to normal.

  5. I got it all downloaded and it rocks just have same problem want to build a big section but don’t want to spend donuts and then wake up after hollowween and every thing is gone

  6. How do I get ned the devil?

  7. Is there any way to buy the treats? Or a glitch I can use to get treats? I need like 600+ treats.

  8. After I build the pet cemetery non of the Halloween task come out, anyone know what’s wrong? I’m a level 13 by the way

  9. I really need friends. add me dimetri97

  10. The new version is fun. But after all the effort to build it…I'd like to be able to keep it if I wanted to. I love Halloween and would love to be able to keep a little undead and well in Springfield year round.

  11. So Iv'e hacked my game, and I can tell everyone what happens and how to unlock everything up to Heck House and Burns Monster. First off, you will unlock the Mayan God from the Mayan Calender which is built with Artifacts found from simply SMASHING ZOMBIES! Be patient, the pieces will appear. Once the Mayan God appears, your hope and excitement will drop immediately upon realizing he does absolutely nothing but walk around. The answer to his question is THE ZUNE! Answer correctly and you will get 10 donuts and MAYAN costume for Homer! This gives you all new jobs… for candy. So then you do a few of Homers jobs for Candy, until Frink shows up, making you bult the SUPER COLLIDER for 50 pieces of candy. With the Super Collider, you create a black hole which releases the Ned the Devil costume! This is where things get complicated. You will now start doing quests with Ned the Devil, and building Halloween buildings in Springfield! First you will build the House Of Evil, which will unlock the Talking Krusty Doll, which also does absolutely nothing! It does however offer Homer the Job of running from him, which is a quest. Then you will build the Bad Dream House! The Bad Dream House and the House of Evil also make candy rather then money. With the Bad Dream House you will get a lot of quests involving residents to sleep in the Bad Dream House (Takes 12 hours and gives you a piece of candy and XP) After these quests, you now how to save up 600 Pieces of Candy to unlock Burns Monster and Heck House! I'm doing this right now, but one last side note, which may lead to unlocking Kang, during a dialogue scene, Cletus and Frink mention The Ray Gun is needed to destroy the spaceship that floats across the screen, which costs 150 donuts (Really? :/) which would be used to destroy the ship, and that COULd possibly unlock Kang. Just a theory.

  12. Need friends add me halfbreed2.

  13. The answer is Zune. Add me spyder7392001

  14. Like my page on facebook for news on the updates and unlockables!

    • Hey, do you know if there is any statement from EA if the Halloween buildings/characters/items will stay and be usable after Halloween? I don't want to spend 150 donuts for Kang if he's gone after 3 weeks.. Cheers

    • No there isnt one as of now, but judging from how they're charging buildings/characters for donuts I would guess not! They wouldn't screw us fans that badly, would they? Let's hope not!
      a few second

  17. how do I change costumes?????

  18. I have all the artifacts of the calendar and I put it together but nothing is happening, can someone help ?

    • You have to put the pieces together in the correct way

    • You need to piece it together in a certain way. I’ve noticed a few neighbours have it all but in the wrong order. Once you have it (looks kinda symmetrical) you will be able to proceed and answer the questions (the Zune being the answer).

    • Same thing for me. I gathered all the Artifacts but nothing is happening. The last quest of the artifacts is blocked.

  19. It’s the long skinny piece had same problem look close at the pitcher you might need to place it in the other direction.

  20. You were right ! Thank you soooo much Tayra and Snowguard, 😉

  34. FYI when you visit a neighbors springfield if they have the cemeteries with the stack of cash above it you can go there for 2 out of your 3 daily "visits" to get cash, but the cemeteries also often give out toilet paper, eggs, and treats, so they are worth tapping for the cash moreso than the regular houses. Same goes for the house of evil, it also gets you a treat along with the cash.
