The Simpsons: Tapped Out – Free in the App Store

You know wht the best type of game is? A free one! Well, I supposed that’s not always true. There are tons of crap games in the App Store, but this new free offering from The Simpsons is pretty amazing. They could have charged quite a bit for this game, but it is completely free! The Simpsons: Tapped Out takes a different approach to the SIM City type of games.
