The Simpsons Tapped Out cheats videos are getting a lot of hits on Youtube these days. Using backgrounder onto cydia it’s very easy to advance the date and collect money however why do people call it a glitch? Is cheating a game glitch? There’s this video on youtube, it’s among the first results in Google if you type “The Simpsons Tapped Out Glitch” where this guy is showing you how to cheat by changing the date and he calls it a glitch … is it glitch because EA did not have a chance to punish or ban the cheating players yet? :) So it’s EA’s glitch not a The Simpsons: Tapped Out Glitch. What we call a glitch over here are the game errors when unusual things happen, or whenever you get these “special effects” that are not supposed to be part of the game. Here’s a small list of what we noticed to be glitches:

  • Buildings are set out of the are, or in spaces that are not supposed to be
  • Your characters (homer, lisa, apu…) areĀ disappearingĀ or missing
  • Roads pieces are missing
  • Springfield gets messed up when visiting a friend
  • Money and donuts get a reset
  • Being sent back a few levels
… and the list go on.
What’s your glitch?
