I'll admit that I watched this episode of South Park - essentially a 22-minute long indictment of The Simpsons Tapped Out - while playing The Simpsons Tapped Out on my iPad. The irony was not lost on me.
I'm happy to say that I didn't throw too much money down this particular well: My tallied up iTunes receipts equal just about four bucks. But it's absolutely true that above all I've been burning a lot of time on this game that isn't really fun and isn't really a game. Time I could be using at the very least playing better games.
I've learned my lesson. App deleted.
