Simpsons-Tapped-Out on computer

The Simpsons Tapped Out has been stealing many hours away from gamers who happen to have an iOS or Android device, but now there is a way you can play the game right on your PC or your Mac. Which is music to PC owners ears everywhere. Check out this guide so you can enjoy The Simpsons Tapped Out on your PC. If you want you can sync the game up with the one on your phone, but you can fully enjoy this as a totally separate game on your PC if you want.  This can be done by using  Bluestusks a third party software which  is an Android emulator for the computer.

Step 1

Go to the website www.bluestacks.com. Once there simply download the software for Windows users. If it says during installation that your video card is not compatible then sorry, but that is it for your PC. The only way around this is if you buy a brand new video card
**Windows 8 users may need to follow these extra steps**
Programme files
Bluestacks folder
Compatibility tab, and then select an older version of windows.

Step 2

Fire up your new Bluestacks programme and then click the top charts button at the top of the screen. Hopefully Simpsons Tapped Out will be there. If it’s not don’t worry just click on the search icon and type in Simpsons Tapped Out.

Step 3

Click on Simpsons Tapped Out App. You will be given three different versions ALWAYS pick the Google Play version which is the one on the right. This version is much more stable and will give you a better game play experience.
You will need a GMail account, but if you have a YouTube account you can just use that. If not it only takes a minute to create a GMail account.

Step 4

You will then see another box which will have some information about the game in it. There will be an install icon on the right hand side, click it. A new box will pop up click the accept button and then the game will start to install.

Step 5

Go back to the bluestacks home page. You can either click the home page icon or shut the whole thing down and re-open.


Step 6

Click on my apps and The Simpsons Tapped Out should be there. It is recommended you have an EA Origin account, but you can play the game without one. Click the app to start the game.

Step 7

You are ready to play!!! You will now have the option to play the game anonymously or you can log in with your EA Origin account. Either way is fine, but if you want to be able to play with your friends and visit there virtual Springfield then you will need to have a EA Origin account.

Step 8

Have fun.
