The Simpsons: Tapped Out puts the real world to shame with these stats [Infographic]


After an incredibly rocky start, The Simpsons: Tapped Out has gone on to find extraordinary success on iPhone and iPad. EA's virtual version of Springfield quickly made its way to the top of the iTunes App Charts, where it sat for most of the last month thanks to a popular "Treehouse of Horror" Halloween update that made references back to the TV show.

Now that the Halloween event has passed, the folks at EA have released some interesting, and even jaw-dropping stats about the Simpsons: Tapped Out, showing that sometimes, life in a virtual world can be more impressive than life out in reality. In terms of the app's Halloween update, the game saw players carving and placing 2.25 million Jack-O-Lanterns in their Springfields, which almost matches the number of pumpkins that were expected to be carved in the US. Even more impressive still, the Treehouse of Horror game update was played by at least 6.93 million people, while the latest Treehouse of Horror television show had 6.52 million viewers.
