How are you enjoying the game so far?

It’s hard to believe that the game hasn’t even been out for three weeks yet, it feels like it has been around for months. Now that the dust has settled and you’ve had a chance to get a feel for the game, how does it compare to your expectations?

How did you hear about the game? Do you also play Tapped Out, and if so are you balancing both games simultaneously? One town building simulator can be hard enough to manage. Through most of the comments I’ve read it seems that people have either decided to move to Quahog or stay in Springfield.

Move Building 1

As someone who wasn’t pulled in by my initial experience, does the game improve post-tutorial? I find that one of the things that makes these games enjoyable are the way the creative teams for these shows contribute to the writing. Does Quest for Stuff capture the humor of Family Guy the same way Tapped Out does for The Simpsons? Let us know in the comments.

Are you dining on donuts or chowing down on clams?

  2. I don’t like this random awarding of items needed to complete tasks. For nearly a month, I have been trying to collect three eyeballs to complete anime peter. I have been putting the doctor and crazy peter on continuous 6 hour quests, with no results. That is ridiculous!! What a waste of time. I can only imagine what it will take Indiana Jones peter to free cleavelkand. I hope a month is enough.

  4. Not enjoying it very much, it’s glitchy and charachters Expecialy Quagmire not showing up during conversations, just his name under a blank space while asking to watch Lois give that other girl a backrub and he doesn’t show up the entire quest! and I have pictures of it too!
    Also the game reloads and I have to start the sessions again when I click on the bandana in the quest to make Rambo Lois!
    I Emailed you a pic of that weeks ago but never heard back from anyone on that.

    • Actually Quagmire has stooped showing up completely in all conversations! You just see his speech bubble.

      Is this happening a lot or is it just me?

      • I have not seen this one. Please continue to report these kinds of issues to TinyCo so if there is a glitch, then can fix it ASAP. They are really on top of a lot of these. Several glitch fixes coming soon with some updates.

        • This is what I sent them.. I hope they fix it..
          Do you think I left anything out?

          Quagmire stopped showing up in the game during conversations with other characters, all I see is his name under where he should be and floating chat bubble, but I see who he is talking to.
          Also when I click the bandana under the Rambo Quest for Lois, I get an Image of the maid saying “Config Empty for id awfulpersonhattery in Buildings”.
          And when you click OK, the game restarts from the last save point.
          And even though I played all weekend almost all day, I saw about 25 clowns total, how can you complete the Clown Costume quest when they don’t show up enough to even half complete it?

          • Looks good. If you have screen shots, you can tell them you have that too and can send them if needed. Sometimes they help.

            As for Rambo Lois, I believe an Update should come soon to fix that one. Still, good to let them know you are impacted. Especially if you use the contact direct in your game. That way they can see your ID and look into your game itself and visually see what you see.

        • I can tell you this… This game isn’t even 1/4 as good as The Simpsons Game.. Btw, what was the last day to get Shari Bobbins?
          I bought lots of pink Eggs w/doughnuts, (I’m Blue Eggs) and got tons of fences and other junk and just need her.
          Was it the last day the 13th?

          And do you think an Evil Bunny can Survive in a Family Guy world?

          • I can answer your TSTO questions on the other site 😉 …and tsk tsk tsk…I warned and warned to not waste donuts to try and get gold box prizes. You will regret it. Should have listened and waited. Thursday is just round the corner. 13th, yes.

            I do like this game. It has good potential as it is nothing like TSTO. If it was a mirror to it, I would get bored. They are still so new and working out bugs and issues. I want to see where it goes in a few months time. Then I will decide.

            There is ALWAYS room for an Ebil Bunny. 😉

            • I thought you meant This Thursday! Do’h,

              Then again TSO had a rocky start, even though I had nothing to play it on I still followed it’s progress.. I heard it was even removed from the App Store for a few weeks due to so many bugs, but if Family Guy can someday get as good as TSTO, it might be worth waiting and seeing what happens..

              What’s an Ebil Bunny? Is is an Evil Bunnys Even more Evil Twin!!!

              • Yes…THIS Thursday. Keep an eye on your game. Next week on the 13th is the end…unless EA extends it.

                TSTO had no access for android until months after launch. Some bugs so bad those android users were locked out of game for even more months.

                And yes, Ebil Bunny is so much worse…or is that better? 😉

  5. I couldn’t figure out where to post a question about the achievements in the game. On the one for collecting $500k coins, is that over the course of time or do I need to have have $500k in my total. When I open it, there isn’t a percentage like there is on other achievements so I was just curious which one it’s supposed to be. I’m sure I’m still far away from collecting it over time and I have just under 18k currently, so clearly far off that way as well.

  6. I’m personally underwhelmed. I hate that glitch where you set tasks, come back later and time hardly moved. I dislike that you need to be on Facebook to have friends on it. I refuse to do that. I do like the writing it’s inappropriate and funny just like the show. But in my opinion there’s a lot of room for improvement. I spend money on tapped out but have no desire to do so for this game. I love your blogs though I read them frequently, keep up the great work 🙂

  7. I currently play both Family Guy and TSTO, and I love FG, it’s now my main game. I think they captured the feel of Family Guy perfectly and I think it actually does it better than TSTO does if I’m being honest. At the moment I’m juggling both games, but I now play TSTO as a purely fremium game as I’d much rather have Family Guy as premium – Although I tap a lot less in my Springfield now. The premium content is expensive, but we only have a few premium items avaliable at the moment, when we get more updates and more premium content the prices may change.

  9. I started playing tsto a year ago when I got a new ipad. I would never have even considered downloading it if it had been called Family Guy tapped out., as my obsession is really focused with the simpsons. But after being at the max level and commenting on almost every tsto addicts post for about six months, I was exited for something new. This game has lived up to my expectations so far, but I wish there was more room to make you quahog your own, like there is in tsto. It is clear that I could never be “obsessed” with this to the level I am with tsto.

  10. I am liking it so far, my main issue is that things are taking a while to settle in but i think that is no bad thing. Getting the costumes is fun but its taking TIME and the tasks feel a bit long to maybe gain 1/15th of what is needed. Then again I remember the same issue with TSTO and it taking ages to get money to build simple things, I guess the goals are different here in TSTO for a long time the goal was 5* across the board, that seems to have been thrown away a bit.

  11. I think I am enjoying this game more than TSTO just now. I am still playing both but feel that even though it can take some time to save up enough stuff to unlock characters or outfits it feels more rewarding when I do which compared with the tediousness of finding my 10th pond for easter doesn’t really help TSTO. I also think this game is a lot funnier as the tasks and the comments are actually funny where TSTO just seems to try to be funny by EA using it as an excuse to make fun of it’s players for complaining. I’m also taking my time with this as I don’t want to keep ahead of the updates and get bored of it unless there is some kind of reward like extra clams to keep us going.

  13. I think the game has captured the humor of family guy quite well. I’ve been playing TSTO since shortly after its release on android and the only thing I’m finding is that it is such a new format that I need a little adjusting. When I started TSTO things were fairly simple and info was easily obtainable. With the FGg we are all kinda learning together. It has definitely kept me entertained and I don’t see myself quitting either game. 😀

    To Jayrs: You may only visit 20 friends in a row, then you have to wait a while for it to reset. As far as how this game compares with the Simpsons’, I am finding the Easter event tedious and unrewarding while the Quest for Stuff is dynamite! I love the all voiced characters, the great writing that matches the humor of the show and the game play mechanics. All around, this is a breath of fresh air, after I’ve been playing Tapped Out for a year. They really got it right. The Family Guy game seems to move along at a good pace. I’ll be playing for a long time.

  15. I am LOVING the game so much! I was a bit skepticle at first but when I played it I thought it was truly awesome! 🙂
    Kinda more focusing on FG: TQFS rather than TS: TO because I am finished with the easter event in tsto, and I WANT GILLIAN IN MY QUAHOG! she is one of my fav characters! hope she is voiced! But after the Easter event in tsto I will be doing a massive re design so that will take up most of my time afterwards! 🙂

    • Redesigns are time consuming for sure!! I did one shortly before the easter event and after a week I really just threw the rest together. So I started again last week trying to be a little more patient. I’m pretty much set, aside from a few more easter items and touch up decorations. Quahog has suffered a lot because of it, but hey, by the time I catch up, maybe we will be seeing our first content update 😉

  16. I have been playing TSTO for 2 years now and Family guy has def done a good job. Only things id like to see is the icon on the top left of the screen to click on and find your characters instead of looking on the map. Not a fan of the construction time and being only one guy with the option of buying more. So far great game. I can see theres going to need to be more characters and more land to develop.

  17. I’m in love with this game! I’ve left Candy Crush Saga and Songpop for TFGTQFS. The quotes alongside the idea of rebuilding Quahog bit by bit, is really fun. I wish one thing, though. An easier way to get clams. I wish I was guaranteed at least one clam from every friend every 24 hour. Or a pile of clams for every district.

    Oh, one more thing. A one minute task for every character. That would be really nice.

    Gotta go. Gotta try to unlock Brian. 🙂

  19. Love the game and they have fixed stuff. Still having problem with Visiting friends. Have about 100 but as soon as I do the first 20, I cannot visit anymore. Already contacted them about it. Also needs some touch sensitivity tweets as when u collect money it may actually click on something else. Not tsto, but great potential if they fix bugs. Also clams are highly priced and needs consideration to lower a little.

    • You are allowed to visit 20 friends every 20 hours no matter how many Facebook friends you have. You can also earn 5 clams per week at a max of 1 per day.
