Working on my Tan – Poll Results

Hi there fellow addicts.

The results of my recent Tan Lines Resort poll are in and If I could just drag you away from working on your own tans for a minute or two I’ll share them with you.

Tan Lines Luxury Resort Island

Firstly I’d like to take a minute to thank my fellow addicts who took the time to respond to the poll, without your interaction it just wouldn’t be possible to have fun posts like this, or to show TinyCo what we are thinking and would like to see in our games going forward. So thanks for taking that minute out of your day to be part of this community.

Now on with the show, firstly if you missed my original post you will find it here; although the poll is now closed you might like to see the funny scenes Tan Lines has brought to my game.

However apart from having a giggle at my characters antics, the other reason for my post was to find out how you’re all getting on trying to get that much coveted character, Evil Monkey, and what you would like to see from the resort in the future. So without further ado here’s what you said.

Evil MonkeyHave you unlocked Evil Monkey?  


Answer Votes Percentage
I’m not far away from unlocking him so I need stop completing polls and get back to my monkey business. 178 46%
I’ll be collecting my pension before I collect that cheeky, I mean Evil Monkey. 188 48%
Don’t be jealous guys but I’ve unlocked him and he’s swinging around somewhere in my Quahog. 18 5%
I’ve got an aversion to all things monkey, I mean evil, so I’m not even trying. 6 2%

From the results above it would seem many of us are confident we will have Evil Monkey over next few months, yes I really mean months. But just as many of you feel like your treading water and are a long way away. For those lucky enough to already have him, what can I say apart from I’m so not jealous. And for those who don’t want him, why, oh why would you forsake him.

If you have unlocked Evil Monkey what What was your reactioN TO GETTING HIM?

Evil Monkey


Answer Votes Percentage
Let out a big sigh of relief and started monkeying around. 9 33%
Smiled then went ape when you realised how much of your time you’d spent unlocking him. 5 19%
Was so happy I just want bananas. 3 11%
Was happy but wondered what I was going to do with all my spare characters now. 10 37%

This is interesting for the fact only 27 people responded that they had him, I feel this shows just how difficult a task bringing Evil Monkey to our game is, and for me it makes me feel better that I’m not alone in not having him, yet.

Have you bought any decorations that are available with Stewie bucks? Stewie Bucks Gold


Answer Votes Percentage
Yes I’ve been throwing my Stewie bucks at everything and anything. 16 5%
Spent a few Stewie Bucks to keep me interested until I have enough for Evil Monkey. 93 27%
No, access to my Stewie bucks account is locked until Evil Monkey is mine, all mine. 232 68%

From what you’ve said above, it would appear most of us are spending our Stewie bucks wisely, and not willing to go on a spending spree until we’ve got Evil Monkey in our sights. And it’s  good to know I’m not the only Stewie Bucks Scrooge out there.

Do you think such a difficult character to unlock should come with a clam drop task as a reward for all our hard work?? Clam Icon


Answer Votes Percentage
Yes, please make it happen TinyCo. 320 89%
No, I’m just happy having him in my game. 41 11%

Okay, this one’s for TinyCo to decide, but I think we can see there would be a big outpouring of thanks if TinyCo should put a clam task in Evil Monkeys arsenal. But it’s also refreshing to see that 11% of the voters on this were just happy with what they’ve got, thanks for your honesty even although you probably knew you were sailing against a tidal wave of Yes’s.

Would you like to see any other new character prizes added to Tan Lines? event characters


Answer Votes Percentage
Yes please, TinyCo. 273 76%
No, I’m still recovering from trying get Evil Monkey? 18 5%
Don’t know, as not sure I could go through all that again. 67 19%

This answer I think more than any sums up the warmth we feel towards the Tan Lines Resort in our games, despite the fact we’ve been working for months collecting Stewie Bucks, and will probably spend months more before most of us get Evil Monkey, most of us, over three quarters in fact, want more of the same.

So there you have it fellow addicts, please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments. And look out for more fun polls in the future.

  1. play every day and I’m still probably 6 months away from getting evil monkey 😦 on side note is there a way to trade money backwards? if not there should be a way from gold to red to blue, etc.


  2. So is no one looking to get Barbara Pewtershmit??

    I thought she was more achievable than the monkey?

    And woah?! Some freemium player out there have actually been able to get the evil monkey?!?
    HOW? Lol, tell me your secrets!!! Is it because you all have 40+ extra characters and filling 3+ floors or something? Jeez, congrats guys!!! Tip of the hat to ya!


    • I can fill 6 floors, 7 if no event on, which is never. I’m about 70 bucks away from getting Evil Monkey. Some of us already have Barbara from the 2014 Christmas event, when she was first available in the game. Same with King Butt.


      • Oooooh! I had no idea! I only started days before the Princesses Bride event and am now working on the brewery district, i only have 2 floors filled so when I get the max 3 green bucks I celebrate a little. But as for the evil monkey I don’t see him in my near future, or far off future, hes an expensive one.

        Oh and I fell in love with the game because of that event! Ive been waiting for another event like that, which the pirates come close. But with that one you got an extra character instead of outfits.


  3. I finally got the monkey a few days ago and now I have no reason to complete the daily quests….I still am obviously in the hope of another character becoming available this way.


  4. the reason why i like evil monkey (even though he is hard to get and i haven’t got him yet) is because he is achievable. he is within a freemium player’s reach. unlike many of the characters and skins in the events over the last year or so.
