20 years after its TV debut, a Whacking Day episode-themed update is now available for The Simpsons: Tapped Out for iOS and Android until May 2.

The update features a new mini-game where players can earn currency and prizes by whacking snakes with a baton and two new quests: defeat the Serpent Menace and save the snakes from Whacking Day.

New episode-significant structures include Fort Sensible, Lugash's Gym, Duff Stadium and the Springfield Coliseum. Additional characters featured from the Whacking Day adventure include Ninja Homer, Miss Springfield, gymnast Lisa, Drederick Tatum and washboard abs Willie.

Miscellaneous Whacking Day-themed items include shirts and colorful practice snake sticks.
