Experience or XP (XP) is a way of rewarding players for their progress and evolution in-game. Purchasing buildings, decorations, completing quests and unlocking characters are all possible ways to earn experience. When enough experience is obtained, the player moves onto a new level and the experience bar is reset.

Levels are certain tiers of experience that, when achieved, unlock new content such as buildings, decorations, and quests, as well as certain jobs. The player is also rewarded with Donut(s), as well as a comment or quote from a character, usually directed at the player.

The table below provides information on each level. As of January  2014, the current level cap is Level 38. Additionally, when the player reaches the level cap, they may continue earning experience to reach Bonus Levels for a chance to win 1-3 Donuts. The last 5 levels have a multiplier that affects the costs of buildings and experience earnt. In late February 2014 with the removal of the Valentine's Day 2014 Event, a new experience system was introduced. To increase their Friend level, the player must collect Friend Points (as opposed to experience), and as they increase their Friend level, they unlock more exclusive prizes. Also, when the player moved up a Friend level, the amount of Money they earn when performing actions in friends' Springfields increases by $2. So far, there are 6 of these levels available, and 5 prizes.

Level-up messagesEdit


  • As the Player moves through the bonus levels, the XP required to reach the next bonus level will increase until the Player is on a bonus level that requires 10,000,000 XP to level up. At that point the amount of XP to level up will remain at 10,000,000 until EA brings the next level out.
