THOH Ray Gun Prizes: Breaking Down Bulldozer-saurus

Hey Howdy Hey Alien Squishing Tappers!

Well….unless you’ve been living under a rock you know that Halloween has arrived in Springfield!  A dark haze has over taken the streets of Springfield and Aliens are on the attack!  By now we’re all busy squishing and stopping those aliens dead in their tracks….and earning as many Ray Guns as we can!

With this event EA is trying something new (for them) and releasing items/prizes in phases.  Two prizes each phase, three phases, for a total of 6 prizes all together.  For the second phase, which lasts 11 days and ends 10/31 (0800GMT), you can win 2 prizes by collecting Ray Guns.  The first prize awarded at 2,825 Ray Guns is the Bulldozer-saurus.

A Little Thursday Night Fun: THOH Promo/Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

How are my favorite Tappers doing this fine evening?  Everyone glad it’s almost Friday?

I was making my usual internet rounds when I noticed a little video on EA’s TSTO Facebook Page.

TSTOFB

At first I thought this was just the normal TSTO Trailer…you know the one we see at the start of TSTO.  Where Homer blows up Springfield.  But I love that video…and I had a little time to kill so I decided to make myself giggle and watch it.

Low and behold it wasn’t the intro video…instead it was a Trailer for the TSTO Halloween Event! Check it out:

How does the new one stack up with the video we got for last year’s event:

And….we’re now at (about) the halfway point for the Halloween Event.  So let’s turn this into a little open thread (I know it’s not Sunday, but hey it’s always a good day to talk right?)  and talk about how YOU’RE doing with the Event.  Are you still enjoying it?  What prizes have you won?  What are you most looking forward to? Have you encountered any frustrating glitches?  Sound off in the comments below,you know we LOVE hearing from you!

 

 

Crafting For Halloween: Hugo

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So, one of the neat things about the Halloween update is that for the first time we can create our own little adventure…sorta.  With the introduction of the Make-A-Thing Shop we have the ability to create our own prizes, by picking and choosing what we want to make…and earning goodies accordingly.  (or in some cases earning goodies and choose what we want based on that)

Bunny gave us a great overview on earning, choosing and crafting…but now let’s take it all a step further and look at what happens when you craft and add the items to YOUR Springfield.

First up…let’s take a look at the “Good Son” Hugo…

Remember…crafting Hugo and running through his questline is what will unlock the Spooky House for you.  Details on the Spooky House and how to get it will be below as well…

Turbo Tappin’ Level 46: Mrs. Muntz

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, smack dab in the middle of Halloween Level 46 has dropped in our little tapping devices!   And finally we get a little more freemium estrogen in our Springfields, as Level 46 introduces Mrs. Muntz!  (Bet you didn’t see THAT coming?)

So now that there’s a new Level in our tapping devices, you know what that means right?  Time for another Turbo Tappin!  So with that let’s jump right in and Turbo Tap the Main Questline (Freemium) of Level 46!

As we mentioned in the Level 46 rundown post the main questline is started by Nelson, and his need for an adult back in his life.  Prompting you to build Classy Girls Strip Club, and wait 24hrs while it builds.  So now….let’s get to Tappin’ shall we?!
