Hey Addicts, Caption This!

Sometimes TSTO gives us humorous little moments when we capture our characters doing rather strange things.  These posts are all about those strange and funny moments! Twice a week we’ll be posting a Caption This! moment where we want you, the Addicts readers, to put on your writing caps and come up with what you think is happening in the screenshot. Post your captions in the comments below. We can’t wait to see how creative and funny you guys can be!

Frink’s Herbicide Squirter Upgrades

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Act 2 is upon us and it introduces a whole new swarm of Mutants to attack…Sideshow Bob Clones!  (they do make an excellent soup stock!)

And it wouldn’t be a TSTO Event unless Professor Frink came up with some kind of invention to save the day…and he hasn’t let us down this time!  Frink Co presents….the Herbicide Squirter!

herbicidedispenser_menuThe Herbicide Squirter is a FREE item you’ll unlock once you’ve completed The Soup Thickens Pt. 4 and started The Science of Cooking (questline walkthrough is here) that will help you clear Clone Bobs quicker!  And each time you upgrade the Squirter you’ll increase your tap radius (how many Bob’s you can get in 1 tap) and some increase the payouts of crafting materials (Fertilizer, DNA and Corn) for each one you tap.

So let’s take a closer look at this squirter and what happens when you upgrade….

The Curtain Is Soon Closing On Terwilliger Act 1 (And Kids are All Fight)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Here we are in the final few hours of Terwilliger Act 1…are you ready for Act 2 to start up?!

I know many of you are stressing out about not earning enough items to craft the Farmer’s Market or not getting enough spades (spatrowvels) to unlock all of the prizes…but don’t sweat it!  Really.  It’s going to be ok.

Let’s break down what’s leaving, what’s staying and what’s cha- cha- cha-changing, when Act 2 kicks off!

Note: Act 2 Offically Starts at 0800 GMT (4am EDT) on 4/28…

Level 51/Kids Are All Fight and the Conform-O-Meter

Now I know we’re in the middle of the Terwilliger Event, but I figured now was as good a time as any to post the Level 51 Conform-o-Meter Requirements (that I wrote up before Terwilligers hit).  I’ve also added details about the Kids Are All Fight Episode Tie-in items that hit our games earlier this week.  Check out the bottom of the post for details on those.  

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 51 arrived in Springfield a few weeks ago and with it arrives a couple of previously deceased characters (back from the dead) as well as some new buildings & decorations to help improve our Conform-O-Meters!

The Conform-O-Meter is an important part of Tapped-Out because it provides you with a bonus boost in your cash and  XP from everything you collect in the game.  When you achieve a 5-Star Town (it’s max rating) you will receive a 5% bonus on all money and XP collected in your town.  If you missed the previous Conform-O-Meter posts check here for the basics and here for how many points you’ll need to reach 5 stars.

Of course with the release of Level 51 many of the requirements to maintain 5 Stars on your Conform-O-Meter have changed, so let’s check it out and see what the new requirements are.  So now you’ll have all the information you need to maintain that 5-Star Springfield!

Terwilliger Guide to Crafting: Act One Crafting

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Terwilliger time in TSTO!  Yes, the Terwilliger’s are back (well at least Cecil so far) and they’re set on making not only the Simpson’s lives a nightmare, but ours as well!  Mutant Veggies, upgrades and CRAFTING!  Ahhh!

So now let’s breakdown all the fun of Crafting during Act 1…shall we?
