Level 43 Side & Premium Walkthroughs

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 43 has arrived in Springfield and with it comes a much needed update to Krustyland!  It’s about time Springfield’s favorite (and only) theme park got some much needed attention!

While Level 43 does contain a main quesline (involving Princess Penelope & Krusty), there are also several other side quests/dialogues that will take place…depending on how you play out the update.  Some of these dialogues will pop up for you even if you’re not currently at Level 43, some will appear if you have certain premium characters & others will pop up for you if you purchase the premium buildings & rides.  So there’s plenty to do with this update to keep you tapping!

Let’s take a look at these little side/premium quests that will pop up throughout your Level 43 journey……WARNING Dialogue Spoilers Below

Turbo Tappin’ Level 43: The Princess and the Pea-Brain

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, Level 43 has dropped in our little tapping devices and with it comes a much needed update to Krustyland!  It’s about time Springfield’s favorite (and only) theme park got some much needed love!

Speaking of love….this update contains a fun little love interest questline for our resident clown, Krusty!  Yes, that makes back-to-back updates that are focused on Krusty…what can I say some people just need to be the center of attention!

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 43!

As we mentioned in the Level 43 rundown post Krusty gets things rolling for the main questline of Level 43 and that kicks off the need to build Krusty’s Giant Wheel, which takes 24hrs.  So now….let’s get to Tappin’ shall we?!

Level 43 Here and It’s A Paddlin’

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Dropping in to let you know a little update just hit our games…LEVEL 43!!


More details as we go through them but for now know that Homer kicks it off and you have to send him to KRUSTYLAND!!!

Note: Some players are reporting Krusty starts it off for them.  It will vary game to game.  Both Krusty and Homer start questlines for the level.  In both of my games Homer started it, but then Krusty picked it back up after.

The Yard Sale and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Yard Sale time in Springfield!  What was old is once new again!  So just how do all those new/old items impact the Conform-O-Meter?  As we’re approaching the halfway mark of the event, I thought now would be a good time to take a look at how all of these items impact the Conform-O-Meter ratings.

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.

While the Yard Sale brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements (Level 42 did though!), it did bring a bunch of old items back into Springfield.  Let’s take a look at how these TSTO Classic items impact the conform-o-meter:

Item Cost Category Points
Ultra House 2 90 Donuts Indolence 10
Cool Brown House 120 Donuts Indolence 10
Mayan Calendar 300 Donuts (Combo) Vanity 100
Practice Snake 75 Donuts Vanity 100
Mr. Sparkle Billboard 30 Donuts Consumerism 10
Ice God 30 Donuts Vanity 10
*Helter Shelter does not impact the conform-o-meter

So there you have it my friends!  The complete rundown of how all of the Yard Sale Goodies impact the Conform-O-Meter.  Lots of new-old decorations/buildings to improve your ratings all around!

How’s your Conform-O-Meter doing?  Are you maxed out?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

Mad Men of Springfield: Moe Szyslak

Welcome to another new addition to Addicts, the Mad Men of Springfield. We will be going into depth on the history and background of the male species running around our lil towns as well as those not yet in the game.

Just think about it. What Man living in Springfield is “normal”? Not a single one that I can think of. They all have at least ONE thing wrong with them. Seriously! Think about it. How many issues does Moe have? A Reverend a “little” obsessed with trains? An owner of a Kwik-E-Mart that goes to counseling with the same person that robs him, on a daily basis? Not to mention the “inbreeding” and other strange happenings going on at the farm. Oh the idiosyncrasies.

So sit back, relax, grab your favorite beverage, and enjoy as we kram your brains with some Simpson knowledge of the MAD MEN OF SPRINGFIELD.
