Wookiee’s Favorite Halloween

Here’s our final Halloween installment.  Remember this was originally posted last Halloween.  And this one is PERFECT for this particular Halloween Event! (I swear sometimes Wookiee has ESP!)  Hope you enjoyed our Halloween memories throughout the day…and hope you had an awesome Halloween…filled with Candy and fun! 

TREEHOUSE OF HORROR XXII (In the Na’Vi)

Hey there!  How are my favorite Addicts doing?

Well, the day is upon us…  Hallowe’en aka All Hallow’s Eve.  I am so happy people took the Celtic festivity and it metamorphosed into the event it is today. While I’m aware that America seems to take this to excess (we like to Super Size things lol), I’m glad we do because it includes The Simpsons TOH episodes.

Goodbye Phase 2, Hello Phase 3: Long Protein Strings Are Here!

FYI Make SURE you update your game in the App Store (I know it’s on Google Play, not sure on the others…please let me know).  This Update will ensure you have the PROPER Version of Phase 3 (you should be earning 5 Protein Strings/squish…if you’re only earning 3 Update)

Update 8:45am EDT: UltraHouse 2 is back as well…i’ve updated it below.  Also, for those wondering…you can still craft prizes from the Probes Prize box.  So if you missed out on those they’ll still be there as well.

Also…wondering if you’re the only one who can craft another Hover-Copter?  You’re not.  Apparently it’s going around.  If you look in your Ray Gun Prize box it may show that you didn’t win it, even if you did.  Mine’s showing no Hover-Copter…but it’s still in my Springfield.  So yes…you can craft another one.  BUT I wouldn’t.  1. you don’t know if it’ll be able to be placed in your Springfield and 2. why spend the items on that when there is new stuff to craft?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The switch has happened…Ray Guns are gone & Protein Strings have arrived!  We’ll be working through the details of the new phase and have any changes up for you soon…but the basic principle remains the same.

2014-10-31 10.28.29

Squish Regillians, stop/send Grem-Aliens, shoot down UFOs & earn Treat Bags to earn enough Protein Strings to earn all the Protein String Prizes!

Kang will kick off Phase 3 with a 24hr quest.  So make sure he’s free.  You will also need Lisa for the quest.

Ray Gun Reminder…New Phase Starts Soon!

Update 10pm EDT: An update just hit the Google Play store…this adds nothing new to the game at the moment, so it’s most likely just glitch/bug fixes.  And/or preparation for the new phase in 6 hours!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a little reminder that in just about 8 hrs from now (0800GMT, 4am EDT) the Ray Guns will switch to Long Protein Strings.  And any Ray Gun prizes you have yet to win will lock up and you will no longer be able to earn Ray Guns to win them.

So….if you’re not quite at the Hover-Copter, in the next few hours try to wrap up your squishing and see if you can earn those extra Ray Guns to get there! (Remember to check out our end of Phase 2 tips)

I know a lot of you have MANY questions regarding the phase change…so I’m going to try and tackle as many as I can below… Continue reading
