Should I Buy…Returning Halloween Items??

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Halloween time in Springfield! Leaves are falling, there’s a dimness to our towns, something is floating in the water…oh and items from Halloween Past have returned to our stores!

As with Halloweens past (and other events) EA has decided to make old items new again, and give players who might have missed out on something a second chance to get it.  Of course that second chance doesn’t come with out a price, as many of the returning items that were once free are now premium.

Recently EA brought back several items from 2013 and 2012, Frog Prince, Freak Mobile, King Snorky, House of Evil, Krusty Doll, Bad Dream House, Devil Flanders, Heck House & Witch Marge (with her Cauldron)..oh and we’ll even cover Booberella here too!.  Now many of you are curious if any of these items are worth your hard earned donuts, and we’ve broken a lot of these down for the previous events…however we decided it’d be great to give them another look in a Halloween Should I Buy reboot post!

So now let’s take a look and see if these items are worth YOUR donuts!

Halloween Walkthrough: Moog

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Last week EA dropped a fun THOH Episode tie-in into our tapping devices as a way to bring a little THOH XXV to the Halloween Event!  By collecting different articles of clothing for Moe over the weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) you unlocked a brand new costume for Moe, Moog!  Moog is a character from the Clockwork Yellow skit during THOH XXV.

So now that the weekend is over, and THOH has aired in the US let’s see just what happens when Moog enters our Springfields!

SPOILER WARNING- Full Dialogue Walkthrough Below…

For those that don’t want to know to full details…Moe is pretty much the only character required for this.  However, the last part you will need Mr. Burns AND Burns Manor.  So make sure Mr. Burns is free and you’ve reached Level 25 and built Burns Manor.

Goodbye Phase 1, Hello Phase 2: Ray Guns Are Here!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The switch has happened…Probes are gone & Ray Guns 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.

2014-10-20 08.02.50

Squish Regillians, stop/send Grem-Aliens, shoot down UFOs & earn Treat Bags to earn enough Ray Guns to earn all the Ray Gun Prizes!

Kang will kick off Phase 2 with a 24hr quest.  So make sure he’s free.  Homer is not needed just yet, so if you have him on the Donut Torture Device you’re ok :)

Probe Reminder…New Phase Starts Soon!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a little reminder that in just about 5 hrs from now (0800GMT) the Probes will switch to Ray Guns.  And any Probe prizes you have yet to win will lock up and you will no longer be able to earn probes to win them.

So….if you’re not quite at the Donut Torture device, in the next few hours try to wrap up your squishing and see if you can earn those extra Probes to get there!

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

Candy Time!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Candy time is back!   For a this weekend (it looks like this ends Monday 10/20 at 0800GMT) you can purchase Candy (and nails) from the store!  Of course to do so you’ll have to spend donuts, but they’re actually priced fairly well.  (At least in my opinion anyway…)

Here’s what you can get:

Candy

It looks like all the prizes from the Gold and Silver Treat bags can be purchased…which is great if you’re struggling to collect Pumpkins or Chocolates!  :)

Remember…this will disappear on 10/20 at 0800GMT (4 am EDT)…however it looks like it will be reappearing each weekend…like the Elixir.

What do YOU think of the candy for sale?  Have you purchased any?  What items are you currently saving to craft?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

Glitch Report: Grem-Alien Fix!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just popping in to quickly let you know the Grem-Alien glitch has been fixed! You’ll now properly earn probes for leaving Grem-Aliens in your neighbors towns!

So what are you waiting for?!  Go out and send those Grem-Aliens to invade your neighbors towns and bring you back Probes!  Remember…you’ll earn 2 probes each if your neighbor squishes them before 4hrs, if they last the full 4 hrs you’ll earn 4 Probes (and your neighbor will earn none)!  So get to squishing!

More info on Grem-Aliens can be found here

Are YOU happy the glitch is fixed?  Will you now send them to attack your neighbors towns?  Or are you waiting till the Ray Guns are released?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!
