  11. Hey guys, I love your site. I’ve been been playing TSTO since mid December and I’m having the same issue with Gulp ‘n’ Blow not starting. My XP puts me on level 28 but I’m not nearly that far along in quests. I’ve built the church, power plant, Android’s Dungeon, Library, Java Server, Moe’s, Springfield Downs and Luigi’s. I’m currently building Jake’s Unisex Hair Palace, Squidport and Springfield Penitentiary but for some reason, Gulp ‘n’ Blow is still locked. I remember starting the Heavy User quests, but then got the Mr Plow quests. I’ve completed all of the Mr Plow quests except the one where he attends church but it’s not even listed within my Mr Plow tasks.
    Do you have any ideas for me? I’m not sure what to do. Homer doesn’t have any open tasks and I’ve tried sending him to Krusty’s multiple times a day. I’ve even tried storing Krusty Burger a few times to get it going. All was for naught. Cheers, Lee

    • Sorry you’re having such issues getting Gulp n’ Blow to start. Homer should have eaten a Krusty Burger 2 times (Heavy User Quest) then he’ll prompt Gulp n’ Blow. If it’s not starting for you, check Homer’s main skin (not Mr. Plow) to make sure nothing is highlighted in yellow on his task list. This would show he has a pending task that may not appear (For whatever reason) in your task book. If not, it will eventually appear. It’s not critical to the game proceeding, and sometimes when you’re so far ahead of game play in XP it causes a lag in quests starting up. I know that’s not the answer you were hoping for, but TSTO (like a small child) can be very fussy at times. So just keep playing the quests as the appear and eventually Gulp n’ Blow will appear. I remember when I started Tapping it took FOREVER for me to get the Java Server build task to start up. It was just a lag in the game because my XP was so far ahead of the game play.

      • Thanks for the advice. I think I’ll make a game of it to see if I can get to level 38 before it prompts the build. 🙂

  12. Hi, I know was probably ages ago for you guys but I’m getting really frustrated with the krusty burger heavy user quest – it won’t start for me. My xp level is 15 and I have built willys shack, barts tree house and am currently building the library. I have no idea why homer is not prompting for this quest. I have left homer free all morning to see if he gets the ! As reading the dialogue for the quest he needs to get there before 10.29 but nothing! Am wondering if it’s because snow plow homer has a quest in the task bar but I can’t complete it as I don’t have the church… any thoughts?

    • The Mr. Plow quest shouldn’t be impacting it. Has Krusty already inflated his own importance? And you’re just having issues getting Homer to eat at Krusty Burger? Just check in your build menu first to make sure the Gulp n’ Blow is not unlocked yet (if the task isn’t triggering it shouldn’t be unlocked). If it is locked try storing your Krusty Burger (it will also store Krusty) then replace it. Sometimes that tricks the next task into happening. However, there are also just times in the game where tasks take a little while to come up you can check out this post for some other tips and tricks when the next task won’t appear. Let us know if it helps! 🙂

      • Thanks, yes the gulp n blow is still locked and homer hasn’t been sent to krusty burger. I really can’t remember if krusty has inflated his importance, but the more I think about it the more I think maybe not. Will try storing my krusty burgers in a few hours, will let you know thanks!

      • For those with this problem it was the Mr plow task that stopped the krusty burger heavy user quest starting. I finally built the church and finished the Mr plow quests, then had to get through the drink at moes as I had also built that whilst waiting and lo and behold the heavy user quest started this morning!

  13. Yes I think they may have as I really want to get free donuts and hope that there is someway of getting them. I know what you mean about XP levels and Game Play level. The way I mean cheats is ways to get free things. Your website has been the most helpful of all the ones that I have tried. Thank you TSTO and your amazing blogs.

    • We here at Addicts really do not dive into the realm of “cheats”. We prefer to keep our methods in standards with EA. We do however offer any and all information we can find to locate and utilize the EA hidden easter eggs they place all over the game to acquire more prizes and donuts as they come available.

      A good example of this, Once you hit the Spooktacular Bonus rounds after reaching the 10,000 Goo(every extra 2000 after)…try this method (it may not work for all).

      As the 3 boxes appear for your selection, select and hold the center box. Keep holding and holding as you see the lights circulate around the boxes for a minute. Let go. For me, it has helped me to acquire 3 donuts in the center square each and every time. I’m on like the 10th time doing this. 🙂

  14. Very very helpful. Am currently on Level 19 but still have a quest from Level 13 to build the Orange House. Amazing. I would like to ask if the cheat for kwik e Mart and Springfield downs cause it happens for most people but not me could you explore!!!!!

    • If you are referring to the free donut cheat with those two buildings, I had heard about it in March, but am certain EA closed that loophole.

    • I am glad we are able to help you out with your tapping. It is our pleasure. 🙂

      There is a difference between the XP level and the Game Play levels in the game. XP levels just show you how much XP you have collected and the items you have unlocked for purchase. Game Play level more refers to the amount of tasks you have completed. It is very common for a lot of players to be several levels ahead on the XP level and behind on the Game Play. Sometimes earning XP goes faster than sending each character to finish the tasks. As far as any “cheats”, I am not sure I am aware of what you are asking. Can you please be more specific? I can tell you the information we do provide is only for playing the game properly, as EA intended.
