Tapped Out Halloween Walkthrough: The Ghost in the Machine-based App Parts 5-11

Hey howdy hey Ghostbusters!

How’s everyone doing on their GOO collections?  By now you should be nearing 1,000 GOO canisters and have already collected your first 2 free prizes.  If you haven’t quite reached that level, don’t panic!  You still have plenty of time!

There’s so much going on in this new update it’s almost hard to remember there’s an actual main quest line going on as well!  In this part of the questline, and going forward, I’ve tried to spell out all of the GOO earning opportunities for you with counts.  This should help you realize how much GOO you will earn just for completing the main quest.

When we last left off on the main quest Homer had just brought Maude Flanders back from the dead and boy was she angry!   Hard to be happy when Homer kills you with a T-Shirt Gun!  Anyway…we pick the walkthrough back up with Maude explaining to Homer why she’s here….

The Ghost in the Machine-based App Pt. 5
After tapping Maude (You’ll need to make sure Homer and Ned are free as well…)

It’s so nice to see you, Maude.  You don’t look a minute older than the day Homer killed you.
Maude: That’s how it works.  Now hear me!  Three ghosts are angry at Homer. I am the first.  We raised an army of the dead to haunt Springfield until Homer makes each one of us a sacrifice.
Bart: What, like giving up beer for 15 minutes? ‘Cause that he can’t do.
Maude: I wish to possess Homer’s body and spend one more day with my beloved Ned!
Homer: Okay, but no taking my possessed body past first base.

The Ghost in the Machine-based App Pt. 8
After tapping on Apu

Apu: These ghosts are driving me crazy.  They look into the future and tell everyone tomorrow’s winning scratcher numbers. I’m going to reincarnate them as birds.  Let’s see what it sounds like when doves cry!
Ned: I’m going to sprinkle holy water on them
Frink (if you have him): I’m going to argue them away by pointing out that according to science they can’t exist.

Gypsy: I feel the presence of other, older spirits who are angry at this town, I sense unspeakable horror… and a tent.
Lisa: Sounds like my last Girl Scout camping trip.  Just kidding.  Girl Scouts are great.  Please don’t cut off my cookies.  Anyway, my only clue is an old tent.  Time to do some research in back issues of our town’s longest continuously published newspaper:  The Springfield Elementary Daily 4th Gradian.

  1. Won’t let me build the Gilded Truffle and I am Lvl 16?WTH

    • There is a difference between XP levels and game play levels. In other words, your XP could have you at level 20…but your game play…you may only have finished walkthroughs to level 15. Double check the game walkthroughs and see what else you need to complete to unlock it.

  2. Hmm, mine seems to have taken a different path. I just finished part 6 and it then took me into a quest to have Homer be the strongman for 12 hours in a quest called Impress Rubes with his Strength.

    • That’s the Strongman Homer questline. You can avoid that questline if you tap on Homer and switch him from his Strongman costume back to his regular white and blue outfit.

  3. For part 8, you wrote Frink (if you have him), which I assume means I can complete the task/quest without having to purchase Frink. Is that correct? Thanks.

    • Yes, if you don’t have Frink it won’t come up as a requirement. And you can move on with just Flanders and Apu. But if you have Frink you must send him on the task in order to complete that part of the quest.

  4. Im on part 8, and Apu is currently on day 1 of the 7 day task 🙁 will there be enough time to complete the rest after he has finished!?

  5. My part 6 didnt automatically start? Instead i had a totally different quest asking homer to eat the pumpkin house?

  6. Add sicardo66 I’m currently on part 11. I’ve always been keeping up with my building quests but since the Halloween update I unlocked Tonys compound, learning Anex, Springfield hospital and el chemistri and only have enough cash for one currently 🙁
