The 3rd GOO Prize- Vac-U-Bot

Hey Howdy Hey Ghostbusters!

Once you reach 1,250 GOO canisters you unlock the 3rd free personal prize in the TSTO Halloween Event…the Vac-U-Bot (for info about the first two prizes check here).  Unlike the first two items, the Vac-U-Bot is not a building or decoration.  Instead it’s a tool to help you catch more ghosts!

Once you reach 1,250 GOO canisters dialogue will auto-start:

Frink: Congratulations!  You’ve just acquired the latest in ghost disposal technology from Frink Removal Incorporated, of FRINC.
Homer: It looks like one of those little robots that vacuums up dirt, but it’s completely and utterly different.  It’s a little robot that vacuums up ghosts.  Okay, let’s such soul.  Where does it plug in?
Frink: It doesn’t!  In a major convenience, it runs for fifteen minutes at a time on two pounds of uranium.
Homer: Ooh, that’s lucky.  I have a couple uranium rods in my pocket.  I put them there to keep my genitals warm.

Now, to activate your Vac-U-Bot you have to tap the ghost icon in the top right corner of your screen.  That will create a drop down and the second item will be your Vac-U-Bot.  Simply tap on it and follow the on screen instructions.

You tap the scree and keep your finger down and slide it around the screen.  It will create a vacuum and suck up any ghosts it sees!  Unfortunately, I can’t take a screenshot of the vacuum at work because I need to keep a finger on the screen at all times in order to make the vacuum work.  But take my word for it, it’s pretty neat!

Hope you enjoy your new free ghost hunting tool!

  1. So how does the vacubot work. I followed instructions but nothing seems to happen

    • I’m having the same problem.

    • I finally figured it out. At the top right corner of the screen where the ghost is, click there to make the vacuum icon stay at the top. Now whenever you see a ghost hold your finger on the screen near it and the vacuum will activate and the ghost will get sucked up.

  2. Are people aware that when you get prize 5, the Victorian UFO, you also get Kang? Possibly worth a post – I haven’t unlocked the ray gun yet in the quest line, but if it costs donuts, people might be spending them for nothing (a la the Ancient Burial Ground)

    • Yup that’s on tap for today…trying to cover 2 prizes a day so today will be Victorian UFO and the Ultrahouse 🙂

      • Coolio 🙂 I am loving this site, by the way – only discovered it as part of my Halloween googling because I was frustrated my usual sites didn’t seem to have much info. You guys are doing an amazing job covering everything!

  3. Why can’t Ralph go trick or treating? He seems to be the only kid not doing so…
