Hey howdy hey GOO Collectors!
Back with the next two prizes in the Personal Prize collection, you can read about the Ancient Burial Ground & Pumpkin house here, the Vac-U-Bot here, Zombie here & Ultrahouse & Victorian UFO here. The next two prizes are achieved at the 5,200 GOO (Snorky) collection mark and the 6,500 GOO (Twirl ‘n’ Hurl) collection mark.
First up…Wookiee’s favorite…King Snorky:
Once you reach 5,200 GOO in your town Snorky will automatically unlock and be placed in your town.
Snorky is a non-playable character BUT when first dropped in your town you will see an exclamation mark over him. There is a small quest that comes with Snorky BUT the tasks are mostly associated with Homer and Bart. Here’s the dialogue:
King Snorky Pt. 1
After tapping on Snorky
Homer: King Snorky! The dolphin overlord who conquered Springfield and made us all move to the sea! My toes are still wrinkly from the sea water.
Snorky: A fate you richly deserved for humiliating me at Marine World…making me play with a beach ball like a common seal. Although I did like the belly scratching. Now scratch my belly!
Tap Snorky to “scratch” his belly.
Homer: Stupid King Snorky. My fingernails are all scratched out.
Bart: Maybe we can get rid of him if we bribe him with a can of tuna fish.
Homer: Tuna, eh? The irresistible drug for jerks of the sea. To the Kwik-E-Mart!
Apu: We sell delicious “Horse of the Sea” brand tuna fish. Which would you prefer, solid or chunky style?
Homer: Um…well.. I guess… um..
Make Homer Agonize over which style of Tuna to Buy- 12hrs (sorry no GOO earned)
Apu: Thank you, choose again!
25 GOO Collected for quest task completion
King Snorky Pt.2
After tapping Homer
Homer: Oh cruel fish, we bring you an offering of tuna, so you will leave our town in peace. I got chunky and solid, your choice.
Snorky: Tuna fish! Do you know how many dolphins have been trapped in tuna nets? Is… is that a chunk of blowhole?!
Homer: Take it easy. You can eat around the blowhole.
Snorky: Now I’m really mad. Stand still while I insult you in dolphin! Squeak, pop, pop, squeak…
Homer: Man, who knew there were so many words for “fat” in dolphin.
Make Homer Cry after being Insulted by a Sea Mammal– 4hrs (sorry no GOO earned)
25 GOO Collected for quest task completion
King Snorky Pt. 3
After tapping Home
Homer: Oh King Snorky, I’ve got another present for you.
Snorky: A beach ball! The symbol of my imprisonment at Marine World! How dare you?
Homer: Come on widdle dolphin. Who wants a pretty ball? Who wants a pretty ball?
Snorky: If you think I’m going to…I….um….I want that ball! Let me play with that ball!
Homer: That ought to keep old Herring Head busy for a while.
Bart: Nice going, dad. You’re a real pop, squeak, pop-pop squeak genius.
Homer: Why you little! How dare you insult me in dolphin!
Reach level 12 and Place Bart’s Treehouse
Make Homer Strangle Bart at Home- 8hrs
Make Bart Get Strangled at Home- 8hrs
25 GOO earned for Quest Completion
And with that you’ve completed the King Snorky quest!
While Snorky is a non-playable character, he’s a FREE non-playable character. So while it stinks he’ll just hop around your town…at least you didn’t pay donuts for him! Plus if you tap him he’ll do some dolphin tricks 🙂
Now onto the 8th prize….
Twirl ‘n’ Hurl:
At 6,500 GOO you’ll unlock a brand new ride for your Krustyland the Twirl ‘n’ Hurl! (Don’t worry…if you haven’t built Krustyland yet it will stay in your inventory until you do..) The Twirl ‘n’ Hurl will automatically unlock at 6,500 GOO and be stored in your inventory. In order to retrieve it you’ll have to go to Krustyland and pull it from your inventory.
The Twirl ‘n’ Hurl does come with a small questline and in order to activate it you’ll need to have Bart free to go to Krustyland. Here’s the dialogue:
Twirl ‘N’ Hurl
After tapping on Bart…in Krustyland
Bart: Cool! The “Twirl ‘N’ Hurl,” a brand new Krustyland ride. High speed spins, over-the-top loops…Time to give it the Bart barf baptism.
Kang: The juvenile Earthling has fallen for the oldest trick in the book: a trans-neuronic brain enslaver disguised as an amusement park ride. Each loop-de-loop will wrode his will, until he must obey any command I give. Even cleaning my excretion pores, which believe me, I cannot pay people enough to do.
Build the Twirl ‘N’ Hurl (Remove from your inventory)
Make Bart Ride the Twirl ‘N’ Hurl– 16hrs (Sorry no GOO earned)
Krusty: You monster! Set that child free! He still has money to spend here.
Kang: You are too late to stop me. Bart is in my power and will obey my commands.
Krusty: Really? Can you make him buy the crappy souvenirs at my gift shop?
Kang: That’s going to take a lot more rides on the brain enslaver.
Krusty: I got time.
Earn 25 GOO for Quest completion
The Twirl ‘n’ Hurl is a neat ride for Krustyland. Something that mimics the new ride at Springfield in Universal Studios Florida. It also will earn you 120 tickets every 24hrs. A pretty neat free prize from EA!
