A quick note. If you’re on an Android device an update has been released for the phone in the Play Store. Make sure you go in and update your Tapped Out game. No major changes, it looks as though it’s just a big glitch fix. Not one they could do as an in-game update. So be sure to update your App if you’re on Android. Nothing for iPhone users at this time, which tells me it’s fixing a system glitch that’s impacting Android phones only. Anything new happens we’ll definitely let you all know.
There is a growing issue with the Goo counts being off. I am seeing it effecting more and more users. It is now effecting my game too. I am in contact with EA in regards to the issue and will update you on any information that is provided to me.
In the meantime, here is the glitch I am seeing (as well as others). Once you hit your 10,000 Goo mark, you are put into the Spooktacular Bonus round. For every 2000 Goo beyond the 10,000 you collect, you are able to pick from the 3 prize boxes for a chance at 3 free donuts. This is similar to the XP bonus levels. You will know when you hit this as the lil Halloween Candy icon will pop up in your task book icons.
The glitch I am seeing is that the count at the bottom of the screen is just not matching up with the Spooktacular Bonus count. They are off. In some cases quite a lot.
The issue this creates is you are not hitting the Spooktacular Bonus level as you should. As in the pics above, when I should’ve had the chance of a bonus level…the difference in counts made it so I had to keep collecting to get the chance. So far from what I am seeing, you need to be in YOUR town when nearing the 10,000 Goo in order for the icon to pop up and sync properly to the Spooktacular Bonus. If you are not in YOUR town, the icon won’t be activated and therefor all the Goo you are collecting until that point does not sync up to it.
For me, the standard uninstall and reinstall did not work at all. So until I hear a different option or fix/update from EA…STAY IN YOUR OWN TOWN when that Goo gets close to 10,000. Jump back fast if you are in a neighbors so you don’t lose too much Goo before the lil candy icon pops up.
FYI…to clarify…you need to jump back EVERY SINGLE RESET. Every 2000th extra Goo you need to hit at home. It resets to 0 right then, so if in a neighbor’s town…anything after 2000 will not count. So jump back each time. So at 12000, 14000, 16000, etc.
