Tapped Out Premium Walkthrough: Rex Redux

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well the 4th of July is now over in Springfield, and I hope you guys managed to get everything you wanted from the update!  And now that it’s over it’s time to look at our 3rd, and final, full dialogue walkthrough for the event.  The Redux of Rex Banner!

Rex Banner was the freemium 4th of July Character during the 2013 Event & returned as a premium character (for 90 donuts) during 2014.  The 2014 questline for Rex (and All-American Apu, if you have him) is basically a repeat of the 2013 quesline, with a few dialogue updates.

Rex’s questline started automatically once 4th of July hit, if you had Rex already or it started after you purchased him and the Nighthawk Diner.  We’ve already brought you the Turbo Tappin’ version of this walkthrough, so now it’s time to catch up on what you missed (if you were tapping quickly) or missed out on (if you didn’t make the purchase) with the full dialogue version!

Now, enough stammering from me….let’s find those illegal fireworks with everyone’s favorite hard-nosed cop!

Rex: Citizen’s of Springfield, fear not! No longer will airborne displays of fireworks-related Technicolor splendor haunt your nights!
Lisa: Federal agent Rex Banner!?
Rex: Here to stop the flow of illegal fireworks into Springfield and bring the Bottle Rocket Barons to their knees.
Lisa: Well, that’ll be nice.  They’re kind of a nuisance.
Rex: Nuisance?  You call sporadic incidents of mild to moderate noise pollution a NUISANCE?  They’re the greatest threat to the American way of life since loitering!  And nothing will stop me from ending this scourge!  Unless it is my debilitating addiction to refined sugars!

Rex: What’s so special about the Fourth of June?
Lisa: June 4th was King George III of England’s birthday.  Springfield was the only town in the nation that voted 182 times to return to British rule.  We’ve always been America’s cowards.

Well my Tapping Friends, what did YOU think of Rex’s questline?  Those Tappers with him from 2013, were you a little bummed they basically made you do the same questline again?  What would you have done differently?  Those Tappers who just purchased him this year, what’d you think?  Were you impressed with him?  Or wished you passed?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

  1. This was my first donut spend (only had 100) and I thought it seemed good for a building + character….however mine never went through this plot line! Only the inital Interrogate Flanders and that was it.
    My game has been awful at the moment and I have had to reinstall several times (and it still only lasts between 6-36hrs before becoming unplayable again) so I am wondering if this has to do with the glitch?

    • Have you checked to see what kind of memory availability you have on your device to see if maybe clearing off some unused items will help the speed?

  2. Today in my town A that’s not logged into Facebook I noticed I have neighbors!!! I never spent the donuts to get friends to complete that task they just appeared! Finally I can speed up the tasks faster with the help of my friends! Has anyone else noticed this? Love to play all day! Add me!!! Ailene. 🙂

  3. July 4th is over. I think you should have a look at the Simpsons (show) Facebook page. Something is coming!

    • We know….but keep in mind it’s on the SHOW page (run by Fox), not the EA TSTO page. Speculating is fun, but it could also just be something to do with the show. They post random things like that often 🙂

  4. 90 hard earned donuts for a premium character and building is a good deal.
