Hey there Hoppereenos. Jumpin on in here to give some clarification and direction for the game. So let’s hop right on in to the neighbor visits.
Following is a breakdown of the goings on in your neighbors. First and foremost, if you or your neighbor have NOT completely upgraded and unlocked Halloween, you neighbor visits will be limited until you BOTH do. (This means getting past Free Hugs Part 4, AFTER the Make A Thing, and AFTER you build the “weapon” to get ability to squish aliens and have probes count.
I will be touching base on information for when you go to a neighbors only here. Things going on in your own town with the aliens and probes will be in a separate post.
Now on with the show…
HOW MAY PROBES CAN YOU GET FROM NEIGHBORS:
As in previous events, you are limited on just how many times you can get the event item in a 24 hour period. For this event, it is a total of 90 actions per 24hrs and 1 Probe per action. This means if your 24 hour clock has reset, the first 90 taps you make will count towards these actions so make them count. Go for the Rigellian Aliens first. If you waste them on tapping buildings, you lose that many more Probes. (If you buy the Rigellian Hunting License, you will get TWO Probes for each action instead of one. Doubling your collection during the 90 taps.)
HOW DO I KNOW HOW MANY ACTIONS I HAVE LEFT:
If you go to your main neighbor screen (Bart and Milhouse) you will see icons on the lower left side with the Halloween items. Tap on the lil italic “i” icon and it will tell you how many actions you have left for that day.
WHAT ABOUT UFO’S IN NEIGHBORS:
There is a 25% chance you will see a Rigellian UFO in a neighbors town when you visit. In order to shoot it down, you will need to have acquired ammo from the Candy Bags. (As well as the Ray Gun.)
If you see the Rigellian UFO in a neighbors town and have ammo, just tap on the Rigellian UFO and it will blow up and award you prizes. The prizes will vary from treat bags to donuts.
This UFO is not to be confused with KODOS’ UFO that you need to buy the Ray Gun to shoot down and only in YOUR town will it work. (Cletus triggers that dialog, more later.)
WHY CAN’T I TAP ON THE FAST ALIENS:
There are two separate types of aliens in your town and the neighbors towns. The first are the hundreds of lil ones that spawn right away. These are the Rigellian ones that you can get only 90 actions a day from. They look like mini lil Kang and Kodos Aliens.
Now these lil guys will also be in Krustyland, but more for only looks and getting you tickets (just like the Park Visitors did, only they took their place). So no squishing the Krustyland Rigellians in your neighbors towns.
The second type of Alien you will see speeds REALLY FAST through the town on all fours instead of tentacles, has a tail, and the head that is similar to Mr. Burns bald head. These only appear after a GremAlien egg is dropped in the town. You can ONLY tap these in your own town if you see them and NOT neighbors. More detailed info on the GremAliens and the eggs they hatch from in a later post.
WHAT ARE THE LEADERBOARDS ALL ABOUT:
Basically they are a fun way to compete for the top spot with your neighbors on GremAlien destruction.I will touch more on this in a separate post. Stay tuned.
Hope this helps you out a bit to understand more what is going on in this event. Again, a few items require more attention so will come with more details in a separate post.
How are you doing so far on the neighbor taps? Have you shot down any UFO’s yet? If so, how many? Are you liking the event so far? Let us know in the comments below.
