Hey there Hoppereenos. Jumpin on in here with the breakdown of those fun lil trick or treat bags you send the lil kids out to collect for you. What goodies are inside? Any surprises? Keep on reading to find out.
So you send one of the many kids from Springfield out to get you a bag full of goodies, now what? Well the first thing you do is head on over to the Make-A-Thing shop and tap on it.
There is also a shortcut and notification on your main screen for this in the top right corner of your game. If you see an ! there, it means you have Treat Bags waiting to be opened. Tapping on the icon will immediate pop up the Craft Items screen for you.
Inside you will find a pop up list of items that will show you many items. Up top will be the total amount of Treat Bags that your kids have picked up. (If you have some you have not yet opened, they also will “wiggle” to get your attention. The items below will also prompt you to open the bags that you have not yet.)
In the main area you will see the many items you can currently craft. If you have collected enough items to create something the area will be highlighted in green and the icon “CRAFT NOW” will be ready to tap. Make sure you actually want this item, because once you tap “CRAFT NOW” all those items it required will be deducted from your total and taken away from being able to use on a separate item. NOTE: IF YOU USE DONUTS TO SPEED UP THE PRIZE, ALL YOUR ITEMS WILL BE USED FOR IT ALSO.
At the bottom will be the item count area. This is where you can see what goodies you have collected so far and have left remaining to use to craft objects in the main area. Again, if you “CRAFT” an item, the amounts it required to make it will be deducted from these totals. The goodies are like money, once it is used it is gone.
Once you tap on one of the bags at the top, it will open and collect the items for you. The ingredients will add to your collection counts below. The “random prizes” will add to the locations they would normally show. Like Donuts to Donuts Count, Probes to Probe Count, and Items to Inventory Storage Box.
WHAT IS INSIDE THE TREAT BAGS?
There are 3 separate treat bags you can get from the kids, quests, shooting down the Rigellian UFO in your neighbors, and from squishing Rigellian Aliens. Here is the break down for each one.
WHAT ITEMS CAN YOU “CRAFT”?
Here are the items you can “CRAFT” at Make-A-Things. Keep in mind, many of these you need to complete quests, tasks, or other things to unlock the items first. Once unlocked, you can get the option to craft it. (Some will not unlock until the 2nd or 3rd cycle of prizes for you to be able to craft them if you do not win them in alotted time. So prize from cycle one won’t be available til cycle 2 to craft. This is great as it means you get a second chance at prizes.)
Several of the basic items you can make again and again, however the cost will go up each time of needed items. (There will be a plus sign next to the item that will increase.)
WHAT ABOUT THE PUMPKIN HOUSE AND SPOOKY HOUSE?
Once you have completed the tasks and unlocked ability to craft the Grand Pumpkin and Hugo, you will see the 2 houses linked. One to each one of them. Once you collect and create the The Grand Pumpkin (and complete the dialog for creating it), you will get the chance to create more of the Pumpkin Houses. Once you complete the Creation of Hugo (and part 5 of his quest), you will get the chance to create more Spooky Houses. Here is a basic idea of what it will take, but keep in mind…each additional build will require more and more candy items.
|CRAFT Item||Chocolate Bar||Gummy Bear||Pumpkin||Broken Fence||Rotten Egg||Candy Corn|
WHAT ABOUT THE WEAPON BOARD W/NAIL?
The Weapon itself will continue to be upgradeable as you earn nails throughout the event. Each level will require more and more nails. So keep collecting them. Now I am sure you are wondering just what this does when you upgrade. It essentially widens the “Squish Zone” radius. So if you have multiple lil Rigellian Aliens close by, instead of squishing one you will get more than one. Each upgrade adds a bigger and bigger space of attack for you. Basically upgrading your Weapon is a good idea.
So there you have it. A lot of really cool items intertwined into the event that allow YOU to decide what prizes and decorations YOU want in your town. What do you think of all this? Have you already crafted a lot of prizes? Are you having fun in the event so far? Any Trick or Treating tips you’d like to share with your fellow readers? Let us know below. 😉
