Hey Howdy Hey Alien Squishing Tappers!
It’s Halloween time in Springfield! A dark haze has over taken the streets of Springfield and Aliens are on the attack! By now we’re all busy squishing and stopping those aliens dead in their tracks….and earning as many probes as we can!
With this event EA is trying something new (for them) and releasing items/prizes in phases. Two prizes each phase, three phases, for a total of 6 prizes all together. For the first phase, which lasts 12 days and ends 10/20, you can win 2 prizes by collecting Probes. The second (and final) major prize awarded at 8,050Probes is the Donut Torture Device.
Let’s take a closed look at this lean, mean donut machine…and just what it will do in YOUR Springfield…
WARNING Mild Dialogue Spoilers Ahead
Once you’ve collected 8,050 Probes the Donut Torture Device will automatically be awarded to you and you’ll see this popup:
Much like Friendship Prizes, if you’re visiting a neighbor when you hit the 8,050 Probe mark this message will still popup and your device will be waiting for you in your inventory once you get back to your Springfield.
The Donut Torture Device will be placed in your inventory, so you’ll have to go into your inventory to retrieve it. Just tap on the “use” icon to place it in your Springfield.
Winning the Donut Torture Device will trigger some fun dialogue between Homer and Devil Flanders will popup (and no you don’t need Devil Flanders to see it). Homer will kick things off…so make sure he’s free once you’ve won it.
Homer: Oh, I can’t believe I ate everyone’s candy! I don’t think I’ve ever said this, but I cannot eat another bite.
Devil Flanders: We-hell. I’ve waited many, many years to hear that. Let’s try that ironic donut punishment one more time!
Place the Donut Torture Device
Make Homer Suffer Ironic Punishment– 36hrs, Earns $750, 200xp
Devil Flanders: I don’t understand it! You were full, this should be painful. How are you doing this?
Homer: Easy. Donuts have holes. Holes are negative space. Eat enough holes and it cancels out everything you’ve eaten.
Devil Flanders: That doesn’t make sense!
Homer: Does to me.
Devil Flanders: Even his body is too stupid to follow the rules of physics.
Now…Homer will actually USE this and it has an AWESOME animation. For those that can’t wait here’s a sneak peak (For those that don’t want to know…avert your eyes!):
So here’s the deal with the Donut Torture Device:
-Interactive decoration for your Springfield (Homer will actually use it!)
-If you don’t unlock it in the probe box you’ll have a chance to craft after the timer runs out.
-Unlocks a permanent (at least for Halloween) task for Homer: Suffer Ironic Punishment– 36hrs, Earns $750, 200xp
-No sound associated with it
-Can be placed anywhere in Springfield
-No bonus associated with it
-Improves Obedience on the Conform-O-Meter
So that about covers all the details on this yummy device!
