Update: A lot of crashing and Bart screens going on. Be patient as everyone’s trying to get on at once. Give it a little time and then try again.
UPDATE BUNNY: In usual fashion, for those still crashing…you are welcome to try the basics, contact EA, but here is also the link in the forums. Let’s light it up. 🙂
And it looks like that got their attention. Lol. Patches coming fast to the games. See if you can play again.
UPDATE BUNNY: When EA is back up after the holidays, I will harass them on why Sideshow You is glitching. For now, enjoy the Holidays. 🙂
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Merry Christmas Eve! (and for some of you Merry Christmas!) Phase 2 of Christmas has hit our Tapping Devices this afternoon. So if you were starting to feel warn down on Present collecting now’s time for something new in Springfield.
First..know that it should auto-start. And your first task involves tasks for Homer (8hrs) and Lisa (1hr)… (also note..Santa does leave town)
So let’s take a look at all the goodies that come along with Phase 2….
UPDATE BUNNY: You will have to go through a few different tasks BEFORE you see all of Phase 2 in your game (similar to Phase 1). You will need to complete the questline to “Project After-Party” Part 3 before you will start to see the majority of prizes, breakdown, bell collection, and neighbor bell taps enabled. So sit tight…this was not meant to launch the second it hit the game. Enjoy the Holiday. 🙂
Ok guys…it’s Christmas Eve. We’re all getting ready to spend the next couple of days with our families. So in this post we’re going to break down the very basic info of the basics of Part 2 of the event. And then we’ll cover it more in depth after Christmas is over…. (on Friday) 🙂
Here’s a quick run down…
The Elves are crazy about Partying and it’s your job to get the out of Springfield. It’ll be a good 12hrs before you get to this stage. But you’ll have to place the Elf Cannon…
Once you place the Cannon that’s when Phase 2 stuff will start for you.
You collect Elves (by tapping on the flying ones) to fire them in the cannon and earn Elf Bells. The bells are the currency in the game (the new presents)
UPDATE BUNNY: For me…the Elf Cannon comes with 3 shots. Each shot will blast up to 9 Elves. So a possible total of 27 Elves shot possible. Then…the Cannon will rest for 4 hrs before you can shoot it again.
Now let’s take a look at the new store items…
This WILL have limited-time items …within limited-time items. However…EA learned it’s lesson from Halloween and the items that are super limited have timers on them!
So here’s what you can get in the store right now…
(note ALL of these are returning from 2012 and 2013)
Part 2 Prizes:
UPDATE BUNNY: In order to Collect Cog Wheels, you will need to earn the Cannon Control Building. It will help.
UPDATE BUNNY: This works similar to the Bunny Zapper at Easter time. Once you earn this, you can tap and drag your finger around the screen to “zap” and bottle the elves. This will make it a LOT easier than tracking them down or trying to find them in hidden spots.
UPDATE BUNNY: As you play through your 5 day streak in the game, the first 4 days will award bells (similar to the presents last round). On the 5th day of a playing streak, you will be able to win Cog Wheels.
Well my friends that’s all the basic details on Christmas for now…now I’m off to spend Christmas Eve with my in-laws! We’ll work through more details on this update after Christmas. For now…enjoy shooting elves!
