Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
The Superhero Event is upon us and Springfield has been invaded with Superheros, creeping Criminals & a whole new Comic Book look! In the first Issue of the Superhero Event, you’ll see action (SPOILER Radioactive Man dies..), crime & pie! Lots and lots of pie!
The Event is broken up into 4 Issues, with each Issue containing part of the Story. To help you along with the story line you’ll get at least 3 prizes per Issue. Each prize will help further move you through the story and uncover what comes next! For Issue 1 you’re tasked with collecting Carbon Rods to unlock each prize! The second Issue 1 prize awarded at 7000 Carbon Rods is Burns State Prison. The fanciest Prison in all of Springfield!
So let’s take a closer look at this maximum security prison and just how it can help you earn more Currency throughout the Event!
WARNING Mild Dialogue Spoilers Below…
Once you’ve collected 7,000 Carbon Rods you’ll automatically be awarded the Burns State Prison and you’ll see this message popup:
Once you’ve won it, it will automatically be placed in your inventory. So remember, you’ll have to go into your inventory to retrieve it and place it in your Springfield.
Once you’ve unlocked the Burns State Prison some dialogue will start up immediately between Mr. Burns & Mayor Quimby, it’ll further explain the Prison:
Montgomery Burns State Prison Pt. 1
Mr. Burns: Mayor Quimby, I understand you’re suffering a crime wave. Perhaps I could offer up a new incarcer-arium,,,
Quimby: But we already have a prison in Springfield.
Mr. Burns: Not an architectural wonder like the Frank Gehry Springfield Music Center! All I did was remove orchestra seating to make it the most wretched hellhole on Earth!
Quimby: Out with the old prison, in with the new!
Place the Burns State Prison- 6sec build…remember you’ll find it in your inventory.
Quimby: Burns, your prison released a dangerous felon back onto the strerts of our fair city!
Mr. Burns: He served two hours for three stabbings. That’s 40 minutes per plunge. I can’t ask more of a man.
Quimby: He was given a life sentence!
Mr. Burns: The deal was that I only incarcerate felons, not namby-pamby them for life! And when this brute is captured again, I look forward to collecting yet another incarceration fee! I adore the revolving door prison system!
Quimby: Burns, I hate that you came up with this idea and I didn’t!
Montgomery Burns State Prison Pt. 1
Fallout Boy starts
Fallout Boy: Holy Hangman’s noose! Someone needs to stop those felons!
Pieman: There are too many targets for one hurling Pie Man to hit!
Fallout Boy: We’re going to need every superhero, sub-superhero, slight and insignificant hero to help save Springfield!
Pieman: Since Santa’s Little Helper is sleeping on my couch, I’ll help.
Send a Super Hero to Attack a Felon- x1
Fallout Boy: Felons are tougher than I thought. Radioactive Man always made it look so easy.
Montgomery Burns State Prison Pt. 3
Defeat Felons- x3. Remember Felons will Spawn from the Prison every 8hrs. You’ll see 1 appear every 8hrs.
Here’s the deal
Once you’ve unlocked the Prison, you’ll be able to send characters to attack the Felon. You can send Spider Pig, Fallout Boy, Pie Man and Fruit Batman to attack. This takes 4hrs per attack and you can only send 1 character at a time to attack. (Note: Spider Pig will take 3hrs to complete it…perk of buying a premium character. Fruit Batman will also take 3hrs to complete. Remember he’s currently not in the game, but he was released back in 2013 as part of an episode tie-in).
It’ll take approx 3 hits (at least for the first one) to defeat the felon. So you’ll have to send a character to attack for 4hrs each time. Again, you can only send 1 character at a time. This will pay out Carbon Rods as the reward (if you’re still on issue 1. It will pay Pie Bombs when you’re on issue 2 & Freeze Rays when you’re on issue 3) .
Wait, So What Am I Doing with Felons?
Basically you’ll send Superhero Characters to attack the Felons, each attack and defeat earns more event currency. Great way to boost your event currency!
Which Superheros Can I Send? Can I Send More Than One To Attack a Felon At Once?
Right now, as of Issue 1, you can only send Pie Man, Fallout Boy & Spider Pig. You can also send Fruit Batman, if you currently have him from a previous event. However, it looks like (at some point) you’ll also be able to send Clownface, The Collector & Bartman to defeat them as well.
Be patient with the other Superheros to use…it’ll be a little bit before they can be used to defeat the Felons. For now you can only send Pie Man, Fallout Boy & Spider Pig.
Currently you can only send 1 Superhero at a time to attack a specific Felon. However, if you have 2 Felons in your town you can send 2 Superheros to attack…1 to attack each Felon.
How Often Do the Felons Spawn? Where Do They Spawn From?
They Spawn 1/8hrs. And they’ll Spawn from Burns State Prison. You will need to tap on the Prison when a Felon is ready to release it into your town…they will not automatically roam your streets. Just like you collect from buildings, you need to tap the Prison, when ready, to release the Felon.
What’s the Max Amount of Felons I Can Have In My Town At Once?
6 is the current max you can have in your town at once.
Tap on the Felon to bring up his health meter and see which characters you can send to attack.
He’ll start with 3 hearts. Each time you attack you’ll clear a heart. The Felon will get weaker and you’ll get more Carbon Rods (or event currency):
Until finally his Meter hits 0 and he falls to the ground and disappears.
Alternatively you can also Tap on the Felon Icon in the top right corner of your screen. This will take you right to any Felons in your town & if they’re not currently under attack it will bring up their health meter. If they are under attack it’ll show you how much time is left on that attack.
How Many Carbon Rods (or other Event Currency) Do I Earn For Each defeat?)
With 3 hearts left you’ll earn 25 Carbon Rods
With 2 hearts left you’ll earn 75 Carbon Rods
With 1 heart left you’ll earn 150 Carbon Rods
I’ve Finished All of the Carbon Prizes, Should I Save Felons for the Next Round to Get a Head Start on Pie Bombs?
It’s not a bad idea. But remember…they spawn every 8hrs & you can get free donuts for every 3,000 Carbon Rods you earn after you get Clown Face. So honestly I think you’re better off going for free donuts, at least until 8hrs before Issue 2 hits.
Is There Anything Else The Prison Does?
The Burns State Prison also unlocks a new 16hr task for Fat Tony, Legs & Louie…Run Smuggling Operation. They’ll complete the task at the State Prison, so it will be used.
So that my friends is the full breakdown of the Burns State Prison & just how to attack Felons in your Springfield!
