Superheros Issue 2 Now Unlocked!

Hey Howdy Hey Super Tappers!

Issue 2 is now unlocked in the Superhero Saga!


There’s no need to download any updates..this will autostart for you IF you’ve completed Issue 1.  If you haven’t completed Issue 1 you can continue to play as you were, until you’ve finished collecting all the prizes for Issue 1.

Also note, Krusty needs to be free for the first part.

More details below the fold…
WARNING: Mild Spoilers Ahead

If you’ve completed Issue 1 and are ready for Issue 2, Clownface will get things started for you.


If you have not completed Issue 1 yet…don’t worry, just keep playing.  Once you’ve unlocked all the Issue 1 prizes you’ll move onto issue 2.

Note: Once Issue 2 starts you’ll unlock the rest of Clownface’s tasks.  Including a 4hr task to earn Pie Bombs.

New Currency 

The currency for Issue 2 is now Pie Bombs


Collecting Pie Bombs will help you earn the prizes for Issue 2.

Remember you’ll only change currency IF you’ve completed Issue 1.  If you haven’t completed Issue 1 (ie won Clownface) you’ll be able to continue to collect Carbon Rods & the game will continue as you were originally playing. 

Issue 2 Prizes

Like other events, this one will be released in Phases.  Here are the prizes you can win for Issue 2:

Other Issues

Again, this will be released in phases…4 total phases, 3 prizes per phase.  So there will be a total of 12 prizes all together.  Here are the release days for each phase (so far)

Issue 2- 2/24/15 0800 GMT (3am EST) we’re here now

Issue 3- 3/10/15 0800 GMT (3am EST)

Issue 4- 3/24/15 0800 GMT (3am EST)

The understanding is that all of the other stuff will lock out on the 24th when Phase 4 launches, and the actual event itself will end on the 31st of March.  BUT you’ll have to get everything else in game before the 24th.

Character Tasks

The characters that had Carbon Rod Earning tasks will now have Pie Earning Tasks.  Same task, just now earns pie.  In addition Clownface will now have a Pie Earning task.

Here’s a list of who currently has Event Currency Earning Tasks:

-Pieman (also has Felon Task)
-Fallout Boy (also has Felon Task)
-Fruit Batman (also has Felon Task) *Note: he’s currently not available in the game & was initially released way back in 2013 with an Episode Tie in.  More details on if he’s coming to the game here.  
-Plopper (also has Felon Task)

Once Unlocked…
-The Collector (also has Felon Task)

Dr. Colossus’ tasks, much like Clownface’s were, will be mostly locked until Issue 3 hits.


New Criminals 

Right now there regular Criminal has left our game (if you’re on issue 2) and been replaced by Clown Criminals:


Tapping on the Criminals will give you Pie Bombs (18 pie bombs each now, that’s up 3 from the regular criminals)e and occasionally Arbitrarium (see info here).

The spawn rate on the Criminals is at least 1/ 5 mins and you can have a Max in your town of 30 at one time.

Note: If you have any left over regular Criminals in your town, you can tap on them and they’ll pay out Pie Bombs Now.

Friend Visits 

Here’s what you can do.  You can either Arrest Criminals in their towns (Tapping on them) OR Report on them (tapping on the phones over Buildings).

Phones look like this redphone

For each arrest you make (tapping on Criminals) you’ll earn 3 Pie Bombs.

For every report you make (tapping on the Red Phones) you’ll earn 1 Pie Bomb

You can tap 3 Criminals/town AND 3 Phones per town, for a total of 12 Pie Bombs/neighbor.

Neighbors Town

Remember…90 Actions per day with Criminals.  You can still tap as many phones as you want.

Criminals in Friend’s towns will still look like the original Criminals Did.  They will not have the Clown Wigs

Now…when you return to your Springfield if you see Radioactive Man’s Glowing Signal, if you tap on it right away you’ll get 4 Pie Bombs.  (a gift from your neighbors) Radiactive Man's Signal

Remember this will decline over time…starts at 4 then goes to 3, than 2, than 1. More neighbor details here

Remember: If you buy the Membership Card superiorsquad you’ll earn double Pie Bombs from Criminals in Neighbor’s Towns.

Superior Squad HQ


Same as before…only now your Upgrades will pay out Pie Bombs.  So wherever you are (as long as you’ve completed Issue 1) your payout will convert to Pie Bombs.  And you can continue to upgrade the HQ to get more Pie Bombs, using Arbitrarium.

More details on upgrading the HQ here.



Just like before Felons can be attacked to pay out Pie Bombs now.  Still the same 25, 75, 150 scale as it was before.

More details on Felons can be found here

New Items

Currently no new items have been added to the store.

Donut Bonus 

Once you’ve collected all of the prizes you’ll unlock the Bonus round, until Issue 3 hits.  For every 4,000 Pie Bombs you’ll have the chance to earn 1, 2 or 3 free donuts.


There you have it…the basic information for Issue 2 of the Superhero Event!  As always we’ll break everything down more in-depth in the coming days!  For now enjoy the fun!

  2. Do you have advice on crafting? I have tons of phones, but I’m having a hard time getting capes and handcuffs, (because they are only available through certain actions…I wish friends visits would pay out something other than phones!) so I’m wondering if it’s best to wait until I have enough to craft the Times building before I craft anything else, or if I should complete my task on the task bar and just craft the buildings now. I have enough to craft everything but that building…
    What is your advice? I remember during Halloween I crafted the Human Test Subject first, and then I ended up with a billion of them! (Still love them though cause they look like Fry)
    What did, or are, you guys doing?
    Thanks again!

    • If you do some math, you may find that you’re in better shape than you think for getting at least one of everything (I just did!). Keep in mind, there are still about 17 or 18 days left to collect “ingredients.”

    • I’m having an issue with this too. Plenty of phones but no handcuffs, decent amount of knives but rarely caps and handcuffs.

  3. I received a forced update but when I go to the Play Store it crashes. I have sent a report each time but still no change. Any ideas? I was already way behind but now I’ve lost two more days. This is my B town, but still a bummer…

  4. I was just forced to download a 40MB App Store update, but nothing looks different. Hmmmmm…

  5. I have unlocked clown face but I can’t seem to unlock the first prize on episode 2.. Episode 1 clown face has a padlock on it.. Now I have 23000 pie bombs but can’t unlock the first prize.. Any tips?

  6. Is anyone else having trouble with the touch mechanics since the event started? I know they were a little off before but it just feels worse now. Not sure if it’s my phone or the game but it takes at least three or four taps before I’m able to hit the yellow radioactive signals. I will hit everything around it while tapping directly on it. So strange and annoying. But loving this event so far and plopper is the best premium character I’ve gotten. The way he fights felons is hilarious.

  7. Waaaaaaahhhh!!! Servers are down this AM!
