Update 3/24 10:30 am: A lot of questions about what happens to the statue after you’ve defeated it. It does remain in your Springfield..and you’ve got some options with it. I’ve updated the post below with more details (right by the images for each level)….
Hey Howdy Hey Super Tappers!
Well it’s finally that time…Issue 4 is live!
The update should have downloaded for you yesterday afternoon..if it did this should start right up for you. However, if you didn’t download the latest update (in game nothing in the store) the files will have to download for you before Issue 4 can start up.
So now that Issue 4 is here let’s sort through the speculation and get to what’s in this Issue!
Fallout Boy will get things started (Should auto-start) and require you to build the Radioactive Man Statue. It’ll cost you $1,000 and takes 4hrs to build…
Back with more details in a bit More details below the fold
First thing’s first…the only new item you’ll find in your store initially is the statue.
After you’ve built this some more dialogue from Fallout Boy will popup…your screen will shake, dialgoue, more shaking, dialogue (it’s actually pretty cool). And then…..your Radioactive Man statue will start to glow!
At this point the “Boss Fight” begins! You’ll have to send Heroes to attack! BUT it’s pretty cool cause there’s now a TON of heroes you can send, not just the ones that have been active throughout this event. Here’s a list of who you can send to attack (and your first task is to attack, 5 times):
Ice Princess Martin- 4hrs to complete
Bartman- 3hrs to Complete
The Collector- 4hrs to Complete
Fallout Boy- 4hrs to Complete
Pieman- 4hrs to Complete
Clownface- 4hrs to Complete
Fruit-Bat-Man- 3hrs to Complete
Plopper- 3hrs to Complete
Moog Moe- 4hrs to Complete
Sidekick Milhouse- 3hrs to Complete
Stupid Sexy Flanders- 3hrs to Complete
Once they’re there to attack the Statue will become animated. It’s pretty cool actually his hand will come down and his head will turn to the side. Also, certain characters will state on the statue area and preform their attack animation..
Note: Sidekick Milhouse is back! You can purchase him in the store for 35 donuts…which means for those that already have him he’s now a premium character with premium payouts!
Criminals are back! You’ll see ALL three varieties of Criminals walking around your town. This time however they will not popout any items. Tapping and clearing them is part of defeating the boss. So I STRONGLY suggest you wait until the questline tells you to pop them to do so.
Note: You won’t see the Criminals until the questline dictates that you tap them. So if you don’t see them right away don’t freak out. They won’t show until Fallout Boy tells you to tap them.
So now what’s next?
Well there are 5 battles with the statue you must complete in order to get all of the prizes. (we’ll get to the prizes in a minute)
You’ll have to send a number of Heroes to attack the statue in order to defeat it each time. In addition you’ll have a variety of tasks to do as well….
Update 3/24 10:30am EDT:
Note: Something I completely missed at 4am…once you’ve completely defeated the “Boss” the statue will remain in Springfield looking like it does under the completed list. HOWEVER…if you tap on the statue it’ll show you a toggle screen, where you can choose which version of the statue you’d like to display in your town. You can go with the original…non-glowing version (you know the one you purchased in the store)..or any of the glowing versions that were shown while you were defeating them (see list above for images). So you can choose which statue version you’d like in Springfield…
Once you’ve completely destroyed the Statue this video will play…WARNING it contains a Spoiler…
This time prizes are a little different to earn. You’ll earn them when you defeat the statue. Each prize takes a couple more defeats. Here’s the breakdown:
And that my friends is it! The complete details (at least for now) of Issue 4…the Final Battle!
REMEMBER…Event Ends March 31st.
