PLAY TAP BALL
This will unlock during Balls of Glory Part 1. You will want to go into the Event Menu and tap on the “Flag” Tab. This will take you to “Flanders House” where you can pick your Teams to start playing. In the top Right corner you will see “PICK” across from Single Player, tap on it to begin picking your team. YOU WILL NEED FLANDERS HOUSE PLACED TO ACCESS THE PLAY MODE.
Mine started with Pin Pal Apu, Referee Homer, Soccer Lisa, and Workout Ned. Add as many as you want of the Four, then tap “PLAY” to begin. You will want to select the Characters with the HIGHEST Star Rating to Play as they will have a better chance of defeating your Opponents and winning more Awards. The Order you select them will be how they play out during the competition.
You will be then taken to the Grass Field where you will see your “Teams” Ready to Play Tap Ball. Tap on the Flag to start going and play to Win Items for Prizes.
After completing your first “Tap Ball Game”, Balls of Glory Part 2 will begin and you’ll be instructed about letting Players rest between games and using Obesotade to revie them instantly (Revive a Character takes 4hrs). The players will now be grayed out while they rest in the Play Menu.
In the Playing Field of Tap Ball you will see 3 Icons…
Directional Arrows: Tapping on this will swap out your Character in front with the one behind them. You can use this to put a more equal Character against an Opponent. The amount of times you can do this will be noted on the Icon. Winning will help you earn more “Swap” Chances.
Brain & Nerve Tonic: Tapping on this will instantly Level Up ONCE the current Character in Play at the Front. So use it wisely. The amount of times you can do this will be noted on the Icon. Winning will help you earn more along with other items around the game.
Flag: Tapping on this starts the game against the Two Characters in the Center Circle at the Front. Don’t tap on it until you are sure you don’t want to Level them Up or use some Tonic First.
You can Win, Lose, and Tie. There is also a Coin Toss too. It can go anyway.
FANS THAT EARN STUFF
These are the NPC’s that will wander your game during the Event to help you earn MORE items that will help you out with the Currency Items you will need. Attention will be drawn to the “Fans” in the game in Meet My Trophy Life Part 5. You will be able to locate 15 Fans and tap them.
Once in a while they will also drop other items, like +1 Brain & Nerve Tonic
At least ONE every 10 minutes
MAX of 30 in your town at a time
(Possible Bank of 30 MAX)
DAILY TRAINING CHALLENGES
This will not unlock until Meet My Trophy Life Part 6. Meet My Trophy Life Part 7 will ask you to Complete it. These tasks will be similar to those in the past. You will have 24hrs to complete specific Challenges in order to get greater Prizes/Awards. You can finish them AFTER 24hrs are up, but you will lose the 24 Hour Timer Bonus (Like Foam Fingers).
You will know when you Triggered the Daily Training Challenges when you see the Stop Watch Icon pop up in the Top Right Corner of your game. Tapping on it will bring you to the Event Menu where you will now see the Stop Watch as an added Icon and the Daily Challenge Task Requirements.
Task Day#1: Make Apu Sell Tap Ball Merchandise (X2), 2hrs.
Reward: Obesotade 4-Pack.
We will have a LOT more detailed post on this one coming later.
TEAM MANAGEMENT/LEVEL UP CHARACTERS
This will not unlock until Meet My Trophy Life Part 6. You will have the ability to use your Amateur Bucks to Train your Characters for Tap Ball and Level Up their “Stars”. If you watched while you were playing an opponent, you would have noticed that your Opponent has a certain Star Level under each of their Players. The Higher Stars YOUR Character has competing against theirs, the better chance at a win.
Each Star Level will vary in Amateur Bucks costs. You can Level Up half Levels of Stars too. (If you are antsy, you can use Donuts to Level them up, but that is only if it is worth it to YOU.)
In Bunny’s Game, the Breakdown was as Follows (I used Nelson as an Example)
1/2 Star to 1 Star: 26 Amateur Bucks
1 Star to 1 1/2 Stars: 29 Amateur Bucks
1 1/2 Stars to 2 Stars: 32 Amateur Bucks
2 Stars to 2 1/2 Stars: 62 Amateur Bucks
2 1/2 Stars to 3 Stars: 98 Amateur Bucks
3 Stars to 3 1/2 Stars: 140 Amateur Bucks
3 1/2 Stars to 4 Stars: 188 Amateur Bucks
4 Stars to 4 1/2 Stars: 242 Amateur Bucks
4 1/2 Stars to 5 Stars: 302 Amateur Bucks
At this point, your Character will be at MAX LEVEL
NEIGHBOR TAP BALL
The Neighbor Portion will not trigger in the Event until Balls of Glory Part 4. So you have some time to get to this point.
So just how will the “Neighbor” Games work? Well once you trigger Part 4, you will go into the Flag Icon in the Main Event Pop Up and now see MORE Options to Play a game.
Random Opponent: The Game will randomly select any of your Neighbors to battle against. You will have no idea who it is.
**Neighbor’s Name**: You will see a Neighbors Name listed next. It will show you the potential Star Level of Players you will be up against right under it. (From 1-5 Stars.) Though you will not know just how many of their Characters are at that Level. Could be one. Could be all of them.
So the choice is yours to PICK your Player (just don’t pick your nose, at least not with your tapping finger… ewwwwwww).
If your Players are Fatigued and resting, you will see a Pop Up telling you to “GET MORE” aka Revive them with Obesotade or just “CONTINUE” and go visit your Neighbor anyway.
Once in your Neighbors, you will be taken to THEIR Grassy Field. You will see a Flag Icon on it. Tapping on the Flag will pull up your Team Roster. You can also Revive your Characters at this point too.
Select the Characters you want to battle, then “PLAY”. You can do this THREE times, as it is basically your Neighbor Actions. But it will take ALL 3 Actions if you do that and you will not be able to tap any of their Fans. THIS IS ONLY UNTIL YOU UNLOCK THE FANS. Once Fans unlocked (see below), you can have unlimited competitions.
After a Neighbor comes and Plays Tap Ball against YOU, there will be a pop up in your town of the Wins, Ties, Losses totals and YOU will also get a Reward depending on those results.
More coming on this in a separate post.
This triggers right after completion of Balls of Glory Part 4. It will Spark Homer to trigger Fickle Fans. You will be prompted to visit your Neighbors now to Tap on THEIR Fans (like the NPC ones in your town) roaming around.
You will be able to Tap on 3 of them in your Neighbors town to earn Foam Finger, Cash, and XP.
You CAN still tap on houses and graffiti your neighbors. With there now being THREE options to choose from to use those Neighbor Taps, use them wisely.
House, Neighbor Fan, or Neighbor Tap Ball.
Still working on the Mechanics to see if there is a MAX Daily Actions like in the past of 90, will update when we confirm.
Various characters have tasks that will earn you more Amateur Bucks. Will will cover a complete list in another post, but also know that KBBL has a Amateur Buck Earning task as well, 16hrs.
There are the Basics of the game so far. There is a LOT more to it, but that will require our usually breakdown/more specific posts for you. So keep an eye out, we have about a month of all of this.
What do you think of it so far? Where are YOU in the game? Have you bought any donut items yet? Let us know.
