Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Are you ready for some Tap Ball!? Tap Ball is the newest sensation sweeping the streets of Springfield. A game invented by our very own Homer J Simpson! In the First “Act” of the Tap Ball Event (funny they’re called Acts, really they should be called Periods like Hockey. Oh EA, it thought you knew sports 😉 ) you’ll unlock Referee Homer, Soccer Lisa, Pin Pal Apu, Build a Stadium (with a little help from Duff, the Kwik-E-Mart, Costington’s and Stupid Flanders) and challenge your friends and neighbors to some friendly Tap Ball competitions!
This Event is broken up into 3 Acts (again, should be called Periods EA…), with each Act containing part of the story. To help you move along with the event you’ll get several prizes per Act. Each prize will either be something fun for Springfield or something to help you move along in the event. For the First Act you’re tasked with collecting Foam Fingers () to unlock each prize! The First Act 1 prize awarded at 1,900 is the Homertron, a new state of the art scoreboard for your Stadium!
So let’s take a closer look at this scoreboard and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield.
You’ll have the ability to place the Homertron in your Springfield immediately or place it in your inventory for later (store). If you store it, remember you’ll have to go into your inventory to retrieve it.
Here are some quick facts about the Homertron:
Conform-O-Meter Impact: Vanity +1,000
Where Can I Place It?: Beach/Grass/Pavement/Boardwalk
What Does it Do?: This is an animated decoration and it will light up and play “ads” for various things in Springfield…everything from Duff Lady to Malk to the Blocko Store. It’s a pretty neat decoration and makes a nice addition to the Stadium. Here’s a look at one of the “ads”:
So that’s it my friends the full breakdown on the Homertron!
