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! For this post we’re going to combine the second and fourth prize…why? Because they’re basically the same prize, just designed a bit different. So they fit nicely together in one post 🙂 Sooo…
Both items are decorations for your Springfield. So let’s take a closer look at both of these obstacales and just what happens when you unlock them in your Springfield.
Let’s start with the Obstacle Tires…
You’ll have the ability to place the Tires 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.
And it’s basically the exact same thing for the Obstacle Wall…
You’ll have the ability to place the Wall 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.
And now here are some quick facts about the Obstacles (they’re both exactly the same):
Conform-O-Meter Impact: Vanity +500
Where Can I Place It?: Grass/Pavement
What Does it Do?: Nothing really. Just a decoration for your Springfield. No animation and no character interaction.
So that’s it my friends the full breakdown on the Foam Finger Obstacles for Act 1!
What do you think of the Obstacles? Have you unlocked 1 or both yet? Where about you placed it in your Springfield? Thoughts about the event overall? Any prizes you’re most looking forward to? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
