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 Fifth and Final Act 1 prize awarded at 19,500 is Softball Mr. Burns, a new costume for Mr. Burns to wear in Springfield!
So let’s take a closer look at this “coach” and find out just what happens when you drink too much tonic and unlock him in your Springfield.
As long as you’ve reached Level 11 and unlocked Mr. Burns, you’ll automatically unlock this costume and Mr. Burns will become Softball Mr. Burns…
And Softball Mr. Burns is part of the Sporty Oldies Character collection:
As long as you’ve unlocked Mr. Burns, you can immediately start using him to play Tap Ball. You’ll find him on your roster of players when you start a new game.
Softball Mr. Burns also comes with a full questline. Here’s the Turbo Tappin’ Version (we’ll cover the full dialogue as the event winds down)…
