Tap Ball Prize Guide: Act 2, Prize 3 Springy

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 Second “Act” of the Tap Ball Event (funny they’re called Acts, really they should be called Periods like Hockey.  Oh EA, I thought you knew sports 😉 ) you’ll unlock Tennis Marge, FIT Milhouse, unlock Community Challenges and continue to 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 Second Act you’re tasked with collecting Hats (ico_june2015_hats_01) to unlock each prize!  The third Act 2 prize awarded at 17,800 ico_june2015_hats_01 is Springy, a new NPC (non-playable character) for your Springfield!

So let’s take a closer look at this life-like spring and find out just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield. 

Once you’ve collected 17,800 ico_june2015_hats_01 you’ll automatically be awarded Springy and you’ll see this message popup:

You can choose to store Springy in your inventory or place it in your Springfield now.  Remember if you place it in your inventory you’ll have to go into your inventory to retrieve it later.

If you choose to place Springy in your Springfield now you’ll see this dialogue from Homer…

Springy is a NPC (non-playable Character), so he won’t have any tasks.  He’ll just hop around your Springfield like other NPCs do.

  1. Interesting, I received a notice that my Tap Ball Payers had played 30 games today, were exhausted and could play no more for today.
    But then I sent them out myself.
    Wow! My friends really like playing me!

    • I’d be curious to know how many stars your team is rated…what rating is the most popular with other folks when they choose someone to play against.
