Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Time to explore a galaxy far far away…as the Space Update teased by EA has hit our games!
This is an IN-GAME UPDATE, so no need to download a new update from the app store (as long as you’ve downloaded the winter removal update. If you’re still seeing snow in Springfield, you won’t see the Space Update).
Kent Brockman will auto-start this for you. After the first part (which is basically instant built), you’ll need Comic Book Guy free to start part 2 and Homer free for the task…which is 6s. At that point you’ll unlock a few of the Deep Space Homer items in the store. Once you complete another 6s task for Homer the “event” itself will start. At least initially, this looks similar to the Thanksgiving Event we had this past year. Where you complete tasks to unlock prizes.
I’ll be back with more details as soon as I go through it all….
It looks like (at least initially) this “event” is 2 weeks long…so it’ll end just in time for a Valentine’s Day Event..
Sorry this took me a little longer than anticipated to update…dealing with a 2 month old who didn’t want to nap today.
First up, from what I can tell by the game script requirements. You have to have Quimby unlocked in order to start this.
So, as mentioned above this is similar to the Thanksgiving Event, where you have to complete tasks in order to unlock prizes. The prize task screen will open for you once you’ve completed Mars Won Pt. 3.
First let’s look at what’s new in the store..
Rocket Launch Pad- Free, 9×7 in size. Instant Build. Available at Mars Won Pt. 1
Space Shuttle Simulator- 120 Donuts. Comes with Astronaut Barney. Also produced NARA stars. Yes, we’ll be doing a Should I Buy…
Inanimate Carbon Rod Monument- 3o Donuts. Earns 2.75% bonus on all cash and XP (Should I Buy will be done on it, BUT that’s a great value for the bonus % return…)
Portal to Rigel 7- 75 Donuts. Earns $200, 22xp/8hrs Should I Buy
Rigellian Tribal Hut- 20 Donuts. Earns $75, 7xp/3hrs.
Rigellian Shrub- 5 Donuts.
Not going to do new Should I Buys for the 3 Rigellian items. Honestly, they’re not worth it. Don’t waste your donuts on them.
Special Barney Offer…
You can now buy Barney’s Bowlarama and Barney for 250 donuts with a rebate of 130 donuts..that’s a steal!
Now onto the prizes….
Space Training Center- Complete Cheap Space Homer Pt. 1
Deep Space Homer- Complete Cheap Space Homer Pt. 2
Shuttle Hanger- Complete Cheap Space Homer Pt. 3
Special Animation for Deep Space Homer- Complete Cheap Space Homer Pt. 4
Special Animation for Deep Space Homer- Complete Cheap Space Homer Pt. 5
Rocket Launch Platform- Complete Cheap Space Homer Pt. 6
Potato chips are floating around the air of Springfield…so not you’re not seeing things 😉
If you don’t get the Potato Chips…you must not have seen Deep Space Homer. It’s a classic gag from the episode. For those that are confused and don’t get it….
And that covers the basics of this mini event. Just remember you’ve got 2 weeks to earn all of the prizes and then it’s onto something new!
Event Ends February 4th…
What do you think of the Deep Space Homer Event? Thoughts on the prizes? How about Barney? Like the floating chips? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
