Turbo Tappin’ Deep Space Homer: Astronaut Barney

Hey Howdy Hey Space Tappers!

It’s time to get our space on, as Deep Space Homer has hit our Springfields!  Like all events, it’s not without it’s share of premium content and characters.  Of course those premium characters wouldn’t be complete without a questline!

Astronaut Barney is a premium skin for Barney that you can pick up during the Deep Space Homer Event. He comes with a fun 4 part questline, that you may want to hold off on doing until the Event is over…since it’ll stick around for a while.

Deep Space Homer Prize Guide: Rocket Ship

Hey Howdy Hey Space Tappers!

The Deep Space Homer mini event hit our Springfield’s yesterday and with it arrived a whole bunch (ok a few) of Space Themed prizes for our Springfields!

This event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes.  For each of the first 6 parts of Cheap Space Homer you’ll have to earn star via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part.  The sixth and final prize you’ll earn is the Rocket Ship…because every astronaut needs a Rocket Ship to blast off in…
