Totbox’s Throwback Thursday: S1 E8 The Telltale Head

Just because I’m on vacation this week doesn’t mean the blog stops running…which means, it’s time for another Throwback Thursday with Totbox!  Enjoy this week’s installment of a great episode! And I’ll see you all in just a couple of days! -Alissa 

Hey You, Yeah You, I know who you are and I know what you did… Just kidding I don’t know anything but I bet you felt paranoid for a second :p

This episode seems to have two themes: guilt and needing to belong/fit in. Guilt is a powerful motivator, if you don’t believe me just ask your mother. :p The need to belong is… A need. Some folks will do the craziest things for acceptance, for example: I decided to write a bunch of posts based on the old episodes of The Simpsons :p , While others just make multiple comments within TSTOA posts… Do you feel guilty that I said that? (Wait, I do that too.)… Before I turn this into a Totbox Tell-All I’d really “Like” to present episode 8:

Where Did THAT Come From – Kiosk, Orphan Alley & sciencewater

Faster than an event speeding donut spender! More powerful than a local Addict! Able to leap long comment threads in a single bound! Look! Up in the TSTO-niverse! It’s a building! It’s a decoration! It’s Superheroes 2016!

In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where did THAT Come From?

Should I Spend Donuts On the First Bank of Springfield?

NOTE: This is a first for the fuzzball doing a SIB so be gentle. I used an Alissa template so hopefully that means it will be amazing.

Because all Superheroes need a sequel…Superheroes 2 has found its way into our pocket sized Springfields!  This super event hit our devices…and with it arrived a whole new Event to make us scratch our heads, and drive us slightly insane. So it’s time to break out those donuts for their super hideouts because there’s a whole store full of superhero inspired premium items!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the First Bank of Springfield to your town?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this BS building to your town.

A few things happened in our games today. The first is the launch of the usual 4th of July Celebration items.

I just returned from the Doctor’s and will be going through all the new info and updating it here in a bit, so hang in there while I do so. 🙂 Continue reading

Superheroes Sequel Prize Guide: Social Battle, Prize 3 Kiosk

Special shout out to Safi for his help with this post while I’m away on vacation this week.  Thanks Safi! 🙂 

Hey there fellow felons!

It’s good to be bad in our Superheroes Sequel event! Especially when it comes to Social Battles. Once you are able to trigger the social battles, you take on your neighbours’ heroes as felons in a quest to unlock 10 social battle prizes.

Before we get into the third prize, the Kiosk, you may have noticed there was no post on the first two social battle prizes. That’s because the first prize (awarded after participating in 10 battles) Tungsten Dude and second prize (awarded after participating in 20 battles) Sciencewater Cooler are fairly self-explanatory and don’t need a guide.

Now back to the Kiosk… Continue reading

Should I Spend Donuts On Superheroes Issue 2 Returning Items?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Because all Superheroes need a sequel…Superheroes 2 has found its way into our pocket sized Springfields!  This super event hit our devices…and with it arrived a whole new Event to make us scratch our heads, and drive us slightly insane. So it’s time to break out those donuts for their super hideouts because there’s a whole store full of superhero inspired premium items!

Naturally, as with every event, there’s returning content in our stores that you can spend your donuts on.  Some returning items were once available for donuts and some were once free prizes that have come back as premium items.  Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything because it’ll be gone soon (especially if it’s making it’s second return to our stores).  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Crap Silo & Plopper or Burns State Prison to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these sequel returns to your town.

Superheroes Sequel Issue 2 is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to the wee early morning hours…at least here on the West Coast. That’s right… for once it’s the resident fuzzball up and atom for all of you. Had to leave Alissa’s name as the author though since she did most of the work. Bunny and I just made sure we were awake and here to verify info. It’s just after 12am Pacific Standard Time…but since crime doesn’t sleep, I guess we don’t either!  Issue 2 of the Superheroes Sequel is upon us….so have at it my friends!

Remember…this is an automatic change in your game.  Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..

This should auto start for you with dialogue from Apu and a task to build the Soilant Red Factory.  This will then be followed by a 4hr task for 10 Springfielders.

Issue 2 runs until July 12th

Just what does Issue 2 have in store for us?  Let’s take a look…
