Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s Chili Cook-Off time in Springfield! Gather up those Insanity Peppers and get ready to lose your mind, as we take a journey with the residents of our pocket-sized Springfields for the hottest chili known to man!
As S8:E9,“El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer (The Mysterious Voyage of Homer)” taught us, Insanity Peppers will make you go, well, insane! And you too can make Homer go insane once you’ve finished the prize track for Homer’s Chiliad, and placed the Insanity Cauldron. You’ll then be able to launch…Insanity Mode!
Let’s breakdown this mini turtle tappin’ game and see how insane it makes you….
As mentioned above, once you’ve finished the prize track (unlocked Wiggum’s Chili tent), you’ll be able to launch Insanity Mode! (initially triggered via the questline, so keep following the walkthrough to get it to trigger for you)
Insanity mode at the Cauldron, for now, this will award you game currency (Pills for SH…for now) for playing a new game. The game is tapping as many tortoises as you can in 30 seconds.
Let’s start with the basics…
How Do I Start Insanity Mode?
When ready, you’ll see a chili floating over the cauldron, tap on it (and make sure Homer is free)…
Before you hit start, make sure you’re ready to play. This will take you into a game screen (similar to Where’s Maggie) and you won’t be able to do anything else until the game is up. So be sure you’re ready to tap!
Once you hit start you’ll start the game and the instructions screen will popup:
How Do I Play?
Simple, you’ll have 30 seconds to tap as many tortoises as you can….so just search your Springfield for them and tap, tap tap. (they will ONLY appear when you’re inside the game…you won’t see them any other time)
What Can I Win?
For now the prize awarded after EVERY attempt…is Pharmaceuticals for Springfield Heights…
It looks like you get 1 pill for every 5 Tortoises tapped.
Pharmaceuticals will only pay out at the Cauldron until June 22nd…so get em while they’re around!
What Else Can I Win?
Similar to the Rocket Ship there are other prizes you can win in the Insanity Game. These prizes are decorations for Springfield.
Here’s a look at what else you can win (in order of how frequently they’ll appear):
Hieroglyphic Wall (most common)
Pumpkin Patch (common)
Cane Field (rare)
Lightup Elder God (rarest) This one will pay out a 1% bonus on all cash and XP.
Of course you won’t always receive an additional prize. In fact, more often than not you’ll get nothing. So don’t be bummed if your game comes back empty handed….
How Often Can I Play Insanity Mode?
You can play Insanity Mode every 8hrs…but you’ll need Homer free to play!
Will Insanity Mode Be Around After Homer’s Chiliad is over?
Yes, as long as you’ve unlocked it you can continue to play after the event is over. Keep in mind that the Pharmaceuticals earned for playing will only be around until June 22nd.
And that’s it my friends! The breakdown of Insanity Mode..the newest mini game to hit TSTO!
Now go get those tortoises…cause you Gotta Catch ‘Em All!
What are your thoughts on Insanity Mode? How many tortoises have you tapped? The highest I’ve seen was 69 from Em over at ToUk..can anyone beat that? Sound off below, you know we love hearing from you!
