Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Well, in a surprise move…EA has released Superheroes 2 to our App Stores! (a day earlier than most of us thought…)
Back with more as I go through it…for now know that Fallout Boy starts it. If you don’t have Fallout Boy he’ll be awarded to you for free 😉
Quest chain starts:
Fallout Boy- 6s
Pieman (Homer)- 6s
Build Orphan Alley (Free)- 6s Build
This will launch the event hub and items in the store….
More details below the fold…
(So last night, because I was exhausted, I didn’t finish out the questline…which means I didn’t unlock social battle prizes. I’ve covered their details below)
The best way for me to describe my initial impressions of this event is it’s a combination of Superheroes retreads (Criminals are back to tap) and Tap Ball. You’ll have battles, where your heroes will need to fight the enemy. Very similar to Tap Ball. And of course that’s the most efficient want to earn currency to unlock prizes.
I’ll break everything down in the rundown post, and then we’ll have (as always) more detailed posts explaining everything.
But that’ll be later tonight, as I’ve got to get Miss Riley and get her ready for bed. So I’ll be back with more a little later this evening…
So so now I’ve had a chance to go through everything, I can finally break it all down for you guys. As mentioned above, this is pretty easy. It’s a combination of Superheroes and Tap Ball. If you were around for both, this should be a breeze for you. 🙂
Issue 1 Ends June 28th…when Issue 2 will start.
First up…the Prize Currency for Issue 1 is Brass Knuckles….
You can earn them via Battles at the Alley, upgrades at Burns’ Summer Mansion (more on that in a bit) and Tapping Criminals.
Quick Currency Guide:
These are the various things you’ll earn throughout Issue 1
Brass Knuckles- Prize Currency for Issue 1
Trading Card- Crafting Currency for Issue 1
Gems- Used to upgrade Heroes for Battle.
Band-Aid- Used to heal Heroes after a Battle.
Sciencewater- Used to instantly heal Heroes during a Battle.
The first building you’ll come across is..
Orphan Alley- Free. 6s Build. 14×13. This is the hub for your battles. We’ll break battles down in another post, but the basics are you send your heroes to battle the Felons at the Alley.
Winning battles will help you earn more and crafting currency.
Criminals…Yes they’re back! Tap these guys to earn more Trading Cards (crafting currency), Brass Knuckles & Sciencewater. Criminals will earn you 2 and 3 . And the occasional (Sciecnewater is used to recharge your heroes during battle)
30 max in town, with a bank of 30.
You’ll also be able to tap 3 in a neighbor’s town for the same payouts. You’ll be able to do it once you unlock neighbor actions. (Questline will guide you)

And now the question everyone wants answered…Are There Donuts When You Unlock all of the prizes?
The answer is…Yes!
Superhero Bonus. Every 10,000 you’ll have a chance for donuts. You can earn 1, 2 or 3 Donuts. Just like the Where’s Maggie Game or other games.
Items in the Store for Purchase

There may be items I’m missing since I have everything from the last Superheroes.
Burns’ Summer Mansion- Free. 12×15, 6s Build. Upgrade the Mansion (Unlocked during the questline) to increase the Tap Radius for Criminal Tapping and to earn more Brass Knuckles.
I”ll break the Mansion down in another post, but here’s a look at the tasks that can be done there (and who can do them):
Each is 4hrs and earns Earns 2 , 6
Old King Coal
Again, the Blueprints are used to upgrade the Mansion. And Mansion Upgrades increase the Tap Radius for tapping Criminals, as well as unlock new facades for the Mansion.
Crafting is back for Superheroes 2! And yes…before you even ask, I will be doing a full crafting guide breakdown.
Here’s a quick look at what you can craft:
Small Band-Aid Box- 100 (Contains 5 Band-Aids)
Large Band-Aid Box- 210 (Contains 10 Band-Aids)
First Aid Kit- 420 (Contains 20 Band-Aids)
Springfield Books- 2,410.
The Collector Lucite Statue- 785
The Collector’s Car- 965
Lucite Container- 325
Now pay close attention…these crafting items will LEAVE once Issue 1 ends. It specifically says in the crafting Box “Hurry Up! These items will be swapped for new ones in:
Social Battle Prizes
After you’ve completed a few battles in your own Springfield, you’ll unlock the ability to do Social Battles.
You battle your neighbors just like you do battles in your own Springfield…only this time you’re the bad guy.
You can do 3 Social battles/day…and no more than that.
Social Battles, as mentioned in the guide, will earn you prizes. Some cool things exclusive to the Social Battle prize track. Here’s a look at what you can win:
Tungsten Dude- (Awarded after 10 Battles) Felon to use in neighbor battles.
Sciencewater Cooler- (Awarded after 20 Battles) Contains 9 Sciencewaters
Kiosk- (Awarded after 32 Battles
STEM-antha- (Awarded after 45 Battles) Felon to use in neighbor battles
Trading Card Box- (Awarded after 56 Battles) Contains 500 Trading Cards (used for crafting)
Gluteus- (Awarded after 68 Battles) Felon used in neighbor battles
Pie Man Epic Statue- (Awarded after 80 Battles)
First Aid Kit- (Awarded after 92 Battles) Contains 20 Band-Aids
Meg Ahertz- (Awarded after 105 Battles) Felon used in neighbor battles
One Week Wonder Films- (Awarded after 115 Battles) Earns $300,20xp/24hrs
Because you can only do 3 battles/day, social battle prizes are meant to be paced. And the pace will be SLOW. So don’t stress out about them..everyone is in the same boat. You won’t be able to unlock the first prize until 4 days into the event…so relax. Have fun and enjoy.
Update: A few of you are having trouble getting battles when visiting friends. To activate a battle, assuming the quest has popped for you, tap the fist in the top right corner of their town:
If you don’t see it it’s likely that they haven’t activated the event, you haven’t hit that part in the questline or something else is going on. If you’ve hit that part in the questline go to Other Springfield and check for the fist. If it’s there you know you’ve got it right.
there’s a new strip of land added to the game with this update. It runs from the ocean to the right. And it’s at the very bottom of your Springfield (opposite the mountain range)
And there you have it my friends…the quick breakdown for the Superheroes Sequel!
