Kim was kind enough to offer her help once again for the Superheroes Sequel Event. She’s written up the ins, the outs and everything in between that you need to know about Burns’ Summer Mansion. Enjoy and thanks again for the help Kim!
Hididely-ho there, neighborinos! Our Superhero Sequel is in full swing in Springfield and we know you have questions. Fear not, intrepid citizen! We are here to help you out and give you all the inside information. Without further ado, and no John-Williams’-style fanfare, here is the breakdown on Burns’ Summer Mansion! (How many houses does that guy have, anyway?)
Building/Decoration: Burns’ Summer Mansion
Earns: and /4hrs – amounts vary based on characters sent
Conform-O-Meter: Indolence +10
Once you have worked through the following questlines: Prelude 1 & 2, Orphan Alley 1-3, Who’s the Boss Now? 1-3, Training Day Part 1, you will be prompted to build Burns’ Summer Mansion, which is free. If you’re not sure where you are in the questline, head over to the Turbo Tappin’ Superheros 2: Issue 1.
Once the mansion is built, you will see the following pop-up:
Square inches () are what you will earn in order to upgrade the mansion and increase your tapping radius when you tap the criminals lurking in your towns. This means that the larger your tapping radius is, the more criminals you can clear in one tap. Each level increases your tapping radius by 1 square “inch” (or square – it’s not actually inches, folks).
Basically, you send certain heroes and villains to the mansion and you will be able to earn event currency (brass knuckles, ) and square inches, – similar to, but less complicated than, the Town Plaza during the Wild West event.
Who can I send to Burns’ Summer Mansion?
|Pie Man||Eat 50 Year Old Snacks||2 6|
|Fallout Boy||Scrub the Floors with a Toothbrush||2 6|
|Clownface||Blow Dust off Surfaces||2 6|
|The Collector||Duct Tape the Windows||2 6|
|Cyborg Snake||Eliminate Vermin||2 6|
|Old King Coal||Boss People Around||2 6|
|Citizen Solar||Install Solar Panels||4 12|
|Wind Lad||Blow off Spider Webs||4 12|
So, freemium characters earn 2, 6 and premium characters earn 4, 12
How do I send my characters to the mansion?
You tap on the mansion, which will have a floating above it when characters are available for tasks:
And you will see this window:
Tap “Start” to send your characters on tasks at the mansion. You will not be able to tap directly on the characters in your towns to send them to the mansion; these tasks only appear in the mansion’s menu.
What are for?
Square inches () increase your tapping radius for tapping the criminals in your town. When you first begin the event, you will only be able to tap 1 criminal per square. You use the to upgrade the mansion and increase your tapping radius by one.
What does upgrading do?
Not only does upgrading the mansion increase the tapping radius, it also increases the size of the mansion. When you upgrade to Level 5, you receive the West Wing of the Mansion:
Level 15 gives you the East Wing (complete Mansion):
You are able to change the façade to whichever your favorite is.
How much does upgrading cost?
Each level costs 6 more than the previous one. It’s already at level one. So, level 2 costs 6 , level 3 costs 12, level 4 costs 18, etc. For those of you who, like me, love tables, here you go:
|2||12||+1 Tapping Radius|
|3||18||+1 Tapping Radius|
|4||24||+1 Tapping Radius|
|5||30||+1 Tapping Radius and West Wing|
|6||36||+1 Tapping Radius|
|7||42||+1 Tapping Radius|
|8||48||+1 Tapping Radius|
|9||54||+1 Tapping Radius|
|10||60||+1 Tapping Radius|
|11||66||+1 Tapping Radius|
|12||72||+1 Tapping Radius|
|13||78||+1 Tapping Radius|
|14||84||+1 Tapping Radius|
|15||90||+1 Tapping Radius and East Wing|
|16||96||+1 Tapping Radius|
How long should I keep upgrading?
You really don’t need to upgrade the mansion past level 15. By that point, you’ll have a large tapping radius for capturing criminals and will have fully upgraded the mansion with both wings. However, there is no harm in upgrading past that point. In fact, there will be no other use for the , so you may as well use them. From what we have been able to see, there is no maximum level.
Once I’m done upgrading, should I keep sending characters there?
YES!!! By sending characters to the mansion on tasks, you are also earning event currency; for Issue I that is brass knuckles (). This is an easy and guaranteed way to earn event currency every four hours. Even if you aren’t interested in upgrading the mansion and increasing your tapping radius, send your characters to earn event currency and (once you are done with the Issue I prize track) BONUTS. Woo-hoo!
Personally, I am also ignoring new character quests until the event is over so I can continue to send them to the mansion. This way I can earn my prizes faster and maximize the Bonut round. The character quests (like those for Cyborg Snake, Old King Coal, Citizen Solar, and Wind Lad) will still remain for a while after the event is over, so sending them to the mansion instead of on their individual questlines is a good strategy.
And that, friends and heroes, is the full breakdown of Burns’ Summer Mansion!
