Turbo Tappin’ Sci-Fi Springfield: Act 1

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The nerds have invaded Springfield!  Ok just one nerd, and he’s not all that bad.  And only in Springfield can Professor Frink, with the help of Homer, open up a black hole that transports doppelgangers, robots and Stephen Hawking (!) to our pocket sized Springfields!

The Sci-Fi event hit our devices yesterday afternoon and with it arrived, not only Stephen Hawking and doppelgangers, but a whole new questline to work our way through!

As was mentioned on the rundown post Act 1 runs until August 30th, and you’ll need Homer free for a variety of 6s tasks to get things started.

Remember, the questline is there to guide you.  So when you get stuck on something, or haven’t unlocked something, just follow along with the questline and it’ll take you through everything you need to do to complete the first Act and unlock everything you need in order to play properly.

So let’s take a look at the questline to see just what you need to do to close the black hole and restore order to Springfield…

  1. Anyone having trouble with the sci fighter not working? It’s been around 6times now that I’ve been tapping the robots coming at it and I can only get rid of the first few, and after that it’s like the game isn’t registering me tapping. Even the camera doesn’t work when this happens. Just curious if anyone else is having this issue.

  8. It seems to be taking me forever to earn enough robot parts to craft many things at all..
    and I’m playing every 4 hours like mad ..

    Been trying to get the high (part-)cost items first
    Seems like I’ll get nowhere near all before the items are replaced with new ones soon.

    Maybe I’m missing something?

  9. Which characters provide currency???

    Like

    • Regularly, just the various homers and Frank Grimes.

      During questlines, if it’s an event questline the payout is event currency instead of cash. Not no other characters have regular event tasks

        • I agree, I feel like at the rate I’m going I’m never going to get enough dark matter to get everything. Is anyone else finding it really hard to collect currency? It just feels so slow.

  11. I think I a want to buy Frank Grimes but I remember there being a quest line saying he takes some work to unlock. Is he worth purchasing for the event if he takes time and other characters? Also are the alternate homers and Stephen Hawking the only characters earning dark matter? I read through some posts but didn’t see these questions. Thanks!

Then the task is still incomplete on the side bar.

    • When the countdown starts in the SciFighter, look in the top right corner of your screen and there’s a button to tap to use the flash. I recommend using it when lots of robots are on the screen.
