Sci-Fi Springfield 101: Act 1 SciFighter Battles (Video)

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!

One fun new element to this event is the introduction of the SciFighter Mini Game.  In it’s simplest form it’s Insanity Mode from Homer’s Chiliad…but WAYYYY easier.  (and you get to make Robots blow up…that’s always fun lol)

So let’s break down this SciFighter Mini Game…including how to play, what happens if you lose and how to use those Flashes (Cameras)…


So because somethings are just better when visually explained…I went ahead and did a video explanation for the SciFighter Mini Game for y’all to watch.  In it you’ll see what happens when you win the game, what happens when you lose…and when happens when I try to do math. (’s not pretty)  So enjoy!

If you’re having trouble viewing the video here, you can find it via the dropbox link here:

For those at work, or those who just can’t watch the video, here’s a quick breakdown:

-PolyVac Resets for the mini game every 4hrs
-You’ll unlock Flash bulbs (Cameras) when you start Photo Sensitive Deficiency task.  (starts prior to your second battle).  You get 5 for free, after that 1/day for free from the power plant
-Object is to clear as many robots in 20 seconds as you can, while defending your PolyVac.  Up to 5 Robots can hit your PolyVac before it’s destroyed. (5th on destroys it) Only destroyed for 4hrs, then it resets. 
-Better to win the game, than lose.  You’ll earn more
-And I suck at math lol

And for those who want to take on the math challenge…here’s some screen grabs of the various runs of the game:

What are your thoughts on the mini game?  Enjoying it so far?  Are you able to figure out the math that I can’t? Thoughts on the Sci-Fi Event in general?  What are you most looking forward with this event?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. How do I beat mecha hawk I tapped him and robots win and it doesn’t work


  2. I have a mission saying to spend future bucks, I have a lot of them but I’m not sure how to use them? Can someone help me on this? Thanks


  3. Math for scifighter- you get a flat 50 matter per attempt, plus 3 per second you survive and 1 per robot tapped. For robot parts and future bucks, you get a flat 20 plus 1 per second survived and 1 per robot tapped


  4. How do I use future dollars
