Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Popping in with some super quick information about ROBOTS! Many of you are worried they’re missing from your town, or they’re not spawning properly because when you open your game in the morning you can’t find them. Well…the good news is your game isn’t broken! The even better news is…you’re getting them all cleared for you with the tap of 1 button!
Need more explained? Let’s break down these robots below…
So first let’s talk about the Robot spawn rate…just to get that out of the way.
Robot Spawn Rate:
The Robots spawn at a rate of 1/3minutes. There can be a MAX of 30 in your town at once, with a bank of 50. So an 80 Max Total.
So your town is COMPLETELY full, bank too, in 4hrs.
Ok so now that you know the spawn rate many of you are now saying…So if I slept for 8hrs my town should be crawling with robots I don’t see any!
Here’s the deal…as explained by Pat (Cranky Old Guy) in the comments:
When you first open your screen in the morning, it may seem that your town has no robots in it. I had that happen this morning. HOWEVER- when you play your first Mini-Game you will see a notice at the bottom of the screen pop up, that says that you have cleared 80 robots/collected 80 Parts. So…YES…it does clear every robot in your town, the max being 80 showing and in reserve.
The PolyVac…it’s very purpose…is to clear the Robots AS FAST AS POSSIBLE.
That flash you see when the SciFighter Mini Game starts? That’s the flash to clear every single Robot in your town. (I demoed it several times and explained it, in the fighter video from yesterday. You can view it here)
You’ll notice when it goes off you usually get a little thing that appears saying +80 dark matter etc…that’s the credit you get for each and every Robot that was currently in your town PRIOR to starting the SciFighter game.
So in the mornings, or really any time. You DO NOT NEED TO FIND AND TAP THE ROBOTS! You will get credit for tapping all of them (plus what’s in the bank) every 4 hrs just by playing the mini game.
Coincidence? No. The game actually explains to you this is what they’re doing:
From Dark Matters Pt. 6
So there you have it my friends…no you aren’t going crazy. No your game isn’t broken. Yes, we have a fun tool designed to help us tap those crazy little things wandering around our towns every 4 hours!
FINALLY you can get every last one of the tappables, without even breaking a sweat!
Just log into your game every 4hrs and fire up the Poly Vac. You’ll kill all the Robots wandering your streets AND you’ll get bonus dark matter for playing the SciFighter mini game! Good stuff right?
What are your thoughts on the PolyVac and it’s robot clearing power? Were you one of the ones getting confused on this? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
