Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Welcome to the wee early morning hours…at least here on the East Coast. It’s just after 3am on the East Coast of the US…but who can sleep with a black hole invading our pocket-sized Springfields?! Act 2 of the Sci-Fi Event is upon us….so have at it my friends!
Remember…this is an automatic change in your game. Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..
Hawking will start this for you with dialogue from Stephen Hawking and Chief Wiggum. This will be followed by the 4hr tasks for the Multiverse Homers, Lisa and Bart. Oh, and you will have to complete the Act 1 questline. So if you didn’t complete it yet, you won’t see the new questline.
Act 2 runs until September 13th
Just what does Act 2 have in store for us? Let’s take a look…
New Prize Currency for Act 2.
So the ability to earn Dark Matter is now gone. Your counter prize track for Act 2 has reset to zero because you have zero Chronons. So forget about the matter and now it’s time to start over with Chronons.
You’ll earn Chronons very similar to how you earned Dark Matter in Act 1….
-Tapping Robots (They drop ) (REMEMBER: Playing the Mini Game/4hrs clears your town of ALL the Robots..and you get credit for them. Confused? Read this post)
-Sending the Multiverse Homer’s on tasks at the PolyVac (Premium sending Rocker Maggie & Frank Grimes on tasks there)
-Tapping Robots in a Neighbor’s town
-Tapping Anomolies/Cubes in a Neighbor’s Town
Everything pays out the same as it did in Act 1.
There’s also a new Robot to tap in the mini game
Tap these twice in a row to clear them.
Act 2 Personal Prizes
Bonuts are still there after prize track is complete. Chance for them with every 3000 Chronos.
Act 1 Prizes…
If you didn’t collect them all… you can still access them by tapping on the “ACT ONE PRIZES” tab in the Personal Prizes area. As you can no longer collect items for them, your only option now is to pay donuts to outright buy each one left at the point you left off at. (Just like every other event recently.)
Act 2 Crafting
Crafting remains, as it was during Act 1, for Act 2.
You can view the details on how to craft…including using Future Bucks…here

New Items in the Store..
Robot Salvage License- Price as dropped to 60 Donuts…still not worth it…
These two items (Frink’s Robot Dog & Frinkosonic MHV) leave stores on September 13th.
This next one has a couple of options….it’s the Frink Bundle. And it’ll vary if you have Frink vs. if you Don’t Have Frink..
Here’s what you’ll see if you HAVE Frink:
Here’s what you’ll see if you DO NOT have Frink:
Frink’s Lab w/ Professor Frink and LadyBot- 200 Donuts, with a rebate of 75 donuts. So a NET cost of 125 Donuts. (Regularly priced at 150 Donuts, for just Frink and his Lab) Should I Buy for Frink
Yes, if you don’t have Frink you’ll have to purchase the Home separately, but before you complain…keep in mind that you’re paying LESS for Frink than most of us who already owned him did.
These Items (Big Digi Ben, Frink Bundles etc) Leave Stores on September 15th
Oh and this past Saturday (August 27th), the following 2 premium items returned to the store:
Electric Car Bundle- 80 Donuts, Should I Buy
Human Test Subjects- 15 Donuts, .5% Bonus on all Cash and XP (I’m not doing a Should I Buy on these guys… But here are some more details on them)
Electric Cars and Human Test Subjects leave the store on September 3rd.
Yes, before you even ask, we’ll have Should I Buys out on all the new premium stuff (and the Frinkosonic MHV and Frink’s Dog). Might not be immediately, but they’ll be up.
And before you ask…
Here’s a list of posts we’re working on that should be up soon…
-Act 2 Calendar
-Act 2 walkthrough
-SIB for New Content
And that my friends concludes the quick rundown of Sci-Fi Event Act 2!
Remember this is just a quick rundown…as we have time to play through Act 2 ourselves we’ll break everything down in more detail. If you need help with the basics check out the Sci-Fi Event Page in the meantime.
