Halloween 2016 Prize Guide: Act 1, Prize 5 Count Burns Castle

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Halloween in our pocket-size Springfields!  Yes that magical time of the year when our towns turn dark, our water becomes mucky and there are monsters everywhere to battle.  Just like October in every other suburban town in America, no?

The Halloween Event is in full swing on our devices and it’s full of creepy decorations, buildings and characters…all designed to get us into the Halloween spirit!

This Event is broken up into 3 Acts, with each Act containing part of the story.  To help you move along with the event you’ll get several prizes per Act.  Each prize will either be something fun for Springfield or something to help you move along in the event.  For the First Act you’re tasked with collecting Film Strips (ico_cur_thoh2016_filmstrip_lg) to unlock each prize!

The fifth Act 1 Prize is awarded at 29,950 ico_cur_thoh2016_filmstrip_lg is Count Burns’ Castle, because every count needs his castle…


So let’s take a closer look at this fifth prize and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield…

Once you’ve collected 29,950ico_cur_thoh2016_filmstrip_lg you’ll automatically be awarded the Castle and you’ll see the item unlocked message popup (sorry guys, I forgot to grab the screenshot on this one..)

And you’ll have the option to place it in your Springfield immediately or store it in your inventory for later.  Remember if you store it you’ll have to go back into your inventory to retrieve it.

Once placed a little bit of dialogue pops up from Count Burns, but that’s it.  No questline (other than the initial one telling you to unlock it) and nothing to help you earn more ico_cur_thoh2016_filmstrip_lg…just unlock the prize and move on.

Here are some quick facts about the Castle:

Size: 10×10
Build Time: 4hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Indolence +10
Earns: $200, 20xp/12hrs
MAG Points: Earns 360 ico_cur_thoh2016_magpoints_lg when built.
What Does it Do?: Earns money….Mr. Burns will have a 4hr task there (Have a Drink, Earns $175, 45xp).  Building does have some animation when in use…fog moves around the castle…in a creepy sort of way.

And there you have it, the details behind Count Burns’ Castle, the fifth Halloween prize!

What’s Next?

  1. I really feel like Count Burns should have a task at Count Burns’ Castle.

    Liked by 1 person

  2. Space mutant, Booberella, Suzanne the Witch, and Count Burns all have tasks that earn film strips. I wish I’d realized it sooner.


  3. Just started getting the winged feral rat things. They take 2 taps to kill and give 6 film per tap. So a total of 12 film. Not sure If they take the spot of 2 regular feral or not. When they are motionless for a second they jump in the air and hover for a second or two.
