Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Well we teased it earlier..and now it’s live (on both iOS and Android from what I can tell)!
This is an APP STORE update, so check your app stores to update. If you don’t see it as a pending update search your store for Tapped Out.
As always I’ll be back with more details as I go through them, but for now…
It starts off with a 6s task for Homer, followed by another 6s task for Homer, and another (along with a 6s task for 3 Springfielders). You’ll then be tasked to build the Agency HQ (free) and then a 4hr task for Springfield “agents”. Building the HQ will unlock the prize track for you as well as new items in the store…
The characters (villains) in the dialogue look strangely like the Villains from Superheroes 2….
More details below….
Act 1 Ends in 2 weeks, April 11th.
Event Ends in 41+ Days, May 9th.
Keep those dates in your mind….remember that each Act should be 2 weeks long…
So we’ve got lots of intrigue with this event. International men (and women) of mystery and villains of James Bond proportions. It’s basically Superheroes without the capes! (and everyone’s wearing their underwear on the inside)
So let’s get to it, shall we?
I’ll breakdown each section below but let’s get to the items and contents in the store first. As mentioned above, you’ll have to follow a series of 6s tasks for Homer (and a few other Springfielders) to get the event to trigger and new items to appear in your stores.
Here’s a look at the “goodies” for Act 1…
These items will be free in cost at various points of the Act 1 questline
Now here’s what’s in the store…
/ Mastermind Bundle- If you have Hank Scorpio….120 Donuts (Mastermind Hank Scorpio and Globex Balloon) If you DO NOT have Hank Scorpio…160 Donuts, 40 Donut rebate, net 120 Donuts. (comes with Volcano Lair, Hank Scorpio & Mastermind Hank Scorpio)
There MAY be a bundle with McBain, Tatum and Lurleen…according to the images there is one. But my low level game isn’t at a point of unlocking Lurleen and my other games all have one of the 3 characters. So if you see it, let me know the details.
Act 1 Prizes
It’s earned via the questline (100 for each part you complete)
Tapping the Men in Tan (earn 12/tap)
Neighbor Actions (earn 4/tap)
Clearing Actions in your town (earn 1/tap)
Tasks at the Agency HQ (Earns 40 for Freemium and 60 for Premium. You can send: Homer, Apu, Cletus, Krusty, Skinner, Marge, Moe, Rex Banner, Tatum, Lurleen, Duffman, McBain, Gabbo and Arthur & Lucious)
1 strip of land directly across from the ocean…runs vertical. (far right of screen)
So crafting is triggered via the questline & the Hidden Research Center is what triggers it. Once that’s built you’ll unlock the crafting.
I’ll have a full post breaking down crafting, as usual, but for now know that it’s just like previous events. You’ve got to craft to level up, and leveling up unlocks more prizes to craft.
-via the prize track
-tapping Men in Tan Suits (not awarded always, when it is you’ll get 2 from them)
-Using the Surveillance Post
Again I’ll have a full crafting breakdown, including prize details in another post.
Much like the Polyvac and Tourist Center before it, the Drone Scan (from the Surveillance Post) is a game you can play to clear hidden agents AND in the process clear all of the Men in Tan Suits..
Via the questline you’ll unlock the ability to earn more prize currency from your neighbors. This is done via hacking. When you go into your neighbor’s town, simply tap the buildings with the wifi signal over them…
You’ll then “hack” their buildings
The Hacker’s Upgrade Kit (in stores for 90 Donuts) is the item for this event that allows you to get double event currency from tapping Neighbor’s towns. (NOT WORTH IT)
The Situation Room (Dossiers)
After you’ve completed the 4hr task with The Man Who Knew Too Little Pt. 4, you’ll trigger the Situation Room….
This is a whole other part of the event, another prize track to unlock different prizes. (we’ve seen things like this before)
Basically, complete more tasks to unlock prizes/rewards. Here’s what it’ll look like:
I’ll be back with a full post breaking this down, as you all know by now, I’ve got to go through it myself…
And that’s it my friends! The quick rundown details of the first act of the Secret Agents event!
And before you ask…we’ll be back with posts for the following:
-Calendar, Act 1
-Turbo Tapping (questline) Act 1
-Should I Buy Posts, New and old content
-Further Breakdowns on each element of the event
-And much, much more!
