Turbo Tappin’ Secret Agents: Act 1

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Secret A-gent man!  Secret A-gent man!  New update…woohoo!! While many of us expected an event to hit our stores, I don’t think anyone saw this one coming!

Secret Agents Event hit our devices yesterday afternoon and with it arrived, not only a whole slew of secret agents, but a whole new questline to work our way through!

As was mentioned on the rundown post Act 1 runs until April 11th, and you’ll need Homer to get things started.

Remember, the questline is there to guide you.  So when you get stuck on something, or haven’t unlocked something, just follow along with the questline and it’ll take you through everything you need to do to complete the first Act and unlock everything you need in order to play properly.

So let’s take a look at the questline to see just what happens when Springfield goes covert….

    Hi All, I’m never going to be able to collect all the Act 1 prizes. I’m just not getting enough Intel or Schematics. Am I doing something wrong? I play 3 or 4 times a day at present surely that should be enough. I’ve never had a situation like this with any theme before, it’s really frustrating. Have EA said anything?

    Is there a way to control the drone flight? Mine keeps going off to land squares I haven’t purchased yet.

  3. Apologies if this has been covered already in another post. Anyone know if it makes a difference in rearranging the area around the Surveillance Post / Agency HQ etc. to make it more advantageous to complete the drone scan game? Right now I have the buildings in an open area somewhat surrounded by buildings (Zenith City lofts and apartments). There are agents in the ‘open’ but also among the buildings. I have approx. 30 buildings up against one another. I usually find about a total of 35 agents in each game. I wonder if there’s a strategy in the placement of the Surveillance Post to possibly find more agents?

    Also, is there any advantage to clearing the Men in Tan Suits BEFORE playing the drone scan game, or do you end up earning the same amount of intel schematics and schematics?


  4. So, just to be clear… can I leave the Hank Scorpio questline (Helium-Neon gas laser) for after the event so I can use the skin for event currency?

    Ugh, and the low schematic drop is annoying and super grueling. I understand if they want to slow it down a bit but this is ridulously slow. People who can’t get on every 4 hours are doomed! I suppose we will see how well it actually picks up in acts 2/3.


  5. Loads of funny dialogue and plenty to keep you busy – even if you don’t have Hank Scorpio 👍😋


  6. Excuse my last comment. Glad to see I’m not the only with the problem collecting

    Tapped out account- buckkevin937


  7. Why is it so difficult to collect schematics?


  8. I know you said you’d have a separate post to talk about the crafting but honestly I have not gotten any Schematics since my first time crafting. Ok i’m reading here that they are rare though someone said they were fixed for 2 each…. But I still am not getting any to drop.


  9. I love this update! EA writers you are awesome!! TSTO as always love your comments, ideas, help calendar etc. Keep up the good work!


  10. Woo Hoo! The donut fairy came into my life and I got Hank Scorpio! If this walk through wasn’t here I might be confused because 4 questlines popped up all at once!

  11. The crafting items in this event is so Meh to me.

    Ohh well at least it’s not an event like superheroes or tapball.


  12. just hit a really good glitch…every time i tap a suit he pops straight back up…went from 8000 to 19000+ in minutes

  13. I only get schematics when I play the mini game. I’ve got a running total of 67. If it’s not a glitch I’m not counting on getting much for crafting, and not spending any donuts.


    • Same here, I play multiple times a day and still haven’t reached the second level ! Those darned schematics are so hard to earn !


  14. When I tap my “men in tan” I only get 12 Intel, no schematics. Only can get those from drone game every 4 hours. I’ve seen others with this problem also reported it fixed in their game, mine still not working right. I can’t craft without being able to collect them.


  15. The “men in tan” are now working correctly…when tapped they issue 2 schematics(for crafting) and 12 intel.


  16. I got one or two prizes which were placed into my inventory. But I didn’t check for them right away, and now I don’t know what they are or what they are called, let alone which part of the inventory they’re in. Can anyone give some insight? I wish that EA would improve the way Inventory works. It’s my only, ONLY beef with this game


    • Unless you know what they are called, you will have to scroll thru the entire inventory…sorry, no shortcuts…
      Ps…if you “don’t know what they are”… how will you know when you find them🤷‍♀️😄?


      • Exactly my point! It would be great if the could add an exclamation point or “New” tab by such things. Oh well, time to scroll and scroll and…


        • I’m not sure of how long it lasts for, but on mine there is a ‘new’ box which appears below the item on the scroll bar. I flick to one side sending the items moving quickly and wait until I see this box, then stop the items to check if it is the one I want. Hope that helps.
