Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Looks like we’ve got a new little questline (it’s only 5 parts) to work on in Springfield! And this time we get a
free (in-game cash, NOT donuts..so it technically is free…)cannon!
So what’s going on? What the heck happened to our down time? Let’s take a look…
Note: This post includes the Turbo Tappin’ version of the questline…
11:45am ET: Just updated this with some new info at the bottom, so take a second look if you haven’t seen it yet…
So this morning when you start up you’ll pocket-sized Springfield you’ll get a little dialogue auto start for you…
Bart: Dad, Lisa, come quick! I’ve found something amazing! The closest where Mom hid all the things she doesn’t want us playing with.
Lisa: My old safety blanket!
Bart: The samurai sword Grampa gave me!
Homer: My cannon from when I was a stunt performer at the Hullabalooza Festival!
Marge: No. Not the cannon. Don’t you dare place that!
Because all good things come from Samurai Swords and Cannons…
And your first task will be to place/buy the Cannon…
Then you’ll get this popup…
And here’s a look at the questline you’ll have to play through in order to unlock the task…
A Gut-Bustin’ Good Time Pt. 1
Place Stunt Cannon- $1,400 (2×7)
A Gut-Bustin’ Good Time Pt. 2
Make Homer Polish the Cannon- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Make Lisa Suck Her Thumb and Hug Her Blanket- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
A Gut-Bustin’ Good Time Pt. 3

A Gut-Bustin’ Good Time Pt. 5
Make Homer Do Stunt Cannon Performance- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
And from there on out you’ll have a 4hr task for Homer to do a Stunt Cannon Performance!
So now the question that I’m sure most of you are asking…what does this mean?!
Honestly, I think it’s just a fun little side quest to keep everyone tapping and give them something to do (plus bring a fun animation/decoration into the game). I do not think this is a prelude to the next event (of course I could be wrong..wouldn’t be the first time), since there’s no indication of “Stay tuned for ….” etc.
Update: I just found something in the files labeled “Stunt Cannon Teaser” so this COULD be a prelude to the next event. (Homerpalooza perhaps?!
This little update ends July 31st, and puts us on that same path of a new event hitting August 1st that we speculated about here. Honestly, I think it’s just something fun to keep you tapping, considering most people finished the Superhero questline already…this gives you a reason to login.
And that’s it my friends, the details on the latest little update to hit our pocket-size Springfields!
What are your thoughts on the cannon update? Looking forward to unlocking the task? Where have you placed the cannon in your Springfield? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
