Turbo Tappin’ Halloween 2017: Act 1

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, Halloween 2017 certainly hit Springfield with a thud yesterday! A magical event has arrived in our towns, but of course it wasn’t without it’s inital problems.  Thankfully the questline bugs are patched and we’re ready to conjure up some fantastic spells in Springfield!

For Act 1 of Halloween you’re tasked with working your way through the introduction fo all things magical…including wizard studies, trolls, goblin “gold” and fantastic beasts!

As was mentioned on the run down post Act 1 of Halloween runs until October 1th (when Act 2 will start), and you’ll need Lisa and Homer to get things started.

Don’t forget the Questline will help you get some bonus prize currency…so make sure you complete it to earn that extra currency…also the questline is there to guide you.  Make sure you complete the main questline in order to unlock things like neighbor actions, crafting and more.

Now let’s wave our wands and view the quick walkthrough for the first Act of Halloween…

  1. Anyone have problems not being able to find the magic academy after putting it in storage? Any help would be appreciated


  2. Here’s some more hate. Only three characters battling SEVERAL characters that require 15 defeats and then 15 recharges EACH is slow, dull, and aggravating. Especially since half the prizes on offer are ones I already have. Slow. Monotonous. Slow. Dull. Slow, slow, slow… At this juncture I’m only playing in hopes that I capture ‘Slithers.’


  3. Been trying to finish Act 1 for two weeks now. Missed out on story of Act 2 and now Act 3 since I can’t clear off enchanting Kearneymon. Counter remains at 0/15. Any suggestions?


    • As mentioned in this post here, and this one here, and most recently this one here; when you Capture a beast, mana goes from 15 to 0. But when you Enchant a beast, mana goes from 0 to 15. If you’re showing 0/15 for Enchanting, are you sure you’ve sent anyone to Enchant the beast after you finished Capturing it?


      • The counter on the “job bar” I mean, where it says enchant him 15 times. Captured him 15. Then clicked “enchant Kearneymon” from that bar, when it comes to character selection to actually enchant him, I can only capture again and chase him around Springfield. Must have captured him 25 times now. Enchanting worked with no problems on Lewd.


  4. I’m really liking the Halloween aspect and it’s making me more addicted to the game lol I just wish I could collect wands and finish the acts faster. Really want that werewolf


  5. Nicholas Sigman

    Is wizard Martin able to do magical jobs? Willing to buy if he can.


  6. I’m not sure if I am missing anything, but after capturing and enchanting Kearneymon and Lewd, is there any way to collect wands for my characters without purchasing Wiggops or Treestache (already sending Kearnymon and Lewd out every 4 hours)?


  7. Can someone please tell me how to get rid of the black edges…it’s so annoying and makes it all look so dark. Worst feature this year hands down!!!!


    • I do t think you an, it’s there because EAT or TSTO creators wanted to make it seem mystical or scary. If you are playing on a small phone, I understand how it’s a nuisance, but if playing on a tablet, it is no bother.


  8. I still need to have Bart skin skinners pants ow ate ver and it doesn’t show up in any list of tasks, wizard Bart or others. And isn’t this an important quest? And does it disappear after oct 11? Or does it not matter at all?


    • Have you completed all Lisa’s tasks? I’m done with all his takes and hers and they usually come together, mine did.


      • Thanks for the reply Jamie. I exited all the way out of the game finally and the task was there when I reopened. Wonder what “ow ate ver” meant? That was supposed to be “or whatever”. 🙃


  9. I’ve been seeing 3 or 4 of the kids battling the same troll in my friends towns but I can’t figure out how to unlock the extra door slots. Am I a dummy?


  10. started this kinda late. i was wondering if you can speed up the capturing using “free” status. haven’t seen it yet, so not sure if it’s possible.


  11. I’m so messing up this event. First I assign the 4hr task to Lisa and Bart of the side outfit questline instead of doing part 4 (if I remember right), then I attack the wrong monster. Now I can’t get anything from my neighbors because it wants me to collect from Other Springfield first. Well I already visited and tapped there today before I got to that point in the event so I have to wait another 20 hrs.


  12. I gotta air this: WTH is up with the “bonsai beings” craftables?! They are GINORMOUS. They’re essentially nonplaceable—not fun at all.
    Does someone need to explain the concept of SCALE to EA??
    Sorry for the rant, but this feels like a slap in the face from EA.
    Halloween is holy to us old-school Simpsons’ fans.


    • I think they’re roughly the same size as the regular bonsai in the game. But I agree that, in general, they’re not very consistent with scale in this game. (Although, they do have to take some license with scale in this game or we’d never be able to see the characters…having a character that’s roughly half the size of his house isn’t exactly realistic, but it is necessary. But I do think that, for example, from building to building, even ones that are meant to be roughly the same size IRL, they sometimes have ones that are way out of whack with other ones.

  13. Hello, I am a huge fan of Tapped Out, and this is my first Halloween. I looked at past years, the zombies, the ghosts, the leaves falling in your screen…I was so excited…. But I have to say I just like this event….It does not feel Halloween to me (after having seen what Tapped out did it the past)…I am still doing it, every four hours. I am happy of the returning items in the store, but I was more excited for the Act prizes in the Secrets Agents event…
    The craftings are ok for me….
    I love Harry Potter but this Halloween feels more like a long episode tie-in event.
    Magic is fun but It does not feel TreeHouse of Horrors to me.


    • I agree, and also Harry Potter feels more Christmasy to me than anything. Probably because Christmas and the surrounding festivities were always featured in the novels, and I believe the movies were usually released that time of year (could be wrong on that one).
