Salutations Senors, Senoras, Senoritas, Statisticians & Strategists,
(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter ‘S’)
What better way to spend your time than talking math. So from time-to-time, I’ll come to you with a post that delves into the wonderful world of numbers, stats, and/or strategies.
While we’ve previously discussed Springfield Downs and the Go Kart Track a couple months ago, over the next few weeks, we’ll continue to look at most of the Minigames found within our game. We start our journey today with Insanity Mode!
The Insanity Mode minigame can be played at the Insanity Cauldron every 8 hours and requires Homer to be free. A chili icon () will appear above the Insanity Cauldron when the minigame is ready to be played.
The objective of the minigame is to tap as many tortoises ()as possible in the lapse of 30 seconds. Rewards will be then given to the player depending on the amount of tortoises tapped. The standard rewards are both Cash and XP. For those who have not yet reached the cap for the Springfield Heights currency of Pharmaceuticals, they will be rewarded with Pharmaceuticals in lieu of Cash.
= 500 + 10(t), where t is the amount of tortoises tapped.
Note: Minimum reward $500, even if 0 tortoises are tapped. Maximum reward $2,000 even if more than 150 tortoises are tapped.
= 100 + 2(t), where t is the amount of tortoises tapped.
Note: Minimum reward 100 XP, even if 0 tortoises are tapped. Maximum reward 400 XP even if more than 150 tortoises are tapped.
Additionally on each play, there is a chance to obtain a surprise bonus reward:
|No surprise bonus reward||78.22%|
Light-up Elder God
(Awards 1.00% bonus)
The rarest of these awards is the Light-up Elder God that has a 0.99% probability of being awarded and comes with a 1.00% bonus to XP and cash when placed in your Springfield. Therefore, it is quite beneficial to continue to play the Insanity Mode routinely.
Do you play the Insanity Mode? How many tortoises do you usually tap? Have you unlocked any rare items? How many Light-up Elder Gods do you have?
