Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
The latest event is live on both iOS and Android (Amazon users…you’ll have to let me know)! Files call this event Homergeddon, but the official in-game name is Bart Royale. Looks like a battle between the kids and adults! Fun!
I’m working on pulling all of the info, in-between entertaining the Tiny Addict until bedtime. So keep checking back with this post to see more details as I add them. Once I’ve added everything I’ll add Updated and Complete to the title of this post.
A few things to note…first the snow is gone. Back to green Springfield! So that’ll be nice for some of you working out designs…it’s a little rough on the eyes at first, but I did miss the green! (I hate snow after Christmas) Second, the event will kick off with a series of 6s tasks. First and second for Bart and Milhouse, then Bart and Homer and then town youngsters. Once you’ve completed the task for the youngsters the event itself will launch for you. You’ll see the prize track and new items in the store. Then you’ll be tasked with 4hr tasks for Adults and Kids.
I’ll be back with more info as I go through it….
First one thing to note (and some of you may have already noticed) we’re back to the 3 Act format…and a 6-week event. This event ends March 7th. (Act 2 starts Feb 6th and Act 3 Feb 20th)
There will be a small Valentine’s Day content update on the 14th…but it doesn’t look like anything to write home about.
So back to Act 1.
Act 1 runs until February 6th…
As mentioned above it starts off with a series of 6s tasks, once you’ve completed the final 6s task (for a group of youngsters) you’ll launch the event itself.
There are a LOT of layers with this one. I’m going to do my best to give a general overview here. Keep in mind as the event goes on and we’ve had a chance to play through it we’ll post more detailed posts on various topics. This post is just a general overview for Act 1, and getting started with the event.
The first item you’ll unlock is the Mega Playscape…
Once you’ve completed Planet of Escapes Part 4 you’ll start to earn event currency. The event currency for Act 1 is Duff Beer
You’ll also trigger the prize track. Here’s a look at the Act 1 prizes…
Act 1 Prizes
Once you reach Planet of Escapes Part 6 you’ll unlock Tappables in Springfield. The Tappables for this event are…
They spawn at a rate of 1/10 minutes. Max of 30 in your town at once and a bank of 30.
Remember…this is what the files are indicating but it may not be 100% accurate. So don’t shoot the messenger.
Planet of Escapes Part 6 also unlocks neighbor actions. Where, you guessed it, you’ll also tap the tappables. For each tappable you tap you’ll earn 10 and 1 and you’re allowed 30 actions. (basically 10 neighbors, at 3 actions/neighbor)
Crafting unlocks with Planet of Escapes Part 7. You’ll initially be tasked with building Scrap City…the crafting hub.
You can earn it via tappables and tasks at the Playscape.
Once again we’re on a Level up requirement for craftables. This time there are 10 total levels.
Here’s the list of craftables:
You’ll be able to place craftable items inside the bouns area to increase the number of prize track currency you earn for each task at the playscape.
This unlocks with part 8 of Planet of Escapes. Literally just craft the items and place them around the perimeter of the Playscape. Each item will add it’s own unique bonus to your Mega Playscape (for example the barrier adds .25% for each, the lookout adds .75% bonus. You’ll see the bonus payout on each craftable as you unlock new levels)
For those who don’t know…Bonuts means Bonus Donuts…
Items in the Store
Beyond that here’s the new stuff in the store for game currency purchase…
Doomsday Mystery Box- 40 Donuts. Chance for:
Sha-Boom Ka-Boom Cafe
Pet Cemetery + Pet Zombies
Apu’s Apocalypse Jeep
Crazy Iguana Lady Bundle (Crazy Cat Lady if you don’t have her)
Cemetary Plot and Gravedigger Billy
The Island of Dr. Hibbert
And that’s everything so far with Act 1.
A bunch of premiums will be coming back as the event rolls along & there will be a Gil deal (look for it on the 31st).
We’ll be back with more detailed posts on various topics as the event rolls on and we have a chance to assess and put the posts together. But everything is pretty straightforward with this for Act 1…just keep sending characters on tasks to earn that wonderful Duff!
