Turbo Tappin’ The Springfield Job: Act 1

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Who’s up for a little heist?  Nothing like robbing a Museum, Bank or Casino to brighten your Spring up huh? It’s time for the Springfield Job! Where a group of “sophisticated” Criminals…let’s face it Homer’s involved…plan out heists around the World!

As was mentioned on the run down post Act 1 of Springfield Job runs until April 6th and you’ll need Homer and Mr. Burns to get things started (Among others)…

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 work our way through the frenzy of the Act 1 questline….

  1. I tap on brown house to start heist. I tap on purple button. Nothing happens. How do I start heist?

  2. I’m soooo close to being done with act one. The last thing I have to do is place a grand canal so I bought the grand canal and whenever I try to place it, the game freezes.

  3. Hi all
    Does anybody want to be my ‘Friends Springfields’ i only have one at the moment so could do with others

  4. Hi can anybody explain how I ‘send Crooks to Other Springfields’
    I have tapped the other Springfields area but the crooks dont appear in the other Springfield

  5. Yeah I was gutted because I made that same mistake too.. Grrr 😋

  6. I don’t understand how to reach the 1% bonus for Springfield part 6. It says to hold and then spread out, then I don’t know what to do at that point.

  7. I think EA missed a golden opportunity to make longterm players happier in this event. Sometime back; Was it Tapball event? The Radio station produced game revenue when you set it to the sports channel.

    Wouldn’t it have been great to have an International music channel added to the radio station; & Worldwide news channel to the the TV station? & best of all a Dusk Til Dawn International film festival at the drive in?

    I’ve always wanted a longer than 3 hour task for the drive in & this would have been a great time to introduce a 24 hour one!

    Australia has a dedicated International free to air TV station & many radio stations broadcast in languages other than English.

  8. I used my Kem Farmed Bonuts to reach Level 20 on the Museum of Super Fine Arts (totally worth it and I’ve already earned those Bonuts back)👍

    Yeah the Gondola requires Water
    Yeah the Grand Canal Building(s) require Gravel / Dirt
    Yeah I don’t like placing Decor within close proximity to the Museum of Super Fine Arts
    (I’ll move things around post Event)

    I feel like a 🤡 trying to earn Crafting Currency (not enough is generated in my opinion) but that’s one small gripe

  9. Is unlocking the heist scenes necessary? That is, must they be completed to progress in the event or do they give a reward of event currency after playing?

    Don’t want to waste precious plunder on the cheese truck if I don’t have to.

    • You need to complete it to complete the Act and get the character. Sorry…

      • No, you don’t. Primo (the character) is a prize in the Act 1 series, but the heist scene is separate from the prize track and is unlocked by also crafting the gondola, Da Vinci aircraft, and cheese truck. You do need to craft the gondola for the quest line, but (so far, at least) not the other two items.

        My question was whether it is advantageous to craft the Da Vinci aircraft and cheese truck just to unlock the heist scene if you do not want these items.

        • OK…apples and oranges. The final task is “Unlock Act 1 Finale” which requires you to have all of the stuff…truck, gondola, flying machine, and the character…hence the blacked out silhouettes and check boxes. The simple fact is…you don’t have to do ANY of it. But, you won’t complete the Act…which is what was being asked.

          The question you ask is moot…as the can’t get the scene without placing all of the items. So, “advantageous” is kind of relative.

  10. Just a quick tip, it looks like you can’t place the Grand Canal buildings (or at least number (1)) on boardwalk, it needs to be put on grass.

  11. Not liking events these days. This has better prizes than the “trash event,” but still requires placing decorations in proximity to the event buildings (where I don’t want them). Seriously, why would I want my museum surrounded by those little houses? Sure, I could move them after the event. In the meantime, it looks tacky.

  12. This game has gotten almost unplayable for me.
    I guess the Nvidia k1tablet just isn’t good enough to play this game.
