Who Shot Mr. Burns (Part Three) Mini Event Is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Check your App Stores because the Who Shot Mr. Burns? mini-event is now live and available for download!

This is an APP STORE update, so you do need to download it to see the event.  If you don’t see it in your store try hard closing and/or restarting your device.  Also, it helps to search the App Store for Tapped Out.  Sometimes it shows up via search but not in your list of Apps available for update.

Things kick off with 6s tasks for Kids and Adults. After you complete two parts of 6s tasks the Who Shot Mr. Burns (Part Three) mini event will kick off!

I’ll be back with more as I go through it….

In the meantime, can anyone tell me what’s odd about the new Splash Screen?

The Who Shot Mr. Burns? (Part Three) mini-event ends May 23rd

Ok, so as mentioned above, things kick off with two sets of tasks for kids and adults.  Once you’ve completed those two parts you’ll trigger the event launch…

This is your typical mini-event in TSTO.  Follow a questline (mainly by collecting a particular item via character tasks) to unlock a series of prizes.

For this mini-event the item you collect is…

Burns Coins!  Like bitcoin, only uglier…

So what are the prizes with this event?  Let’s take a look:

Springfield Elementary Crypto-farm

Model of Springfield

Animation for Burns-Destroying Model of Springfield

Sunblocker Decoration

Animation for Burns- Stealing Candy from Maggie

Sundial Decoration + Get Shot Animation for Burns

They’re prizes…I wouldn’t necessarily call them good prizes.  3 animations (although from looking at the images they’re funny animations), 3 decorations & a Facade for Springfield Elementary. Prizes…but nothing to write home about.

I also want to mention, sending characters on tasks for this one is a bit different.  It’ll actually cost you in-game cash to send characters to earn Burnscoins:

So just be aware you are spending in-game cash to send characters to earn coins.  So if your cash totals go down, that’s why.

So how about what’s new in the store?  Everyone’s favorite premium offerings….

New Stuff

Springfield Shopper with Dave Shutton- 185 Donuts (yes you read that right).  Dave has a task to earn Burnscoins.  Sprinfield Shopper earns $150, 13xp/8hrs

Chez Guevara- 45 Donuts, will earn 20 Burnscoins every 4hrs.

Burns’ Chalk Outline- 10 donuts, .25% bonus on cash and XP

Returning Stuff

Jay G Bundle- Includes Jay G, his Mansion & his Goose.  225 Donuts, 100 Donut Rebate, NET 125 Donuts.

The Rich Texan- 85 Donuts, 30 donut Rebate, NET 55 Donuts.

Russ Cargill- 80 Donuts

Hank Scorpio and the Volcano Lair- 200 Donuts, 100 Donut Rebate, NET 100 Donuts.

Lampwick and the Rocket Car- 120 Donuts, 20 Donut Rebate, NET 100 Donuts.


Also available are two NPCs from the Springfield Jobs Event..

Both the Secret Agent & Crook are available in the store as a combo for 50 Donuts….

And finally I’ll leave you with a parting though, the little teasers left for us in the new App Store Description…

Burtal Build on a Failing Park? A Murder Mystery? A preteen roadtrip?

Well I think we know A Murder Mystery relates to this mini event…but I want to highlight one part inparticular…

Anyone else think this could mean this…..

  1. are the cops and robbers NPCs?

  2. Hi,

    Is Jay G and or the Texan a decent buy with the rebate?

  3. I bought the crook and the cop, and I’m glad I did because now I see them and try to tap them to collect event money, but they’re just characters now and it makes me crazy. Plus, the way the crook sneaks around is funny.

    I’m digging the who shot Mr. Burns mini event. It’s from an old episode that I recognize. I didn’t know any of those characters from the last event, and the buildings went right into storage along with the bases from the event before it. I need to do some maintenance on my town. It’s getting a bit sloppy on the edges.

  4. Is there any news from EA about fixing the so-called rollback bug?

  5. A strange thing Ive noticed. My game runs fine, and not until I start to use the recycling plants does it begin to run slow. Does anything like this happen to others?
    Either runs 100% to start with or have noticed a trigger that makes it lag?

    • Yes, I had already commented on that and I have a topic about that on the EA forum.
      The more you send to recycle, the slower your game becomes. And it doesn’t seem to be the animation because after 60 minutes the game is smooth even before you collect.

  6. Who Shot Mr. Burns? (Part Three) Mini-Event

    It’s a simple Mini-Event … which is fine because as funny as the animations are on the Decor? It’s just Decor (a 50% chance these will end up in Storage)! 🤷‍♂️

    Chez Guevara
    The Rich Texan

    I think I will spend Sprinkles on these 2 (still Kem Farming, so I’m not losing any Bonuts here)!👍

  7. I got the update without a visit to the Play store. It just auto-updated. I would have been happy with some downtime, and I am not thrilled with tasks I have to PAY to complete. (Yeah, I know there are many players who are all “I have nothing to spend in-game cash on!” But I am not one of those players… And I hate tasks we have to PAY for. First Redwood, then Cecil, and now THIS.)

  8. For anyone with recent game issues. I was having a problem with loss of donuts, turns out it was linked to a save error / login issue. I fixed it by logging out and then back in. I got a warning about losing progress but only 10 minutes worth. Game now running 100%. Logout then try logging back in.

  9. If I didn’t have auto update on probably would’ve got Fit Tony. Still, the Burns Casino Mystery Box did good for me. I took two pulls, first yielded Caesar’s Pow Wow Casino and the Indian Chief. Not bad. Second pull yielded almost exactly what I was hoping for, the
    Miss Springfield/Hostess Miss Springfield bundle. Didn’t get the motel skin in the deal but still pretty solid.
