Turbo Tappin’ Who Shot Mr. Burns? (Part Three): Main Questline and Prizes

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Out with the old and in with the new! Yesterday morning Springfield Jobs left with a quick exit and by yesterday afternoon we had a new mini-event to work our way through!  Yes, it’s time for another round of Who Shot Mr. Burns? (the answer may surprise you!)

Of course, as with all events, a questline comes with it to help move us through the ins and outs of the event…and unlock all of the prizes.  As was mentioned on the rundown post this mini event is similar to the previous mini-events (like Homer the Heretic and the Most Dangerous Game before it), in that you’ve got to complete various tasks to unlock the prizes.

So let’s take a look at the questline to see just how to unlock all the evil prizes…

  1. To be honest. I’m glad this is just a bunch of animations i won’t ever use and nothing special decorations (in my opinion).
    Burns is always recycling metal for my monorail tracks and free doughnuts.
    And no free land tokens so.. Meh..
    I’m still 15 -20 chunks of land from having it all and only used a couple tokens on the ones that costed money.
    Have fun with this one guys

  2. Two questions.
    1) In the mini-Springfield, what is the domed mountain supposed to be? Maybe it’s obvious, but I don’t recognize it.
    2) What buildings produce Burnscoins? Chez Guevara, but any others?
    Thanks!

  11. Personally think this is fun and hoping we’ll get a Part 4 Mini event where we can hunt for clues and at the end place a bet on whodunnit! Maybe I’ve got too high expectations for some fun new format changes to make it interactive for something that’s just a money grabbing interval whilst EA work on something bigger 😊.
    But it’s a laid back event and I’m happy – recently nuked and really wanting to start rebuilding as last time I nuked, I never rebuilt fully.
    Happy Tapping!

  15. Just doing a bit of redesigning and I took some candy cane fences out of storage to put round an area. It didn’t appeal so I tried to put them back into storage and it said I couldn’t store these items, nor could I sell them. So now I have to find a home for 35 candy cane fences somewhere in my Springfield!

    Like

    • Odds are, you bought or crafted those fences and placed them straight into storage. So, the first time you place them, you have to exit out of design mode (and accrue any XP) before you can store them again. Hope that helps!

  16. It’s a little odd that they took one of the most classic Simpsons storylines and made it into a “mini” event.

    But the potential of the “Bart on the Road” event has me interested.

  17. This “lag” is ridiculously annoying! I have gotten to the point that I simply cannot play. I cannot move through my town. I cannot (and I don’t mean it’s slow, it actually will not let me) scroll down in ANY menu. I log out, I uninstall, I travel to friends and Krustyland… all to no avail. This is 2 days now. Any sign of a fix? I sent an email to EA and they are reviewing it…

    • What kind of device are you playing on? That is, what OS? Apple (iOS), Android (Android), or an Amazon Fire tablet (FireOS)?

      Also, are you current on your OS updates? And how much free space do you have on your hard drive?

      I’m on an iPad Air 2 (not updated to the latest version of iOS). When my free space gets below 1gb (on a 64gb hard drive), I have a bad time… lags, crashes, etc.

      If it ever becomes unbearable for me, the first thing I’m doing is deleting a whole bunch of crap. And the second thing I’m doing is (backing up my iPad and) upgrading to the latest version of iOS.

    • I don’t know if this is helpful or not, but when I first started this new event I wanted to send all of my characters possible to do the 6 second tasks. At that time I was experiencing serious lag too. I would tap to send a character and wait 6 seconds then it would let me tap another. This was quite a pain when I want to send 150 or so characters on the task. After sending about 50 adults and all the kids on the second set of tasks I logged out, shut down my Kindle Fire and rebooted. This didn’t seem to help at all, then after sending another 50 adults on the task at 6-8 second wait times each I left the list of people to send, went to the Haunted House where they were going and watched them all come to the house. They would walk a tiny bit then freeze for about 3 seconds, the walk a tiny bit further and freeze. I watched for about 15 minutes until everyone I had sent made it to the house. When the last person went “into” the house things started moving normally again. I went back in to the “send” list for the task and send the rest of the adults with only about a 2 second freeze/lag on each one. Again I watched them all show up as described above with moving/freezing. Once they were all there everything moved normally again. After completing all of the 6 seconds tasks and collecting XP and $ I have not had any problem at all. In fact I think my town in moving faster than it was previously. Scolling through town no longer shows even the little bit of lag it has always showed.

      Seems really weird that things would suddenly get so bad then not only better, but better than ever.

    I like this event. Never got the security sign out thingy though. I have noticed a lottttt of lag since this mini event hit so that has been a little frustrating but I’ll take it over the roll back glitch–hope that never happens again–I live in fear everyday of it. Thanks Addicts for all you do!! Happy tapping everybody and have a lovely day! : )

  20. I like these prizes, but I wonder how big the miniature Springfield is (all my Mr. Burns related buildings are pretty set without much room to grow)…and I’m hoping I can squeeze in the sun dial out in front of (but off to the side of) my town hall

    I am deeply and profoundly disappointed with this event. It doesn’t seem particularly welcoming to new players, either; yeah, those are small amounts of money to us, but what if someone just picked up the game? I also have philosophical issues with paying, even minuscule amounts of imaginary in-game cash, for an event. I’ll probably still play through, because it’s easier than not doing so, but I don’t have to like it.

    • If they just picked up the game odds are they wouldn’t see the mini event. Trigger level is level 20, and they have to have Martin. So generally by the time you’re at that point you have some cash built up. But yes, it is annoying when you’re a newer player and you don’t have millions.

  24. Since the update the game is unplayable for me. Its lagging super hard and i cant barely do anything. When i see the comments on play store ea seems to mess up alot with the update…

    • Same here Riko. Sometimes game starts out fine, but is lagging badly by the time I finish a collection session. Other times it’s laggy the whole time. I usually play on a Samsung Galaxy Tab A. Tried it on my iPhone 5s today and it was also laggy. Trips to Krustyland or playing any mini games makes the lag go away for that trip or game, but once I leave Krustyland or the mini-games it’s back to the lag.

      I also have a glitch, again for the 3d time.
      EA is aware of the problems but is not able to solve this for now. It seems this event will pass me by. I am a player for 5,5 years and this never happened before. What to do I’m not ready to stop because it gave me so much joy in the past grrr.

  26. Question about the FANTASTIC new storage system…

    … anyone nuking anytime soon or have a multiple town they don’t mind nuking?

    Touk was wondering if anyone would know, or could test something:

    If you group-store some areas, and then nuke what remains of the town, will your inventory still save the grouped areas as stored, or will it split it apart in your inventory?

    Thanks 🖒
