Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
The Robots are coming, the Robots are coming! Get ready for a dystopian Springfield, as the robots try to take over! Can they be stopped? It’s up to you to save Springfield in the latest event to hit our pocket-sized towns…Rise of the Robots! As always, loads of dialogue with this one, so be sure to read along to see what happens! And of course, I’ll be posting it as each week wraps up…
Remember, this Act will still be playable until the event ends on May 12th. However, Act 3 will start on April 25th (Note the Sunday start date).
Things kick off for Act 2 with some dialogue between the Announcers, Bart, Frink Jr, and their robots…
Rumble Announcers: We know you’ll be excited for this one, folks! Two local contenders meeting for this week’s championship bout on ROBOT RUMBLE!
Rumble Announcers: That’s right! It comes down to Professor Frink and Frink Junior’s Smashius Clay versus Bart Simpson’s Chief Knockahomer!
Rumble Announcers: I hope they rip each other’s wiring out!
Rumble Announcers: And then eat it!
Rumble Announcers: Goosebumps!
Frink Jr: My dad says we’re going to win because we’re smarter than you!
Bart: Your pocket calculator is smarter than I am — but I’m smart enough to get a whole team of nerds to build my robot!
Frink Jr: Good glayvin!
Smashius Clay: I shall float like a Bluetooth butterfly and sting like a biomimetic bee!
Chief KnockaHomer: I’m going to strike you repeatedly in the head with my wooden mallet. From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow! AAAAAAH-AH!
Smashius Clay: That is terrifying. Please stop.
This triggers the Act 2 questline, Super Robo Cyber Slam, and is followed by a 4hr task for Bart, Chief Knockahomer, Frink, and Homer, as well as a task to collect Act 2 Currency (155). Super Robo Cyber Slam is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of this Act’s prizes.
Let’s take a look at what else is in store during Act 2…
Here’s the Act 2 Synopsis from EA:
In spite of Lisa’s nagging, Bart isn’t concerned about the Frinks’ upgraded robot and continues to celebrate his Robot Rumble championship instead. Meanwhile, Professor Frink and Frink Jr.’s improved robot defeats every bot it faces in the Robot Rumble Arena – and after each victory it somehow enslaves the robots it has defeated! Bart becomes worried about this turn of events and pleads with the nerds to improve his robot too, but they say there’s nothing they can do to help him. In their championship rematch, Bart’s bot is defeated and enslaved by the Frink’s robot, which then announces its intention to enslave the humans of Springfield!
As I stated above, you’ll go right into the Super Robo Cyber Slam questline, which is what the Act 2 story will follow. This questline is how you’ll unlock the Act 2 prizes.
The currency we’re working on collecting for Act 2…
DO NOT FORGET TO SCROLL UP AND DOWN IN THE TASK BOXES (PICTURED ABOVE) TO BE SURE TO COMPLETE ALL TASKS FOR EACH PART.
I’ll lay out specifically what you need to do for each part in the turbo tappin’ post, but I don’t want any of you to get messed up with this. So don’t forget to SCROLL!
Here are the prizes for Part 2:
Questline, which I’ll post later, will show how each is unlocked.
Characters who can complete tasks for Act 2:
Robot Rumble Announcers (New Premium)
Love Bot (New Premium)
Each Act will have a new premium character that will earn event currency. From what I can see, based on the info from EA, characters will be used throughout the entire event. So Act 1 will be used in Act 2, 3, and 4…etc.
Act 1 Prizes
These are STILL unlockable if you haven’t completed that prize track. You have until the event ends to unlock ALL the prizes. So keep going with the earlier Acts if you haven’t yet finished it. You have until May 12th to finish those…
Here’s what’s included today…
All other returning content, that arrived during Act 1 remains until the event ends. (including the Mystery Box )
