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 4 will start on May 4th (Note the Tuesday start date).
Things kick off for Act 3 with some dialogue between Brockman, Marge, Homer, and Smashius…
Brockman: In a turn of events that surprised absolutely no one, Smashius Clay and his small robot army have begun to conquer and enslave Springfield’s human population. Join us after the break when I will reveal my feelings about our new robot overlords.
Marge: Homer, this is terrible!
Homer: Are you kidding? The robots canceled all “organized human activities”, including work! WOOHOO! Hashtag Team Robot!
Smashius Clay: Come, Homer Simpson! You are our slave now, and we’ll be putting you to work in pointless menial labor for our amusement!
Homer: Aw! What’d I do to deserve this?
Smashius Clay: Our friend the bear robot says you were “very handsy”.
Homer: But…he’s so furry! I couldn’t keep them to myself..
This triggers the Act 3 questline, Who’s the Bot, and is followed by a 4hr task for Homer, Marge, Bart, and Lisa, as well as a task to collect Act 3 Currency (115). Who’s the Bot 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 3…
Here’s the Act 3 Synopsis from EA:
Smashius Clay and his robot army enslave the non-robots of Springfield, forcing them to labor at
pointless, repetitive tasks…which isn’t all that different from their normal lives, but they still don’t like it. Meanwhile, Lisa and Bart escape and soon learn that Springfield has secretly been the home of the Pos-i-bots, virtuous robots disguised as everyday items for many years. Their leader, Bestimus Mucho, enlists Bart and Lisa to help go around town and recruit the other pos-i-bots, after which Bestimus Mucho leads them into battle against Smashius Clay’s forces. Unfortunately for Bart and Lisa, Smashius is able to convince Bestimus that humans really are terrible and the two robot leaders should join forces and conquer the world!
As I stated above, you’ll go right into the Who’s the Bot questline, which is what the Act 3 story will follow. This questline is how you’ll unlock the Act 3 prizes.
The currency we’re working on collecting for Act 3…
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 3:
Questline, which I’ll post later, will show how each is unlocked.
Characters who can complete tasks for Act 3:
Robot Rumble Announcers (New Premium)
Love Bot (New Premium)
Brenda (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.
Acts 1 and 2 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…
