Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Yesterday, an app store update hit our games to remove the Simpsonsverse. And, today a brand-new mini-event started up in our towns! (as long as you’ve downloaded the update)
You’ll need Apu, Wiggum, and Lou free for 6s tasks to get things started with this event.
This mini-event ends, in 2 weeks, on September 29th.
More details below the fold…
So the same basic concept for mini-events, in general, applies to this one. Follow a questline, do the tasks, and unlock the prizes associated with it.
The premise of the event starts when you log into Springfield with Oops, I Did It Again…
Wiggum: You know that feeling you get when you’re pretty sure you forgot to do something important?
Lou: You forgot to lock up the prison again, didn’t you?
Wiggum: How’d you guess?
Lou: It’s all over TV. Mass riot, large-scale breakout, multiple casualties…
Wiggum: Did they at least spell my name right this time?
Lou: Looks like we’ve got some police work to do.
Wiggum: *moans* That’s the part of this job I hate most.
Apu: Chief Wiggum, sir. My store is being robbed!
Wiggum: I got bigger fish to fry right now, Apu. Besides, your store gets robbed like every other day.
Apu: But now there is a line of robbers out the door waiting to rob the place!
Wiggum: Well, props for their organizational skills. Clearly our prison system is doing something right.
Again, this dialogue is followed by a 6s task for Apu, Wiggum and Lou and after that you’ll roll right into the main questline….
The questline to follow for the free prizes is…Bounty of Bounties.
Prizes are as follows…
Always nice to see a prize track full of new prizes (and a new character!)…and not returning items.
Characters who earn currency…
Wolf the Bounty Hunter (New Premium)
Daisy McGunnan (New Cash Item)
The turbo tappin’ post, which I’ll have up later, will show how you unlock each of these prizes. But the basic gist is…follow the questline, unlock the prizes. You guys should be pros at it by now! 🙂
Tappables are Back!
Yes, the big news with this event is that tappables are back in Springfield! Find the escaped convicts around your Springfield and squish them!
While they won’t earn direct currency, they are a required part of the questlines (for example, for Part 1 you need to squish 15 of them).
Here’s what they look like:
There’s no easy way to grab them…tapping Do It next to the task won’t bring you to them, it’ll just bring up the directions. The only way you can find them is to search your Springfield for the Orange Jumpsuits. It’ll take some time, but you’ll find them…and when you do, it’s oh so satisfying to squish them!
Hopefully this means we’ll get some fun new ways to earn currency during the next major event (which should be Halloween…and my guess is it’ll start on October 6th)
The store is then full of new/returning items specifically for this event.
I’m not going to do a new SIB post for returning content. As I’ve been doing lately, I’ve linked their previous posts here either under Details (if it was a free prize originally) or Should I Buy (if it was premium originally). I’ve also marked which items are available in the Yearbook Mystery Box, as always, with a *.
