Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Murky water, tress have changed colors, and leaves are blowing in Springfield, that can only mean one thing…the annual Treehouse of Horror update is upon us! Yes, with this annual event we never know if we’ll get a trick or a treat, if it’ll be Halloween-y or spoof-y…but it arrives in our pocket-sized towns nonetheless year after year. And this year, marks the 10th…yes the TENTH…Treehouse of Horror update in TSTO. So what does EA have in store for us this year? Dinosaurs! In true Treehouse of Horror spoof style. 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 November 10th. However, Act 4 will start on November 2nd (Note the Tuesday start date).
Things kick off for Act 3 with some dialogue between Lisa, Homer, and Mad Dr. Hibbert…
Lisa: Dad, why are you wearing a frog mask?
Homer: If I can’t beat our dinosaur overlords, I say we join ‘em.
Mad Dr. Hibbert: Hold on, Frogman. We’ve still got options. This crisis started with medical science gone awry, and medical science gone awry is how we’re going to end it.
Lisa: Science going awry has caused a lot of problems in the world.
Mad Dr. Hibbert: C’mon, little girl. A little DNA manipulation never hurt anyone…that we know of.
Quimby: Stand aside, young lady and let the mad scientist do his thing.
This triggers the Act 3 questline, The Mutant Army of Dr. Hibbert and is followed by 4 hr tasks for 5 Springfielders, Dr. Hibbert, and Lisa, as well as a task to collect Act 3 Currency (115), and a task to collect/tap 15 dinosaurs. The Mutant Army of Dr. Hibbert 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:
Dr. Hibbert proposes using human-animal hybrids to fight the dinosaurs. Springfielders don’t want to be turned into animals, but Hibbert reveals that since he’s everyone’s doctor he already had their DNA and has already cloned and grown an army of human-animal hybrids based on the Springfielders. While Lisa balks at the morality of this, everyone else just complains about the choice of animal their clones were combined with. After a brief training regimen to prepare them to fight the dinosaurs, the human-animal hybrids are deployed against Grampasaurus and the dinosaurs, routing the dino army at first. But after the human-animals are distracted by Homer offering them orange slices and juice boxes, the dinosaurs rally and defeat the human-animal hybrids.
As I stated above, you’ll go right into The Mutant Army of Dr. Hibbert 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 2:
Mecha Chalmers (Premium)
Panther Marge (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.
Remember: If you want to know what’s coming in future Acts (Act 4) you can check out our Spoiler YouTube Video on the event here. Loads of images and details
Act 1/Act 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 November 10th to finish those…
