Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Rev those engines Tappers because Hell on Wheels has arrived! Which car will be the king of the derby? Well, it’s up to you to find out in TSTO’s latest update…Hell on Wheels!
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 is the FINAL Act of this event. The entire event (this act, as well as acts 1-3) ends on May 18th (next Wednesday).
Things kick off for Act 4 with some dialogue between the Simpson family and the CarGo Smart car…
Marge: Homer, I’m disappointed that you didn’t call to tell me what happened but I’m thrilled you got a new car for free!
Homer: Why don’t we take it out for a night on the town tomorrow? We can break in the back seat. ROWR!
Bart and Lisa: EWWWW! Dad! We’re right here!
CarGo Smart Car: You won’t actually fit in my back seat, Mr. Simpson.
Marge: That’s fine, we’ll take my car. We know what fits in my back seat.
Bart and Lisa: EWWWW! Mom! We’re still right here!
Marge: I’ll ask Mrs. Pennyfeather to babysit. She LOVES to pinch Maggie’s cheeks.
Maggie: *concerned “I’m-also-right-here” sucking*
This triggers the Act 4 questline, I, Robot Car and it’s followed by 4hr tasks for Homer, Marge & Maggie, as well as a task to collect Act 4 Currency (115). I, Robot Car 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 4…
Here’s the Act 4 Synopsis from EA:
Marge is thrilled about the new car, and she and Homer decide to go out the next night to celebrate –
but they’ll have to take Marge’s wagon, since there’s no room to get frisky in the smart car. They hire
Mrs. Pennyfeather to babysit the kids and leave on their date. While Mrs. Pennyfeather is obsessed with
Maggie’s cuteness, Bart and Lisa sneak out and convince the smart car to drive them to get pizza. While they’re out and about, the smart car becomes upset by Bart’s snide comments and decides to prove its automotive superiority by driving them into the middle of the Springfield Demolition Derby!
The smart car surprisingly dominates, leading to a showdown with derby legend Gene “No-Helmet”
Dupree – who happens to be driving their father’s more-or-less repaired car. Lisa talks the smart car out of what appears to be a suicidal head-on charge against Dupree, hoping Dupree will also stand down.
The veteran driver does not, but Homer’s old car finally falls apart completely, leading to a demolition
derby draw that upsets the fans. The kids and Dupree flee the derby as they are pelted with debris from
the unruly crowd. Dupree is struck in the head with a bottle, but fortunately he’s used to head trauma
Marge and Homer are furious when they arrive home and discovered the smashed up smart car.
Antoine and Zora arrive and are also furious. Feeling that participating in a demolition derby is not what
they had in mind for the promotion, they take the smart car back. This makes Marge even more furious
herself, and she browbeats the two automotive company executives into replacing Homer’s old car –
which they do by having their team build an exact replica of it. Marge is satisfied, but Homer is
disappointed he’s not getting a “real” new car after all.
As I stated above, you’ll go right into the I, Robot Car questline, which is what the Act 4 story will follow. This questline is how you’ll unlock the Act 4 prizes.
The currency we’re working on collecting for Act 4…
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 4:
Questline, which I’ll post later, will show how each is unlocked.
