Rise of the Robots Act 2 is Live! The Rundown and What You Need To Know

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…

Reminder: Rise of the Robots Act 2 Starts Tomorrow!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Some of you had mentioned you’d like a separate reminder post for when the next Act of Events start.  So here’s that separate reminder post…

Act 2 of Rise of the Robots starts tomorrow, Friday April 16th, at 11am ET! 

Act 1 of the event won’t be going anywhere, so if you haven’t finished it you have plenty of time to do so. But Act 2 will be starting up with its own prize track, questline and premium character!

Here’s who you’ll need free to start Act 2:

Bart, Chief Knockahomer, Frink and Homer all have tasks (outside of event currency earning tasks) for Part 1 of Act 2.

You’ll also need the characters that earn event currency free.  As a reminder, they are:
Homer
Marge
Bart
Lisa
Ned
Skinner
Wiggum
Frink
Robot Rumble Announcers (New Premium)
New Premium Character for Act 2 (New Premium)

And finally, 1 new premium combo will hit during Act 2.  As noted above this character will help earn event currency, and you’ll need 150 donuts for that combo should you wish to purchase it.

And that’s it, all you need to know to start up Act 2 tomorrow!

I’ll be back a little later today with the Act 1 Full Dialogue!

Where Did THAT Come From- The Prodigy Barn, Chocobots, and Bear Robot

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where Did THAT Come From?

For this post, let’s tackle a few of the “quick-blip” items that hit our pocket-sized towns during Act 1 of the Rise of the Robots Event.  Even though they’re from three different episodes, they’re all just a quick blip in the world of The Simpsons.  So, it’s time to examine where The Prodigy Barn, Chocobots, and Bear Robot all come from…don’t blink or you might miss it!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the event…time for another fun and exciting prize post!  Yes, I know they’re your favorite, don’t even try to deny it.  Ok, you can deny it.  I think we probably feel the same way about these….but they still must be done! Otherwise, what else would I refer people back to when they ask what something does 6 months from now?  Act 1 of the Rise of the Robots event consists of 1 new building, 2 new decorations, an NPC, and one new character.

So let’s take a look at the prizes on the Act 1 Prize Track: The Prodigy Barn, Chocobots, Bear Robot, and Rumble Trophy (Chief Knocka-Homer (a full character) we’ll break down in another post)

App Store Update Available: Rise of the Robots

Note: The update should start at 11am ET.  

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Earlier this afternoon an update hit app stores for the newest multi-event in Springfield!  This event does not start until tomorrow, Wednesday, April 7th, BUT you want to download the update today so you don’t miss a moment when it goes live.

Remember, if you don’t see it listed in your updates you may have to search your app store for Tapped Out to find the update.  Just make sure you update before it launches tomorrow morning.

And as I mentioned in this morning’s post…if you’re looking for Spoilers you can check them out here.  And for those who don’t want spoilers, just want to know who to keep free…Well, you’ll need Bart free to start things off.  You’ll also need the following characters free in your Springfield to complete event quests:  Homer, Marge, Lisa, Flanders, Skinner, Wiggum, and Frink (if you have him).  Now, I’m not 100% certain as I’m still going through everything, but based on the Act 1 synopsis I would also keep Mr. Burns and Smithers free.

And that’s it for now!  So be sure to check your app store, download the update, and be ready for Rise of the Robots to start tomorrow (April 7th)!
