Addicts Question Corner: Possessed Characters, Witch Marge, Strongman Homer, Spooktacular Bonus and more!

Hey howdy hey Tappers!

We’ve been noticing a few questions popping up in the comments of some posts and, while we try to answer each one individually, we thought everyone could benefit from the answers to these questions. So it’s time for another addition of Addicts Question Corner….

First, just a quick recap of where you should, at least, be at this point in the game in order to stay on track to earn all 10 personal GOO prizes by November 7th. According to Bunny’s GOO Calender you should be averaging about 300 GOO per day and by the end of the day today (October 9th) you should have approx 2,440 GOO canisters (or more) to stay on track for 10,000 GOO by November 7th!

Also, as a community we’re currently sitting at nearly 5,800,000,000…at this rate we should be collecting the next community GOO prize next week about this time! First Church of Lard Lad was dropped into towns yesterday morning, you can find more info on that here.

Now onto the questions…. Continue reading “Addicts Question Corner: Possessed Characters, Witch Marge, Strongman Homer, Spooktacular Bonus and more!”

Addicts Question Corner: Ghosts, Community, Hauntings and More

Hey howdy hey Tappers!

I’ve been noticing a few questions popping up in the comments of some posts and, while we try to answer each one individually, I thought everyone could benefit from the answers to these questions.  So it’s time for another addition of Addicts Question Corner….

First…I know the community GOO total has climbed over 1 billion and many of you are wondering where your first Community prize is.  We’re still working on finding out, as so as we have some answers about it we’ll be sure to post them for everyone!
Community GOO Update: Some are now reporting that it’s now back to many of our original thoughts and it’s 5 billion to Unlock the Church of Lard Lad.  Don’t worry though, at this rate we’ll be there this weekend!  If I have any new info I’ll pass it along as soon as I can!

How many ghosts can be in my town at once?  How long does it take for new ghosts to reappear?
Well, after checking out the game files, it looks like a total of 20 ghosts can be in your town at once.  And new ghosts “re-spawn” every 15 minutes, whether your in your town or not.
If it looks like you’re seeing a decline in ghosts, from when the update first launched, you might be.  Don’t forget originally not many of your neighbors had the ghost popping power yet (only if they sped up their Fortune Teller build) so as more of your neighbors can pop ghosts, and visit you, you’ll see a decline in the number of ghosts in your town.  Don’t worry though, you’ll make up for it by popping up to 5 ghosts in each of your neighbor’s towns.

Can I place Gremlins in the “Other Springfield”?
The answer to this is short and sweet…no.  The game will not allow you to place Gremlins in the “Other Springfield” because there’s no one to try and stop them.  If you want to place Gremlins in towns you’ll need neighbors.  Check our our Add Friends page to find some Tappers looking for new neighbors!

Sometimes when I tap on a haunted building 2 GOO pop out, why?
Well from what I see in the game files shows that you’re only supposed to earn 1 GOO per haunted building that you dehaunt.  So the only thing I can think of (and what’s seeming to be proven true) is that the amount of GOO that comes out of a haunted building is related to how many times a friend has tapped it while you were away.  If a friend un-haunts a building already haunted by the ghosts & another friend comes along and rehaunts it then you’ll be able to collect 2 GOO from one building.
It more all or less evens out because instead of a friend haunting a building (and you collecting a GOO from a new building) they just un-haunted a building that was alraedy haunted.  So in the end you earn the same amount of GOO.

Can I access, from the game, the help and prize screens?
Yes.  Here’s what you do:
