Ever take a REALLY close look at the Ghost Possessions in action? It is really cool to catch it in as it happens in your game. First off…what does it look like when they do get posssessed? Well the ghost hovers close to form an attack and it happens REALLY QUICK…so don’t blink! They go in through the back of the head, light bursts out of their body, and WHOOSH…possessed.
Shhhh…come a lil closer…closer…TOO CLOSE!!! BACK UP A LIL! Sheesh. So, I have a lil secret I wanna share. Did you know as you are tapping your 5 ghosts in your neighbors town that you can get MORE than five. You did??!! Who told you??! WHO?! That lil…fine then. So much for my lil secret. Now what am I supposed to write about?
I guess I will just show you MY pics of me getting 7 & 8 (YES 8! I thought you said you knew…liars.) It takes a lil patience to wait til you get three or more all in REALLY close proximity. Get your itchy tappin finger ready…AND TAP LIKE A MAD WOMAN…or man. WOOHOO!!! Extra Goo! Let me know if any of you were successful in this too.
Looks like EA has disabled this ability with the new updates they sent out the last few days. Some are still able to, for the moment. Mine just changed now, even though I was one of first to get update. So…no more double tapping ghosts. Well, at least it was a fun treat while it lasted.
I am losing my frakkin mind here. I am like a lil kid let lose in the BIGGEST. CANDY. STORE. EVER. I just don’t know where to look. I want to catch every lil thing and it is making me lose my mind. Ok, you got me, “You gotta have a mind to lose it.” Pssssh. Even an insane mind such as my mind is still a mind. You mind?
So as this new content is ADD dreamland and I just can’t stop looking at everything all at once, I figured I would take a break from the madness and touch on a few cool things that I am loving about this game. My head is spinning round n round n round n round n round…
I love that EA took the time to provide us some personality in even the ghosts. Each one is a lil different.
Have YOU noticed the different ghosts running around these places? See something a little different?
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEA has listened to us poor Android users that missed out on last years items from the 2012 Halloween Event (this isn’t even all of them).
Now as a 2D fanatic, I gotta look at the creative value in some of these items. I already have a few things in mind for the Dead Trees. Gonna buy at LEAST 100. The pumpkins are nice and tiny and perfect for use as an orange color dot in creating. I plan on buying at LEAST 500 pumpkins.
Once you reach 1,250 GOO canisters you unlock the 3rd free personal prize in the TSTO Halloween Event…the Vac-U-Bot (for info about the first two prizes check here). Unlike the first two items, the Vac-U-Bot is not a building or decoration. Instead it’s a tool to help you catch more ghosts!
Once you reach 1,250 GOO canisters dialogue will auto-start:
Frink: Congratulations! You’ve just acquired the latest in ghost disposal technology from Frink Removal Incorporated, of FRINC. Homer: It looks like one of those little robots that vacuums up dirt, but it’s completely and utterly different. It’s a little robot that vacuums up ghosts. Okay, let’s such soul. Where does it plug in? Frink: It doesn’t! In a major convenience, it runs for fifteen minutes at a time on two pounds of uranium. Homer: Ooh, that’s lucky. I have a couple uranium rods in my pocket. I put them there to keep my genitals warm.
Now, to activate your Vac-U-Bot you have to tap the ghost icon in the top right corner of your screen. That will create a drop down and the second item will be your Vac-U-Bot. Simply tap on it and follow the on screen instructions.
You tap the scree and keep your finger down and slide it around the screen. It will create a vacuum and suck up any ghosts it sees! Unfortunately, I can’t take a screenshot of the vacuum at work because I need to keep a finger on the screen at all times in order to make the vacuum work. But take my word for it, it’s pretty neat!
Just a quick post about something cool….you can find donuts in Ghosts (and haunted buildings, possessed characters, etc) when you pop them! (woohoo free donuts!) I had heard reports of this happening, but I always like to verify it for myself. A short while ago I was tapping in a friends town and out popped a delicious sprinkly pink donut with my purple GOO! Is there anything sweeter?!
So be on the look out for free donuts with your GOO! Another treat from EA this Halloween!
A quick lil treat for all you trickers just in case you didn’t pick up on it, or you’re not quite there yet.
Krustyland has cars in the parking lot. WHAT??!! BIG DEAL?? 🙁 Ok…fine…maybe this just only got me excited. Pssssh. Whatever. I am gonna just go back to my lil world and enjoy the fact my Krustyland looks like it is actually in use now. 😛
Literally. BOO! I was REALLY hoping for yet another EA treat. I was hoping that my Krustyland would be haunted as well. Can you imagine ghosts riding on the Tooth Chipper? Or better yet, pulling riders OFF the rides? So many funny lil devilish things they could’ve done. Not to mention the Gremlins pulling the rides apart piece by piece. Alas, I will just have to keep this one as well in my own lil head world of imagination.
MOVE ALONG! NOTHING ELSE TO SEE HERE! THIS IS NOT THE POST YOU’RE LOOKING FOR!
Bunny hoppin on in here for a quick recap on your Neighboreeno visiting. Once YOU have built the Gypsy building, you can start to pop ghosts and collect Gremlins n Goo. You now can go to your neighboreenos to get even more gremlins and goo.
BUT FIRST. Your neighboreeno needs to have gotten to the ghost popping level too. How can you tell? Just look by their name in the town section. If the Goo Counter is at 0, they are not ready for all the fun. If their counter is at 1 or more Goo, then you can go have Halloween fun in their town.
Once in, you will have the same 3 chances to “tap” their house. The top right corner will tell you how many taps you have left. (Like 3/3.) However, instead of those $ signs, you will now see lil white ghost symbols above them.
Tap the lil ghost and VOILA…HAUNTED HOUSE!!!
This all works the same as before, the buildings have to be available to tap. If other neighbors beat you to it and you see no ghosts, then either you didn’t check to see if they are ready and above zero goo or they have been all tapped out and you will have to wait until next time to “haunt” their homes. Make sure you don’t leave the town until you finish all your tasks that you can.
Hope this makes sense. Any further questions, let me know. 🙂
As you’re collecting your GOO you’ll start to reach those prize milestones. So far the first two prizes unlock “mini-quests” (woohoo free prizes AND free quests!). Since they’re both pretty simple and quick I’ve decided to combine the two!
For those of you around for Whacking Day, the thought of collecting items to win prizes may either bring up fond memories or send you screaming for the hills! But don’t worry, this time around the Addicts team is here to help! We’ve got you covered, so that plus the more than a month you have to play the update should help you achieve all of the goals! Let’s get right to it by breaking down the “game inside the game”.
Just call yourself the new Ghostbuster, because that’s what the Simpsons are asking you to do here! The object is to “Pop” (EA wouldn’t dare use “whack” and stir up those flashbacks!) the Ghosts to collect their GOO. GOO is the new in-game currency for special Halloween items. Occasionally a Ghost will spill out a Gremlin (they’re attracted to GOO after all) when you pop them. Gremlins are collected to put in your friend’s towns , they’ll help you collect more GOO (since Gremlins are attracted to GOO). Confused yet? Don’t be…let’s break it all down step by step Continue reading →
The first part of the Halloween walkthrough was covered by Bunny earlier today, along with a great “behind the item” understanding of how the Fortune Teller shop relates to the Simpsons (you can read all about it here). This part of the walkthrough is what happens after the shop has been built. We’ve been getting a lot of questions about ghosts, gremlins and GOO so here’s how you unlock them! For those that don’t want to find out just yet the walkthrough starts after the page break 🙂 Continue reading →
