Tag Archives: How do I Get Astronaut Barney

The Final Countdown Is On for Deep Space!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a quick reminder that the Deep Space Homer Event is set to leave our games tomorrow (0700 GMT, 2am EDT).  So if you’re still working on the questline to earn those prizes, better put it into hyper drive because it leaves in the morning!


Along with the prizes the items in the store will also be leaving…so if you’re thinking about getting Barney, do so now before he’s gone!  Need a little help weighing the pros and cons?  Check out our should I buy post on him here. (you can also check out the should I buy on the carbon rod here)


Oh and don’t forget to get your 5 FREE DONUTS via the Deep Space Easter Egg.  If you haven’t done it yet you can check out the details here.

So what’s next for TSTO?  Well we’ll have to wait and see what EA has in store for us…but for now I wouldn’t put Homer or Lisa on any long tasks.  I’d also avoid sending any freemium characters on 24hr tasks….just in case.

What are your thoughts on the Deep Space Homer Event?  Did you collect all of the prizes?  Buy any premium items?  What do you think we’ll get next?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

Turbo Tappin’ Deep Space Homer: Astronaut Barney

Hey Howdy Hey Space Tappers!

It’s time to get our space on, as Deep Space Homer has hit our Springfields!  Like all events, it’s not without it’s share of premium content and characters.  Of course those premium characters wouldn’t be complete without a questline!

Astronaut Barney is a premium skin for Barney that you can pick up during the Deep Space Homer Event. He comes with a fun 4 part questline, that you may want to hold off on doing until the Event is over…since it’ll stick around for a while.

Let’s take a look at the Turbo Tappin’ version of Astronaut Barney’s questline…

To Infinity and Beyond! Deep Space Homer Update Hits TSTO

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Time to explore a galaxy far far away…as the Space Update teased by EA has hit our games!

2016-01-21 20.46.05

This is an IN-GAME UPDATE, so no need to download a new update from the app store (as long as you’ve downloaded the winter removal update.  If you’re still seeing snow in Springfield, you won’t see the Space Update).

Kent Brockman will auto-start this for you.  After the first part (which is basically instant built), you’ll need Comic Book Guy free to start part 2 and Homer free for the task…which is 6s.  At that point you’ll unlock a few of the Deep Space Homer items in the store.   Once you complete another 6s task for Homer the “event” itself will start.  At least initially, this looks similar to the Thanksgiving Event we had this past year.  Where you complete tasks to unlock prizes.

I’ll be back with more details as soon as I go through it all….

It looks like (at least initially) this “event” is 2 weeks long…so it’ll end just in time for a Valentine’s Day Event.. Continue reading
