Tapped Out Event Walkthroughs: Monorail

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Monorail Event is winding down and we thought now would be a fun time to take a look back at all the dialogue and jokes of the main questlines that popped up during Monorail Event (we’ll cover the characters in another post).  Especially since I know many of you were excited about the Monorail you may have tapped right through some of the fun! So if you missed any of the dialogue during the 3 Acts here’s your chance to catch it all!

It all starts way back when Garbage was a problem in Springfield and Lyle Lanley shows up with his song and dance….can you remember back that far?  So here we go with Homer, Garbage and Lyle….

Turbo Tappin’ the Monorail: Act 1

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well after over a year and a half of speculation and teasing the Monorail is FINALLY in Springfield!  An actual working Monorail that you can design yourself…so no two will look alike!  Pretty awesome event!

Of course with an all new event you know that means an all new questline to conquer.  This event, like ones in the past, are broken up into Acts.  There are three total Acts for the Monorail Event and during the First Act the questline will guide you through the basics of how to play the Monorail Event.  The questline will walk you through what you need to do as long as you’re patient and follow along (in otherwords don’t go ahead thinking you know what’s coming, cause you’ll get stuck).

So let’s get to tappin’ shall we?

Monorail is Live! (Updated and Complete)

Update: A Patch just game through (around 5:30pm EDT) that fixes the Conductor Homer Glitch.  So you should be able to tap away without issue (ie crashing) now. Note: HOMER CRASH ISSUE…..DO NOT TAP ON HOMER ONCE YOU UNLOCK CONDUCTOR HOMER.  You MUST complete more tasks before Homer will work.  So again DO NOT TAP ON HOMER ONCE YOU UNLOCK CONDUCTOR HOMER. (i.e Do not do the Train of Fools Task)  If you do your game will crash…just be patient and wait….the game will guide you, it always does.  I’m working through it myself as fast as I can with super slow internet at work…thankfully it’s on Android now so I hopefully can move a little faster. See below…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s FINALLY here!  After over a year and a half of waiting (remember Homer teased it way back in Jan of 2014) it’s finally Monorail time in Springfield! monorailappstore This is an APP STORE UPDATE so remember to check your App Store/Google Play Store to download, as it will NOT automatically download in your game for you.

As of 12:20pm EDT it’s currently live on iOS, we’ll update when we see it on other devices.

As of 1:05pm EDT it’s currently live on Android.

As of 1:50pm EDT it’s currently live on Kindle Back with more in a bit…just needs to download on my super slow work internet 😉

Homer should auto start things with a task to build the Springfield Dump (which is Free)…after the Dump is placed nothing else will appear in the store until you complete Same As It Ever Was (which comes after A Rail of One City Pt. 4)

2015-08-11 17.12.37 Oh and there’s NEW LAND Available (thanks for pointing it out Tapebelt!) two new strips!  Details are below…. Continue reading

Mono means one and rail means rail

Hey hey hey!

You know, some days I get so caught up in writing on this site that I forget one of the coolest things about it.  Not only am I blessed to have my words and opinions out here for other like-minded tappers to read, but I get to be part of a team that has my back and are people I seriously call friends.  Alissa and Bunny are two people I consider myself so lucky to have in my life.  We don’t really mention it, but other than being bloggers on this amazing site, we all actually talk to each other several times a week by phone, text and/or video and it’s not always conversations about TSTO and The Simpsons.

It was during one of these conversations, that Bunny and I geeked out over future content that might be coming to the game.  The main item discussed was the Springfield Monorail.  We both would love this to come to the game and we seriously hope EA wasn’t just teasing us by mentioning it in game dialogue.
