Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The 2016 Sci-Fi Event brought us loads of witty dialogue..with fun twists, turns and a load of laughs!  

While we’ve had the Turbo Tappin’ version of each questline up for all of the questlines for a while now, we thought now would be a fun time to take a look back at all the dialogue and jokes of the freemium questlines of the event.  So if you missed any of the dialogue during the event we’ve got it all here for you!

So let’s get started with the complete dialogue main questline AND Homer Easter Egg walkthroughs for the Sci-Fi Event…stephenhawking_victory_pose_image_24

Sci-Fi 2016 and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Sci-Fi Event released a bunch of new items into our Springfields.  Everything from a hover cards to new fangled Kwik-E-Marts to mushroom towers to evil labs!  So let’s take a look at how these new and items impact our Conform-O-Meter…

The Conform-O-Meter is an important part of Tapped-Out because it provides you with a bonus boost in your cash and  XP from everything you collect in the game.  When you achieve a 5-Star Town (it’s max rating) you will receive a 5% bonus on all money and XP collected in your town.  If you missed the previous Conform-O-Meter posts check here for the basics and here for how many points you’ll need to reach 5 stars.

While the Sci-Fi event brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, it did bring a bunch of buildings and decorations.  So let’s take a look at how all of the new “goodies” impact our rating: Continue reading

Sci-Fi Springfield 101: Crafting Prize Breakdown


Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The nerds have invaded Springfield!  Ok just one nerd, and he’s not all that bad.  And only in Springfield can Professor Frink, with the help of Homer, open up a black hole that transports doppelgangers, robots and Stephen Hawking (!) to our pocket sized Springfields!

Love it or hate it, EA has proven over the last year + that crafting is here to stay.  While the prizes themselves are pretty self explanatory, collect this to earn these prizes, crafting is a whole other “animal”.  Crafting requires some self direction.  You decide what you want and collect the items to craft accordingly.  Sometimes this is successful and sometimes it’s not. And, as with all things, for some events crafting is easier than others.  This event is a combination of a few different techniques we’ve seen in the past (Leveling Up (Casino Event) and 1 Item for Crafting (Superheroes 2) and adds some new dimensions (Future Bucks).

Earlier in Act 1 I broke down how to craft, the details about Future Bucks, Robot Parts, Demos and more.  You can view that post here, especially if you’re confused about Future Bucks.  Now it’s time to break down all of the crafting prizes.  What each does, how many you can get, size and more.  So let’s get to the long awaited crafting prize post….

Sci-Fi Event Has Arrived! (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well the jocks have left, bring on the nerds!  It’s time for the Sci-Fi Event!  EA teased it a few days ago and now it’s here!  So buckle up, hunker down, and get out your app store to download the Sci-Fi Event!

2016-08-16 15.31.31

Right now this is live on iOS, Android and Kindle users you know the drill…

Remember this is a APP STORE update.  So you’ve got to go into your Google Play, Apple App or Kindle Store to see it.  If you don’t see it appear on the “update list” try searching for Tapped Out and see if an update is available.  If you STILL don’t see it, try hard closing the store and restarting your device.

2016-08-16 15.30.09

Also remember, a few weeks ago we let you know that TSTO was no longer going to be compatible on older devices. So if you’re having issues getting the download to work, or seeing compatibility issues, that could be why.  Check out this post for more details.

This will AUTO START for you with some dialogue from Fink and Homer (Lisa too), and you’ll be tasked with building the PolyVac (Free).  You’ll then need Homer free for a 6s Task, followed by another 6s task & another 6s task.  This will start a little more dialogue and eventually the main event stuff will kick in.

Back with more as I play through it… 🙂 Continue reading
