THOH XXVIII Act 1 is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that Act 1 of the Halloween/THOH/Magical Event/Angelica Button Event/Harry Potter Event…whatever the heck you wanna call it…Ends TOMORROW October 17th at 0800 GMT (4am ET).

Once the Act 1 is over you will no longer be able to earn Wand Prizes for free. So get everything you can before it’s all gone! (but remember to keep earning wands if you haven’t unlocked all of the prizes because the closer you get to unlocking the next prize the lower the donut cost would be should you need to purchase it when the next Act starts…)

Crafting will STILL be available in the next Act  As will the Goblin Gold you’ve accumulated.

For a rundown on everything that was included with Act 1 check out our rundown post here.

Be ready for the Act 2 to start bright and early at 0800 GMT (4am ET) tomorrow morning  (October 17th)….

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So seeing a number of questions in the comments asking which characters can Trick-or-Treat and which characters can battle Giant Monsters.  So now that a new Act has launched, and new tasks have unlocked, I figured now’s the best time to lay down a comprehensive list.

So here’s the breakdown of kids who can Trick-or-Treat and Adults who can Battle Giant Monsters….

Feral Monsters Evolve Again!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

As some of you have noticed…your Feral Monsters (aka Rats) have evolved yet again this morning. All that RedBull must have made them hungry because they’ve plumped up..and now they’re HANGRY for more…

charactersets_feralbeast03Clearing these winged creatures requires FOUR taps.  Quadruple the taps also means, quadruple the currency!  These Plumped Up Flying Ferals will earn you 10ico_cur_thoh2016_clapboard_lg each time you tap them…so 40 ico_cur_thoh2016_clapboard_lg each when you clear them.

Pretty sweet right?

Note the new Feral Monsters always fly…they don’t crawl around on the ground. 

2016-10-27-11-19-27

The smaller Winged Monsters are still around as well…

feralbeast02_defeated_image_2

Remember this guys take 2 taps to clear and earn 10ico_cur_thoh2016_clapboard_lg each tap.

So winged earns 20ico_cur_thoh2016_clapboard_lg when cleared
Giant Winged, earn 40ico_cur_thoh2016_clapboard_lg when cleared.

Oh and the original Feral Monsters…well what’s the old saying?  Evolve or die?  Yea…they’re not around anymore…

charactersets_feralbeast01

So all Feral Monsters now require multiple taps…

Happy Monster Clearing!

Addicts Question Corner: THOH Act 1 Part 2…Clarifications and Help

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So we’ve been in the THOH Event Act 1 for just over a week now and we’ve written and posted LOADS of posts about the Event.  Yet we’re still seeing many, MANY, of you asking the same questions over and over in the comments.   So it seems that some of you are either still confused, not reading the posts and just asking questions or not finding the right post that answers your question.  Which naturally means it’s the perfect time for another Addicts Question Corner!  (the second one for Act 1)

So…if you’re stuck somewhere, seeing something strange or just not sure what’s going on read this post first.  If you don’t see the help then ask your question.  I’m going to try and address every major question we’re seeing in this one post.  So hopefully this will help those that are still stuck/confused out.

Let’s get to it, shall we?

THOH 2015 Halloween Event is Live!

UPDATE BUNNY: I see many of you concerned on your S’mores counts in your game. I just wanted to clarify something for you… it is AS INTENDED. 😉

Basically the game is showing you ONLY the countdown for that particular item you are earning for. NOT the total amount you have collected to date. I think this is a way of letting you know just how close you are to gettting that particular prize. The total amount will still show on your S’mores counter in the Lower Left Corner, but when in the actual Act 1 Prize Screen, just the amount for the current item you are on will show.

Example:
Crafting Resources: /180
Spooky Cabin: /360
Pirate Kang: /1620
Model Donut: /2880
Gate to Nowhere: /4230

Another side note, watch WHO tells the story and the Nightmare needed to Upgrade. If you need Zombies, Martin has to tell a story to swap the spawn back to Zombies. Lisa Snakes… etc. Make sure you are spawning the RIGHT item out of the Campfire. (See turbo tappin for each Story release)


PART 3 BART TELL STORIES BUG ALERT: The patch has been released to fix this issue.  

I have NOT been able to duplicate this in my game, but Bunny was able to.  When you get to part 3 you’ll have to send Bart to tell Spooky Stories AND you’ll have to send 4 youngsters to listen to Spooky Stories.  This is a suggestion we received from a reader in the comments who tried it on their A and B game: Send Bart FIRST (and send him via the Campfire, don’t use the Do it option on the task book.  Send him direct from the Campfire) and let that task finish BEFORE sending the youngsters.  Clear Bart’s task and then send the 4 youngsters.  This should get you past it.  So send Bart alone and let him finish the task.  Then send the kids to listen.  If you don’t there’s a good chance it’ll lock up on you.

If you’ve already had the game lockup on you, unfortunately there’s no “quick fix” for it.  You will have to contact EA to get them to clear it for you.  At this point don’t try contacting them (although you can still use the forum thread linked below).  They are aware of the situation and a patch is coming.  It’s not necessary to spend the time and energy dealing with EA right now because they’ll just tell you to wait for a patch.

Also, there’s an EA forum link for this here:

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Live!  If you’ve downloaded the iOS Update earlier you’ll just get the downloading updates screen, like when you see an in game update.

It’s out on iOS and Kindle…but I still don’t see anything on Android.  I’ll keep an eye out though. and on Android (if you don’t see it on your list of apps to update, search the store for The Simpsons Tapped Out, should show update there)

It will Auto-Start with some dialogue from Homer followed by tasks for Lisa and Bart.  

As always we’ll be back with more in a bit…

Remember…this is a APP STORE UPDATE.  So you will need to download the latest version of TSTO from your App Store BEFORE you can see this.  You’ll know you’re on the latest version because the splash screen and icon will change.  I know inevitably there will be people saying the game didn’t tell them to update, so they’re behind.  CHECK YOUR APP STORE!

P.S. The unemployment office is currently having issues.  Don’t worry about it for right now…it’s either event related or their attempt to fix it. Continue reading
