Once It's Not the Heat, It's the Humidity Pt. 6 is completed, the minigame is permanently unlocked. The player will be then prompted to play the minigame for the first time. It has a cooldown time of 8 hours and Homer needs to be free to play it, similarly as it occurs with Maggie and the Where's Maggie? minigame.
The objective of the minigame is to tap as many tortoises as possible in the lapse of 30 seconds. Rewards will be then given to the player depending on the amount of tortoises tapped. The standard rewards are both Cash and XP. For a limited time since its release and until June 22, 2016, the minigame gave Pharmaceuticals as a limited-time reward instead of Cash for those players that completed Springfield Heights Pt. 8. Additionally on each play, there is a chance to obtain a surprise bonus reward, which consists of one unit of a selected group of decorations, such as, Hieroglyph Wall, Pumpkin Patch, Cane Field, and Light-up Elder God.
