Guide[edit | edit source]

Act 1[edit | edit source]

For the first act, the main personal prize currency is Matter (Matter Icon.png) and is won by:

  • Doing the act related quests (33 Matter Icon.png for each task, regardless of the time; also Robo Burns related quest earns Matter too);
  • By sending the alternate Homers and Frank Grimes on 4h jobs at the PolyVac (33 Matter Icon.png for each Homer; 66 Matter Icon.png for Frank Grimes);
  • By playing the Polyvac minigame;
  • By tapping robots, scattered all over town (1 Matter Icon.png per robot, and 2 Matter Icon.png per robot on friends springfields; occasionally, the Cube (Anomaly) is visible in friends springfields; it pays 5 Matter Icon.png and 1 Robot Parts Icon.png).

The PolyVac minigame can be played every 4 hours, and the main objective is to protect the PolyVac from the oncoming hordes of robots for 20 seconds. On the first act, every robot takes only one tap to be destroyed. The PolyVac can take only 5 hits before being destroyed for the next 4 hours. If the player is having troubles tapping the robots, he/she can use a flash that destroys every robot on-screen. 5 flashes are automatically awarded, and more can be obtained by buying them at the store or by, every 24 hours, collecting them at the Control Building. Starting this minigame automatically destroys every robot present on Springfield.

Like usual, this event also brings crafting, although with some new stuff. First, there is only 2 crafting currencies for the entire event, Future Bucks (Future Bucks Icon.png) and Robot Parts (Robot Parts Icon.png). Second, levels of crafting returned from the Burns' Casino 2016 Event, with some tweaks. Now, crafting items (with Robot Parts only) also count towards the progress to the next level. For example, to pass from Level 1 to Level 2 it is needed 600 Robot Parts Icon.png. To pass to the next level the player can spend the 600 Robot Parts on various crafting items or spend them whole to pass instantly to next level. Every item has a demo number associated with it, that goes from 1 to 11. A demo number is the number of times an item can be crafted with Robot Parts. Once the demo limit is reached the item can only be crafted with Future Bucks. Crafting an item with Future Bucks doesn't help with the level progress.
