In-Game Update: Phineas, Barnaby & Steroid Stewie!

Hello There Clammers!

Out with the animals and in with the meatheads!  Phinease, Barnaby & Steroid Stewie have arrived in Quahog!

2015-01-21 20.23.08

More details as we go through them…
Details below the fold…

NOTE: TIMED EVENT.  You will have 5 days to unlock both Phineas and Barnaby once you build.  Also note that the event ends on January 27th…so make sure you build BEFORE the event ends. 

UPDATE BUNNY: Here are some Clarifications on things we are seeing asked…

1: Is Rupert Event Only? YES! He will go with the Event, so make sure you get him before the Event ends on the 27th.

2: Completed Character Collection but don’t see my 100 Clams? There will not be a Clam icon in the game when this completes. Sometimes it takes a lil bit for your game to sync. If you don’t see them added to your total, Force Close your game and check your Clam count again. Facespace will show the checkmark that it is complete if the Clams were added.

3: Will I have 5 full days to complete the Characters once the buildings are placed? YES!! As long as the buildings are purchased and in your Quahog, you will still have the full 5 days to unlock Phineas & Barnaby. So make sure you have those buildings placed BEFORE the event ends on the 27th.

4: How far in the game do I need to be to see the Event? You just need to have Bruce unlocked (District 2) in order to see it.

5: What are your thoughts on unlocking BOTH at the same time? There are benefits to both sides. On one side, it is simpler to not stack Characters and be able to focus on collection for one at a time. On the other side, the Bike Shoppe DOES help drop Steaks… so there is that. 😉


 

First, let me note that Rupert is back!  You can pick him up for 250 Clams (and the Bare Tanning Salon)…

tanningsalon Human Rupert

 

Rupert will help you get Phineas and Barnaby…so he’s not a bad investment if you don’t already have him!

  11. I’ve noticed several times that some of the fat joggers did not drop an item. Is that expected? Also, I have two games going, so for example before bed I’ll check one then check the other and let my characters do actions while I’m sleeping. When I check my games in the morning, I’ve noticed that the fat Joggers in the game where I’m a level 50 are far more abundant than in the game where I’m a level 27. Is this expected?

    • They are a “chance” drop… so yes… normal.

      Yes, spawn rates vary by players gaming levels and also can vary by your game play, items purchased, etc. Also, it can take a minute or two for them joggers to spawn into a town. There are times mine are delayed… then POOOOF… town full of them.

  14. Just about done with both characters but need about 3 more enhancers for the one that had 80 barbells. What I want to know is why the joggers still spawn? They could at least give money. I also agree that these enhancers are taking way to long while the extra rare stuff flew out. Of course I had buildings for help on eggs, steak, and joggers.

    Advice to all: Never leave your iPad out with sneaky kids when you are sick. I’m hoped up on meds and my cousin stops by with her niece and nephew. He takes my finger and unlocks the iPad while I’m sleeping and finds the game. His mom soooo owes me a clam pack. Though he did a decent job of moving the play along other than that.

  16. I’m enjoying this mini event & loving that the extra rare steak & eggs don’t actually seem so rare since there’s so many joggers! Its taking me longer to get the performance enhancers since I only have Bonnie and Lois earning those but I’ll think I’ll be done within the next two days, at the latest.

  17. Maybe I’ve just been lucky on drops, but I’ve got both characters 90% unlocked with 3 and a half day left on the timer, and without spending a single clam. Rupert and Steroid Stewie do look tempting, but they’re a bit expensive to my tastes. Already way overspent on Cleveland just a few weeks ago.

    • You’re probably further away from finishing than you think you are. Both characters require some of the same items. Once you unlock the first character, he will use those items up and you’ll still need to collect the items again for second guy.

  18. When I did this update I got this glitch that causes me to miss the jokes. When I complete a task that’s part of a quest line all the speech bubbles pop up at once and I only see the last one so I only get the punchlines. Please pass on the info to tinyco, thanks.

  20. I have to say, I’m enjoying these surprise mini-events from TinyCo 🙂 I didn’t purchase NYE Brian (it was a tough decision but I’ve learned to use my clams wisely bc never know what TinyCo will spring on us lol), and out of the three animals I only bought Jesse, but I did buy Steroid Stewie right away. I liked that episode and was hoping we’d see the skin at some point! Plus I had Human Rupert from a previous event. So far I’ve unlocked Phineas (already level 3), and almost got Barnaby. Only need 10 more weights and 3 performance enhancers. I did purchase Bulge but not any premium buildings that help with drops. I’ve been very lucky with the drops, especially steaks and eggs from joggers.

  21. I hate to say it, but I used clams to unlocked Phineas, but it was only 25 clams worth. 😦

    Still, at least I got him. The drop rate on the Eggs is embrassing.

    I had to complain to Tiny Co. Because I keep on clicking on the overweight characters and some of them don’t drop anything at all.

    Has anyone else run into this problem or is it just me ? 😦

    Like

    • If I’m not mistaken, the drop rate for the weights is ‘common’ but not ‘always’ (or whatever they call it) so the joggers won’t always drop something. I’ve seen this in my town but I assumed it was working as intended.

  25. i love that you can do both guys at once, one needs i think 60 items of one thing and the other 80. i already had 25 before i unlocked the 2nd guy and he started with 25 since i’d already collected them for the first one. it works the same for the syringes too. so the beauty part, once i’ve collected the 60 i’ll just need 20 more for the 2nd guy. instead of needing 80 if i had waited before unlocking him.

  27. I found out that you can still get the Old Timey Bike Shoppe without starting Barnaby’s 5 day timer. Just Build the building, tap the building check mark when done but DO NOT TAP Barnaby with the 1 unlock bubble icon until you want to start the time. Item’s won’t drop such as the eggs until you tap him which then shows the required items bubbles in addition to the unlock bubble. Just careful not to tap him when tapping the Bike Shoppe for drops.

Just want to be sure they’re actually enabled / functioning correctly and mine have just been unlucky, thus far.

    • That’s fine. We understand venting. I think it is in the way you word it maybe. We are really just trying to help. We want people to give things a chance, see how they play out, not judge them within the first hours. It is a different style of gaming many are not used to or may not like. So we try to offer some insight and help people to see through all the instant impulses. This game really does have some fun elements when you give it a chance. Just want others to enjoy it for the fun side too. 🙂

  41. No clams used and I just finished the first guy in under 24 hours! Now on to the next. Really great event so far. The free stuff seems very achievable for all and i enjoy the fact that the event is a bit interactive: tapping and collecting from people running around (like with Bitch Stewie). Pretty fun! 🙂

    Only slight issue i have is that Stewie skin. I have no problem that it costs clams, but 200!?!? That’s seems a bit absurd. Something in the 100 to 150 for a limited time skin seems much more fair. Especially since their clam price for new CHARACTERS tends to also be 200 (like during Halloween and Xmas events).

    It’s like Tiny Co knows we all love Stewie so we just HAVE to buy him all roided up lol. But I guess i will just pass on him like i did tux brian. Just not worth the clams for me personally 🙂

  43. I have held off starting the event until I can spend some time on it. However, from reviewing this information I am confused. I would prefer to run these separate to keep me with something to do, but I don’t think this is possible without clam buildings or Rupert (who I don’t have). In order to spawn female joggers you need to have completed Pt 3 of the questline which means you have built both buildings (Pt 1 — The Sweaty Clam [Phineas]; Pt 3 — The Old Timey Bike Shoppe [Barnaby]) and started the timer on each. You need female joggers for steaks for Phineas so you have to complete Pt 3 to spawn female joggers meaning you are now working on both characters. Do I have the correct? Plus, the steaks for Phineas are dropped from the building for Barnaby (The Old Timey Bike Shoppe) and the eggs for Barnaby are dropped from the building for Phineas (The Sweaty Clam). So if you want to do this strictly freemium, you have to run them parallel. Can someone confirm that this is true? Thank you.

    Like

    • The two characters help each other. They are set up as a balance. Items drop from their buildings that help the opposite Character. So… it is beneficial in the long run to have them going side by side. And don’t let the drops discourage you… the items are dropping fast and in an abundance. I think it is definitely possible with NO clam purchases.

      Like

      • Thanks Bunny. I kind of see it that way as well. Good strategy by TinyCo (as per usual). Running them separately without assistance from premium items (Rupert, clam buildings) would be very laborious and maybe even impossible. Gotta run them together. Looking forward to it!

  46. Are the joggers supposed to drop the weights all the time? I know sometimes it’s a steak or eggs but I’ve had some not drop anything. If that’s how it’s supposed to be that’s fine. I just wanted to make sure it wasn’t a glitch or something I should report to Tiny Co.

    Like

  47. I’m going to be positive for once – bear with me, I’m new to this.

    I would just like to let TinyCo know how nice it is just to clear the joggers by tapping on them. Not sending anybody on a 2 hour task… not herding them for bombing with some missile launcher or another… JUST simply tapping on them. It’s such a relief that it’s so simple.

    I accidentally built both buildings without realising I was on a 5 day timer, but I’m not far enough yet to have worked out if I’m going to struggle. I have 57/140 weights, so I think they’ll be fine. 5/10 steaks, 3/12 needles but I think they’ll be okay if I keep using Steroid Stewie… The eggs are making me nervous (which is not a sentence I expected to use today) but there’s still plenty of time left so we’ll see how it goes.

    Glad to get Human Rupert that I missed last time too, and I got a bunch of clams back for completing the set so that was nice.

    In the meantime, the Brewery is ticking along nicely, with only the lack of Skis holding things up. I know they’re “tap handles” but to me they look like skis so I call them skis. Now I feel I’ve used the word “skis” too much. Skis. I can’t stop. Skis. Skiiiiiiis. Can’t wait to upgrade the Brewery to the Fear Portal so I can start getting those band members 😉
