Hey there Toady Lickin’ Roadies!
With Phase 6 Live in our games now, some changes with it to the Mecha Astley were added. These changes will definitely help you to get further along in the Event, pick up some additional Materials that you will need like Glowsticks & Microphones, as well as drop a ton of Gold Metal Robots all over your town.
Let’s take a peek at the changes and some tips to help you take him down.
WHO IS MECHA ASTLEY?
Well, it is Rick’s Jealous Cousin Marvin inside of the Mechanical Robot of course! Did you not know that? Lol. Apparently he was upstaged at the country club dance and will not forgive Rapper Brian. Brian ruined his life!
CHARACTER ATTACK DAMAGE?
The Damage Amounts have been increased for each of the Players making an Attack on Mecha Astley go a lot further.
WHAT DAMAGE DOES EACH LEVEL NEED?
Let’s take a quick overview of the amount of Damage you will have to inflict on Mecha Astley at each of his Levels.
|Each Additional 5X||20 Hearts|
HOW CAN I DEFEAT HIM?
Now for a lil bit of Math Fun. Wondering how YOU can completely Defeat the Mecha Astley with limited Characters? Here are some hints and tips on just how you can do it. I will list the Level, Mecha Astley Hearts, the time it can possibly take, and the options to do it.
These are not every single possibility, but it will give you an idea of your Options depending on who you have in the game, if your Character is needed elsewhere, and what time you will need to spend to do it.
1X Level: 2 Hearts
Can be easily taken down with ONE Attack by ANY Character above. (4hrs Total)
2X Level: 3 Hearts
If you have Weird Al, easily done with One Character in 4hrs. If you only have Rockstar Peter, it can still be done in 8hrs.
3X Level: 10 Hearts
This one can be done again with just one Character. It will take time… but can be done. Having more than one will cut the time you spend doing it down.
4X Level: 16 Hearts
Here is where you are going to need more than one Character to get by. So unlock Rick as soon as you can if you have not already if you still want to run this Freemium.
5X Level: 20 Hearts
You can see it CAN be done with just Two Characters. You just will have only 4hrs room for error, so you need to be on top of it… or try and start one of them early for the extra hit during Cool Down.
WHAT IF I DON’T MAKE THE 24HR TIMER?
You do have the option to go Premium and buy a Character OR take the “Retry Clam Buy” Option when he cools down after failing (but it HAS to be done while in the 4hr Cool Down before he reset)… or just let him just let him time out and start over again when he resets.
HOW CAN I KEEP ATTACK HIM IN COOL DOWN?
We have offered this tip time and time again in “Boss Battles”.
It essentially breaks down as you need at least TWO Characters Attacking him for this to work. When they are done Attacking after 4 hours… ONLY TAP ONE CHECK MARK AND WAIT. DO NOT CLEAR THE OTHER ONE.
Let me explain. If you have only 1 Heart left on Mecha Astley, you only need 1 Damage to Defeat him. This means that you can leave the SECOND Character Attacking him all during his Cool Down period. If you have more, leave more if you can. This will give you a head start on the next Attack as you can just tap the Check Mark the moment he recovers and the 24hr timer starts again, Then as he starts his countdown, tap and clear that other Check Mark to deliver an immediate blow and then restart the Character.
The reason also for leaving one (or more if you can) Attacking him too is you CAN’T start any new Attacks while he is in Cool Down. The game will not let you. The Tasks will not exist. Attacks have to have been started BEFORE he is Defeated and goes into Cool Down.
So use that last tap just before he is Defeated wisely. Do not waste a Character like Weird Al with a 3 Damage if he only needs 1 Damage done for a final Defeat. Use Peter or Rick instead and leave him to Attack while Mecha Astley sits in Cool Down.
This can help cut 4hrs or MORE of any of the time options above. The more Defeats on him in this last week, the more Glowsticks and other Materials you can access.
WHAT DO I GET IF I DEFEAT HIM?
Here are the payouts as listed in the game Pop Up…
|Each Additional 5X||20 Hearts||15||250||26|
So as you can see, the Higher up you go… the better the Prizes get. Continue up as far as you can as fast as you can.
Here are the Payouts that I got in my game as I cleared each one. I have stayed at the 5X mark since and will continue to stack up my Glowsticks and Gold Robots.
1X- 100 Glowsticks
2X- 100 Glowsticks
3X- 200 Glowsticks
4X- 600 Glowsticks
5X- 2000 Glowsticks
As you can see, my ACTUAL payout on 5x Level was 2000 not just 250. That is 8x the amount listed. I get 2000 every time I continue to take him out at the 5X level.
WHAT DO I NEED GOLD ROBOTS FOR?
WHAT DO I NEED MICROPHONES FOR?
As soon as you Defeat Mecha Astley, the Microphones will appear and then collect to the Spooner Stage. Tapping on the Spooner Stage and selecting any Sideshow Concert will take you to a 2nd screen where you can see your Microphone total in the top right corner.
You will want to collect as many Microphones as you possibly can so you can use them for SideShow Concerts over at the Spooner Stage. Those SideShow Concerts offer a Payout of several Materials needed for several aspects in the game. They will also bring a boost to your Glowsticks. Get as many as you can as quick as you can.
There you have it, an overview of the Mecha Astley and some tips on how to keep Attacking him.
What do you think of it so far? How many times have you Attacked him? What Level are you at? What Prizes have you got? What Attack Combinations are working best for you? Let us know.
