DEATH AT THE DRIVE-IN PHASE 5 IS HERE!!!

EVENT ENDS THURSDAY NOVEMBER 12TH @3PM PACIFIC

Hookhand Albert Death's Mom

  • First up, you will have to be on Part 10 of Return of Death at the Drive-in
  • You will need to be at Scream Level 14 or Higher
  • Play the New Event Phase Questline to access ALL Content. With every new Event Phase there are “unlock points” for many items, so play through the Main Questline in order to see it all. I will Update Unlock points. if any, as I find them.
  • Make sure you go to the App Market and check for any Updates so you are on the latest Version of the game. (Google Plays last Update was 10/26, Version 1.13.7

WARNING: There is another 24hr Timed Item in the Movie Projection Booth. This time it will be Hookhand Albert. Same kind of trigger point that the items BEFORE it once created will make it so the timer will start on the next tap in Booth.

 


KNOWN ISSUE: There will be TWO Versions of Hookhand Albert, similar to the Slasher Cat. One will be an actual Character in the Booth you can unlock, the other an NPC that you will take down similar to the Horrors like Horsemen, Clowns, etc. The NPC Version of Hookhand Albert will be attacked using Magnets. A total of 4 will be needed to clear his 400HP. The issue is that when attacked, it does not seem like the item hit its target, but it did. The easiest way to tell is make sure he is in the Kill Zone before you fire, then check the the HP to see if it is less than 400 and goes down from there. Patch for this will be out soon, so hang tight for the visual animation he was hit. Remember, check HP to see if it has dropped with the hits.

 

Back with more in a bit…

  2. I upgraded the movie projector to phase 5 but still I’m still on phase 4 part 6 quest line. With 4 days left in this event should I even bother to try and get the reels for Death’s Mom? Also, would I be able to place her in the game since I’m still technically in phase 4? And last question, if I can’t get her unlocked before the event ends will I lose her and the store she comes with?

I’ve yet to have them both drop a spatula at the same time. Which is strange for a common drop. I Have collected everything else…

  12. Bit annoying that I played through all the reel options listed in the post… and then three out of four of the next options need ice cream as well! Does anyone know if it ever gets to stage where there are lots of options for reels that require different materials other than ice cream?
    For the first time in the event I have managed to actually save up soda and chocolate as there is nothing to spend them on! Magnets are dropping ok but can still only get enough for around 40-60 reels per day.

  13. Just wondering, are you going to try collecting for Hook Hand? I missed Slasher Cat cause I was “tricked” so I’m definitely not getting the clam bonus for unlocking all 4 but now Albert’s on deck and I’m sure Maniac Priest next… I’m right where I can start collecting for Albert so maybe I can pull it off but I haven’t been behind in the event at all so… that would be my dilemma. I guess when the movie changes it will depend on how close I am to getting Albert. Def not buying him tho…

  14. Reels are my big holdup this phase (or maybe that should be ice-creams to get reels) each time I use the 25 IC to 20 reels it will give me one more option using one of the previous (soda, popcorn, chocolate) use that and I’m straight back to just the 25 IC for 20.

    I’ve gone from 100+ reels a day in the previous phase to 50 at a push 70 a day since all I can manage is one IC and one other trade in since so few things earn magnets.

    Like

    • Yeah, kind of feel stymied by the start of this phase since reels cashing always needs ice cream and the magnets are so hard to come by. I messed up because I raced through Week 4 quest line before the extension was announced because I wanted as much time as possible for the final week’s content since there were three characters still left to enter our games (Death’s Mom, Hook Hand and Maniac Pope). I have tons of concessions that are sitting idle that I wish I had cashed in before starting the newest content. I hope the options start showing without always having to have ice cream or some more tasks are added or drops become “always”. If you are lucky, you can get eight magnets to drop over 12 hours with Pet Costume Shop, Death, Peter and Lois working on it. If you haven’t launched week five content, cash in as many concessions as possible before you do or they will just sit and stare at you every time you go into the concession stand.

      Anyone who is further along than I, is there an increase of options using all the concessions like it was toward the end of Week Four? I know it is different in every game but I need some hope!

      • I’ve had nothing but ice cream by itself or ice cream plus something else ever since this phase started. I’m still 40 reels from deaths mothers house despite starting phase 5 early Saturday morning. I’m averaging 40 reels per day in this new phase. (if I pay clams to help it I can get 8 magnets in a day so 2 reel trades per day at 20 reels each (since that’s the only offers I’ve had so far!) At this rate I’m really just hoping to get deaths mom and be done with this event. I haven’t had one single time so far this week where an item such as Popcorn, soda or chocolate is used by itself always with a minimum of 15 ice creams plus something else. Meanwhile hundreds of unused items just staring me in the face.

  19. I must also say how great it is to also have the “Cheesie Charlie’s” building in the game. I know that is based on the American “Chuck E. Cheese’s” (I have seen the commercials on TV numerous times during my few visits to America). Also, the building is seen in one of my favourite Family Guy episodes – “Chitty Chitty Death Bang”.

    However, the reason I find it so great is because in the late 80’s, there was a “Charlie Cheese’s” in Australia (located in Surfer’s Paradise, Queensland). I think it might have been the same as the American version (although I have never been to an American one), except with a name change. I heard that the name change was because “chuck” means to throw up in Australia (although I cannot confirm if this is the real reason or not). The Charlie Cheese’s in Australia did not last very long though (only a few years I think). Very few people seem to even remember that we ever had one. I remember my parents taking me there when I was a very young kid. They actually won me a Charlie Cheese soft toy (which I still have to this day and plan to keep it, as it is an extremely rare find now). It is one of the few things I still have left from my childhood (I have had it for well over 20 years now). The Cheesie Charlie character which is seen on the building in this game looks almost identical (except for the crown) to this Charlie Cheese soft toy and of course, even shares almost the exact same name as well! So thanks TinyCo for adding this building to our games!

    • That’s an awesome back story on it. FYI “chuck” means throwing up in America too… just not used as widely. Like “up chuck”…heard that a lot as a kid.

      • It is kind of hard to find much information on “Charlie Cheese’s” that was located in Australia. When I did a web search for it a few years back (to see what the difference between “Chuck E. Cheese’s” and “Charlie Cheese’s” was), a website that I came across mentioned the reason for the name change. I had not heard that being the reason before. 🙂

  20. So from my first 3 rounds of trying to get magnets I ended up with:

    Round 1 – 3 out of 4
    Round 2 – 2 out of 4
    Round 3 – 2 out of 4

    So I would say it’s dropping better than rare but still not good and more annoyingly that’s only 7 total so another 4 hour wait to try and start reel earning again.

    It’s like a cruel joke from TC to make the first reel trade in 25 Ice Creams. It’s basically cost me a whole day of my timer on Ruth.

    Like

    • I was thinking exactly the same. Need another 100 reels for the worcestershire mansion and was saving up chocolatr for 40 reels. But now need 8 magnets to be able to get enough ice cream to get any reels. I know the options will open up again afterwards, but with the Ruth timer ticking and the mansion required to get her (tho I will probably just pay 25 clams)… It would be nice if you could keep the other reel options and trade in ice cream when you are ready.
      I guess I will just continue collecting choc and soda so that I can hopefully get a good start after I get enough ice cream to trade in once.

  21. Bunny, do you think TinyCo has been planning for there to be a week 6 all along, considering the booth is advertising a movie with the maniac pope?

    Like

    • Nope. With as little as they have going on this week, I think they broke it up into two. This week is… well… weak with content compared to every other Phase thus far.

      Every Game House I have known to date HATES extensions. It really throws off their entire year. The “Domino” Effect. Delay here creates delay on next release, which delays next one, which creates a need to change pre-planned and coded setup due to the shorter time allotted now, and on n on n on n on.

      It also can damage their rep to the outside sources (like pulling in copyrighted characters to put in the game) as there are legal contracts in place for those and if they don’t follow those, that can cost them money and possible future additions to the game.

      Like

      • Weak? Sorry Bunny but I have to disagree. Death’s Mom is near impossible to unlock with the super long quest times and poor drop rates and we’ve all been feeling the hit on the magnet situation which in turn has slowed reel making to a crawl since you have to get a minimum ice creams and then only get one chance after to use other items that we now have tons of before right back to waiting for poor drop magnets. For me anyways I’d say this week is starting out as one of the harder ones to get going.

        • Come on now, no need to pick apart what I said and make assumptions. I did not say ANYTHING about difficulty now did I? I said the content was Weak, which is correct and accurate. “This week is… well… weak with content compared to every other Phase thus far”. VERY correct. 2 Buildings? No Decorations? Still missing Stewie’s Mystery Box? So in short… weak content. I get people don’t like the Reel exchange or the Booth items. But to turn every comment or post made into a place to vent about them is not appropriate, don’t you think? The Event is ONE day old. One. Give it time to break into it. It won’t be instant. The first part will take a bit, yes. No one is arguing that. Including myself, but it was not even a part of the point I was making.

          So please appreciate my information and what I ACTUALLY said instead of taking it as offense to something it had absolutely nothing to do with. 😉

With all the issues that everyone has been having I think a lot of us were hoping Tinyco was going to take it easy on us this week. I would agree with you that they have in the content area but seem to have countered it with reel and character unlock difficulty. But you are correct it it only one day old and in general I have enjoyed this event with a couple of hiccups a long the way. Again my apologies and I hope we’re still friends! 😉

              Like I said. I get people are frustrated. I’ve been very vocal and in deep discussion with them regarding Reels, Booth, and Props. So I do get it as it impacts my game play too.

              Just try to not vent on every post or comment and keep the anger to one place so I can direct them to that one spot and say “this is where you need to go to see verbatim what’s being said”.

              Overall it just makes it easier for all of us to do so and allows me to focus more on help than anger. But know I really do understand the tensions this Event. Trust me I really do. My pocket book feels it. Lol. 😉

              I also do see changes to help us as Players going into effect. Subtle but they’re there. And so far Phase 4 and 5 went a lot smoother for me.

      Actually they changed it so that you need to unlock Death’s Mom before the challenge shows up. I have already unlocked her and when I did the challenge showed up. Btw I didn’t use any clams to unlock her. I got lucky and everything dropped for me in a timely manner.

    First, I like the new format but can you move the comment box back up above the comments so we don’t have to scroll through everything to post?
    Second, I’ve been seeing people talk about using Death’s mother and clearing cars. In assuming that they all bought her? Impossible to earn all her stuff in a day.
    Lastly, why would they make the magnets a chance and not always drop? Just went 2 for 4 on the possible ways I have to earn them and now have to wait another 4 hours to try again. I would just like to get the ice creams going. I messaged Tinyco and I’m sure I’ll get the standard dropping as intended reply but just commenting on a frustration.

  26. I just don’t understand how people are raking in the reels – seriously, everything takes 45m to 90m to produce – I’m running things 24hrs a day and am barely scraping by to get the regular things in the booth.. 750 movie reels would take me about a month to get.. I just don’t get how freemium people can do this – in my opinion they can’t!

    • This is my suggestion and has been most this Event, that last item… look at it as a PREMIUM item. Something that you will most likely have to spend Clams to get. Then decide if it is really worth it to you to get that item. What would you be OK using to get it? Would you really be happy months from now with it?

      Most people save up their Materials for a while, few days even, then go after the Reel options. Usually getting the “main” item first helps to trigger other ones for the additional materials to appear.

    • I’m still in week 4 (waiting on reels) so I did some math at what the average payouts were in the movie booth:
      If you make just crossbows all day you’ll get roughly 34 reels per day.
      If you make just silver cannons all day you’ll get roughly 102 reels per day.
      If you make just pumpkin launchers all day you’ll get roughly 48 reels per day.
      If you make clown cannons all day you’ll get roughly 69 reels per day.

      I’m level 13, week 4 and those are what I can earn (with 24 hour non stop playing). I suspect it’s close for everyone else too. If I can get around 75 reels a day I can be in stage 5 in 3 days which isn’t terrible all things considered.
      As long as the booth is taking soda, keep grinding it as it’s way more efficient than anything else.

  27. Please be SUPER careful when it comes to the Movie Projection Booth! As you have pointed out many times Bunny, any tap on the booth (after claiming the second last item on each page) will cause the 24 hour timer to begin. I started this phase having enough reels to get every prize up until Hook Hand Albert (which I knew would be timed, so I left it alone).

    Whenever I start the game, it is always zoomed in on the Griffin house (and I always have to zoom back out). The thing is that I have always thought that the Movie Projection Booth was way too close behind their house, so I have tried to be extra careful. Tonight when I started the game and tried to zoom out, as per usual, my iPad froze for a second. When it unfroze, I was horrified to see that it had instead registered me as having tapped the booth and the timer had begun!! I just wanted to say to please be extra careful if you try to zoom out when the game starts up. Luckily I still have over 600 reels (but I might still need to spend another 200 – 400 clams if I hope to have enough reels within the 24 hours, better than the full clam price of 3000 though).

    • You do know that you can move the Griffen house away from the movie screen right?
      Your advice to be very careful about tapping the movie screen is good advice,, but better advice would be for people to not have anything that they would be tapping on near the projection screen to avoid what happened to you.

  28. I was able to launch the new content and my concession stand changed to needing 20 ice creams. I am still working on the last two items in the prop shack to finish off Ruth from last week. Forcing the timer for Ruth in last week’s quest line was bad enough, but now my ability to craft reels is halted until I can get these ice creams. I hope the conversions are more favorable with this content, especially since 750 reels are needed for the last item.

  30. Hey guys just coming in to ask any people who are able to go on these “shopping sprees” with their reels, how did you get reels quick enough to do this (did you spend clams, find some strategy, etc)? Because i play quite frequently (almost every hour) and im still stuck trying to unlock patrick because from week 2 the stupid projection booth kept me back. Also out of the things that can expire in the pb i was only able to get slasher cat and had to skip the rest; plus im still stuggling to get enough reels.

    • I let them collect a while. All the materials. Then I clear the main one first (like ice cream in 5) which keeps opening other options then pick vest option trades til I’m depleted again

      • Bunny, I have the same question. I am doing the same — collecting a bunch of materials then cashing them all in at once and selecting the best options to cash in. But I can only generate so many materials in the crafting stage over 24 hours. Am I missing something or are people clam-rushing tasks to generate more materials in the concession booth? That is the only thing that makes sense or I have been playing this event completely wrong. I launched the newest content this morning so I would say I am about 12 hours behind, but I am depleted of reels and need to start the climb again. Thanks!

        • Those that bought the Material Generating Clam Food Characters will get Materials quicker. So just go at a speed that best fits your personal playing style.

          • I never even look at those but they would seem to have been a good investment. Even one of them. Usually those premium items are a good, short boost to jump start new content. But you can usually catch up and go without them over time. But in this case, having even one of those items being constantly generated apart from the crafting element would have been a huge asset. I definitely learned something for the future.

  31. I have completed return of death at the drive in part 10 and I’m close to finishing scream lvl 15, but the Revenge of the scythe part 1 still hasn’t appeared to me. Am i supposed to do something else? Is it a problem from them? Does anyone know please?

  32. Lol I’m so far behind. And i play pretty much hourly during waking hours.
    Still need 130 reels for the Worcester mansion and only just started Ruth’s timer.
    Reels are the biggest mistake on this event. Far too many required and it’s impossible to get them quick enough. If I play hourly and am still hundreds of reels short it’s totally messed up ;(

  33. All I can say is thank god they added the extra week.

    4 magnets needed with only 4 freemium ways to get them and a rare drop meaning the chance of getting enough in one try is slim to none. That wold then make a minimum of 9 hours to take down one HHA and of course they make him only drop 20 when you need 25 to get the first lot of reels. So it’s likely a minimum 12-16 hours before I can get any reels again.

    Satan still didn’t appeared to me, probably is bound to a certain point of the main quest, but I sure will take him! Jesus needs his pair

  35. Does anyone else think it’s odd that the magnets are rare when every other prop item is ALWAYS? That’s going to cause a nasty bottleneck.

  36. It seems like the prop shop capacity doesn’t matter much with so many villans requiring multiple hits. I love having clowns running around that are 50 hp each because I already hit them twice. Then when an exchange for red candies comes up, I can clear all my clowns out quickly. Same goes for horsemen. Will see how these ice creams go, but it will probably be similar. Why buy extra capacity when the game provides plenty of ways to use this stuff?

    I’m excited to have Satan. I wonder what could be coming next week that’s better than this??

    I like the new format of your posts. Keep up the good work! It’s much appreciated.

  43. I already had Satan from the mini event, could not resist the doggie hell task! Nice to see them use a previous premium for needed materials!

    I wish I was one of those folks who had a ton of reels saved up, but I was not, but at least I had enough to get death’s mom placed, so I could start collecting on it! Nice to see that they decided to make the production of the magnets reasonably timed, even if they were rare! Kind of leery about the upcoming possessed cars, but hopefully they won’t be too difficult! *chuckle*

    • Not really understanding why for the first time in the event items needed to whack a character are not an “always” drop. Rare??

    • You were one of the lucky ones, I would say, even if you don’t see it. I thought I was on track and not behind and got over with zero movie reels as I used the last ones placing the mansion so I can finish Ruth. It will probably take a couple of days before I have enough reels for the mum.

  44. well this is the part where i’m most likely NOT going to make it and/or complete the rest,just like the ending of Star Trek event i missed out on because of me being so far behind. i’m only able to concentrate on unlocking Patrick and Ruth since i’ve literally JUST STARTED them yesterday so i’m thinking they’ll probably take me until the last couple days…i’m skipping out on Satan again as well. none of the premium characters so far weren’t really interesting to me to purchase the clams jus yet and in all honesty i really can’t afford it during this time. I hope everyone is having a funn time playin just as i somewhat am still tehee!😘😄😛😉

  45. I see that there is still another (the Apocalyptic) movie to come. I wonder if this is why they decided to extend the event? I know some people were hoping that the extension was so they could catch up.

    I also hope that the concession stand will continue to offer reasonable options this phase and not revert back to the payouts (that I shall not speak of) from the first few weeks. Phase 4 payouts were the perfect amount, please stick to that TinyCo!

    Also, no new items / decorations / skins for 3D glasses yet? Hopefully there may be more on the way.

  46. This is weird in the movie projection booth it shows that the Dungeon of Basilisk is 125 reels while when clicking the shopping cart is shows it as a 100. So not sure what the price is. Same with Charlie seems 80 in the booth but 45 in the cart.

  50. I just made the mistake of starting the new film before having enough reels to place the last building (Mansion). Should have realised that all of those exchange options for popcorn and soda would be gone until I use the new concession (ice cream) once. With the magnets dropping as rare, and the need for 4 to clear one Hook Albert that might take a while.

    Oops.

    At least they only take 15 minutes to craft.
