Hey there Hippity Hoppity’s!
With all the New Items hitting our Event, it can be difficult to know where to start or where to go to gain the Items & Materials we need throughout the Event. That is where the 101’s come in.
In this post, I will be going over the “Bad Guy” Sam. How to attack him, how to defeat him, and all you will need to know in between.
Let’s take a closer look at this cute lil hopping Green Guy.
WHEN DO THE SAMS APPEAR?
You will trigger them during Dream On Pt. 2. The Questline will direct you to them.
WHERE DO THE SAM’S COME FROM?
They are released out of the Clock Tower in the Event Area. If you want to see when the next Spawn Time is for more to appear in your game, just tap on the Clock Tower.
WHAT IS THE SAM’S SPAWN TIME?
In the lower half of the Pop Up from the Clock Tower you will see the countdown timer for the Sam’s Spawn and a Clam Cost if you want to speed it up and make more appear right now.
Sam Spawn Time/Amount: Per my game, it looks like 3 Sam’s Spawn out of the Clock Tower every 2hrs.
WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO CLEAR A SAM?
The Various Q* Sprites. Sprites do Damage to the Sam’s Heart Meters with each Attack. Each Sam hopping around your game start out with a 20 Heart Meter. Sam’s Heart Meter that must be drained to Zero in order to completely Clear them. You can tap on them to find out what their current Heart Meter is at if you are unsure if you attacked them before.
Basically, you attack them with Sprites until you have attacked with a total of at least 20 Damage.
WHAT DAMAGE DOES EACH SPRITE DO TO A SAM?
Here are each of the current 3 Sprites available and the amount of Damage each one does to Sam’s.
Q*bert: 8 Damage
Q*tee: 12 Damage
Q*zard: 20 Damage
WHERE DO I GET SPRITES?
From the Presents you Open in the Present Plaza (like the Pyramid Packs). You can find more information on the Present Plaza and Pyramid Packs HERE.
HOW TO ATTACK AND CLEAR A SAM
Now that you have the Basics to get the Sam’s, let’s walk through actually taking down one of the Sam’s with the Sprites. You essentially want to use the best combination of Sprite(s) you have to do the most damage to the Sam’s and take down as many Sam’s as you can without wasting the Sprites Damage ability.
Sam starts out at his 20 Heart Meter Points. I have multiple options of Sprites to attack, but I want to take this Sam down as fast as I can so I choose the option of the Q*zard. The Q*zard Sprite comes with a 20 Damage which will completely clear the 20 Heart Points on Sam.
I tap on Sam to bring up the Attack Screen, then I tap on the Q*zard Sprite at the bottom to place it in the path of the Sam.
I take the Q*zard and drag it around my play screen until I can see the Sam I want to attack walking INTO the “Kill Zone Circle” and Sam has turned PURPLE. Once I am sure of this, I tap on the Check Mark.
A red -20 appears as Q*zard Attacks Sam with his 20 Damage Points. (And yes, depending on the direction Sam is going, the number will show up backwards. LOL )
Sam is now completely gone, having all of the 20 Heart Points taken away by the 20 Damage Q*zard. I can then collect my Rewards.
Knowing it is not that easy to get a Q*zard as they are not that common, I will give an example using a combination of the other 2 Sprites. Q*tee & Q*bert.
Sam starts out at his 20 Heart Meter Points. I first select Q*bert from the list of Sprites, moving him around til I know that Sam is coming TOWARD him and wait till the Sam turns PURPLE. Once he does, I tap the Check Mark to apply the Q*bert 8 Damage to Sam.
The Q*bert shows a -8 in Red on the Screen as it causes the 8 Damage to the Sam. (And yes, depending on the direction Sam is going, the number will show up backwards. LOL )
The Sam is now down to 12 Heart Points remaining. (If you are unsure, just tap on them til you see the one with the 12 remaining Hearts.)
Due to I only need 12 more Damage, I select Q*tee who happens to attack with 12 Damage to complete the process. I place her in the path of the 12 Heart Level Sam and wait til he turns PURPLE before tapping the Check Mark. Once Sam is PURPLE, I tap the Check Mark.
A Red -12 shows on the screen as Q*tee does the remaining Damage to Sam. (And yes, depending on the direction Sam is going, the number will show up backwards. LOL )
As this completely drains what is left of Sam’s Heart Meter, the Sam disappears and the Rewards drop out on the Screen.
EXAMPLE #3 & #4
This is honestly options I would try and avoid. I will not go into much detail. In short, I feel it is a waste as you are losing valuable Damage that can be just saved for another time.
You CAN use 3 Q*bert Sprites to attack (8+8+8= 24), but you will lose 4 Damage by doing so.
You CAN use 2 Q*tee Sprites (12-12 = 24), but again… you will lose 4 Damage by doing so.
Your BEST results will happen if you instead just keep collecting Sprites and use these two options:
- 1 Q*zard= 20 Damage and Sam is instantly taken out (20-20=0)
- 1 Q*bert= 8 Damage, leaves 12 remaining on Sam. Then attack a second time with 1 Q*tee= 12 Damage to completely take out Sam (20-8-12=0)
WHAT REWARDS CAN YOU GET FROM SAM?
The Rewards you will see/get will vary depending on what Characters you are currently earning for. The Extra Materials are all Chance. Only Stocking Stuffers and Dream Points dropped every single time.
Here are the Payouts for Sam:
+1 Joysticks (Chance)
+2 Green Balls (Chance)
+5 Stocking Stuffers
+2 Dream Points

There you have the over Basics of Sam, what is needed for him, and how to best take them out.
