A Look In The Rear Week 5 Overview

Let’s Party Like It’s 1999!!!

The time travelling TV is still active and ready to take you another trip down memory lane. Yes it’s  time to go on a new adventure in Week 5 of A Look In The Rear.


EVENT ENDS

10th October 2018 at 3PM PDT.

You can see the countdown timer for the event and other details by clicking on the Event Info Icon at the bottom of your screen.


ADDICTS ANNOUNCEMENTS & INFORMATION

Remember you can only place buildings etc in the event area time they belong in, ie 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s or 90’s. When the event ends they will all then be placed in your inventory.

Again one freemium character to unlock this week. But he’s a good one.

The TV Guide Week 1, 2, 3 & 4 Achievements can still be completed, in fact I recommend it even if you don’t want the prize, as you can still trade up  previous decades currencies.

Clam TV is back, but remember not everyone sees it in their game at the same time.

Theres a new Mystery Box full of old characters and costumes, more on that in another post.


CURRENT APP VERSION

Version 1.76.6


NOTICEABLE CHANGES

New 1990’s time to travel to.


GLITCHES & ISSUES

I’m not personally experiencing any new ones this week. But the Backup Dancers can be confusing as it’s difficult to find the sane one to hit again if you’re using Da Funk to clear them.

If you are having any new issues let me know in the comments.

EVENT AREA IN QUAHOG

There is still just 1 item up in the usual event area and it’s the fantastic transporting device, The Cursed TV.  This will allow you to travel back to yesterday years, including the new 1990’s.

Be aware most things you need to do this week will be done in 1990’s Quahog not in your standard Quahog. This includes some items in the store only showing up when you’re in 1990’s Quahog. But don’t neglect your duties back in the other decades if you want to trade up currencies and complete the TV Guide tasks.


1990’s QUAHOG

By tapping on the Cursed TV in the event area or tapping the TV icon in the lower right corner of your game screen you can “travel” back in time to the 1990’s event area, here’s where you’ll earn stuff  and acquire items to further help you along in the event.

.

To go to 1990’s Quahog, just select it from the Cursed TV screen, then tap “Let’s Go” and you will now be taken to an alternate play area. (And remember to return to your bog standard Quahog or go to another decade you just use the Cursed TV again, only selecting whichever of them as your destination).

Once there you will notice a hammer to “repair” in 1990’s Quahog as you progress. This is for the character Horace . Repair him ASAP and get collecting.

As well as this you’ll all the usual event content such as buildings and baddies to defeat. And I’ll be breaking all this down below.


CLAM CITY APPLIANCE SHOP

Clam City is where you will trade the Event Currency you collect while playing the game to unlock Buildings & Decorations to use to further your game play in the Event.

Here are the items you can unlock during Week Three…

1990’s Drunken Clam: Chance drop of 2 Bar Napkins every 4hrs
Cost~ 70 Benjamins

Welcome To Quahog Sign: No drops
Cost~ 50 Benjamins

1990’s Griffin Hoise: Chance drop of 2 Fabric every 4hrs
Cost~ 125 Benjamins

1990’s Goldman’s Pharmacy: Chance drop of 2 Dirty Rag every 8hrs
Cost~ 178 Benjamins

1970’s McBurgertown: Chance drop of 2 Bar Napkins every 4hrs
Cost~ 233 Benjamins


CLAM GARDEN

This will be you’ll trade your items, it’s essentially a “Crafting” area where you will combine materials to make the Banana Perls you need to trip the Break Dancer and the Unicycles for unlocking Horace..

 Glitter 

Needed to craft: 4 CDs

Time to manufacture: 1hr 30min

 Da Funk    

Needed to craft: 2 Boombox

Time to manufacture: 2hrs   

 Apron (Always): Get from Crafting in the Clam Garden

Needed to craft: 2 Fabric

Time to manufacture: 1hr 30mins

You can be crafting up to 6 items in the Products Queue at a time. If the queue is full you will have to wait until one finishes before adding more into the Queue.

Basically just like previous weeks all you need to do is collect the necessary materials and then select the item you want to manufacture. Once you start manufacturing you’ll see items preparing in the section on the right. The clam cost to speed them up is also shown there.

And here’s a reminder of where you’ll get the materials you need for crafting:

 Boombox (Common) –  Get from Jerome Listen To Some R&B, Connie Bully A Nerd, Brian Drive An Economy Car

 Fabric (Common) –  Get from Peter Wear A Starter Jacket, Lois Idolize A Boy Band, 1990’s Griffin House  

 CDs (Always) –  Get from clearing Sk8er Boi, 1990’s Stereo Boom Bike


SK8erBoi

You will be able to start seeing Sk8erbois in your 1990’s Quahog when you trigger Pt. 2 of the main Questline.  

You will find them wandering your 1990’s Quahog Playspace, so look there and you will find them. I’ve only had 6 max available at any one time, and they seemed to be released in my game every 4 hours. Be aware if you place a Sidewalk that’s where they will gather.

Clearing them is pretty simple, you need Herbert, he has a 3 hour task to do this.

Firstly make sure there is a Sk8erboi in your town and send Herbert to clear him, you can access his task either by clicking on his profile or by clicking on a Sk8erboi and tapping GO.

Character Used:
Herbert

Task Time: 3hrs

The task you’re looking for is Slam The Sk8erboi.

As I said it takes 3 hours to clear each  and you can see the task progress by clicking on the character during their task. Once the character has completed  you it will auto complete and you can gather your rewards.

Per Sk8erboi Cleared:
6 CDs (Always)
1 Pint Glass (Always)


Backup Dancers

You will be able to start seeing Backup Dancers in your 1990’s Quahog when you trigger Pt. 2 of the main Questline.

Like Backup Dancers you will find them wandering your 1990’s Quahog Playspace, so look there and you will find them. Be aware if you place a Sidewalk that’s where they will gather. and you will find them. I’ve only had 8 max available at any one time, and they seemed to be released in my game every 4 hours.

These are the other baddies in this week of the event and are quite simple to deal with, it’s just more of the tap, aim and fire we’ve seen in previous events. Before you can clear them you’ll need to get some Glitter or Da Funk, you’ll get them here:

 Glitter (Always) – Get from Crafting in the Clam Garden

 Da Funk (Always) – Get from Crafting in the Clam Garden   

Once you have a Glitter or Da Funk you will find Backup Dancers wandering on your 1990’s sidewalks.

Simply tap one of them to bring up the targeting screen.

Now you’ll see something different from the previous baddies, there’s the 2 items to attack him with and he has a heart level, it’s 4. Basically you’ll need either 2 Da Funks or 1 Glitter to clear them, as Da Funk do to 2 Heart Damage and a Glitter does 4. So if you Hut him with 1 Da Funk, in the usual way. Move the Da Funk until the green target circle is on a Backup Dancer, you’ll know it’s in target as it will turn purple, then simply hit the check mark to damage  the Backup Dancer.

If you tap him again you’ll now see his Heart Level is down to 2. So you need hit him with another Da Funk. Don’t use a Glitter, save that for full health Backup Dancers.

Now finding the same Backup Dancer to hit is a pain in the rear, it took me ages as they dart around so much.

Now as I mentioned the best way to clear Backup Dancers is Glitter as 1 of these takes him right out. Just tap, aim and fire as usual.

So remember:

 Glitter – Does 4 Heart Damage, clearing the Backup Dancer instantly

 Da Funk – Does 2 Heart Damage, clearing the Backup Dancer in 2 hits, but make sure you hit the same one.    

I am seeing up to a maximum of 8 in my game.

The event rewards for clearing Backup Dancers are as follows:

Per Backup Dancer Cleared
1 Benjamin (Always)
1 Bow Tie (Chance)

Think of this as a “CHECK LIST” of items that will help you gather resources for the Event.
