EVENT GLITCHES & ISSUES

Questline dialogue glitch continues.

Event buildings are sometimes locked for random players, only TinyCo can fix this so let them know through your game support.

Some random info boxes missing and wrong titles on things, none affecting gameplay.


OTHER GLITCHES & ISSUES

The duplicate and triplicate characters glitch continues. I know I keep saying this but believe me TinyCo are working to try get this sorted. You must contact them as they need fix games on a one by one basis.

Reappearing Questlines – if you can simply redo them, or request TinyCo remove them.

Clam award loop – doesn’t effect play but please let TinyCo know if is happening in your game.

Game crashing on older devices, and those with older/outdated software continues, it may be they can no longer handle the game. What I can tell you is if your device runs on 2gb of ram you may struggle with crashing, if it has less than 2gb ram it probably won’t run at all.


HOW TO CONTACT GAME SUPPORT

There’s 2 ways to do this, The first and best way is through your game main menu, select Help & Support and  then tap ‘Contact Us’.

However if this isn’t possible, then you can contact support via email. The email address to use is – support@jamcity.com

Clearimg GHOSTS MINI-GAME

With the new event we are seeing the return of an old style mini-game.

In order to be able to participate you’ll need to collect a Ghost Duster. Once you have an Ghost Duster just tap on the Ghost Duster Icon in the bottom right of your screen.

After tapping on this, the mini game will appear.

You will see on the top of the screen the Rewards you can win from Ghosts. The amount of Ghost Dusters you have available in the Lower Left. The PICK button in the Lower Right. (If you’ve no Ghost Dusters it will show More) Then in the center, you will see the circle that is essentially your target that you will use to get the Ghosts. You can also see the target is orange, this is because it’s not on a Ghost.

It will turn green once you are on this. Don’t PICK if the target isn’t green as below. You’ll just waste Ghost Dusters.

This is really an “Aim n Shoot” kind of set up. You wait for a minute while the Ghosts float around, then move the circle to target them. It should turn green when a Ghost is properly in target. After previous complaints TinyCo have made the Ghosts smaller than the target so it’s easier to get them, only downside is this will make it harder to target multiple ghosts. But it is still possible, usually to get 2, so be patient and wait until you see a group of Ghosts, probably 2, overlap each other then target them and quickly hit PICK.

To do this put your finger on the Target in the middle of the screen and drag it around to where the group of Ghosts are that you want to get. Try to make sure they are almost on top of each other so you can hit more than one.  Remember you’ve a better chance of clearing more if they are really on top of one another like above. You will then be given Rewards depending on how many Ghosts you destroyed with your Ghost Buster. I’ve managed to destroy 3 at once at most so far. Update, make that 4 with one shot.

The rewards you get will vary on how many Ghosts you destroy at a time.

Per Iceerg Destroyed:
1 Deach Trap or 2 Dearth Trap (Chance)
1 Neckerchief (Chance)


MINI DEATHS

These are the little baddies 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 a Death Trap.you’ll get them from: Clearing Ghosts

Once you have a Death Trap you will find them wandering  around your sidewalks, either finding them by looking or using the squatter button.

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

Then move the Death Trap until the green target circle is on one  but there’s a visual glitch that shows a hole of gears.

Just make sure they are on the Mini Death, then simply hit the check mark to clear it.

I am seeing up to a maximum of 16 in my game.

The event rewards for clearing them is as follows:

Per Mini Death Cleared:
1 Condoms (Chance)
1 Lightning Rod (Chance)


There you have the overall basics to get you started through the first Week of the latest Event. Where are you so far? Anything particular you like the most? Suggestions or tips to fellow players? Let us know.

  1. I’ve had a strange task with Grandpa Munster and Peter. Then there was a pop up that disappeared before I could read it fully, but it said something about companion of the day see quest. There is no quest, I have Grandpa Munster and he has no tasks relating to the event. Very strange.

  2. I have gotten a minimum of 3 ghosts every single time. I got 4 several times. Much better.

  4. Am I wrong or is the storyline I’m seeing reused from the Count Crotchula character we got previously?

      • Glitched? Or did they just reuse last year’s story? I fell like they don’t have writers anymore…

          • They. Use have fired their artists and writers to save money. Everything is recycled — the artwork, the characters, etc. I almost have Chad and am almost to Part 7. I hope to finish The Whole thing by Saturday night or Sunday at the latest.

            • TinyCo still have writers, yes the game will have a reduced team from its early days, that’s perfectly normal as the game will be making less income, let’s not kid ourselves it’s TinyCo’s biggester earnng gane, and no company can afford to have their top team on a game that brings in very little money. But rather than end the game they’ve kept it going, and I’m sure many will agree they’ve even made some improvements in support. In some ways it’s similar to this blog, those that enjoyed writing when it had millions of readers have long gone, there’s just me now, but I don’t do this for the blog reach glory, I donthis as I’m a player the same as everyone else who enjoys helping out. And even if there’s a day there is only a handful of players reading this I’ll be here to help them play where I can. We are fortunate to still be getting regular content as other games of this type are not, including Tapped Out which is run by one of the biggest gaming houses around. Yes the event formats will be recycled, as is most other games of this type, but I’m not sure how you can say in this event the characters are recycled as Chad and Thomas Edison haven’t been released as characters before. Also players said they didn’t want lots of useless costumes so I took this to TinyCo and they’ve released mostly characters since. So they are trying to listen. I don’t always agree with that they do, and I’ll say that but I think considering the age of the game I’m happy to see it continuing.

              For you in particular, to be fair you’ve got fast forward in your game which allows you to complete the event content within a few days, but yet you are still not enjoying it, perhaps because the game is now so easy you’re forgetting how others need to concentrate more on drops etc rather than amount coins they have etc. There are many players who don’t have the FF feature and due to the Ghost Duster drops were still stuck on Part 1 yesterday whereas your complaint is about the content when your almost finished for the week, I will always take feedback to TinyCo, and try to give readers what they ask, but I’m sorry but my priority just now is feeding back drops concerns so players can also earn the characters you do easily.

              I am sorry if this sounds a bit fed up, but it’s not only a response to you, it’s a general response in that I honestly don’t get if the game doesn’t make you happy, or you are fed up with event recycling then why you keep playing. Maybe that would make a good poll.

              Anyway back to Brexit…..

  5. I was able to clear 4 on my first try, though I did have to wait a while for them to line up. Be patient! 😊
