Monetization Liberation Pt. 1

Auto starts

Homer HeadIt’s the 4th of July! Time to grab my secret stash of illegal fireworks from their hiding place!
70px-Tapped_Out_Lisa_IconYou kept a box of fireworks hidden behind the basement furnace?
Homer HeadYes, but, see, I put this this heavy can of gasoline on top of the box, so that if any ka-booms happened, the explodey parts wouldn’t be able to get out. Safe!
70px-Tapped_Out_Lisa_IconYou’re a nuclear safety engineer, right?
Homer Head…*Long Pause*
Homer HeadYes.
70px-Tapped_Out_Lisa_IconYou had to think about that a long time.
Homer HeadI did. Anyway, time to “inspect” some of these little guys in the backyard! Ka-boom!

Task: Make Homer “Safety Inspect” Fireworks
Time: 4h

70px-Tapped_Out_Lisa_IconYou’re not really “inspecting” those fireworks so much as you are “lighting them with a match held in your teeth.”
Homer HeadThat’s how the pros do it.
Homer HeadAnyway, the only way to properly test fireworks is to set off so many the sky shines like a beacon!
Tapped_Out_Kang_Icon…a beacon that is easily noticeable by any Class IX Rigellian Battle Cruisers that happen to be passing through your pathetic solar system!

Monetization Liberation Pt. 2

Lisa starts

Tapped_Out_Kang_IconIt’s Kang! Not all Rigellians look alike, you know. That’s super-insulting. Super-duper-times-infinity insulting, oh tiny human intellect!
70px-Tapped_Out_Lisa_IconSorry. Kind of sensitive about that, aren’t you?
Tapped_Out_Kang_IconSilence! *Long Pause* Please.
Tapped_Out_Kang_IconJust because your vile species is about to be death-rayed out of existence, that’s no reason for me to be rude. So, please be silent, you insignificant worm.
70px-Tapped_Out_Lisa_IconYou’re going to destroy our planet? Why?
Tapped_Out_Kang_IconThat series of explosions you just sent up is Intergalactic Signal Light Morse Code for “please obliterate my irrelevant planet immediately.”
70px-Tapped_Out_Lisa_IconWe take it back! Dad, tell the nice alien we take it back!

Task: Make Lisa Try to Solve the Latest Crisis
Time: 4h
Location: Simpson Home
Task: Make Homer Play Happy Little Elves
Time: 4h

At this point a little surprise will appear in the game: Kang, the alien from the Treehouse of Horror / Halloween events, will be unlocked for free and will partecipate in the questline. People who have Kang already will of course immediatly continue the questline as soon as they tap on the question mark.

Monetization Liberation Pt. 3

Kang starts

Homer HeadHuh? Oh, sorry, sweetie. I was just playing the “Happy Little Elves” game on my phone. It’s super-addictive.
Tapped_Out_Kang_IconI know, right? So good…
Homer HeadI didn’t realize aliens played it too!
Tapped_Out_Kang_IconIt just came out in the Palm O.S. app store two days ago. For some reason, we always get stuff late.
70px-Tapped_Out_Lisa_IconUh, maybe because nobody still uses Palm phones.
Tapped_Out_Kang_IconAll on Rigel use Palm! Palm is the superior form of mobile telephony! All hail Palm!
Tapped_Out_Kang_IconNow I must use my Palm to program in the coordinates for the death ray strike! Prepare to perish!

Task: Make Kang Activate the Death Ray
Time: 4h

Monetization Liberation Pt. 4

Kang starts

Tapped_Out_Kang_IconOkay, Kang. Time to program that death ray. Work, work, work.
Tapped_Out_Kang_IconHmm… maybe just a few minutes with the Happy Little Elves game first. Just a quick visit to my town. Then, I’ll get some serious work done.
Homer HeadLook at Kang’s town! He’s been playing just two days, and it’s already way cooler than mine!
Homer HeadHe must be spending a fortune! And spending lots of money to rush builds is a form of cheating.
Homer HeadEr, but not when you do it, Sky Finger. Go on splashing that cash.

Task: Make Homer Trash Talk a Fellow Gamer
Time: 12h

Tapped_Out_Kang_IconWhat’s this? A message from a fellow Happy Little Elves player?
Tapped_Out_Kang_IconWow. That is… a whole lot of misspelled profanity.

Monetization Liberation Pt. 5

Kang starts

Tapped_Out_Kang_IconHow dare you question my spending habits, human spendthrift! Now I will program my death ray to wipe your kind from the galaxy!
Homer HeadWeren’t you supposed to do that hours ago?
Tapped_Out_Kang_IconI know! But this holiday event demands the constant attention of my vastly superior intelligence! Blast these mobile games!
Homer HeadHey! If we’re elf-friends we can gift each other berries to get through the event faster! I can’t seem to buy them anymore.
Marge HeadI had to put the parental locks on. You kept maxing out the credit cards!

Task: Make Homer Friend Request Kang
Time: 2h

Homer HeadLook, Lisa! Kang friended me! You remember Kang, right?
70px-Tapped_Out_Lisa_IconBig green guy? About to murder you and everyone you love?
Frink IconGreat glayvin! If Kang friended Homer, there may be a way to use the connection to hack into the Rigellian Master Computer!
70px-Tapped_Out_Lisa_IconYou mean, like they did in “Independence Day?” Wasn’t that the dumbest plot point in an already-dumb movie?
Frink IconIt certainly was! I hope it works as implausibly for us as it did for them!

Monetization Liberation Pt. 6

Lisa starts

Frink IconGood news! I have cloned Homer’s account to every mobile device in Springfield! And loaded them all with elf berries.
Frink IconIf we all spam Kang’s phone with elf berries, we can crash the alien computer network!
70px-Tapped_Out_Lisa_IconQuick, everyone! Execute this idiotic plan that was devised by lazy writers who have absolutely no clue how computers work!
70px-Tapped_Out_Lisa_IconThey’re unwillingness to come up with a more believable twist to this story may just save us all!

Task: Make Springfielders Send Kang Elf Berries [x10]
Time: 4h
Location: Brown House

On job start:

Tapped_Out_Kang_IconWhat’s this? An influx of elf berries!
Tapped_Out_Kang_IconI’ll use them to buy more gold, usurious exchange rate be damned!

Monetization Liberation Pt. 7

Kang starts

Tapped_Out_Kang_IconGreat Krandor’s tentacles! The influx of elf berries has overloaded my entire system! Not that that makes any sense whatsoever!
70px-Tapped_Out_Lisa_IconLook, Kang’s UFO is falling from the sky!
Homer HeadWoo-hoo! We did it!
Homer HeadNow to do the only thing Americans still do well: channel all our rage at illegal aliens.
sidebar_quimbyHold on, now. There’s some paperwork involved in kicking aliens out of the country. Shouldn’t require more than fifteen years or so.
Tapped_Out_Kang_IconFoolish humans! It was my plan all along to get trapped here by your painfully slow bureaucracy.
Tapped_Out_Kang_IconAlso, I’m going to take all your jobs! We Rigellians work cheap!
Tapped_Out_Kang_IconAnd with all these elf berries, I shall dominate your Happy Little Elf leaderboards for all time!!!!

Task: Make Kang 8-Hour Evil Laugh
Time: 8h

System Message: For saving Springfield, have a Patriotic Box of Fireworks on the house.

This is all for now, but don’t forget to log in on July 4th for a special surprise.
